Watch Saskia's love story unfold in her Love Zone posts


We asked Saskia if we could share some of her posts in the Love Zone, showing her love story unfold from her first date with herself, to daring to sign up to tinder, to getting engaged to a guy she met on her first three tinder dates...

I’ve been focusing on the self-love phase of the course for the last few weeks and I’ve absolutely loved it. For the first time, I’m finding I don’t NEED attention and acceptance from others as I’m giving myself the love I craved. I told my best friend that I wasn’t looking for a relationship at the moment as I was focusing on me. She nearly spat out her tea and exclaimed “I’ve been waiting for so long for you to say that, this is great news!”.

Tomorrow I have my date with myself booked. Lunch at a nice restaurant in Windsor followed by watching a Ballet I used to enjoy as a child - Coppelia. I haven’t been to a Ballet for years, I’m excited! I’ll let you know how it goes! 😊

So, I put myself in tinder today and created a profile which I hope presents me authentically. I’ve been using the tips from the how to use internet dating the right way podcast to aid my swiping. It’s amazing how many guys don’t say a thing about themselves on there! Anyway, I’ve matched up with a couple of guys I thought looked friendly and have dates booked with them next weekend and the following week! 😊

As promised I thought I’d let you know how my first 3 tinder dates went.

Date 1: we went to a cafe and sat in the sun drinking lemonade and eating cake. I had a lovely afternoon of intelligent conversation with a guy who asked lots of questions about me and the conversation flowed well. I had zero sexual attraction to him but was surprised how much I enjoyed the afternoon. We’ve decided to stay friends

Date 2: we watched an acoustic guitarist play at a local bar. A really genuine guy who wasn’t afraid to show his vulnerable side (not in a sissy way though!). I felt happy and relaxed around him. The conversation again flowed well and we were both smiling a lot. He has a good sense of humour. At the end of the date he walked my back to my car - bonus points for being a gent!! I’m seeing him again next week!

Date 3: we played mini golf and then went for a drink. Mini golf was a great way to break the ice and suss out each other’s competitive side! I was losing miserably at one point so he decided to change the scoring system to give me more of an advantage - very sweet. However, when it came to just chatting the conversation struggled a bit and even got negative with him moaning about his job and people he worked with. I didn’t feel we had a connection. I’ve decided not to see him again.

Today, I am celebrating my one year anniversary with Dan who I met when I started the dating phase of ‘Get ready for Love’. He is the most caring, kind and considerate man I’ve ever met and has an amazing sense of humour to go with it. Project love is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself, and for all of those beginning the course, you’ve got great things to come. Sending lots of love on this special day.

I have some exciting love story hit new heights last evening when Dan (who I met during the dating phase of my project love journey) proposed! He got down on one knee in Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen which is lit up with thousands of fairy lights this time of year. He’s given me a ‘placeholder’ ring; a simple and elegant love knot ring by a Danish designer. I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Project Love for helping me get to this moment xxx
