Success with Plenty More Silver Fish

Here at the Plenty More Fish towers nothing makes us happier than finding out that our members have had success on our site – afterall, that’s what we’re here for. So when we got this lovely success story from Lynne and Roy we were over the moon.

“We met for the first time in Decemeber and knew straight away that we felt we had met someone special. It was a lovely Christmas present! Since then our relationship is going from strength to strength and we are both so happy in each others company.

I’m sure you’ll all join us in saying a huge congratulations to Lynne and Roy and wishing them all the best for their future together.

Why not log into your account on Plenty More Fish and see if you can find that special person.


Romance In The Animal Kingdom

Sometimes, too much dating advice and information can become a little tedious. I feel like it’s time to post something a little fun. Everyone loves cute animal pictures, right? Well, hopefully.

I came across a some fascinating animal pictures and it looks to me like we could learn a few tips from our furry friends.

These pictures are bound to brighten a dreary Monday. Purrrfect! 😉

Have fairy tales given you an unrealistic view of love and relationships?

I recently came across a 2008 university study discussing the way Rom-Coms can help to promote unrealistic expectations  about  love and relationships. They found that we are influenced by portrayals in the media – more than we realise.

This made me wonder whether love and relationship expectations could stem even further than this? I remembered all the Disney movies I used to watch as a kid, my burning desire to run (or fly) off into the sunset with Aladdin and my dream for thinner, more lady-like feet so I could easily slip them into THAT dainty glass slipper.

Without hesitation, I created a poll and took to Plenty More Fish fans and followers on Twitter and Facebook. As you can see a whopping 62% of you reckon fairy tales do give out an unrealistic view of love and relationships.

Phew, so it’s not just me.

Thanks to my childhood obsession with Disney films I’m adamant I adopted an unrealistic view of love and relationships from a very early age. Prince charming rescuing you and dropping everything to be with you, sure. Being able to date a beauty even though you look like an angry hairy beast, absolutely. Stealing the heart of a handsome prince regardless of being half girl, half fish, of course. Oh and sharing a bowl of spaghetti bolognaise could in fact be the most romantic thing you’ll ever do.

The latter-  not true, for sure.

I was/still am SO jealous of Cinders!

I’m not saying BAN DISNEY…I LOVE Disney and I’m not saying you can’t live happily ever after. I just think perhaps they should’ve come up with a sequel to Cinderella, Beauty & The Beast, Aladin, The Lady & The Tramp…etc and show that relationships actually need work. When the honeymoon period is over, most relationships have there ups and downs and good communication is absolutely key.

Oh and DON’T get me started on period dramas. 😉

PlentyMoreFish saw a Boost in Members after Royal Announcement!

The Happy Couple 🙂

So, the long wait is over. After nine years of courtship, Prince William is going to marry his girlfriend Kate Middleton and the wedding is set to happen on the 29th April giving us all 4-day weekend! HURRAH!

Here at the PlentyMore Towers, we have been looking over the boring stuff (i.e. Figures and trends) and saw a humongous boost in new members on the day of Katie and Will’s royal announcement- a whopping 63% increase in fact!

So this engagement has certainly got many of you going all gooey! Perhaps these figures are showing a romantic atmosphere sweeping over the country-  certainly a nicer thought than the recession sweeping over for the past couple of years! Go romance GO!

Congrats Kate & Wills! Love is now officially in the air.
