‘It’s been a brilliant adventure, we can’t wait to see what comes next.”

You know we love seeing you on dates, we also love finding out about how the dating adventure came about. So we were delighted when Gemma and Matt agreed to share how their A Year of Dates box has helped their new relationship survive – and thrive – during lockdown.

When Gemma Draycott and Matt Holt got together in autumn 2020 it was hard to find ideas for dates in the face of ongoing coronavirus restrictions and then a national lockdown.

But when Matt bought Gemma the original weekly A Year of Dates box for Christmas it meant lockdown dating suddenly became much more enjoyable, and the dating cards led the couple on a series of adventures they hadn’t expected.

Matt explained: “I saw the box on a Facebook post and thought it looked intriguing. We both enjoy visiting new places and having new experiences, but that was made harder by the various restrictions.

“But I thought it would work well, as we could do date one on 1 January 2021 and then spend a year doing the different dates and having fun in spite of the lockdown situation.”

The first card the pair drew suggested a picnic – which they embraced wholeheartedly, despite the freezing weather.
