While the house was being built, using my computer and IT skills I started a property website as I could see that there was a real lack of easy-to-use, professional looking sites. Since then I have helped scores of people also find their dream home in Spain.
Anyway, I replied to her, again with not a lot of hope. To cut a long story short, 5 months later, we are about to move into our first apartment together and can't believe our luck in finding each other.
That is all down to Costadating and we would like to say thank you so much for being there.
"Hi Guys, You may remember me from February time when I joined Costadating but was not with you for very long? A couple of days after I first signed on, I got a message left for me from a lady member of your site -much to my surprise I have to admit!
Sorry, but I never really thought anything would come of joining a website, particularly after all the stories you hear. ) Well, surprise, surprise, she agreed to go out in Palma (where she lived) for a coffee the following evening and we got on like the proverbial house on fire.
It is amazingly green and lush which would surprise many people who don’t know this area of Spain. My first step was to go on an inspection trip to the Torrevieja area.
Honestly for me it was a disappointment, I didn’t find what I was looking for.
Of course highly paid also meant long hours, deadlines and lots of travelling.
It really took its toll, to the extent that at 27 I had a heart scare and from then I knew things had to change.
I know this must be difficult to talk about but it has to be said – I have noticed just how many relationships seem to break up in Spain. The situation is magnified because in the UK many couples are working and don’t see each other for very long.
In Spain maybe for the first time ever they are together 24 hours a day and cracks can appear.
Well probably like many other people it was a lifestyle decision due to my intense working hours and high levels of stress.
