A bit about Anne, Dating Consultant and MD

What makes you laugh?

Anne cycled the Nile and climbed Mt Kenya

I like situation work placed comedy with a twist, like Green Wing, Dinner Ladies and IT Crowd.  I like to have my silly moments, so anything as long as it is not too dark!  I have to confess that a big reason I fell in love with my husband was because he laughed at my jokes!

What are your greatest achievements?

  • Joining my local musical theatre group and performing on stage
  • Cycling in Egypt and raising over £4k for Sir Robert Winston’s Women for Women charity.
  • Reaching the peak of Mount Kenya after a three-day climb.
  • Visiting the mountain gorillas in Rwanda and completing the Great Gorilla Run - that's me with Bill Oddie, right.
  • And, of course, turning RSVP into the best dating agency in the UK!

What music do you like?

I love things that touch the soul – The Lark Ascending, Barber’s Adagio for Strings or Song for Athene.

I also like a wider range of pop and folk music: Doobie Brothers; 10CC; ELO; Bellowhead, and I especially love being caught up in the atmosphere of a live concert.

Whatever it is, I like it when it makes you feel something - sad, happy etc.

Each summer, I give myself a break from work by volunteering at a couple of the smaller folk festivals.

What do you like to read?

Anne's favourite reads

A bit like my taste in music, I like things that transport you away from the present.  I love it when I have a book on the go that I just can’t put down.  I do particularly enjoy thrillers and detective novels, but I’ll read anything with a good story.  Once I get my teeth into a novelist that I like, I do tend to read everything I can by them. Recent discoveries have included Jacqueline Winspear and Andrew Martin.

What’s your perfect day?

A warm day – about 22-26 degrees would be perfect but if not it must be sunny, cold and crisp! I’d get up late, take a long walk, go to the pub for lunch.  Walk back to where we are staying for a cream tea late afternoon. When the sun goes down the temperature would fall so we need to light the fire and sit and watch an old movie. Then I’d cook a lovely dinner! I have to say Christmas Day is my perfect day!

What’s your favourite film?

What, only one?  I couldn’t choose one, but my favourite films include: Groundhog Day; Philadelphia Story with Cary Grant; His Girl Friday or Brief Encounter.  I am, at heart, a romantic, but don’t tell anyone.  Although, I do like a good sci-fi too – like Star Trek, of course, and JJ Abram's The Fringe.

Do you like to travel?

I’m pretty well travelled and I love to explore new places and environments. I’ve been to Africa – Kenya; Uganda and Rwanda. I loved exploring Egypt and seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland. I’ve also been whale watching in the Azores. I adore San Francisco and the fantastic coastline to the north. I’d still like to go to the Galapagos and Antarctic, but I do agonise over my eco footprint and I am rather conscious of polluting the atmosphere by flying these days. But that's okay, because I absolutely love exploring the Uk - and especially Scotland - so, as long as I can spend some time there, I am pretty happy!

Anne conducts the occasional interview when we get really busy, plus she acts as Director of Matchmaking for Platinum Plus members.
