myLovelyParent was set up by Matt Connolly.
Chatting through business ideas with his mum, a gorgeous single lady in her 60s, she suggested he helped ‘find her knight in shining armour’.
Matt, doing what all good sons would do, set to work.
Over the next few months he started to develop the idea. He spoke with hundreds of people and realised he wasn’t alone in wanting his mum to meet someone special.
He also knew that if he created this from the ground up then he could make it was as safe and easy to use as it could ever possibly be. Somewhere he’d be happy to recommend to his own mum.
The more people heard about it, the more encouragement and support he got. From people all around the world.
“Your idea is ground breaking. I have been trying to help my mom with online dating for years but my efforts are so far futile.”
“Been trying to find someone for my mother in law forever!”
“This is such a lovely idea :) I’m going to tell my daughter about your site and her boyfriend who has a lovely singe mum too! Who knows where this adventure could take us!"
"I asked my son to sign me up. I didn’t really expect him to be willing - he’s in college, very busy & still just 19 years old! I could not believe what he wrote - I am so moved by his testimonial about me, which would not have happened without YOU! I’m sure you are going to hear this A LOT, but this may be one of your first & most meaningful expressions of gratitude! Thank you for launching this site! Even if I don’t meet a mate, it means so much to me to hear my son’s view of me. This is truly priceless.
Matt - I hope you find this encouraging & re-read it when things are difficult (as they will inevitably be). My Lovely Parent will be a smashing success! It already IS!”
The site is now available in the Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, United Kingdom and the United States, and has thousands of members.
Please enjoy myLovelyParent and don’t forget to tell as many people as you can!
