Mark met Jessica on RUO: "She had a nice profile picture with a big smile and she liked the same sports as me. We decided to meet up. She was lovely, smart and great fun to be around. She has really been great for me."

This strange saga may now be revealed in full:

Dear "Cupid", I am writing with what is perhaps an unusual request. Oxford Romance is a fantastic site and has provided me with several happy dates and a couple of fun relationships, and has served its purpose brilliantly. However, with impending exams which constitute a large proportion of my finals, this site will be my doom! I am of rather an addictive personality and am finding that I am spending increasingly large amounts of time on your website, to the point where I believe my work would improve considerably if I left the website. I know, however, that if I do this, in a moment of weakness, I shall undoubtedly rejoin (I have had 7 profiles over the past 2 terms!) and thus I am appealing to you to add me to your list of addresses which are blocked from joining the website. I appreciate that this probably sounds rather extreme, but I would be very grateful if you would do so and feel free to quote the above as a testimonial should you wish to! My email addresses that I may use to join are [details removed] and [details removed] and please block them both if possible! I may be contacted at either address should you wish to affirm that I am genuine and have not just hacked into this account or something! Many thanks for your help. Best wishes, S

Following my email of 13th May requesting to be barred from the Oxford Romance website during my exams, I have now finished my exams. I would now be grateful if you would remove my name (S) from the list of barred names so that I can re-join the website for the rest of this term and the coming year. Many thanks again for helping earlier; it was very successful in helping me revise! Best wishes, S

This is one of the many happy outcomes to which we have contributed.  :-)

News and updates:

8th October: Welcome to our New Members! See you at the Freshers' Fair: chocolate and roses.
3rd October: Welcome to a new term! And, to our new members, a particularly warm welcome: we hope we help you find love :-) If you would like to get involved with the society, and with running events, please contact Cupid.
As it's the start of a new year, it may take a short time to get going: in particular, if you are a new member, please do take a moment to write a little about yourself... otherwise everyone waits for everyone else to make the first move!
12th June: We have just received a (significant) amount of sponsorship. So, we'd like to recruit a membership, publicity and marketing cherub to the RUO committee. The funding is sufficient to cover design and distribution of posters/flyers etc and any more imaginative ideas that occur to you. There is also some funding to cover your time. If you're interested, please contact Cupid.
