Successes:

Never write off Ox Ro. Persistence in my case eventually paid off with someone who fulfills what were my wildest dreams.

Invisible Man says: "Have found a lovely girl on OxRo, no longer needed!" When asked for more details, this was his reply: "Didn't expect too much when I first signed up - slightly sceptical as you'd expect but after only a brief stay on the site I found the girl who has everything I've been looking for - all my ideals rolled into one. Highly recommend the site to anyone who may be sceptical - nothing to lose and believe me - a whole lot to gain. Everything is going fantastic 1 month on and hope for lots more good times to come, thanks for your help!"

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

8th October 2014: The Freshers' Fair is this week (Wed-Fri). Do come to say hello. Volunteers who can help out would be extremely welcome!
7th October 2014: 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 OxfordRomance President, Abbas.
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 May 2014: We have just received a (significant) amount of sponsorship. So, we'd like to recruit a membership, publicity and marketing cherub to the Oxrom 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.
16th November 2012: A big thank you to all who came speed dating - you raised £98 for Students Supporting Street Kids! Keep a look out for more exciting events coming up in Hilary term... and if you'd like to get more involved or just have some great ideas feel free to drop us a line :)
10th October 2012: Welcome to all our new members from the Freshers' Fair. Have fun!
Also, we've changed the default style to the "claret" theme... please send feedback to Cupid if you spot any problems. (If you prefer the old one, you can change it back on your settings page).
