I am so pleased to write and tell you about the amazing couple you brought together … actually, a whole family.
I joined eHarmony in November and by December I was on my first date with the love of my life. The interesting and beautiful thing about how we came to meet: We were both out of our element a bit. I only joined on a whim and was very skeptical. We’re both divorced. Bobby was looking to date again after his divorce. He needed adult time as he has primary custody of his 12-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son.
Every “flex” match that I received showing that someone already had children, I deleted or did not respond to. I didn’t know anything about children. Wanted my own, but hadn’t thought of “steps.” I kept coming back to Bobby’s profile. I don’t know why! Bobby almost deleted me because I took too long to respond.
Finally, we began the process and then were emailing before long. We had our first in-person date on December 27, 2007. Then he left town for two weeks. During that time we built on what we’d learned online and by phone we learned so much. As a very protective and “super” dad, he had indicated that I wouldn’t meet the children for a few months … if this went further.
Well, I met them on the third “date” and just like with Bobby and me, it was instant! It’s not that we have so many things in common, but that we are the perfect compliment to each other. After going through so many other things in life, we knew what we were looking for and probably didn’t expect to ever find that just-right one. But we have.
We knew from the start that this was “it.” And boy is it! We are so grateful to you! The joy and love we feel has really spilled to those around us and several friends have joined up! We do feel like you’ve made a whole family match this time! Thank you for helping our dreams come true!
