I decided to give eHarmony a try after several frustrating attempts to find someone to love, admire, cherish and respect for the rest of my life. I did everything I could think of to be available, aware and receptive to any opportunity that may come my way.
I gave some online dating services some thought and settled on eHarmony because I felt it was the most reliable online service of them all. I had taken advantage of the free weekend promotion months before I signed up, and was impressed by all the matches I received. I also thought it was a great place to meet men who were looking for the same thing I was, a serious and fulfilling relationship, not just a convenient setup.
I loved the personality profile and the comfort of knowing the men I was talking to shared similar values, beliefs and hopefully a compatible personality. So I joined and hoped for the best. I was matched with tons of guys but allowed few to get to the point of open communication. I thought that time was running short and that I probably wouldn’t find anybody through eHarmony when I was matched with Travis.
I was totally taken by his profile picture right away. All of his pictures were amazing to me. I thought he was gorgeous! He had the most dazzling smile and I couldn’t wait to write to him and hear all about him. He initiated conversation with me and we quickly moved through the initial question and answer phase and moved into open communication. We emailed for about 2 weeks before we finally met.
The open communication phase was so exciting. I found out so much about him and fell in love with his openness and genuineness. This was what I was looking for in the beginning. I had actually put that on my profile and it was awesome to feel that radiating from his words.
He asked for my phone number and I was so incredibly excited. I was too nervous to answer when he called, so I began texting him from work the next day. It was so cute. We both love music and decided to get together for a free concert in downtown Salt Lake City. We met for the first time at a restaurant beforehand. He looked amazing and I was totally taken by his smile and sweetness. I was a little nervous at dinner, but we had a really great time and I felt comfortable enough with him to go to the concert afterwards. It was such an amazing first date. He was so interested in everything I had to say and was laughing at all my stories. It was a beautiful day and we talked and enjoyed the music and each other. This was the absolute best date I had ever been on and I knew that this was the beginning of something special.
I can’t believe how perfect he is for me. You wait and wish for the right person to come around half believing that it is impossible. But it is truly amazing to be with the person who fits you so wonderfully. It has got to be one of the best feelings in the world to have found that person. I really look forward to the rest of my life with him. Thanks eHarmony!!!
