eHarmony, #1 Trusted Relationship site


Janelle and Matthew

Location: New York, NY, Canberra, Australia
Married: September 8th, 2008

I didn't really believe in online dating and always thought I wouldn't get married (even though I did want to).  I started making positive changes in my life at the start of 2008, and decided that I was ready for a relationship if one came to me, but I would not seek it out.  Then one day after hearing countless ads for a 'free personality profile from e-harmony' I decided to see what they had to say about my personality.  I didn't join the site. I just read my profile and forgot about it.  A week later I checked the email that I had used to get the profile and I had numerous matches that had been sent to me.  Curiosity got the best of me and I went to look at them.  For a few weeks I would read the matches but still had not joined the site.  Then finally one day I decided that I wanted to be able to communicate with some of my matches and joined the site for 3 months. 

Nothing was really going anywhere with any of my matches, and I started to think that internet dating really didn't work.  I still read the email matches though I didn't really think I would find anyone that would interest me.  On the 18th Matthew and I got matched.  I viewed his profile and was instantly intrigued I hoped he would message me and a few days later he did. 

Within a month we were communicating over the phone.  We both knew the distance was an issue but we were really starting to fall in love.  We both manifested that we wanted to be together and I started saving the money for the trip to Australia to see Matthew.  He surprised me in saying he was paying for my ticket to see him.  Once I got here we decided that we didn't want to be apart. 

Finding Matthew and getting married was the last thing I had expected to happen when I got my 'free personality profile' but it was one of the best things to have happened in my life.  Thanks eHarmony for bring such a wonderful man into my life!!
