Our story

Frank and I were both in a new place in our lives.  I was attending culinary school in my thirties and he was beginning a new chapter of his life.  We both came to a place where we were ready to meet someone special.  eHarmony appealed to our lifestyles and our desire to be not only in love but also wonderfully compatible.  We were matched on July 4 and communication began just a few days later.  There was an immediate connection but we were also cautious in our responses.  Slowly we began opening up through emails and when we spoke on the phone the first time there was a deeper level of connection.   Our first date came a few weeks later and lasted six hours until we closed the place down.  From that moment on we were thrilled to get to know one another further.

We traveled by car, bus, and train a couple of times a week and by the new year we both felt certain we wanted to spend our lives together.  Frank proposed in February and I joyfully accepted.  Our relationship began long distance, grew that way, and would continue as I was set to finish culinary school in Italy for four months.  Our love and commitment to one another was only strengthened during this time and I know our marriage will benefit.  We were happily married on Sept 28, 2008 in the rural countryside of Maine.  We could not be more thankful to the compatibility feature exclusive to eHarmony.  Our friends can't believe how perfect we are for each.  We can!  Thank you for helping me find my one true love!
