Susan and Perry
Perry was one of my first matches. I had 3 other matches from various parts of the United States. Perry's profile really intrigued me as we both seemed to have so much in common. One of the wildest things was that he was from the same small city in Minnesota that I would be moving to in a couple weeks! A small city called New Hope! I was most attracted to how much we had in common and how we could practically finish each other's sentences on IM almost immediately! We thought so much alike. In person, it was his gentle nature and sweet brown eyes.
Our first date was actually me meeting him in his garage while Perry and his son were fixing an ATV. We had an instant connection. We met I believe in Sept. of 2002 and were married nearly 4 years ago on April 19, 2003, at an ATV park where we had spent so many wonderful times together. We wore riding gear and Perry's son was a ring bearer on a mini ATV. We had a more formal reception later in the evening.
I felt that eHarmony was superior to other sites because of all the work it took to even finally chat with someone. It was nice to get to know someone before making a judgment about how they looked. eHarmony did a fabulous job matching our interests in the way we thought about important issues, spirituality, relationships and hobbies. We feel so blessed to have each other and so thankful to eHarmony for making the connection! We have a blended family of 5 kids between the two of us and we are growing in our love together more and more as time goes by.
Thanks, eHarmony for giving us both a second chance at love!
