Pamela and Jim
I was matched with over 30 different men in the first two months that I used eHarmony, but it turns out that I am marrying the one who you matched me with on Day One! Jim's profile always stood out from the rest. His sincerity, sense of humor and easygoing nature were apparent even on his About Me page. I liked the fact that he answered every question honestly, and thoughtfully. He was also the only person to post his personality survey for anyone to see. I thought this was a brave move, and when I read it, I knew I needed to contact him. His survey looked so much like mine that I could have been reading about myself!
Our first date was at a bookstore. I asked him if he thought he could find me in the store with just my eHarmony photo as a guide. He was up to the challenge, so I got there early, and stationed myself way in the back corner. Right at the time we were supposed to meet, he ambled up and introduced himself! We had a great time and were able to continue the easy and open conversation style that we had established through email and phone calls. That is, by the way, the part of this process that I valued the most.
Because the eHarmony system encourages you to be open and honest about who you are and what you need in a relationship, I think it sets couples up for success. You are able to share on a very deep level from the very beginning. This open, honest and forthright style of communication is a trait that all of us who meet on eHarmony carry into our relationships and (for the lucky ones) into our marriages. It is a wonderful foundation to start with, and I look forward to many happy years with the man that you brought into my life, and the life of my two children (who love him as much as I do!) I never did try any other dating site. I researched them all, and realized that any man who was willing to go through the process you require to sign up for the service was going to be a higher-than- average quality prospect. I also appreciated the supportive atmosphere, and the commitment to long-term relationships.
As a single mom, I knew I didn't want the meat-market atmosphere you see on some Internet dating sites. My children were so impressed with how this worked that I think you may have second-generation customers in the making! Thank you so much for all that you do. I will send a photo of our wedding day, but in the meantime I wanted to share our happy news.Pamela from Pennsylvania
