Michelle and Ricky
My best friend Julie met a man named Ben on eHarmony who would later become her fiancé. We were roommates at the beginning of their relationship and she kept encouraging me to sign up and I finally reluctantly listened. After less than 3 weeks on eHarmony, I was matched with the man who will soon become my husband.
Ricky initiated contact with me and after reading his profile, I thought 'this guy might be okay', so I responded to his communication. We communicated over email almost everyday for the next month and a half. I was truly amazed by how much we had in common and how this man I had never actually met could make me laugh out loud so often.
We had a great first date. We laughed and also connected in some deeper conversation. When I arrived home, my friend Julie told me 'this man has lit up your world like no one else ever has before.' I could not stop smiling. Ricky is truly the love of my life. He is strong and kind and faithful and loving and he does have an incredible sense of humor (as he said he did on his eHarmony profile!) Now I sit truly thankful for all that time my friend Julie took to encourage me to sign up! And for a special bonus, I will be her matron of honor just 6 weeks after she stands up next to me as my maid of honor. We are definitely thankful for our eHarmony success stories!
