Steve and Malia
I met Malia on eHarmony in the fall of 2005. I am the head of programming for a cable television network; Malia is a lobbyist for the National Wildlife Foundation. I had dated quite a few women on eHarmony before meeting her (as well as dating other women I met on various dating sites over the previous few years). Malia had just exited a long term relationship and was trying on-line dating for the first time (I was her third on-line date).
Over the course of two years I realized this was a woman I couldn't let get away from me. At Thanksgiving time of 2007 after two years of dating I asked her to marry me on the beach in Florida. "Of course" she said. In June of 2008 we got married. I was 49, Malia 39. It is the first marriage for both of us. We wanted to try to have a baby and we were blessed that two months later Malia became pregnant. On April 20, 2009- our son, Jacen Jacob (aka J.J. "The Rocket")was born. Without eHarmony we never would have met - thank you!
