Dana and Daniel
I have lived in the Tri-Cities area all of my life and was having trouble meeting people. Dan moved to the small Tri-cities area from Chicago, and wanted to meet people in this new area. Dan had been dating people on eHarmony for a few months before I joined. When I joined, he was my first match. We went out on a date after we went through all of the eHarmony steps of communication, and Dan said he knew that I was different than the other girls he had dated. I knew there was a spark, but he was my first match, so I wanted to know what else was out there. I continued dating Dan, but also continued communicating with other matches. After a couple of dates with other matches, I realized that my first match, Dan, was truly special. We dated for almost a year, falling in love all the while. In February, the following year after meeting on eHarmony in March, Dan took me to Chicago for a family visit. We went down town to do some shopping, and in front of the famous Water Tower, he got down on one knee and proposed. I said yes, of course, and began the year and a half of wedding planning.
Our wedding day was perfect. Since then we have bought a new house, and on October 2nd, 2007, we welcomed our son, Joseph Michael into the world. We both have always wanted children, and eHarmony helped to match our similar wants and goals. We are extremely happy and feel so very blessed. Joseph Michael just celebrated his 1st Birthday party last Saturday.
We are anticipating another happy eHarmony related event this coming March 28th as my brother, Michael, is going to marry Alison, who also met on eharmony. After Dan and I met, my brother always commented that he wished he could meet a female version of Dan, so I suggested that he also join eHarmony; after all, it worked for me! So he did, and he met Alison. Dan and I are going to be a bridesmaid and groomsman in their wedding in March. We saw them at a family dinner recently and they were wearing their new eHarmony Bride and Groom t-shirts. It made me think that I should write in and share Dan's and my love story. We are so happy that eHarmony brought us together! We were only living about 20 miles apart, but we would have never met if it had not been for eHarmony! Thanks you SO MUCH!
