So Close Yet So Far

Joe and Robyn

Ellicott City, MD

Ultimately, it came down to us being so interlocked, right down to eventually finding out that we lived on the same street 10 years ago, and now 10 years in the future, lived only 5 minutes apart.  And at that time, she lived only 4 minutes from the house I grew up in as a child.

For the first time in our lives, we both agreed to meet a person over the internet on a date that would change our lives. On Dec 18th, I picked her up for a small dinner.  We spent a great evening talking and realizing that, in person, we clicked even better than online or on the phone!

We saw each other the next day, got to know each other even more, and realized just how good this was working out. We both went back to work Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. That Thursday we arranged to see each other on our 2nd date, and we have never spent a day apart from that day on.

I proposed to Robyn on February 12th with 6 dozen roses, a beautiful ring, and a big happy YES! We planned a gloriously hectic wedding together and spent an absolutely wonderful week in the Bahamas together on our Honeymoon.

We spent our first Thanksgiving together this past November, a time last year that we both were feeling very lost and without hope of ever meeting our soul mate. In 2 weeks, we are moving into our new home.

We still joke almost on a monthly basis about eHarmony and how anyone else would say this was impossible!  It definitely is not!  Good luck to everyone else on the site looking for their special someone! We did it! So can you!
