So Close Yet So Far

Amy and Brian

Cincinnati, Ohio

I got onto eHarmony in July 2010 and was sent Brian as a match I think on August 15, 2010.  We emailed semi-regularly for a month and a half before finally meeting on October 7, 2010.  We knew instantly it was a match!  We were both so comfortable and laughed so much it was hardly an awkward first date. 

He took me to meet his parents 6 days later because we already knew each other so well and neither of us had a doubt that this was "it."  As we debuted as a new couple to our families and friends, everyone asked how we met and we were happy to tell them eHarmony.  Everyone was so interested and intrigued with the process even our married friends joked that they wanted to try it because it sounded so fun!  Brian and I have enjoyed every step of the getting to know each other process and now, just shy of 9 months together, we're engaged and planning a Summer 2012 wedding.  Our families love each other so much, it just simply couldn't be more right.  

We both credit eHarmony for giving us the love of our lives.  There's no other way we would've crossed paths.  It's funny because we've discovered places we've been in our pasts that overlap and we even worked close to each other, but never had a reason to encounter one another until eHarmony. 

eHarmony was the setting we needed that was most comfortable to us instead of waiting to find someone in a bar that happened to be single, and happened to share all of the same values with all of the same future plans and dreams.  You've given us the world, eHarmony, and we couldn't be more grateful!!!!  We can't wait to get married next year and start our family and we owe that to you.  Thank you!
