Abbe and Bill
I went onto eHarmony after a divorce and then following a 2 year relationship that also ended. I emailed Bill for mostly shallow reasons - he looked cute, athletic and fun. I own a small business, was going to school, and raising 2 daughters so I didn't really have time to date. He responded to me for non-shallow reasons - I was a good match in regard to our compatibility profiles (he also thought I was pretty).
It took me a month to agree to go out with him and I almost let it go due to living in different states (me in NJ and he in PA). However, I kept dating men who were simply not compatible with my personality and lifestyle...so I thought I would try an eHarmony date... and finally met Bill.
We both love to kayak and hike. We both are in good shape and care about being a good parent to our respective children. We both work hard at our careers and on ourselves. We are both loyal and affectionate.
On the other hand, Bill is a simple meat and potatoes guy who prefers beer and pizza. I am NOT a simple gal and I prefer sushi and wine. I love musicals and theatre. Bill loves riding his motorcycle. He is more logical and practical, and I am more abstract and romantic. But it works and works well.
Over the last year, we fell in love, and are now planning a life together. We have gotten to know each other’s kids and have all bonded.
I have never been with someone like Bill before. I never thought his personality would blend well with mine. However, eHarmony knew what was best for me more than I knew what was best for me. So thank you eHarmony.
