Gretchen and Bob
My name is Gretchen and I married Bob, who I met on eHarmony. Seeing your website as I did today, I understand that our story may not be a unique one, but it's certainly special to us. He was ready to give up on finding the one, and I was just looking to meet new people, since I had just moved across the country. We met for dinner after work one day, and the rest is history.
One of my favorite parts of our story is that Bob's brother, unbeknownst to ANYONE, was using eHarmony at the same time as Bob tried it. These 30-something men were not willing to admit, even to each other, that they were using a dating site... until they BOTH met their future wives. Bob's brother and sister-in-law were married 11 months before we were, and when the truth came out about how we met, the boys laughed. Nothing to be ashamed of when it actually works to find the love of your life, I guess.
The other funny moment was when we first went to our priest, asking him to help us start on our path toward our marriage. We were nervous, thinking that a religious man would see internet dating as an unseemly way to meet, but when we told him, he actually said "OK, sit down and tell me how this works. You're the 4th or 5th couple I've worked with this year who has met on that particular site. Tell me how they do it!" A glowing review, if I've ever heard one.
THANKS for introducing us. We're forever grateful
