Lynn and Roger
My subscription to eHarmony had expired for about a week. I found most men my age to be superficial and not wanting a committed relationship. eHarmony sent me an introduction to meet Roger. I wasn't even going to open the email, but curiosity got the best of me. Something about his profile made him sound different from all the others. I didn't reply at first and then later that night tried to reply, but couldn't because my subscription had to be renewed. I finally decided it might be worth $29.95 to at least reply. I never expected it to go any farther, but it did!
Over the next few days, we went back and forth through the eHarmony system and finally went to open communication. Roger was sincere, genuine, and immediately I felt the chemistry. We talked on the phone for the first time for 2 hours, the next night for 2 1/2 hours, and the third night for 3 hours. We met on the fourth night at a restaurant. Roger was just as real in person as he was on the phone. No gimmicks, no hidden agendas. He had been married for 26 years to his late wife and he was ready for a committed relationship again. Sparks flew on our first date and I knew then he was very special. We went out the next two nights and lunch before he had to go out of the country for 2 1/2 weeks. He called me 3 and 4 times a day, I found I missed him. I missed a man I had just met!
Roger and I were meant to be together forever, and eHarmony gave us the tool to find each other. The process is great when everyone is honest and sincere. On occasion I will go back and read Roger's profile along with his must haves and can't stands, and they are exactly the way he is. I recommend eHarmony to all my single friends, but caution them to be completely honest about themselves and the person they are looking for. I especially tell them to hang in there. If I would have given up, I would never have met Roger, and now I can't imagine my life without him. By the way, Roger had just started his subscription within a few days when we met. He had gone on one other date, and then met me. He never expected to find someone so fast, and so compatible! We both are amazingly happy!
