Nearly Gave Up

Laura and Kent

Plymouth, MN

I was in my late 40's, and had nearly given up on ever finding my true love.  I had been single for over 20 years, and while raising my daughter was very fulfilling, I always had a hole in my life.  I didn't have that someone special to share life's every day moments with me.

After witnessing the happiness of my sister's in-laws that met on eHarmony, I thought that I would give it a shot.  Actually, I gave it two shots.  I joined the first time, and in a few months, had met many men, kissed a few toads, and then decided that I wasn't meant to find love.  A few months later, after the success of a friend with eHarmony, I decided to give it one more try. 

This time, I was matched up with Kent Jennings.  We met March 23, 2007.  Right from the start, we clicked.  I was matched up with the perfect person for me - intelligent, funny, warm, well traveled, generous - a true "Southern Gentleman."

We have had a WONDERFUL 18 months together, and are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives with each other.  In May, 2008, while visiting Kansas City, he got down on his knee in a restaurant and proposed to me.  It was very important to him that I was married before my 50th birthday, so we are getting married 4 days before I do. 

Kent has brought so much more than romance into my life.  For the first time, I am with someone who enjoys my family, shares my interests in travel and recreational activities, makes me think, and most importantly, makes me laugh and smile.  Before I met Kent, no man (other than my Dad) had ever told me that I was beautiful.  Kent tells me everyday that I am beautiful, pretty, gorgeous, etc.  It took me a few months to accept these compliments (and believe them), but now it makes my heart soar every time he tells me.

In a number of ways, Kent and I are very different.  He is a perfectionist - I am a spur of the moment type of person. He is neat and orderly, I am sometimes not-so-much.  He is an only child; my family is the world to me.  These differences in us are really good things!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to find my perfect match.  I never could have done it without you.  For the first time in over 20 years, I feel like a whole person.  I have everything in life that I could need or want - I have Kent.
