Linda and Mark
Mark had been on his own for 8 years here in the Richmond area. I'd been on my own for 12 years, but I lived about two hours away in Washington, DC. Mark had been on various dating sites for most of the years since his divorce. He had come to the conclusion that there was no one in the Richmond area for him. Meanwhile, I decided to move back to my hometown of Richmond two years ago. When I got settled, I joined eHarmony, because I had read the books by your founder about lasting love.
Mark says he knew the minute he got my profile that he'd finally found the one. I was caught up in the Christmas holiday preparations and kept him waiting for over a month before we even talked on the phone. We met in person one week after our first phone call. Seven months later, we flew to Hawaii and got married on the beach. We had both wondered if we could ever get married again after living alone for so long, but because we are so compatible in all the important areas, it's been easier than we ever imagined. It's hard to meet someone when you're in your 50s. My friends and family were always saying why aren't you dating anyone? But, of course, they never knew anyone who was available. Mark and I were living about 10 miles from one another, but we would never have met without eHarmony. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
