Dustin and Amy
This is Dustin writing. What first attracted me to Amy was that she desired to be a wife and mother, but was not going to wait around, spinning her wheels, until that happened. She had goals and plans for her life and was going to live it. After getting to know her better I was also attracted to her strength as a woman and the leadership qualities I saw in her. We emailed for a month or so, and I finally asked her for her phone number. She gave it to me, and our first conversation lasted four and a half hours. I called her a few days later and we talked for ten hours straight! It was so easy to talk to her. It seemed as if we were at one time close friends who lost contact and now we were catching up. The ten hour conversation was on a Sunday, and we met for the first time the following Friday. Our first "date" was on that Saturday. I took her to an upscale Mexican restaurant (I knew Mexican was her favorite). We became official that night. Amy tried other online services and wasn't as pleased with them. She describes them as sort of a "meat-market" where initiation is entirely based on physical attractiveness. eHarmony was great in that we were able to get to know each other's personality, likes, and dislikes, and had the freedom to introduce the physical aspects when we felt appropriate. We continually meet other couples who have used eHarmony and been successful. You have a great thing going!
