Talitha and Derek
Derek and I have now been married for 2 1/2 years. We met through eHarmony when he was living in Milwaukee, WI and I was living in Rockford, IL. We (ok, mainly me!!) took our time before meeting, but ever since we met, we have been together! All the things the commercials say are true and then some! :) Shortly after we got married, Derek was offered a job in SC, which is where we reside now. I could not have asked for more in a partner, husband, or best friend. We both were frustrated with the dating scene and not meeting people with the same goals and values that we had. With each other, we don't have to work to have a relationship, we just enjoy each other and having that one person who we can trust and turn to with anything. I can't believe how lucky I am to have him every day in my life. I can not even express to you how thankful I am that I joined eHarmony and had the chance to meet and spend my life with a wonderful man like Derek. The night I joined, I was watching Trading Spaces on a Saturday night and that seemed much better than spending another night going on a date that would just be a disappointment. After seeing three eHarmony commercials, I really thought someone was trying to send me a message! I did the personality profile and WOW did they have me to a T! I kept thinking how safe it was to do it, and how I wouldn't have to tell anyone! I sure ate those words a few months later when I told anyone who would listen how wonderful Derek was and how we were going to get married. People still come up to me and ask me about it. I always smile and tell them. Ending with how else would I have found a rocket scientist who treats me like a princess?? Thank you again for all the wonderful work you do. I know that eHarmony has truly blessed me with the perfect life partner. I couldn't have even guessed that my life could be this wonderful! This picture was taken last September, we celebrated our second anniversary with a trip to Costa Rica. One of his "can't live without" items was a valid passport!
