Esmeralda and Tomas
Tomas and I first met online early October of 2010. Tomas had been on eHarmony on and off for about a year and a half and I joined in October of 2010. I joined because a friend of mine was joining and she didn't want to do it alone, so I said, "why not?" I had never tried online dating before. What I really enjoyed about eharmony is that it is psychologically based and the questions assess for compatibility in personality, morals and values. It is genius!
Tomas was one of my first matches and the only one I chose to contact myself!! I was attracted to his profile because in the "other" section, he wrote: "I am a goofball." In my "other" section I wrote, "I am goofy." I knew it was a perfect match! haha! After 2 weeks of being on eharmony, I met him! The man I am going to marry! We communicated for 2 weeks and then he asked me out on a date.
Our first date was on October 30, 2010, we met up in my city, took a walk around and went to have pizza and beer at BJ's. Since then, we make sure to enjoy pizza and beer on the anniversary of when we first met! To think that Tomas almost didn't make it to our date. He lost his phone at the gym and he was not able to contact me. I thought he was blowing me off and I was thinking he was not going to call. Well, thanks to eHarmony, he was able to e-mail me to let me know what happened and he asked me for my number so that he could call me. We were able to finalize plans for our first date and we had a great time!
We instantly connected, talking, laughing, smiling, getting to know each other. We knew we had found something special.
