Mary and Thomas

Oconomowoc, WI

I want to share the story of meeting and marrying the most wonderful man on the planet. I had been on eHarmony for about 6 months. I had communicated with a lot of people and gone on a few dates but didn't click with anyone. Tom was on for six months and encountered a lot of game playing and superficial matches. He was encouraged to try eHarmony by someone who dumped him on (talk about irony) and his very first match sent was me. He had been burned on match and was apprehensive so he kept my profile but didn't communicate with me. When I received Tom's profile, he was probably the 60th match I had been sent.


I had a feeling about him. We shared so many common interests, were both single parents of a boy and a girl, and had very similar upbringings. (We found out later that we lived 6 blocks from each other until he was 8 years old!) He said he kept looking at my picture and thinking that he felt I looked like a down to earth person and someone he could see himself with. I sent a message to him right away, and we started communicating daily.

We had our first date on January 26, 2007 and both felt a connection and attraction right away. We got married in a small family only ceremony in a beautiful outdoor setting on September 21, 2008. He is the best friend I have ever had, as well as the most loving caring person I have ever met. I still feel like we are dating. We have blended our families and recently got a puppy that is "everyone's". We look forward to celebrating our first anniversary together. Tom always sends me a dozen roses on January 26th, the anniversary of our first date. Thank you eHarmony, for introducing me to my amazing husband and showing us that you can still feel like a kid when you are pushing 50.
