Jeanne-Marie and Peter
I feel so happy and fortunate to share the story of how I met the love of my life, my fiancé, to eHarmony. We both joined this site on a whim, never thinking that on that warm July evening we met this past summer we would meet the person we would spend the rest of our lives with. In fact, we both had in the backs of our minds the prior disappointing set ups and blind dates that had left us still single and wondering....is 'the one' still out there who is meant for us? And yet, as I pulled out of my car and saw him outside the restaurant waiting for me with a grin on his face, a sense of calm came over me, and I immediately knew something was different. Maybe it was the look in his eyes, or that fact that someone finally showed up on a date before me, but I found myself so excited to walk through that door. And as I look back, I felt even more excited when we walked out.
The next several dates seemed like a page right out of a fairytale...dinner trains and water fire, with some kisses in between. It didn't take long for us to realize that there was something bigger than us happening, something almost serendipitous. There were little things like our sisters went to the same college, to discovering my father's family rented his Cape house 50 years ago, to the day we happened upon 'the ring'...along the drive to the antique shop, we passed by a 'Jeannie's Way' and then a 'Pete's Way.' I can't think of a bigger sign that that.
I will forever remember the night we got engaged...he proposed by my Christmas tree with the same grin and look in his eyes as the night we met. We popped some champagne and toasted to finally finding 'the one!'
We both feel so lucky and grateful to have met our soul mate and partner in life.
