Shauna and Joseph
When I was 20, my heart was broken. I never thought I’d find love again, let alone someone to spend the rest of my life with. The following several years were spent going on endless dates with people that I never felt a real connection with. In the summer of 2005, I decided to move 750 miles away from Michigan to Georgia for a job offer. I didn’t know a soul in the new state I called home. Soon after, I decided to join eHarmony.com. Mostly, I wanted to meet new people in my area. What I got was so much more than I could have dreamed of.
I was matched with Joey on August 16th, 2005. We spoke over email and phone for 6 weeks. All along I was thinking this man was too good to be true. We had the same sense of humor, interests and values. I actually found a man that loved ice hockey, (my favorite sport) in Georgia! On Saturday October 8th, 2005 we decided to meet face to face. We met at a local Mexican restaurant for dinner. From the moment I saw him, I knew my feelings were different than anything I felt in years. Our first date together was spent talking and laughing for hours. We followed up our first date with a second, the following Tuesday, and have been inseparable ever since.
We were engaged on November 25th 2008. This man has truly changed my life. He is my best friend. I know that I would still be looking for the “one” to love if it wasn’t for eHarmony. I look forward to, and am excited for, the rest of our life together!
