Devon and Trevor
How did we meet? The old-fashioned (21st century) way, of course!
If you had asked me a little over a year ago that I would be meeting the man of my dreams and my future husband on eHarmony (a dating website that uses personality and compatibility tools for matches), I would have certainly scoffed at the idea and maybe even rolled my eyes for effect. Let’s just say that I was taking a little "break" from dating and relationships back then as my life had taken many unexpected turns and I was just catching up with all of the change.
Yet, the Universe had its own plan for me and perhaps it was my letting go of expectations OR just plain luck. All I knew at the time in November 2007 was that I didn’t want to have anything to do with dating AT ALL, especially "online dating"...PERIOD. And then enters Mom.
I’m not sure how it started or where it came from...whether I casually mentioned the idea to my Mother that someday I would like to start dating again and perhaps I would try eHarmony. Being the resourceful person that she is and perhaps with a little bit of impatience for more grandchildren, my Mom prompted me to start now...as in "TODAY". After a quick set of negotiations, my Mom even suggested she would pay for a month’s subscription to see what happens. "You have nothing to lose and everything to gain." she said. Reluctantly, I gave in, but I am so glad that I listened to her...It was the beginning of a magical Love story.
Trevor and I have been together for almost two years now, but it feels like we have known each for a lifetime or more. He is like no other man that I have ever known and my life is forever changed. We enjoy each other’s company so much and we are both convinced that if we hadn’t met through eHarmony, we probably would have never met at all.
I am so happy to be married to him and to spend the rest of our lives together...it just keeps getting better and better!
