Almitra and Robert
Rob was the first and only guy I went out with from eHarmony. When we met, we just seemed to click. Even before we met in person I could feel a connection through the messages we would leave each other in the eHarmony system. Rob was funny, smart, a man of faith, and I could tell he was a gentle yet strong person. These traits were important to me.
We met on eHarmony in August of 2006. I had only been in the city for a few months, and I was having trouble meeting good quality guys to date through the usual channels –the library, at the club, etc. I had always heard that if you made yourself available; smiled when you were approached, and kept an open mind, you could meet a nice man. But that did not work for me. I remember going on two terrible dates in just a few weeks and that’s when I realized I had to try something different.
So, I signed up for one month of eHarmony. I wasn’t expecting anything really; I just didn’t want to lose faith that I could meet a decent guy. Plus, I thought it might be fun! I never actually thought I would fall in love, especially not on the first try. I definitely didn’t expect to find the man I wanted to marry, but I did.
