Sarah and Scott
I had tried other dating sites with no luck. I had given up on the thought of meeting someone online. My Mother had seen a commercial for eHarmony and told me to try it. I refused. I knew what kind of people I met on the other site, and wanted NOTHING to do with internet dating. She persisted, and after about several months I agreed.
Scott had been talking to friends about settling down, and had just moved to a new area and didn't know many people. He joined eHarmony one weekend. He had a couple of matches, but told his friends, "I like this girl the most!" That was me!
Scott was the first person that I communicated in depth with. I had other matches, but there was something about him. We started communicating in late April of 2006, and scheduled to meet on May 2, 2006 at a local restaurant. We closed down the restaurant. We were the only ones left as the staff cleaned off tables and placed the chairs on the table tops. I invited him to a party that next weekend, and we have been together ever since. It is truly amazing how eHarmony works. I have met other couples that are happily married, and starting families. I am glad that I listened to my mother...even if it took me a while!
