Josh and Melanie
We were matched on March 15, 2007. Josh had been an eHarmony member for a few years and had been matched with hundreds of different women. Melanie, on the other hand, had just recently signed up for eHarmony and had only been out on one other date.
Josh was traveling from Seattle to Portland for a work function and thought it would be fun to meet Melanie for a coffee date on Saturday morning. The coffee date went so well that Josh invited Melanie to spend the day with him and a few of his coworkers.
The next weekend Josh drove down from Seattle to visit Melanie in Sandy, Oregon. We spent the next year or so driving back and forth each weekend! It was hard not to be able to see each other during the week, but we spent virtually every weekend together.
We were engaged in August of 2007 and married in July of 2008. We spent our honeymoon on a little island of the coast of Belize.
We're both so thankful for eHarmony, because without it, we would have never met. I think we both were doubting if we would ever meet the perfect person that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with. There were lots of disappointments along our dating journey, but when we finally met each other we both knew it was right.
The last year or so of our lives have been so great and we're forever grateful for eHarmony. We're looking forward to our lives together and being able to spend it with someone we love.
