eharmony Success Stories


Nancy and Forrest

Garden Valley, ID

Forrest and I are both in our mid 50s.  We met online through eHarmony in June 2008. Through the extensive personality profiles, eHarmony had done the first necessary part in taking away some of the "guess work."  I had been through the painful loss of the death of my spouse just 17 months before.  Forrest had been through a painful breakup the very same month/year. 

Although Forrest had indicated a preference for a 15 mile or less radius for his matches, and I live about 50 miles away in a very small community, somehow the eHarmony system matched us.  We each also had only a short time left on our subscriptions.  I had been sent over 350 matches, but not communicated with anyone.  He had gotten to the "go for coffee stage" with a couple of other matches.  We were both very intrigued by each other’s profiles and photos.  We went through the guided communication to open communication, and then met in person mid July.  There was chemistry right away!  We continued to talk by phone, email and see each other often, becoming engaged in November and married in Hawaii in January 2009.  We are thankful for eHarmony and the Universe for matching us. We are truly perfect for each other, and very happy!  We recommend eHarmony every chance we get!
