eharmony Success Stories


Barbara and John

Des Plaines, IL

John and I were both just about to give up on finding a compatible partner. We had been divorced for several years and we were looking for someone special for a serious relationship. Other match sites hadn't done it for us, and we kept finding people who didn't have our same values and just weren't on the same wavelength. We liked eHarmony because of the careful matching process and the step by step guided introductions. We each thought, "Well, just one more try."

The day we were introduced it seems as though we had been waiting for each other. The introduction was accepted immediately by each of us and we started the process right away. It took us a little while to feel confident enough to meet, but once we did there was no turning back. We started dating exclusively within about a month and got engaged after about a year. John proposed to me on the beach in Florida, where we now live for six months each year. We were married last October with our children, grandchildren, my mom, and all of our friends there to wish us well. We are so happy together and we know that we have eHarmony to thank for introducing us. Thank you, eHarmony!
