Shannon and Brent

Gallatin, TN

Dear eHarmony,  Shannon and I met through on October 21, 2003. Shannon had been told by her parents to go onto eHarmony for a couple of years before she decided to do it. I had been through a divorce and didn’t know where I would meet someone special. I kept seeing television ads for eHarmony and shrugged it off because of my perception of internet dating. Finally, I thought I would give it a try just to see my personality profile.  We both were on eHarmony for less than a month before being introduced to each other. We followed the normal question and answer procedures and open communications until we were ready to give each other our personal contact information. The more we talked, the more we found that we had in common. Even the little things matched perfectly. After a couple of weeks of communicating through eHarmony, Shannon gave me her phone number and, that night, we talked on the phone for the first time. We wound up talking on the phone for about 5 hours. We continued to do this for a week before we met for a first in-person date on November 8, 2003. We would email, talk on the phone, or see each other in person everyday for the next month and a half before I proposed to Shannon on December 21, 2003. Shannon and I were married on April 17, 2004 in a small church wedding attended by friends and family. We began our life together and just 4 months later we found out that we were expecting our first child.  On May 3, 2005, we welcomed Emma Renee to our family. She is just another chapter of our amazing story that we are able to tell people thanks to eHarmony. We are now expecting our second baby....a baby boy, the next two weeks!  Our sweet little Emma is now 19 months, and Brent and I couldn't be happier!  The only thing that has changed is that we love each other even more now than we did then!  We couldn’t imagine our lives without each other. We are so thankful for eHarmony and the service that it is providing to help people find their perfect match.  Thank you eHarmony!  Shannon, Emma, and Brent
