The first things in Karl’s profile that drew my attention were his name and that he is a highly educated professional. Karl is a private investment advisor. As a divorced-single-mom-physician-scientist, I am elated to have found a man within my age group, with equal level of education and professionalism, able to accept my career and my then 5-year old daughter, Vanessa. Vanessa loves Karl too.  We had no photos posted on your website so looks did not play an influence. Once we started emailing, the best thing was his will to write long emails in which he would open himself up to me to explore. I signed up for eHarmony’s free trial week in October 2003, and it was during this time that we were matched. He had signed up just a couple of weeks earlier. Karl and I emailed each other right away. It was non-stop emailing several times a day for about 2 months, without exchanging any photos or phone conversations.  FIRST DATE: We set up a blind dinner date for 12-3-03, after just a couple of phone conversations. At first I was skeptical about the success of this match because Karl lived over 30 miles away from me, but when we met I knew he was the one for me. Our 1st date lasted about 7 hours- on a weeknight! We were the last to leave the restaurant and ended up drinking coffee at a 24h diner! There was never a quiet moment, and laughter was everywhere. At about 3 am we sealed the date with a kiss and Karl hit the road for his long ride home.  Six months later we got engaged and 9 months after that we got married, on April 30.  We are now expecting our first child (step-sibling for the daughter I already had) in January 2007. We hope that sharing our story of our expanding family further strengthens the view that eHarmony brings couples together in a long-lasting way...for good!   I did eHarmony's personality test out of curiosity to see if it was accurate (I'd done the Meyers-Briggs before several times). Your personality assessment was 100% accurate, just like your ability to match me with Karl. I had tried another online matching service ( and was disappointed. I did not intend to respond to any of the eHarmony matches because I did not want any more disappointments. I then decided to try eHarmony during the one-week trial period. I only responded to Karl because he had a wonderful profile and had sent me a fast-track email, which ended up being a blank message he sent by accident! I think the best financial investment he has done was $50 on eHarmony.  I hope others can live the joy of being other eHarmony success stories. We would love to share our stories with the many hopeful souls to visit eHarmony. We are a strong advocate for your service and recommend it to all our single friends. People also love to hear our eHarmony story.  Thanks for bringing us together, Sandra and Karl
