Traci and Andrew
I originally clicked on the eHarmony site with a very cynical attitude. I questioned how you could find the "perfect match" by answering a bunch of questions. I completed your questionnaire and clicked finish thinking it would than ask me for payment in order to proceed. To my surprise it started searching!!
I was very cautious at first never having done this before. I started communication with a handful who requested communication. Didn't really find someone that I clicked with, but I kept a positive attitude. One day I logged on and I had a request for communication from Andrew. I read his profile and was really impressed with it. We started communicating and I knew even before we completed our questions that this was someone I was very interested in. We had so much in common! We decided to communicate on our own away from eHarmony. The more time we spent communicating the more we discovered how compatible we really were. We went from eHarmony, to emails, to chatting, and eventually to speaking on the phone.
After loads of emails, text messages, and hundreds of hours talking on the phone (luckily Andrew has a special long distant rate!) I had planned a trip to Las Vegas with friends from work and Andrew met us there. He then traveled to my home in Hawaii to meet my children and friends. We got engaged while he was here. I spent Christmas and New Year's in England and met his family and got to do some traveling in Europe. It was the first time I have ever traveled out of the United States... first stamp in my passport!!!!
Getting to this point has been the most wonderful journey! Thank you eHarmony for making two people 8,000 miles apart the happiest people in the world!! It is unbelievable how compatible we are. Both of us have had relationships that didn't work, but neither of us gave up hope that there was someone out there for each of us. Who knew we would have to look so far away to find that one special person.
If it hadn't been for eHarmony Andrew and I would have never met. Now, I can't even imagine my life without him in it!!
