Long Distance

Jodie and Jay

Sherwood, AK, Pontotoc, MS

My sister Cindy, met the love of her life on eHarmony in March of 2009 and they were married in July 2009.  Being a single mother I never had time to date and she encouraged me to try eHarmony.  In August I signed up for 1 month and decided that was all I was willing to give.  I was going to cancel the week of Aug. 24th when I was matched with Jay.  He contacted me that week and we began speaking through guided communication.  We answered some hard and life defining questions during this time that lead us both to be drawn to each other even more.  After all the guided communication we decided to talk outside of eHarmony.  He lived in MS and me in AR so we spoke on the phone 1st and we both knew within our 1st conversation that we were meant to be together.  We met in Sept. 2009 and hit it off right off the bat.  He spent a lot of time in AR meeting my family and I made trips to MS to get to know him and his family better.  We both spent many hours on the road to making our relationship work and we did.  The distance between us was only miles, because we had already made a heart connection that was amazing.  We became engaged in Nov. and were married into a covenant marriage on Dec. 19th, 2009.  We are happily married and look forward to spending our lives together, he loves my son and me with all his heart it has been a wonderful experience.  He had been on eHarmony for several months and had had no good matches that he hit it off with; he was going to cancel his membership the week I was matched to him.  We both laugh now at how it worked out for both of us.  When we met it was love at first sight.  The funniest part was I didn't want to do the whole Internet dating thing, and because my sister met her husband on here, I promised I would try it for at least 1 month.  I have NO REGRETS.  It has been amazing.  So both me and my sister met and married our husbands in 2009 through the matching of eHarmony.  All four of us sit around and laugh at how it worked for us.  We encourage all our friends to give it a try.  My sister was in Boston, MA and I was in Little Rock, AR and it worked for both of us, so no matter location or age we recommend eHarmony to anyone.  I love Jay with ALL my Heart!  I would have it no other way.  Thanks.  Jodie
