JoAnn and Paul

Linden, NJ

Paul and I met around October of 2004 on eHarmony and have been together ever since!  I was widowed and had been dating and Paul divorced, also dating. We have three children between us.

It just feels like we were destined to meet and that we really do belong together.  We are very much alike in many ways! (Forgetful, clumsy, air headed at times, good parents and caring souls) Of course we have many differences as well but it seems that they help us become closer and that each of our strengths compliment and aid in the others weaknesses and visa verse.

We have hiked and biked and walked and traveled together...we even made it to Italy (a dream of mine) and also to London...(an unforgettable gift from Paul). We have become avid FOODIES and have the extra pounds to prove it!(we are still cute though) We love exploring different cultures and their cuisine.

We love family time together, especially dinners. Our kids miss it when we all sometimes get too busy and don't have that chance for a few days to sit together and just enjoy a meal and talk about each others day to day stuff. Paul has become a wonderful role model and father figure for my son but mostly he is a really good friend to him and I know Bart loves him a lot.

I enjoy having Paul’s son, Jared here on weekends. He is sooo happy to be with his Dad and it has been really nice to see him grow and mature into a sweet young man. The care and kindness and love Paul shows to his children, me, my son and my parents and extended family is hard to put into words...

Its hard to describe when it just feels right in the pit of your soul...but when it does there is no better feeling in the world! I'm not sure why eHarmony is such a different dating site, but it is.  I tried a few of the others and although I did meet some nice people, none were really compatible.

On eHarmony it was different...I was able to find the person I feel I have been looking for all my life!

Thank You, eHarmony
