So Close Yet So Far

Dear eHarmony,

I am writing today to thank you for your services. Although Jim and I lived less than 3 ½ miles apart in the same city, we would never have met, fell in love and married without you!

A wide variety of circumstances brought each of us to eHarmony. I was in my late 40’s, had raised my son and had been divorced for over 10 years. Although I had relationships I had not found that ‘special someone’ with whom I felt that true connection or were on the same path regarding a future.

I had all but given up on dating and was ready to ‘take another break’ to avoid being disappointed again. I was in the process of cancelling my membership when I was matched with Jim.

From the beginning, he came across as a great guy. Our initial communications were easy and we found that we had a great deal in common. On the day that we met, we had an instant bond and attraction. We found similarities in both our personalities and our goals and spent our first date talking like old friends for hours. To this day, we find our relationship only becoming stronger with each passing day.

Fortunately, Jim and I have become that great couple who truly understand and support one another. We value the same principles, are in same ‘place’ both personally and professionally and have compatible goals for the rest of our lives. We even find ourselves on many occasions finishing each other thoughts and sentences.

They say a test of a relationship is going through the challenges of life. Unfortunately on my first day back at work after our wedding I was informed that I had been downsized due to the economy. As you can imagine I was feeling somewhat stressed telling my new husband that I was no longer employed. However Jim has been absolutely amazing, positive and supportive throughout the whole process.

It seems that those ‘dimensions of compatibility’ that are eHarmony’s cornerstone are truly a remarkable tool to lay a foundation for a great relationship!

I feel extremely fortunate to have found a great, caring, loving, compassionate and attractive man with whom I can spend the rest of my life. We are both blessed to have found the relationship that we have always dreamed of, and it would not have been possible without you!

Thank you!

Jim and Violette
