Cynthia and Don
On April 25, 2007, I received a match that was to change the course of my life. After being single for nine years and surviving a very difficult divorce, eHarmony sent me a man that has forever changed my outlook, feelings, and my life. Don contacted me first, two days after we were matched. He literally had hundreds of matches during his short forays on eHarmony, but somehow my profile struck a cord for him, and we worked our way through the system to Open Communication.
I knew this man was special from our first date. He never would have been a man I would have instantly connected with—I am a taller-than-average woman, and Don is slightly shorter than me. But who he is as a person has meant the world to me. On Christmas morning I found a ring in my Christmas stocking. Don has renewed my faith in relationships, and in men. I have never been with anyone who is as compatible, loving, and as special as he is.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the biggest surprise of my life---I truly did save the BEST for the last. I only hoped I would find someone as special as Don, and thanks to eHarmony, I did.
