Real-life success story

Dave and Judi

Location: Worcestershire, England
Engaged: 14th February 2010


Our first date was in August last year. Since then, despite there being a 400 mile round trip between us, we have seen each other at least once a week every week for the last eight months, and had our first family holiday together as a family back in October last year. On Valentine’s Day, I proposed to Judi and was absolutely delighted when she accepted. There was no doubt in my mind from the very first time that we met that it would lead to this, but everything to-date has been perfect.

My house is on the market and we have found ourselves a new house in the Worcester area and we plan to move in July this year. It’s a bit of a mad upheaval with me and my two girls moving so far from ‘home’ but we are all looking forward to it so much. The move will be a bit of a rush as we are also all off on holiday to Italy in the first week of August - myself, Judi and our 5 kids! And there is the small matter of arranging and fitting in a wedding before the end of this year hopefully.

Before signing up for eHarmony, I must confess to doubting that any sort of online dating scheme would ever work. Any doubts I had were very quickly dispelled however and eHarmony has totally changed my life. The last seven months have been one fantastic journey of discovery and the best is still to come. I can't thank everyone at eHarmony enough for everything you have done.
