Real-life success story

Eva and Stuart

Location: St Neots, England
Married: 22nd March 2008

On December 19th 2006 I was sent a match for Stuart in St Neots. He started asking the questions first then I replied. We both decided to go straight to emailing each other as it was quicker. We continued to talk and then decided to talk over the internet using our web cams. It was exciting as we both got to see what each looked like and for most of the talking we did a lot of laughing which was good. The more we talked the more we seemed to have in common. We arranged to meet one another in Penrith as he was staying with his parents over the Christmas holidays in Lockerbie and I lived in Kendal at the time, so the journey to meet one another only took 40 minutes each way. After we had met in Penrith and had a good day talking and getting to know one another we continued to talk via instant messenger.

From there we arranged to meet on January 25th 2007 at Preston as he was doing a job there. We met at the Premier Inn that Friday night and had a drink and something to eat and talked more. We had a lovely weekend going on a walk and to the cinema. We went for coffee and spent some time together before he left at night to go home. I remember feeling really sad as my feeling towards him had grown so much and he told me that he felt the same way. Finally in March 2007 I gave up my job to move down with him and I have never looked back since. During that year we talked about marriage and had a fantastic time being together. On December 17, 2007 he asked me to marry him and I said yes. On March 22nd 2008 we got married at Somerton House Hotel Lockerbie Scotland. Wow we are so happy. If only we had met earlier. So thanks again eHarmony. Matches really do come true.
