Real-life success story

Graham and Marsha

Location: Northampton, England
Married: 24th September 2005

Had it not been for eHarmony I think that even if friends had tried to match us up we would have declined meeting. I am very much visually stimulated and have always been very fitness orientated. My job led me to working with doctors for many years and I grew to find them very arrogant and concluded that a doctor was not the sort of man I would get involved with.

Graham would have never been interested in me as he was bombarded by pharmaceutical reps and thought them shallow and deceptive! (Strong opinion I know). He has been very anti the gym and physical appearance and the fact that I was a part-time fitness instructor left him feeling lightly worried. When we were matched, these were the things that we did not find appealing about each other, but due to the fact that we were "matched on paper" and able to initiate closed and controlled communication we gave it a go. The moment I met Graham I knew that I would spend the rest of my life with him! It was simply a match made in heaven! Our first date was a lovely French dinner in London. I had never been involved in a serious relationship and my family and friends thought the man I was looking for simply did not exist ... well, he did and I finally found him!

I think falling in love with a person for who they actually are and what they represent is critical. Physical affection came later for me but now I find Graham to be the most gorgeous and attractive man on the planet! Finding someone with the same values, beliefs, heritage and family background were very important for both of us. Thank you, eHarmony, for bringing us together!
