Phil and Miriam "We met at Birmingham train station and her eyes blew me away! She has amazingly long eyelashes and I fell for her instantly. We went to the German Christmas market in Birmingham. It’s a really fun and romantic place and we had the best date I’ve ever been on."
Engaged: 21st July 2012
Zoe and Jamie "We walked back to the cars and after I’d given Jamie a quick, rather ‘British’ kiss in a ‘thanks for a lovely evening’ kind of way, he very sensibly wound me back in again and gave me the kind of kiss that makes you certain to see stars, tweeting birds and pink fluffy clouds."

Chris and Karen “Well, after being on eHarmony for a month or so I met Karen. I had been communicating with one or two others, but didn't feel any chemistry. Karen and I exchanged email addresses in May, and communicated as friends for another few months. There’s quite a story associated with our first date."

Married: 12th March 2011
Katy and Stu "After becoming a single Mum I had sort of lost all faith in men and found myself on eHarmony for a 'bit of a laugh' really. I had been on the site for about two weeks and saw Stuart’s details on my match list. I quickly took interest and sent first communication, and didn't expect to hear back but when I did things moved quite quickly, we started to email and talk on the phone and met up a few weeks later."

Engaged: 11th June 2010
Graham and Marsha "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."
From: Northampton, East Midlands
Married: 25th September 2005
Emily and Rob "I tried another dating website a couple of years ago and went on about nine dates with different people - none of which went any further than two meetings. eHarmony's system ensured that, by the time I actually met Rob it was less likely there would be huge differences between us and that we were both prepared to put more effort into making a relationship work."
Married: 3rd July 2010
Carla and Sheldon "Sheldon and I met on eHarmony in November 2009 and instantly hit it off, we talked via the guided communication and were both very quick to respond to each other, we moved onto open communication and talked via email, instant messenger and webcam everyday from thereon. Sheldon is Canadian and I am British."
