Nita and Amish “One rainy afternoon after being a member of eHarmony for a couple of months, I decided I needed to revamp my profile as it didn't contain nearly enough information or photos. So I went about spending a couple of hours doing this. I was instantly rewarded for my efforts, when Amish pinged me his first three questions."
Engaged: 23rd April 2012
Darren and Louise "I think it’s fair to say that we were both skeptical of finding real love via a website, especially given the inevitable past relationships that we’ve had, which reside in most people’s lives when you get to your 40s."
From: Barrow-Upon-Soar, Leicestershire
Matched: 24th August 2011
Samantha and Chris “I’d actually only been on eHarmony for a very short time before I met Chris and I was quite sceptical of the whole idea. My mother had actually insisted that I try the online dating thing!"

Engaged: 5th February 2012
Donna and Chris "Two years on from meeting our relationship has grown from strength to strength. We’ve gone through good and bad times together, bought a house and I also started a new job when I relocated. Chris proposed to me on my birthday this year."
Engaged: 9th March 2012
Nicola and Paul "I remember sitting at my PC crying with laughter at his sense of humour and feeling moved by his caring and compassionate nature. We had similar views on most things that are important in a successful relationship and decided to exchange emails then after two weeks I contacted Paul by telephone and we spoke for over an hour."

Angela and Anthony "I’d been on two other dates before I saw Anthony’s profile and I thought he wouldn’t be interested in me at first. I was surprised when I saw that Anthony was a twin like me so I really wanted to talk to him. The next thing I knew, he’d sent me a message."

Luke and Emma "After a while my friends and family, especially my Mum, kept on telling me I should try eHarmony. I told myself I wouldn’t and didn’t fancy looking online at all, but in the end I decided to have a look at the site although I really didn’t think it would work."
From: Uppingham, Nottinghamshire
Engaged: 16th October 2011
Carol and Rob “When I joined eHarmony, I wasn’t totally prepared to start a serious relationship with anyone but just kept an open mind. For this reason I asked for matches worldwide not thinking in my wildest dreams that miracles really do happen, but they do! When a profile came up for a guy in New South Wales, Australia whose criteria matched mine, I thought sending an ice breaker wouldn’t be a bad idea as after all it was the other side of the world and what harm could it do?"
From: Cardiff, Glamorgan
Engaged: 15th November 2011
Traci and Andrew "I originally clicked on the eHarmony site with a very cynical attitude. I questioned how you could find the "perfect match" by answering a bunch of questions. I completed your questionnaire and clicked finish thinking it would than ask me for payment in order to proceed. To my surprise it started searching!"
