Alison and Dean
"I joined eHarmony because I wanted to find my life partner and a good friend of mine met her husband online and so it prompted me to give it a go. I really liked the detail of all the questions in the sign up process and the careful matching as a result. I enjoyed reading through Dean’s profile with his down to earth sense of humour. He really stood out."

Sarah and Jonathan
"I had been single for ages and after trying with lots of other online dating sites, I decided to give eHarmony a go. It was about finding the right person and I couldn’t believe how well eHarmony matched me and Jonathan. One little example, we are both always on time (or early) for things. It was amazing to turn up for our first date and Jonathan was already there waiting for me. That made a huge difference to countless dates where I was left in the rain waiting for some random guy. "

Christina Dan
“After my friend got married to a guy she met on an online dating site, I was curious to find out if online dating actually works. I decided to join eHarmony and see how it goes. It felt great being single but with all my friends getting married and having children I thought I was ready to give it a go."

Gwen and Terry
"I’d been using the site for a few months before I saw Gwen’s profile and sent her an email. Much to my surprise, she replied saying, “Hi Tony!” That made me chuckle so I emailed back saying that actually my name isn't Tony, but it’s Terry. She emailed back straight away saying, “Oh, sorry Trevor!” She had me laughing so much already that I had to keep emailing her. I wind her up all the time about it now!"

Jean and John
“I wasn't particularly nervous about our first date although I have to say I was nervous about what Jean might think of me. I was pretty confident that I would really like her so I was hoping she’d feel the same."

Amrita and Jatinder
"Before I joined eHarmony I didn't think I would find someone who would match my sense of humour and someone who I would love truly for who they are. I remember filling in the application form and thinking ‘Oh my God, this is so tiresome’ but it actually made me think logically about what I wanted in my future partner and most importantly reflect on myself as an individual. It's very easy to say, ‘I want my partner to be handsome, funny, loyal etc’ but the questions made me think about who I was myself."

Liz and Nick
“My dad was actually the one who convinced me to register for eHarmony, and he even paid for my year subscription! Annoyingly for him, I came across Nick’s profile on my third day on the website! I sent him a smile because I thought he was really attractive in his photos and also because he loves to read and I do too."

Steve and Jess
“We’re going on our first holiday to Mexico for two weeks in November – I am already counting down the days!”

Jenny and Fans
"I was a bit wary to introduce him to my family because I hadn’t told them I had met him online and I knew my dad and brother would have something to say about it. As expected, they were quite concerned when they found out as they are very protective of me. To make it worse, Fans also didn’t give off the best first impression!"
