Kate and Alex "In 2011 I had a list of ten things to do with my year which I’d never done before. Joining an online dating site was one of them so at the beginning of the year I signed up to eHarmony. We were matched on Valentine’s Day and I saw that as a sign that this was meant to be, even though Alex lived so far away in New Hampshire, USA."
From: Leeds, West Yorkshire
Married: 26th January 2012
Ashley and Alex "I never thought that love could be found in such a way but since I met Alex I have become the biggest supporter of eHarmony. Our kindred souls linked across waters and cyberspace to join in perfect unison. We can’t thank eHarmony enough and recommend the site to all of our friends."
Engaged: 12th November 2011
Yemi and Rob "By no means is any relationship a walk in the park and it requires a lot of work, especially if it’s long-distance. eHarmony just provides the platform for meeting someone that a lot of us struggle to get onto, especially in my case as a single parent."
From: Streatham, Greater London
Engaged: 10th December 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!"
From: Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
Matched: 8th November 2008
Sarah and Ryan "I turned on "other countries" and we were matched within the day. We both were a bit wary at first, but we went through the guided communication blazingly fast and found kindred hearts in each other's words. (And it didn't help that we found each other sexy!) Then came the fun part trying to figure out how to talk with each other - Skype became our new best friend."
From: Sheffield, Yorkshire
Married: 1st January 2008
Janelle and Matthew We emailed each other for a few months, and really felt the connection, so we decided to start talking on the phone. But he lived in Oxford, England and I lived in Reno, Nevada so I think we were both a little hesitant at first. Matthew is an archaeologist and asked me, semi-sarcastically, if I wanted to spend Christmas with him in North Africa!
From: Oxford, Oxfordshire
Married: 24th March 2008
John and Karen "While in Telluride, on a beautiful day with clear blue skies, aspen trees in gorgeous golden colour and snow on the ground suddenly John was down on one knee - first with a jokey huge fake diamond ring and then with the stunning ring he had helped design and had made for me - it was wonderful."
From: Windsor, Berkshire
Matched: 9th May 2009
Richard and Jamie "If 15 months ago someone had told me that I would meet my soul mate, wife, best friend and lover on eHarmony I would have laughed, but that is exactly what has happened and her name is Jamie. Both of us were recovering from broken relationships but neither of us had given up on the fact that there was someone special out there for us."
