Couples' personal stories

Real-life success story

Sue and Stephen

Location: Leeds, England
Engaged: 27th May 2006

Steve first contacted me on 3rd May 2005 and from the questions he asked in stage one I knew straight away we were on the same wavelength. We were both hooked on mailing each other from the outset and by a week later had spoken on the phone as we were now emailing several times a day! We met on the 21st May; we were both very nervous but persevered through our nerves and got on really well. We had so much in common and are still learning of more and more we have in common in so many ways.

We have spoken every day since and spent the last few months travelling up and down the country at weekends to see each other (I live in Leeds and Steve lives in oxford). It was soon obvious to both of us that things were serious, and I think we both knew we were "right" for each other and would end up getting married by the end of the summer.

Steve proposed to me on Christmas Eve, and our families were thrilled. We are in the process of buying a house together and I am moving down to Oxford next week for us to start our new lives together. We will be getting married on May 27th this year, and both can't wait! Everyone has commented on how well matched we are, and I think this is all down to your extensive questionnaire! Steve was the 1st person I met with eHarmony (I had only been on line about a month), and although he had been on line slightly longer, he had not yet met up with anyone either.

We would both definitely recommend eHarmony to other people; we hadn't really had any previous experience of dating sites/agencies and didn't really hold high hopes of it being successful so the whole experience has just blown us away!
