eharmony Love Stories: Janine and Andrew
Janine and Andrew met on eharmony in November 2013 and married in November 2016. Here they talk us through their love story
‘I’d been single for five years before I decided to join eharmony. I’d been on other dating sites but hadn’t had a very good experience. eharmony stood out from the crowd; I liked the way that they match you based on shared qualities and personality traits rather than looks.
Andy’s profile stood out to me straightaway. I could tell immediately that he was really genuine and we had an instant connection. We talked for three weeks before deciding to meet up. Our first date was at a pub, the Swan, in Beaconsfield and it went well – it lasted for five hours!
After our first meeting, things between us progressed quite quickly. We talked every day and, despite the distance between us, met up at least once a week. It didn’t take long for us to meet each other’s friends and family and we first said, ‘I love you’ about four months into our relationship.’
‘I think Janine and I have a unique relationship; we just click! We have the same sense of humour, great chemistry and so much in common.
I proposed to Janine at home. I hadn’t told anyone beforehand and it was a complete surprise to Janine. We were in the hot tub in the garden one day and I just asked the question. We got married in Taunton in Somerset. It was an amazing day, but it almost ended in disaster. We arrived at the hotel at the end of the night and I realised I’d left my wallet at the venue! Thankfully, we did still manage to get our room.
Our daughter Ella-Anne was born on 12th February 2016. We both loved the name Ella and she’s named Anne after my mother, who unfortunately is no longer with us.
The next step for us is buying a house. I never know where my work may take me, so we don’t know exactly what the future holds – we could even end up living abroad!’
