eharmony Love Stories: Tom and Andrea
Tom and Andrea met on eharmony in September 2011 and married in July 2015. Here they talk us through their love story
‘I’d been single for about a year before deciding to join eharmony. My friend recommended the site and I was impressed as soon as I signed up. It was easy to use, and my matches were good. Tom stood out from the crowd though; he had good photos and his profile felt honest.
We spoke for a week before deciding to go on our first date at One Lombard Street bar. After meeting at 7pm, we were still there by closing – the staff were clearing up around us! We met up a few more times the next week, and Tom even postponed business flights so we could squeeze in an extra date. Six weeks later we went to Barbados together for a week, where we both said ‘I love you’ for the first time.
Tom and I are different in many ways, but we have the right things in common. Our personalities, philosophy on life, and chemistry are all in sync.’ We’re never bored of one another’s company. We never want to be apart and rarely are.’
‘A friend recommended eharmony – he had some great date stories from the site. Andrea was the very first woman I was matched to and my only date from the site, and now we’re married!
I managed to surprise Andrea with my proposal, even though she was expecting it. Every time I booked a restaurant, she thought it might happen. So, I booked a really romantic restaurant and then proposed at home the night before, just to catch her a little off guard. There were flowers, music and lighting all arranged to surprise Andrea when she got home from work.
We married outdoors at Pennyhill Park Hotel in Bagshot. The weather the day before was terrible – it poured down all day – but luckily, it cleared up just in time for our big day. Hopefully, the next step for us will be moving out of London to a place big enough for us and, at the very least, a French bulldog.’
