Elizabeth and Andrew
Elizabeth: “I had recently joined eHarmony after a period of trying other methods such as speed dating and blind dates, which just hadn’t worked. I was hopeful but not expectant that I would find someone on eHarmony. I was actually a little overwhelmed at first by the amount of possible dates appearing in my inbox but after filtering through my matches one by one, I then saw Andrew.
There was just something about Andrew’s profile that spoke to me. One of his photographs was him wearing a multicoloured headscarf which wasn’t the best photo I’ve ever seen, but luckily he had more photographs so I didn’t archive him straight away! His other photographs definitely saved him from that fate.
Our first date was at a Greek restaurant on London’s South Bank. Although we were both nervous, we quickly felt relaxed in each other’s company. We swapped stories about our travels and at the end of the meal agreed that we would definitely meet again.
Since then our relationship has gone from strength to strength and we’ve developed a really strong bond. When in each other’s company we are able to laugh, silly billy, talk, share new experiences and be happy and affectionate. Not only do Andrew and I look back on the past ten months with great fondness, we also look forward to all the wonderful experiences we have yet to share.”
Andrew: “I’d tried a number of dating sites but when my sister urged me to try eHarmony, I registered. I was on the site for two to three years and I had met many interesting people but nobody that I really clicked with, until I met Elizabeth.
I was actually on the verge of giving up when I came across Elizabeth’s profile and as soon as I saw her I was glad I’d persevered.”
