Jo and Stephen
Jo: “Stephen and I both joined eHarmony in the summer of 2010. My subscription was ending and I wanted to make the most of my last few weeks as a subscriber. I hadn’t actually been on the site in ages, I’d only used it initially to meet people after my divorce but after all those months I logged back on and found a communication from Stephen.
We exchanged telephone numbers quite quickly and began texting each other over the next few weeks, sometimes throughout the night, texting each other about what TV programmes we were watching, what we were doing the next day, pretty much anything! I loved the text friendship we were having and then the question came through, ‘Do you want to meet up?’ I was so nervous and even delayed the date but then thought let’s just go for it.
The first date was slightly weird at first but amazing. I was so scared that Stephen wouldn’t live up to my expectations but felt as though I was finally meeting the man I seemed to know so much about. Stephen drove to my house and the second I opened the door I was hooked. He was so gorgeous and had a really attractive, Burnley accent. He even scored some Brownie points straight away, bringing me some gifts and even a little something for my daughter and for the dog!
We decided to stay at my house where we were both comfortable. We ordered take away and talked all night, I just didn’t want the night to end.”
