Elaine and John
Elaine, “I’d been married twice before when I joined eHarmony on a free communication weekend. I'd been on another dating site and although I'd been out on a few dates, I hadn't met anyone I wanted to see again! My friends told me that I should give up but I was determined to find someone special. I joined eHarmony on the Friday evening and although at the time I thought there were too many questions for me to answer I now know it's a very good way of getting the best out of people.
I had a message from John on the Saturday! We exchanged questions and answers over a few days. I knew John was in Yorkshire and that didn't faze me even though I lived on the Isle of Wight. We started chatting on the phone within the week and before I met John I knew he was the one. Three weeks later we met in person when John came to visit me and it was a lovely weekend. I wasn’t nervous because I’d been on dates with other people, so I was just really eager to meet the person I’d been speaking to for a month. It was so relaxed and as if we'd known each other for ever. I was looking after my children over the weekend so when John was visiting we got to cook together, watch TV and just enjoy each other’s company.
I think that sometimes it’s very easy to get down-hearted when internet dating. Sometimes the impression is given that when online dating, people only meet one person and that’s it! I can testify that this isn’t the case. I had to go on a number of dates before I met my perfect match but it was certainly worth the wait! John is the most caring, considerate man I have ever met and I love him so very much.”
John, “I originally went on eHarmony because I was getting fed up with other time-wasting sites. I think that the way that eHarmony works seems to be more sensible and serious about helping people meet up. It has a very thorough sign up procedure which asks the right questions.
I ended up being on eHarmony for over 4 months before I found Elaine. She is a very special and unusual person who loves me for who I am and does not want to change me. We’re both very compatible with each other with regards to strength, love, respect and commitment. I love Elaine very much and she is the best thing to ever happen to me.”
