Louisa and Robb
Louisa: “I’d been internet dating for four years when I met Robb through eHarmony. I’d tried a number of online dating websites and actually dated someone who I’d met online for a year, which unfortunately didn’t end well. I decided to try eHarmony as I thought I’d be more likely to find a serious relationship with a legitimate person. When we were matched I instantly liked Robb’s profile and as my month’s subscription was nearly over I hurriedly sent him an open communication.
Robb and I got on incredibly well. We went for our first date in a local pub one Sunday afternoon, a couple of weeks after I had made initial contact. I was so determined to find somebody right for me that I’d actually been on a date that same day with another of my eHarmony matches and I was worried that my date with Robb would lack chemistry as my earlier date had. It turned out that I had nothing to worry about. Our first date went so well and we had so much fun together that we decided to meet up the following Friday for dinner. Within about a fortnight I think we both knew we’d found someone pretty amazing.
We spent a romantic weekend away together in the Cotswolds about six weeks after we met. I then went on a girly holiday in Egypt and was really surprised when I returned to find that Robb had completed all of the little DIY jobs in my flat which I’d been meaning to do for years! I knew then that I’d found a keeper!
Robb proposed on holiday in July having smuggled the most beautiful ring to the South of France in the bottom of his trainer. We’re now planning our wedding for the 28th July 2012. Neither of us believes that there’s just one person for each person in the world, but we were just instantly comfortable. I still can’t believe I met Robb online as it feels like I’ve known him forever!”
