Spectacular First Dates

Allan and Shirley

Fareham, Hampshire

Shirley: “I joined eHarmony on my birthday last year because I was feeling quite lonely and bored with my ordinary, day-to-day life.

I had fairly firm restrictions with my matching and I didn’t want to be sent matches outside of my hometown. I didn’t see the point really. Why would I want to meet someone so far from me? When Allan started talking to me, I did notice his location but thought it wouldn’t hurt to have a chat. We started emailing and the more we spoke, I found that the distance was less and less important and I really wanted to meet him.

I can’t even describe how nervous I was about meeting him but he made me laugh so much from start to finish. I couldn’t even eat my lunch because I was laughing so much. When he told me at the end of the date that he wanted to see me again, I just melted.

My life couldn’t be any better right now. We live together and he has had me laughing ever since the day I met him. I can’t wait to see that the future holds for us.”

Allan: “I was living at my sister’s house and feeling a bit lonely so I decided to give online dating a go. I noticed Shirley’s profile a couple of times but held off sending her an email because she lived quite far away. One day, her profile appeared again so I thought I’d just say “hello” and now I am so glad that I did!

Shirley spent Christmas with my family and after the New Year we went and visited her daughter for a week, and then her son for another week. Everyone is really happy for us and we moved in together in February. We’re both very easy-going people and we’re laughing all the time.”
