Emma and Tom
Emma: “I’d been single for a while and was finding it hard to meet new people. I have a great group of friends who I spend a lot of time with so I didn’t find myself meeting anyone else. Work wasn’t an option for me either so I thought I’d try online dating. I’d tried a few other sites but I never met up with anyone because I just didn’t see anyone worth meeting. I’d been on eHarmony for about three months when Tom came along.
Tom and I met on a very cold and snowy Saturday evening for dinner in Covent Garden. I didn’t feel nervous because I’d had such a busy day that I hadn’t really had time to think about it. We’d also spoken on the phone quite a lot prior to meeting so it felt quite normal to be seeing him. Something just felt right about Tom and I was sure we’d hit it off.
Since our first date neither one of us has looked back and our relationship has gone from strength to strength. We've been dating for just over six months and are planning to move in together hopefully by the end of the year. My family loves him and couldn’t be happier for me.”
Tom: “I’d tried a few other online dating sites but didn’t really have much luck. I didn’t seem to find anyone who was looking for what I was looking for and I felt like it was a bit of a waste of time. I saw Emma’s profile and sent her a message (but I am sure that she sent me a ‘wink’ first, although she denies it)! I liked the look of her profile and when she replied I knew I wanted to get to know her more.
Our first date was great and there was never a dull moment, mainly because Emma didn’t stop talking! I knew I had to see her again and so I made sure I planned the second date before we left each other.
Our relationship gets better every day and we’re moving in together as soon as we can make it work, although we basically live together as it is!”
