Jodie and Andrew
Jodie: ”I had recently moved to Norwich and didn’t know anyone in the area; I’m not the clubbing type so I thought I’d give online dating a go. I knew eHarmony had a good reputation and it felt safe so I figured I’d give it a go.
I had quite a few messages but none of them really stood out to me; I didn’t feel like I wanted to reply but when Andrew sent me a message, I can’t put my finger on it but something made me want to respond to him and get to know him. We began chatting on eHarmony and I felt a connection straight away.
We had our first date at Frankie and Benny’s restaurant as I wanted something relaxed and not too fancy where we could get to know each other. We had a really funny time and I remember seeing a look of horror on Andrew’s face as I was tucking right into a big meaty pizza and telling him about how I was a vegetarian for the last 10 years! All he heard was the word ‘vegetarian’ and couldn’t believe what he was seeing. It took him a while and then we both burst out laughing and it really broke the ice.
We knew very quickly that we had something special and wanted to meet up again and it wasn’t long before we were meeting each other’s friends and families and spending loads of time together. A few months later, we moved in together which just felt so right; we wanted to be together all the time. Shortly after I moved in, Andrew went on a holiday with his friends that he’d booked months before we met, so I had the place to myself to do a very thorough clean and add a feminine touch which was much needed after living as a bachelor for so long! Needless to say he didn’t even notice when he got back!
We’ve been living together for the last three years and get on so incredibly well. We have the same sense of humour and tend to make the same jokes at the same time about the same things! We are always laughing together and winding each other up. My life has changed so much since I met Andrew; he makes me so lucky and I’m grateful every day that we’ve found each other.”
