Our first date was like meeting an old friend
"Meeting for the first time was more like meeting a friend for coffee rather than meeting a perfect stranger. I knew that when we met that if it didn't work out it would be ok because we had already become friends out of the experience. "

eHarmony - what have I got to lose?
"I’d just about given up on the idea of love and finding happiness with someone and was determined to focus on my career. After seeing the eHarmony ads I thought, what do I have to lose? When I read Adam’s profile I liked him instantly and thought ‘wow, maybe there are decent guys out there looking for love’."

Long distance was never a worry for us
"I hesitated at first to 'smile' at Thomas because I thought "He is so good looking" - I thought he had lots and lots of smiles and didn't want to be "just another one". But after going back and forth from deciding to ‘smile’ at him, I took the plunge and did it! To my surprise he smiled back. I was so excited!"

I nearly cancelled our first date, and now we have a baby!
"Ollie and I were very clearly well matched from the first time we looked at each others' profiles. We had so many things in common it was ridiculous! We had quite a bit of email contact before arranging a first meeting which helped to ease any anxiety. Ollie even told me what he would wear to our first date so that I knew what the dress code was, which I thought was very considerate!"

Our first date nerves
"After about eighteen months spent moving on from a previous relationship, I was ready to find a lasting relationship with someone I had a lot in common with. I knew I wasn't going to find that person in a club or a pub. On New Year’s Eve, I saw an ad on TV for eHarmony and decided to give it a try."

Being a single parent made it difficult to date
“I joined eHarmony because I was a little lonely; I had separated from a long term partner six months before and relocating to a new town where I didn’t really know anyone. I am also studying full time in a 95% female profession and the opportunity to meet men never arose. In addition to that, having to decide when to broach the topic of my son makes dating difficult."

We let eHarmony do the hard work for us!
"I’d been single for a while before I decided to try eHarmony. I’d been on couple of other sites and had a couple of dates but wasn’t very impressed. I felt that the people I’d met weren’t really looking for a serious relationship. As soon as I completed the questionnaire I realised that eHarmony was different."

Mother knows best!
"It took me a while to complete the questionnaire, as I found it really challenged me to acknowledge what I wanted in a partner. I was quite astonished by the accuracy of my profile and was surprised that an internet survey could understand me so well!"

An adventurous first date
"I had only been single for a couple of months, having come out of a long relationship, but we had been in a rut for some time. Henri had been essentially single since his divorce a couple of years earlier."
