Real couples share their relationship milestones in our new TV ads

by

What is it that makes a relationship special? There are the big milestones like moving in together, getting married and having kids. But what about those little moments in between all the big stuff, like your first date, first kiss, the silly pet names you have for each other, and all the other unique moments that make a couple… well, a couple?

It’s those mini milestones that we tapped into for our newest TV campaign. We wanted to show that relationships are built on much more than the ‘happily ever after’ ending – they’re about all those intimate moments that pepper each couple’s unique journey. We put the call-out to eharmony success couples across Australia to tell us about the mini milestones that capture their relationship. And the response was overwhelming!

In the end, we teamed with four fantastic couples from different walks of life and made them the stars of our new ads, which you can view by clicking here and here.

We sat down with our couples to find out why they tried eharmony, how they knew they had something special, and what makes them compatible.

Meet Compatible Matches

Cassandra and Matthew, matched in 2014

Why did you join eharmony? 

We were both single for some time and joined because we each have a child from a previous relationship and found it difficult meeting people who accepted the kids and understood the trials and tribulations (of being a single parent).

When did you first start communicating with each other?

May 2014. We started chatting on a Wednesday and by that Friday spent 3 hours on the phone chatting non-stop.

Tell us about your first date

Our first date was the Sunday that followed, which we spent eating Japanese food and chatting for 6 hours!

When did you realise this was something special? 

The moment our eyes locked… it was definitely ‘it.’

What makes you two compatible?

We have the same values, sense of humour, and we both have a lot of love to give.

What does the future hold for you two?

Marriage, another child, and just enjoying having a soul mate.

What’s your favourite thing to do together? 

Date night, random places, and watching The Walking Dead.

Kristen and Hugh, matched in 2012

Why did you join eharmony? 

Kirsten: I wasn’t meeting people I wanted to date or move forward in a relationship.

Tell us about your first date

We met at the pub for an after work drink. That was in January 2012 and, as they say, the rest is history!

Very early on – a few weeks after we met.

What makes you two compatible?

We’re very like-minded and enjoy each other’s company.

What does the future hold for you two?

Amanda and Rod, matched in 2014

Why did you join eharmony?

Amanda: I joined eharmony to meet a man whom I could love and enjoy life with.

Tell us about your first date

It was in March 2014 and we met for dinner at Pelligrini, an Italian restaurant in Melbourne. Since neither one of us was ready to end the date early, after dinner we walked around the city, talking about anything and everything. Amanda even endured blisters on her feet to keep the date going!

When did you realise this was something special? 

Amanda: The first time I met him.

What makes you two compatible?

We enjoy so many of the same things, and are both caring people who look after each other.

Tell us about your first date

We met for drinks at our local pub then had dinner and dessert at Glenelg.

When did you realise this was something special? 

Mark: Immediately after the first date.

What makes you two compatible?

We have a similar upbringing and vitality for life.

Happiness, hopefully marriage and if our age isn’t against us, an addition to our family.
