Helen and Scott
In the beginning…
Helen and Scott were first matched on 2nd Sept 2008, after both coincidentally stumbling across eHarmony while looking for online dating options. After completing the eHarmony questionnaire, they were matched with each other almost immediately and they began emailing. Initial conversations seemed very natural, easy and exciting. So three weeks later Scott arranged their first mystery dinner date. However it never actually happened as Helen was struck down with terrible food poisoning at the last minute!
The first date (the second attempt!)
A week later they tried again. Scott organised their second ‘first date’ at a beautiful restaurant overlooking Sydney Harbour. They talked non stop for hours until the wait staff turned out the lights to finally get them to leave!
As the weeks passed, Scott and Helen spent time enjoying strolls in the park and picnics, and then Scott suggested an out of town mystery weekend date.
So six weeks after meeting, they were off to a luxurious remote property in the Hunter Valley where they had nothing but time to get to know each other without the distractions of their day-to-day worlds – with the exception of the local Kangaroos who spent most of their time right outside their cabin! On Sunday morning Helen was surprised by the sound of a helicopter landing in the front yard. Scott had organised to whisk the two of them off to a local winery for a beautiful lunch and plenty of Champagne!
They soon realised they had something very special, and decided to spend the Christmas period together and meet one another’s families. A second trip to the Hunter Valley after Christmas for more quality time together served to cement the foundations of their blossoming relationship.
It wasn't long before Helen and Scott were living together.
