Angela and Ray

Nambucca Heads, NSW

In the beginning…

Angela decided to give online dating a try as a way of meeting someone new. Initially she was just curious as to what sites were out there and how they worked. She found that many sites didn’t provide her with information relevant to her. They just ‘skimmed the surface’ and she didn’t want to begin a relationship with someone based on superficial things, like how they looked in their profile picture. Angela decided she wanted to use a service that would help her to really get to know someone, which is why she tried eHarmony.

Although the relationship questionnaire Angela & Ray had to complete was time consuming, they were both confident the process would ensure they were being matched with people they would be compatible with. Angela liked the way eHarmony gradually introduced her to people and helped to guide her through the early communication stage.

Angela and Ray were matched on eHarmony in 2003. At this time Ray was living in Queensland and Angela lived in Western Australia. While they could not see what the other person looked like, they could see information on one another, such as likes and dislikes and relationship ‘must haves’, and both felt interested enough to email questions to find out more. Their fascination grew as they exchanged photos and began speaking over the phone.

The first date…

Angela & Ray realised they were a great match but they lived on opposite sides of the country and were scared that when they finally met there might not be any physical attraction. They needn’t have worried! In March 2004 they met face-to-face for the first time. After a quick hug at the airport they relaxed and it wasn’t long before they realised something very special was evolving.

The proposal…

In November 2004 Angela and Ray were engaged during a holiday to New Zealand and in January 2005 Angela moved to Queensland to be with Ray, they now reside in Nambucca Heads.

The wedding…

They have been happily married since April 2005 and heartily recommend eHarmony to anyone ready to find the love of their life.

Extra Notes…

Angela and Ray’s story is included in eHarmony’s book ‘Dating the second time around: Finding love that lasts’, a practical guide for people returning to the dating scene.
