Tracey and Mark
Tracey: “We were matched in the first week I joined, but I was too nervous at first to reply to all the letters I had received from guys. Mark sent me another letter one month later and I was more secure and we started sending letters back and forth. We’d been communicating for a month, which had been getting longer and longer as we realised we had so much in common. We finally met in a coffee shop for a morning coffee which turned into lunch then a stroll. Five hours later I had to go and pick up my 6 year old son, Kaan! We then exchanged phone numbers and met up the next weekend and ran the Bridge to Brisbane 10km run followed by lunch for Mark’s birthday and our first kiss.
Although we bought the ring together, Mark officially proposed while we were travelling through Italy, on the coast in Cinque Terre. We married with his family and close friends present in Vienna, Austria and then a month later with my family and friends at Mt Coot-tha, Brisbane.
There were definitely sparks from the first moment! Mark and I had both been single for a long time and both felt that eHarmony offered a safe and non-confronting environment. I did not feel pressured and was able to go at my own pace. Friends recommended eHarmony as being a more professional site. Also it was considered the site for long term relationships, with a view to marriage where desired, the other sites were more short term orientated.
We would never have met without eHarmony. You have made it not only possible for us to meet and fall in love but we now have 7 month old Zachary as a brother to 7 year old Kaan. At the age of 40 this was something I believed impossible! My beautiful son has a new Dad and we welcomed another little boy to our family not long ago."
