Stavros and Sarah
Stavros: “I saw the eHarmony commercial on TV and thought they offered a great free communication weekend. I decided to just give it a go and see what it was like as I hadn't been in a relationship for years and had just given up. I got stuck into work and wasn’t very worried about finding a life partner. My routine was just work and sleep and get a coffee now and then with friends. My parents would whine, ‘How are you ever going to meet anyone? You don’t go out anymore.’ I saw the commercial on TV again just before Christmas and decided it was about time I met someone and because I joined, my whole life has changed for the better.
I started chatting to Sarah just before Christmas and couldn't believe how compatible we were, how close we lived to one another. We decided to meet on the 2nd January for coffee at the local shopping centre. We had a coffee and a chat and it was fantastic! We didn't stop talking and I can say that from that very first date I knew she was the one and that doesn't ever happen to me, only in the movies. Every day I am with Sarah I thank her for finding me and coming into my life because everyday just gets better and better!
I can’t believe how compatible we are and how good the matching works! On my birthday I proposed and Sarah said yes! We got married on 28th July, 2012, just a small wedding and life just gets better and better.”
Sarah: “I joined eHarmony in the hope of meeting my soul mate, someone to share my life with. I hadn't had a relationship for some time and I guess in many ways I had pretty much given up on meeting anyone. I chose eHarmony because I had heard that people are more serious about finding a partner rather than other sites. On our first date we met at the Coffee Club in Southland shopping centre, in 40 degree heat. Stavros and I just talked and talked and the time went by so quickly. When I went home I said to my Mum, ‘I think Stavros is the one.’ Before that I had been quite cynical of that saying as I did not think it could be possible. We agreed on our first date to see each other again and it became so clear on the second date that we were a complete match and wanted to be together.
Stavros is amazing in every way and I love him very much. He made me laugh and we were able to connect so easily. We are alike in so many ways.”
