How is eHarmony different than other dating sites? They truly get to know their clients and what they're looking for by digging deep and using a one-of-a-kind questionnaire to uncover a client's attitudes, beliefs and personality. Once they learn about a client they introduce them to other singles who truly complement them, across 29 key areas that increase the potential of a great long-term relationship. It worked for these bloggers and their loved ones so they were very excited to share their stories with you! Click on the stories below to learn how eHarmony offers a better chance at love. Each of the bloggers is also giving away a $100 Visa gift card so be sure to stop by each post to read their romantic tales!
The BlogHer eHarmony sweepstakes runs from February 14, 2012 to March 15, 2012 and is only open to individuals who, at the time of entry deadline, are legal residents of the United States and are 18 years or older.

Their union and relationship is a very apparent perfect match. You can tell when you meet some couples that they work perfectly together and are clearly meant to be together. I don't know anyone who knows Carolyn and Jason who would say they aren't perfect together...they complement each other well, their strengths and weaknesses exist together in a way that seems impossible....more
My advice to people reading this that might be in a similar situation is to just have an open mind and trust that eHarmony will deliver matches to you based on the criteria YOU select. This is not MySpace dating from 2005. Remember that? HA! No, this is truly a service that finds someone that could potentially be a good fit for you, based on what you value in life. Just give it a shot. You might find someone who is absolutely perfect for you, someone you did not know even existed. You have nothing to lose, right?...more
Humbly, I think we both get that we are luckier than we deserve to be. The real fairy tale part of all of this is we never would have met if it weren’t for that job, which moved me from my family and friends. We never would have met if I wouldn’t have been SO lonely I resorted to the internets bringing me a man. I’m not a big believer in the “everything happens for a reason” thing; I feel like stupid people say that to make themselves feel better when they make a mistake or something, but I can’t think of a better way to put it. So there ya have it....more
So, right, we meet the next day–right here, this coffee shop, this table–and it was immediate. I know that sounds really corny, and I still insist that there’s no such thing as ‘love at first sight’, but there was definitely attraction–for me, at any rate-at first site; after all this time I still can’t speak for the cryptic Henry. We spent four hours at this table, and after sitting idle over the last cup of the night, we were finally asked to leave....more
Good news, kids. It all works out in the end. In the past year, I've watched not one but two of my most amazing single friends find The One. Just thinking about how happy they are now makes me break out in a smile as big as the sun. One of those friends, Jennifer, immediately came to mind when I received an email from BlogHer asking if I knew anyone who had found love using eHarmony. Jennifer should work for eHarmony's marketing department because HOOBOY does she sing their praises!...more
Since I was looking for a quality relationship, I went to a quality website. No sifting through pages upon pages of profiles that fit some vague criteria you thought would 'narrow things down.' No trudging through countless dates with people you have nothing in common with. No canoodling with people who could care less about your values and life goals, let alone share them with you. (Plus, this process seemed to lessen the probability of running into the aforementioned Freaks, Liars, and People That Can Hurt You. Bonus!)...more
That night we all asked both of them why they chose eHarmony. Jake said he wanted to find his wife, and that was not going to happen in a bar. He works in a very male-dominated field and did not meet women that way. Kayla is a teacher and said a very similar thing. Jake added that he wanted to meet a quality girl, not a quantity of bad first dates....more
If you google online dating sites, you come up with thousands of options. After I looked into some free sites, because let's face it, I'm cheap, I decided to look into sites with monthly fees. My thought was that if someone was willing to spend a monthly fee, it was probably going to weed out the kind of guys I didn't want to date. I ended up choosing eHarmony, in part because they had a sale going on, but also because they didn't take their matches lightly....more
His answers to my questions were very serious but also witty. It was an added bonus that he was handsome, and I looked forward to our emails. Within a couple of weeks he asked to meet me! Our first date was 5 hours long over coffee at The Village Inn. I remember thinking I could listen to this man talk for the rest of my life! We discovered our families were so similar, and we felt the same way about so many things. It didn't take long for us to feel like we'd known each other for years and to start spending all of our free time together....more
We continually marvel at how much we have in common. We seriously say, "Thanks eHarmony," all the time! We have a great deal of ease, and I really think it's because of our personality profiles being so well matched. We had basically no adjustment in moving in together or living together after the wedding. Even in those silly-but-not-so-silly-things, like putting the cap back on the toothpaste. We are really well matched in all areas....more
