I met my wife on eHarmony in 2005. We will have been married for 10 years this coming June.
I liked eHarmony precisely because I could be so specific about what I was looking for in a wife.
I actually signed up for a one year membership the week my divorce became final. (I had already long since mourned the loss of my first marriage. The healing was done.)
Seven months later I met @GraySailorsBride. She ticked all my boxes and then some. We have a blended family (my son, her daughters) that fit together amazingly well.
Here's the thing that set eHarmony apart from other sites. eHarmony is focused on compatability first. In the process of setting up your account, you put together two lists of ten items each from 60 possible choices for each list. One list is the "must haves" the other list is the "can't stands".
One of my "must haves" read like this:
"My match must be willing to accept my child as her own."
If a woman could not agree to that requirement, we never would be matched up in the first place. That was a phenomenal savings of time and money. There is simply no point in even going on a first date if nothing can ever come of it.
My search for a wife took 7 months. A decade later, we are still in our honeymoon phase. What better endorsement could I give?
