Featured Success Couple: Jeff and Kimberly

Dear Match.com,

Honestly I can’t believe that Jeff & I became connected but I am incredibly happy we did!!! Here’s my story: I subscribed to match.com in June of 2010. When I filled out my profile, I entered 50 miles as the farthest distance, along with my detailed profile… (Jeff lives almost a 100 miles from my doorstep but we’ll get to that!). I went on about 5-6 “first dates,” some nice gentlemen, some not, either way, no matches. I had 2 weeks left on my subscription and was ready to throw in the towel. That morning, I received a “Daily 5” in my inbox. I would always look over them but had NEVER once checked any of the boxes indicating my interest. Well, I saw Jeff’s photo and was VERY taken by it! I proceeded to read his profile and really LIKED what I saw. 🙂 Continue reading

Featured Success Couple: Lacie and Ellis

 

I always said, “Those dating sites are stupid. Who needs those things?” Laughed every time I saw the commercial.

I had just moved back to my hometown in Mississippi. I didn’t know anyone after being away for a few years. Out of boredom, I suddenly had the urge to give the free trial a run and see how it went for me on match.com. I really didn’t have any hopes to meet anyone but during the free trial, you only get so many features for free. No way was I paying to meet someone online. That’s what I thought. I’d met only about 2 people and in my first week something told me to just buy a month membership, what would it hurt. So, I did. I kept coming across this one profile. Of course I’d read it a few times and move on because he lived too far away, but something always drew me back there. A few days in, I received a wink from that somewhat intriguing person and thought, “Ya know what, I’ll wink back just to see what happens next”. Continue reading

Featured “Sports & Dating” Success Couple: Erin & Jude

As a part of our Sports & Dating feature we’d love to share with you a success story that was made possible by the love of sports throughout the entire relationship. Check out Erin & Jude’s success story below! 

We emailed each other here on Match. Both of our Match.com profiles reflected our love of sports: Jude featured a picture of himself on television as his main profile pictures, and I stated in my profile text that her date “must love sports- even golf!” as my family loves to golf. Within days we started talking on the phone. We decided to go on our first date a week and a half later. On our first date, he picked me up at my house in Batavia, IL and we went out to dinner. Upon his arrival to my house, he didn’t realize I still lived with my parents. So he came up to the door and actually met my parents first!!!! If things could not funnier, after dinner on the way back to my house he got pulled over!!! Continue reading

Featured Success Couple: Nina and Jeremy

 

Thank you Match.com, because of you I met my soul mate, received a kidney transplant, and have an amazingly life!

Jeremy and I were both new to Match. I was skeptical about online dating so I ignored most of the messages I received at first. It was only after Jeremy sent me a second email did I take the time to look at his profile and realized he was interesting. Continue reading

Featured Success Couple: Amy and Chad

When people ask where we met I am proud to say “On Match.com.” Yes, it can happen!

Chad and I met at a local Mexican restaurant on a Saturday afternoon for margaritas. I had been on Match off and on for a few years and had met some nice men and even had a couple of relationships. So when I found myself single again I thought I would try Match again. Chad had only been on Match for a month or so. I am actually the one who contacted him first. I had always found that when I did customized searches I found more of the men that interested me. Continue reading

Featured Success Couple: Rebecca and Eric

In February of 2011, I (Rebecca), was browsing match.com, and I was curious as to whether or not there were any other musicians online. I searched under the keyword “Peabody”, which is where I had gone to school, and only one person came up- Eric. After browsing Eric’s profile, I decided that he probably wasn’t for me, although he was very handsome. He was listed as ‘currently separated’ (strike #1), and he was 2 years younger (strike #2- I ALWAYS date older). Since Peabody is such a small intimate conservatory, I decided to email just to say hello and see if we had any mutual friends. He wrote me back right away, and asked if I’d like to grab a coffee. Continue reading

Featured Success Couple: Erin and Robert

My mom met her husband on Match. My sister met her husband on Match. As the only single woman left in my family, I signed up and started looking. I mean, it worked for all the other women in my family! My mom and my sister both got married to their Match.com men (one in 2000, one in 2008). My mom was engaged to her match after three weeks! Continue reading

Featured Success Couple: Dave and Christa

I actually saw Dave over five years before I met him on match.com. I was a nurse in the ICU, and he was a doctor. I never said hello because I was too shy, but I thought he was very attractive and had a kind smile.

Five years later and after law school, multiple relationships, and moving to a different city, I decided to take a look at match.com, not knowing what to expect. I at first did not sign up to be a member; I just took a look at singles in my area. And upon perusing through, there he was – Dave’s smiling headshot. I joined instantly, but did not put up a picture. I sent him an email, introducing myself asking him if he would like to go out to dinner.

He didn’t write me back for two weeks. When he did, I was elated. Every time he emailed me, it made my day. On our first date, we both wore the same color blue t-shirts and blue jeans. We were inseparable ever since that day. Continue reading

Featured Success Couple: Dawn and Charlie

After 16 years of marriage, my husband left me for another man – yes, he was gay. Thankfully, our friendship survived, but obviously the marriage did not. Suddenly, at the age of 39, I was back in the dating game – a place I hadn’t been since my senior year in college. I decided to try online dating, and Match.com seemed like the best fit.
