After a particularly hard breakup, Saira had all but given up hope of ever finding a worthy man to date. But, after some light nudging from a family friend, she decided to give Match a try just to see what happened.
It wasn’t long before Jan sent Saira a message she’ll never forget.
“It was one of the most simple, direct, and warm messages I received,” Saira recalls. “Jan had picked up on how important my profession is to me and used it as an icebreaker. And it worked!”
The two exchanged Match emails for the next month, all the while getting to know each other better and better. Finally, Jan asked for Saira’s number to move their communication to the next level. At the time, the two lived in separate cities, so they agreed to meet halfway in-between at New York’s Grand Central Terminal. Their first date involved dinner, and over the next few dates, Saira knew she had met someone special.
“I could tell Jan was a genuine, respectful, hardworking man, and I was so excited to see where this could go.”
For the next year, the two remained in their separate cities, making the constant commute to each other. Finally, they made the leap of moving in together and this past July, Jan planned a surprise proposal in their first meeting spot: Grand Central Terminal!
“It was a complete surprise and so beautiful,” Saira gushed. “Thank you, Match. You helped me find my happily ever after!”
You’re so welcome, Saira. We wish all the best for you and Jan and hope your wedding day is everything you’ve dreamed of and more!
