Meet Match’s First Success Couple: Bill and Freddi

In celebration of Match turning 20, we decided reach back to our “original” success couple – the first online dating success story who met on Match when we pioneered the category in 1995. Meet Bill and Freddi Straus. We sat down with the happy couple from California to find out how they initially met on the site, their first date story and what life’s like today in a world where meeting online is now the norm.

Match Success Couple: Rhonda and Paul

Match Success Couple: Rhonda and Paul

We met on February 16, 2015 and we still remember the first wink and email that brought us together. We then exchanged telephone numbers and personal emails. Then, we were in touch daily via phone, internet, text and Skype. We could feel the connection with all of our communication and it was very strong. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Mallory and David

Match Success Story: Mallory and David

I was a single mom of 2 kids after a divorce, and I was looking for a meaningful relationship. After trying other dating sites and meeting guys on my own I gave Match.com a try. I went on a lot of first dates and one day I got a message from David, “I wanted to compliment you on you smile, it’s beautiful. I know that was cheesy, sorry, but that was the first thing I noticed. Have a great day.” We messaged and texted back and forth until we scheduled a date for the following week. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Julie and Chad

Match Success Couple: Julie and Chad

Chad and I met on Match.com. He first emailed me on February 9, 2015. I responded to his email on February 10th and we chatted most of that day. We agreed to meet on the following Friday, February 13th and set up a time and place for a date. Chad and I both were not looking for a serious relationship, but rather just looking to meet new people and go out and have fun. We agreed that we were on the same page and not looking for a relationship. We were both actively dating other people and were open and honest about our intentions. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Katie and Tim

Match Success Couple: Katie and Tim

Tim and I were both young widows who lost our late spouses 3 years ago. We thought that we would never date again. We both took a chance and posted a few pictures and a couple of words to our profiles. Tim is from Connecticut and I am from Long Island. We met for lunch on our first date… and the rest is history! A year later we are now engaged and getting married this fall. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Stephanie and Timothy

Match Success Couple: Stephanie and Timothy

Stephanie was about to sign off of Match.com after many unsuccessful dates. Prior to discontinuing her account, Stephanie received one more email from Tim explaining how much respect he had for her profession, working with special need students. Tim had an adorable picture with his dog Carl, also couldn’t live without Starbucks and his computer, like Stephanie, and the phone calls just continued. Their first date was at a brewery in New Brunswick, where it was an instant connection. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Ruth and Jason

Match Success Couple: Ruth and Jason

We are happily married and about to celebrate our 10 year anniversary! I had given up on finding my match but decided to go out on a date with “a friend”. With no makeup on, I adventured out to meet someone that did not necessarily look attractive at all on his pictures but seemed like a very cultured and fun person. We met at Barnes and Noble in downtown Fort Worth. I came through one door and he walked through another and we met in the middle of the store. Both on our cellphones, we were talking, trying to find each other. We finally met and he gave me a hug and stepped on my toes! The rest is history. We were married on 7/7/2007 at 7pm. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Nick and Heather

Match Success Couple: Nick and Heather

I am happy to announce on February 28th, 2015 at the Azul Sensatori Hotel in Mexico, I will be marrying Heather, the girl of my dreams who I met through Match.com. I wish I could give Match.com full credit with this success story and for allowing me to meet Heather, but unfortunately I cannot (reason why described below). I know it is cliché to say “I am marrying the girl of my dreams”, because doesn’t every guy or girl seem to say that about the one they are marrying? For me, I can honestly say Heather is the girl of my dreams because everything I ever asked God for, or wanted in a partner, I have with her. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Amberlyn and Troy

Match Success Couple: Amberlyn and Troy

I have grown up always believing in the fairy tale; hoping to have a good story of my own one day that rivaled those in Disney movies. My story starts in my living room as a single 25 year old watching network television on a Sunday. I had grown tired of the weekend routine of going to the bars only to find the “right” guy in all the wrong places (I should have known- Cinderella’s love story didn’t start with “I’ll have a beer, please.”).

Match Success Couple: Kristy and Chris

Match Success Couple: Kristy and Chris

At last the search is over… we finally meet our match, literally! Chris and I met on Match.com. For me, I had tried the site many times over the years. For Chris, it was his first! Thank goodness I decided to give it one more try because in the week I had my profile up Chris emailed me! And as they say, the rest is history.  Read more…
