Match Success Story: Matt and Randall

Match Success Story: Matt and Randall

I am from North Carolina, but had moved out to California for work. After finding myself single again after 6 years, I realized I was homesick for the east coast. I began a job search and was in the thick of interviewing when I decided I would try Match. I thought I had nothing to lose since I was moving anyway. I met Randy my first week on the site. I had seen him around the neighborhood, but we didn’t go to the same bars or hang out with anyone in common. Read more…

Match Success Story: Kristena and Chris

Memorial Day Success Story: Kristena and Chris

It all started with me winking at Chris. He then sent me a message. We messaged back and forth for a while before exchanging email addresses and continued emailing while Chris was deployed. Chris and I first met in Kansas where he is currently stationed. For our first date, we went to the zoo and spent the day in 100° heat. Although we were both dying we talked and talked! Then we went to the Air Force base and he showed me the airplanes that he flies. After all of that adventure he took me to dinner and the conversation never stopped. It’s was a very spontaneous, wonderful date and the start to many more wonderful dates. Read more…

#FeelGoodFriday: Janet and Alex

My second husband left me for someone else, so when I got divorced, I never really expected that I would ever be married again. Not that I was opposed to it, but I was going to be a 2X divorced single mom of 3 boys so I didn’t have very high hopes. About 6 months after my divorce, I signed up for Match and went on several dates and even had a very short relationship. He wasn’t my perfect match and I decided to take a break for a while.
