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…

Match Success Couple: Alana and Michael

A Valentine’s Day Story: Alana and Michael

Michael and I met via Match.com and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect fit to my life. Our first date, by mistake, was on Valentine’s Day of 2012 (he still thinks I set him up on purpose to meet this day because I needed a V-day date…so not the case). We met in my home city of Huntington Beach on Main Street which is a well-known and very busy street. Once I had parked and walked in to meet Michael, the entire city had a blackout. I had to try and find him in the dark–exciting but scary. We sat for 2 hours under candle light getting to know each other waiting for the lights to come on. A year later I relocated to Sacramento as he had moved back earlier that year for work–and today I am ENGAGED to marry my soul mate.

UPDATE: In June 2014, the man of my dreams married me in a beautiful rustic/vintage barn setting with 170 guests to witness. It was also on that day that we “officially” announced to friends and family who didn’t already know, that we were a couple made from Match.com. A few of the adults were shocked that we met online, but most of the crowd just fell in love with the thought that it really CAN happen. We had so many people coming up to us telling us about their personal stories, or confirming they were going to give it a shot as our story had been so inspiring.

Fast forward to 2015 and The Klingman’s (that’s Michael and I) are happy to announce we are 4 months away from having our first child – a sweet baby girl. My life is beyond perfect and more than I could have ever asked for. Michael and I often talk about where we would be today had our paths not crossed with him relocating temporarily to Orange County, and both of us jumping on Match.com. It’s a true love story and I thank God every day for bringing so much happiness into our lives. We are lucky and we know it.
