Match Success Story: Carrie and Scott

Match Success Story: Carrie and Scott

The first date started as an afternoon coffee or drink because neither one of us wanted to commit more time than that, plus it was New Year’s Eve 2013 so we each had other plans! Well, one drink lead to another, then some food, then an invite for him to join the party I was already going to and he opted to go for it and hang out with a room of strangers for the night. It included good food, great new friends made, lots of laughs and dancing into the New Year. So we say that our first date lasted two years. Read more…

Match Success Couple Laurie and William

Match Success Couple: Laurie and William

Match is a great way to start the conversation. Something catches your attention; a smile, a style, the wit of their profile. All of the things that probed me to look a little deeper.  At first glance, I saw that Bill had a nice smile and a warmth to his eyes that made me stop and read more. Then there were all of the similar things in common right up to having a May birthday. So I wrote him and described the perfect birthday date. I got a response right away and we planned to meet at the local Match.com coffee spot … aka Starbucks. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Rhoda and John

Match Success Couple: Rhoda and John

It was a Saturday evening when John sent me a message. I deleted it, as I thought he was coming home from a party after having a few drinks. He wrote me the next morning and again I deleted it as he confirmed he had just come home after the hospital holiday party and found my profile. That evening he wrote me again but this time more about himself, his culture and family. Often people write the way they speak and I knew I had an interesting person connecting with me. I re-read his profile and kept saying to myself-that is me! What he is asking for me is me! We arranged to speak in a few days as I was still traveling for work. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Shelly and Price

Match Success Couple: Shelly and Price

Price and Shelly both live in Tallahassee and never met one other even after 11 years; Price moved to Tallahassee in 1999 and Shelly in 2003. After a year of searching online, Shelly saw Price’s profile and sent him a wink. He quickly responded with an e-mail which turned into their first phone call (lasting 2 hours!). They made plans to have their first date the following week. After dinner and drinks they both decided they had a great night.  Read more…

Match Success Couple: Michelle and Nick

I have been wanting to try Match.com for a while but just never got around to it. One night after a bit too much wine, I found a Groupon for a 1 month membership to Match. I decided it was time. I filled out my profile and also began browsing. I saw a few guys that I thought were attractive and one in particular caught my eye. I was not sure how the website worked yet, so I accidentally “winked” at him. Then, I went to sleep. Read more…

Match Success Couple: Emily and Jacob

My mom has taught me a lot about life and love, but if there is one thing that sticks out, she told me to find a man who makes me laugh. I am proud to say that I did. Read more…

Don & Samantha match success couple

Match Success Couple: Samantha and Don

I was about to give up on match for a while…  Then I got a response from Samantha. After a few nice emails I asked if she wanted to meet for a drink. She agreed, but would not give me her phone number. So we met at local restaurant. We had a nice first meeting… my first impression was she was beautiful, sweet, caring woman. So, we made a second date. Read more…

Sarah & Dillen match success couple

Celebrating Veterans Day: Military Match Success Couple Sarah and Dillen

In honor of Veterans Day, we wanted to highlight an All-American military couple with plenty to celebrate themselves. Thank you for your service, Sarah, and Happy Veterans Day to all!

Jan 2012: I’m deployed to Afghanistan. I was on plan to ship home in a 1 week. So, I decided that I’d line up a date or two for when I returned. It would be just enough time to talk to someone, get to know them, and be ready to meet them when I got back. Before I even made a profile, I browsed the available guys. That’s when I noticed Dillen. That very same night, I made a profile and sent him a wink. That was the beginning of the rest of my life :-) For that week we talked every single day, sometimes for hours (Thank God for Skype!). Then we got some bad news. Plans changed. I’d be stuck in Afghanistan for another month. It seemed like the end of the world. We talked and emailed every day. Every day for 30 days. It was the oddest feeling…missing someone you’ve never even met. Read more…

Julie & Keith match.com success couple

Match Success Couple: Julie and Keith

I was instantly attracted to Keith when I saw his online profile. He was a teacher, just like myself and he seemed to portray a very positive outlook on life. After talking for a couple of weeks online, we decided to meet and we were hooked from that point on. We had endured many hard times together in the beginning and as we built our lives together but we always found a way to get through. Read more…
