Julie & Keith 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…

Courtney & Josh success couple

Match Success Couple: Courtney and Josh

Josh and I messaged for an evening and texted for two days before exchanging phone numbers and making plans to meet.  I was really nervous because my last few relationships had ended horribly and I was still hurting. I had only joined at the urging of some close friends. I thought he was cute the second I saw him, and we didn’t stop talking until the rain made us. Read more…

Cristi & Michael ID 37591

Match Success Couple: Cristi & Michael

Michael will always say that I winked at him first, but that’s up for debate. We found each other through our love of our dogs. He had a Husky and I had a Chiweenie. In fact, his tag line was “My best friend is my Husky Bubba!” What animal-loving woman wouldn’t wink at that? We started e-mailing and then eventually exchanged phone numbers and the relationship heightened to texting. He finally had the nerve to meet up on June 11 at the San Diego County Fair. He had never been, and I was a pro at the fair so I knew this would be the perfect place for us to meet. Read more…

Raphael & Brittney

Match Success Couple: Raphael and Brittney

Well, like most online stories it starts with a little skepticism. I did not know anything about online dating and figured it wouldn’t work. Low and behold my first month with match I found the love of my life, who is now my fiance. It started January 2014 with her messaging me “you look familiar.” Looking at her profile she did look familiar. Read more…

Amy & Geoff Success Couple

Match Success Couple: Amy and Geoff

Geoff, an online dating newbie, joined in the summer of 2012. Amy, a vet, had just re-joined the site to spice things up for the summer. One random July day, Amy came across Geoff’s profile. Not only was she drawn to his uncanny resemblance to Brad Pitt, but she also loved the fact that his profile lacked shirtless selfies. After a few witty email exchanges (or at least attempts), the two met for dinner at Sunda, an Asian-fusion restaurant downtown. Read more…
