Real-Life Online Dating Success Stories

By Denise Schipani

Time was, if you met your mate online, you developed a cover story: If anyone asked, you’d say you met in a bar or at kayaking lessons. Not anymore. Whether it’s the fact that many of us already conduct so much of our personal and business lives online, or the proliferation of online dating sites touting their successful matches, it’s perfectly acceptable to say, with pride, that you met the love of your life with your fingers on a keyboard, not wrapped around a cocktail at a singles event. Here, five women who found their mate (or were found) online, and went from email to walking down the aisle:

Anna & Sam Abma, Wycoff, New Jersey

A divorced mother, Anna, 46, looked into the future and saw a time when her kids wouldn’t need her around quite as much—and she’d end up alone. Joining eHarmony, which matches couples based on a detailed personality questionnaire, says Anna, “was my backup in case I didn’t meet anyone the ‘regular’ way.” It took six months of being matched with other eHarmony members before she met Sam. “His profile struck a chord—he was very spiritual, for one thing, which was important to me.” Those other matches had interested her, but fizzled once they got past initial communication. Not so with Sam—whom she agreed to make a date with after six weeks of emails and hour-long phone calls. The reality rattled her. “I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, this is a real man, not just an email!’” Panicked, she put the brakes on. For all of a week! Six months later, Anna and Sam were engaged; they got married in April 2010.
Lesson learned: Keep expectations low; it can take a while to find a match. Even with a system like eHarmony, whose detailed matching process saved her from “kissing a lot of frogs, ” you still have to feel that chemistry.

True To Some Extent, But

I think as many people become older they are transformed into readers, that we have a new crop of readers every day. This is why McDonalds is so popular. They have both the kids and the oldsters coming online every day as new, replenishable customers. I agree the younger people are not going to read books, but one can only take so many exploding car chases and space cowboys in a lifetime. They will be there as readers some time after age forty. The one thing about books is, they're cheap compared to some of the electronic gizmos. One can take a book with them on a plane, cruise ship or to the beach
