Meet Allen and Diana

I signed up to Match.com after returning home from a frustrating and disappointing date. I never really believed people could find love on dating sites, so I was surprised when I found Diana. At first, we talked for hours via Match.com chat, and then, after a few days we decided to meet. Now, just a year and a half later, she said "Yes".

Meet Jeremy and Meg

If someone had told me that within two years I'll be telling our story to others, I would think they were laughing at me or that they were crazy. Without EliteSingles, I could have never met Jeremy, I thank them for that, and I thank myself for finding the courage to sign up.
