Elisa and Steven

Dear JDate,

cont-mt-elisa-stevenMy name is Elisa, and I would like to tell you about our “happy ending.”

In January of 2004, I received an email from a JDater, Steven. At the time, I was living in Tucson, Arizona, and he lived in Orange County, California. A phone and email relationship began.

In early February, we decided to meet face-to-face and arranged a meeting in Phoenix. He drove in from California, and I drove up from Tucson. We hit it off and decided to give this long-distance relationship a shot.

After a few months, I moved out to Orange County. Eight months after being together, on Thanksgiving Day 2004, Steven proposed to me in front of 35 people — both of our entire families!! Everybody there was in on the surprise — parents, aunts, uncles, siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews, etc. It was wonderful, and I was so surprised!

We were married in Tucson on October 8, 2005. We just wanted to share our story and thank you for bringing us together.

Again, thank you so much!

Elisa & Steven
Tucson, Arizona and Santa Ana, California
