I had recently moved back to the Philadelphia area and had been on and off JDate for about a year when I met Eric. One Sunday night when I was feeling just a little lonely, I received an email notifying me that I had been “hotlisted.” I logged in to JDate to check it out and found that Eric had expressed interest in my profile. After chatting with him, I learned that he was brand new to JDate and I was the first person with whom he had chatted. We used the JDate chat feature and spoke online for about 45 minutes. We hit it off, exchanged email addresses, and made plans to meet the following week. Less than a year later, we were engaged!

Eric and I got married on September 29, 2012 and will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary this year. I still think my husband got off too easy (he only had to go on one JDate… come on!), but I’m so happy we found each other.
