When I started this journey I was hoping to meet someone who would be for me, my person. I tried to be specific about my preferences but I was also open. When I was matched, I was optimistic but nervous about who I’d be matched with. I honestly know that D is my person because a match like this can only happen once.

Out matchmaker listened, and so did we. After our first date I knew that he was my person and that I didn’t want to go on any other dates. This is not an easy task to accomplish. I’m 41 and this is the first time in my life that I feel equally matched.
