Dear Gary and Deborah,
About a year ago I met a man on here and thought he was everything I ever wanted in a man and in a relationship. Yes I fell in love with him. He told me I was everything he had ever wanted in a woman. But in the last few months I found out that I wasn't everything he wanted. He loved all the qualities I had as a woman and best friend ( we had become best friends or so I thought ) except for one thing I am a size 12 and he wanted a woman that was a size 3 to show off in front of his friends and his ex wife. He is now dating her and has told me that he is in love with her. The problem is according to some of his friends and his Mother he is still not over his ex wife and they along with me believe that until he can put his ex wife in his past and learn to love himself he will not truly love anyone. I have moved on with my life as best I can right now. But I do still have strong feelings for this man. I do know that it is best for me to move forward and not to look back. Just a word of warning to other women. Make sure a man is over his ex wife and ready to move on to the future before you become too involved with them.
Dear Gary and Deborah,
Have met a wonderful man through your service-- we have been in communication with each other since December 28th, he is from Hawaii and I am from Canada, he is coming up here in one week to see me---- we have fallen in love over the net and phone!!!! did not believe it was possible!!! Thank you wonderful people for this service!
Just one more question!!! Our horoscope strengths are very positive and is just how we are--- The Challenges part is so unlike us--- and it says -- A stormy marriage??? How accurate are your Reports???? Should I really beware???? -- The challanges part seems so unlike us--- ???
We are really excited about meeting and we will let you know what happens------ In the meantime thank you --- we are just having a wonderful time getting to know each other-----
[ The Astrology reports come from another site (Matrix Software) and I can't vouch for their accuracy - Deborah ]
I just wanted to tell you that I tried your dating site and have met a wonderful man through it... and just wanted to say thank you;-)
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your extraordinary service. A while back, I sent a letter to a girl through here. Not that I expected anything, but she did write back. We've been emailing for a while as well as talking on the phone.
We finally met a little while back and are now planning to move in together as well as a wedding. This is one of the great things about the internet and a small service like this can bring people together for real. Again, thank you so much for making this page. We owe you more than you will ever know.
Thanks again for helping us find each other, it has completely changed our lives for the better!!
Subject: Making a request....
My husband and I met through your dating system a little over a year ago. We are very happy today. We are in the process of setting up a home page and would like permission to put a link to your site on it.
We would appreciate it very much.
Dear Gary & Deb,
I found your service on the net at the end of March, so I put my ad in. Well, on 3/29/98, a gentleman from Utah e-mailed me. The funny thing is we clicked in so many ways that I truly believe we have indeed found each other because of your service, and that it just may last a lifetime. I will keep you updated.
Thank you so very much for your terrific service, otherwise we would have never 'met', because I live in Connecticut. We plan to meet in Virginia or Connecticut within the next month. My best to you always and I'll be in touch again. Happy Easter!
I would just like to let you know that thanks to your system I met and married the most wonderful man I have ever known. Last year I posted an ad and received several matches. After screening all but one, I corresponded with him for some time and we finally decided to meet. We knew each other instantly and realized just as quickly this was our soul match. My husband and I have been married 4 months now and we grow closer everyday. After being alone for 15 years, it was hard to imagine living with anyone else, ever. Now I can't imagine life without him and he feels the same.
For anyone who is skeptical about this type of service, I hope they realize that, you can safely get to know someone in the ways it counts before actually having to meet face to face. You can learn a lot about a person from the things they communicate, if you pay attention closely. In this day and age, when you are not even assured of being safe in your own home, at least in this type of forum you do have some control over who you meet and how.
I hope everyone who uses this or similar forums is as lucky as I was.
Hi Gary and Deb my name is Jeffery R.
I joined your dating service quite some time ago. Since then I have had the pleasure of emailing several interesting females. Last week I got Email from Amy. I later talked to her on the phone and was very interested in her and what she was like. I was so interested that after talking to her for only six hours (not on the same day but within the same week) I decided that I had to meet this person for myself. I drove 446 miles one way from Ohio to PA to meet her.
What a pleasant surprise to find this attractive, intelligent young woman to meet. We spent the weekend together (no hanky panky). We talked a lot and I got to see a lot of interesting places. Now the only thing is the distance apart. I went through 11 yrs of a terrible marriage and after meeting this woman I feel like I have a new chance or beginning in my life.
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for providing this service.
P.S. This has to be one of the craziest thing I have ever done and I would do it again if I knew it would be only to meet Amy. Thank you and have a very nice day.
Just wanted to send a note to let you know that through your service we found one another. I was living in New Jersey and Gary was living in Arizona. The thought that we were soulmates was the last thing on our minds until . . . we connected through this service. Almost from the time we first chatted we both felt an incredible connection. We're just writing to let you know that we each believe we have found our soulmate. We're getting married a little over a year from the time we first met online. Thanks again.

Subject: A sucess story!
Dear Gary and Deborah;
We can't THANK YOU enough! Your service certainly worked for us. We met thru that all important first email on June 22, 1997 and started writing to each other. (Both of us had only been listed with you for 1-2 days when we connected!) Our letters became a story that each of us would continue - a fairy tale of sorts - it was about the Brave Knight and the Fair Maiden - two lonely and scared souls who were tentatively reaching out to find true love. Now the maiden has access to the inner keep of the Knight's castle and the Knight loves to swim alongside the Maiden in her enchanted pool. A rainbow of loving energy connects them and music can be heard all across the kingdom.
After our initial letters, we began speaking on the telephone and soon planned our first meeting. The maiden flew to the Knight that first, nervous time and ever since then, the Knight has made his weekend trek to her. We are most definitely in love and are getting married this New Year's eve!!!!!!
We wish you a very happy and loving holiday season and again, we send you our sincerest gratitude!
Stacey G. and Douglas P.
P.S. Both of us have forgotten our passwords and would like to be
removed from your listing (we don't need any more matches now!).
Subject: Delete my profile please
To whom it concerns,
I have met a wonderful man and would prefer to have my account erased from your data base. I really appreciate all the men I met off of your system and hope it makes everyone as happy as I!
Thank you sincerely,

Subject: True Love Wins
Back in June of 1997, while browsing your database, I took a chance and emailed a match that lived in my province.
Never in my wildest dreams would I have envisioned what has ensued. I had been quite hurt from past relationships and as a result, had been very cautious to not let myself get caught up and in a situation where I could be hurt again. However, upon meeting Dean, I felt a comfort zone from the beginning. Since then, we have moved in together and are planning our wedding for the spring of 98. Thanks for having the database so that I could find my Soul-Mate.
Best Wishes for all who use your database and may they find the happiness that we have found. Sincerely, Loa & Dean
Subject: HAPPILY EVER AFTER
Gary and Deborah,
Thank you so much for what you have done. About 7 months ago, I entered my profile into your system. About a week later, I got an e-mail from a wonderful guy from Australia. We knew from the very beginning that we were soulmates. Especially with all of the uncanny things that happened to us while we were corresponding.
It started with e-mail, then progressed to chatting in a room, then the telephone. Everyday, I might add. Well, we were just going insane without each other. We knew what each other looked like, because we had sent pictures by mail. He was just incredible. He is 6'4", has black hair, and beautiful green eyes. He is so adorable with his Australian accent, and is very very intelligent. He triple majored in sports psychology, sports medicine, and sports science at the University of Sydney.
He was just too good to be true. Well, maybe not. He is sitting right next to me now helping me compose this e-mail. After months of antagonizing separation, he flew here, Florida, to be with me. He came on July 3rd, and we had the most beautiful wedding of all time on August 30th. We are both so very happy. Thank you so much for bringing us together. We will always appreciate that.
Subject: Thank You!!!
Dear Gary and Deborah,
I just wanted to say thank you so very much for designing such a wonderfully professional service, and all at no cost to the people who use it!!! I initially used your service back in November '96 when I was looking to meet some pen friends. Thanks to you I met dozens of interesting and perfectly compatible people, but not only that, I actually met the man of my dreams.
The fact that I lived in Florida, USA, and he lived in Birmingham England was to say the least surprising. How else could we have met each other, but for you playing cupid? I'm happy to say that our love endured such unusual circumstances, and as soul mates we are now married and blissfully happy together.
Jenny & Paul
Gary & Deborah,
Just had to write a quick note of appreciation for how your generosity has again been fruitful and touched the lives of others. Last night I met someone more wonderful than I had ever hoped to meet. Our relationship would never have been possible except through the sacrifices you and Deborah have made.
Again, thank you! Job well done.
Gary and Deborah,
You can add one more couple to your list! Thanks to your service there are two less "lonely hearts" in this world.
Through your uncanny matchmaking abilities, I have found the most wonderful woman in the world, we corresponded through email for a few weeks, until we had the 'nerve' to meet in person. I drove to meet her and well, life has changed entirely since that time.
We hit it off as well in person as we did through email, and continue to do so. As a matter of fact, we are now engaged!! Yes! We've set a date in the spring to become man and wife.
I just wanted to thank you, because without you we would probably have never found each other.
-- Benny and Laraine
Thank you so much for removing the record that referred to my old e-mail account. So promptly!!!
I got an almost immediate response, which looks quite interesting. I am employed full time and take six hours of Master degree classes, am raising a daughter who is a high school senior, dance two or three times a week for exercise, and belong to a singles sailing club.
Having a few "pen-pals" on the side is delightful, since I don't really have the time to date right now. Things will be better when I graduate in December.
I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that I believe I have connected with the most wonderful man in the world! I met him through your service. I'm in California and he is in Pennsyvania. He is coming over here to see me the end of September. Thank you both so much.
Without the two of you there would never be the two of us.
Sandi and Gary
Dear Gary and Deborah,
I don't know how to express my appreciation. I have met the woman of my dreams and all because of your service. We have been in contact for just over one month now and have made wedding plans already.
This is happiest that I have ever been and it is all because you made it possible. Without your service I may have never found my soul mate. Thank you is not enough here.
I will let you know when the date is final, we intend to have a wedding on the internet where we met, and would like to let everyone know about your site.
Thank you again.
Thank You for having your service out there for all of us. My name is Fred T. With your help I have found my match. She is all I have ever wanted. I can never thank you enough.
All the Best
Dear Gary and Deborah,
We would like to thank you for your web page. We would just like to let you know that through your web page we met and after one year of dating, we are now officially engaged to be married. Thanks again!
I just want you guys to know that, on March 13, 1997, I received an email from a gentleman. We corresponded for one month and decided to meet face to face at a public place in a mutually chosen location.
Not only have we begun a friendship, the chemistry I have found lacking in other situations was also present here. We have been chatting, meeting and traveling together for almost 4 months now! I want to thank you for providing this service. I will certainly let you know as the relationship progresses.
Thank you again.
Subject: Glad I stopped by!!
Just a quick note to let you know that I met THE woman of my future in here! I have to cancel out becasue this worked better than I could ever have imagined!!! You have a nice concept - well executed, and very much appreciated! Thank you again for allowing me to use your database in my Ultimate search - I FOUND HER - here!!!!!
Best Regards to All Other Searchers:
Gary and Debbie,
After reading the testimonials, I don't feel "crazy" like so many of my friends think. I responded to a letter from a man in April and we've been writing ever since. I'm meeting him for the first time this weekend. He's already asked me to marry him and we've even decided to have a baby. Big step for me, since my daughter just graduated from high school and I never considered having any more children. I never thought that I would ever find anyone so wonderful.
All the people who laugh at Internet dating should give it a try. I agree with another person who recently wrote to you and and said that meeting on-line allowed her to get to know the real person inside. That is so true. You are also forced to really listen to the other person, since you can't interrupt an e-mail letter. Also, since you are not "going out" on dates, (movies, dinner, etc) you have nothing else to do but talk and get to know one another. I probably know more about this man in 6 weeks, than I knew about my ex-husband after 5 years of marriage. So tell all those skeptics out there not to knock it until they've tried it. Thank-you so much.
Hi - I just got to tell you that my friend found a match with your service. She and he started to correspond, than met and are now married (as of May 23, 1997)!
A happy ending!
Subject: I finally found "HIM"...
Dear Gary and Deborah,
I would like to thank you both for creating a positive forum for singles...I met a wonderful man who has never misrepresented himself or his intentions...he truly is "everything" I have ever dreamed of and more. I would also like to add that this is a very powerful tool for "communication" especially in the case of a couple such as ourselves, who live a good distance apart to convey their dreams and wishes without the tension of a face to face encounter.
I am so in LOVE with the soul of this man that how he appeared did not matter...you have allowed me to rise to a new level of loving which is based on the truth...the person/not the persona or outward appearance like I had been. I just spent the weekend with him...at his home and he spent time here only 3 days after we began writing with each other! As of TODAY...we have known one another for only two weeks and I honestly cannot fathom how we would have ever met without you two.
Finally, I have found a man that I can be honest and open...tough and feminine...intelligent and loving with who truly appreciates all that is me...the good, bad and even the ugly...
*X-X-X-O-O-O*...KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK...
Hi. My name is Judy E. and I signed onto your matching service a long time ago. This past March, I remembered that I was still in your database, and I checked the matches for my profile and responded to one, Gawaine B. in Missouri. We have been corresponding now since the first week of March and we have developed a wonderful realtionship. We are meeting in Akron, OH on May 16 and we are both very hopeful and very excited. He is already making plans to move to Ohio. He is, without a doubt, the most wonderful man I have ever met and our relationship is unfolding so beautifully. I believe that there is more to our meeting than just a web page, but it was through your service that we were brought together. I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for conceiving the idea and for all the work you and Gary put into managing it.
I will write again to let you know how the meeting turned out...but I just wanted you to know that I am so thankful for the opportunity to have met him. God bless you both!
Gary and Deborah,
Just a BIG NOTE OF THANKS for your service. My Soul Mate - Howard H. found me and we are so well matched for each other. He's north of San Francisco and I'm in SE Arizona, but we fit like two peas in a pod.
I'm flying up to see him this weekend and he'll be moving to AZ as soon as we can arrange it. He's a wonderful, kind, loving, gentle man WITH NO ADDITIONS. We are both affectionate LEOs and have almost 100% common interests. We want to share, love, travel, and do everything together. We are soul mates for sure, and we just want to THANK YOU. THANKS, THANKS again. It's a miracle to be so happy!
All our Love,
Gary and Deborah,
I think you may have made me as happy as you guys seem to be. I met someone on your sevice. Thanks to you!
Dear Gary and Deborah,
We used your service in June 1996, met in August, and were married last Thursday, April 3rd. We just had to let you know and say thanks a lot. You have helped us make our dreams come true.
- Ella and William
I just wanted to drop you all a note and let you know how sucessful I have been using the Service. I have met a lady through your service and now I am going to get married to her on April 18th.
We met here on the system in December and met in person In January. Keep up the good high quality work. We will forever be indebted to your service.
Happy & Paul Q
I would like to thank you for having such a great service. I met the love of my life due to your dating service. I live in Iowa and he lives in Miami for right now. I went down and met him and his family a week ago and he was everything that he said he was. He is coming up here next month to meet my family. We are soulmates and have never been happier. Thanks for having such a wonderful service.
Dear Gary and Deborah,
This is just a quick note to let you know that some people DO actually find the person of their dreams on the "net".
About two months ago I set up a profile on your matchmaking service and also checked for matches for any ladies out there who fit my "criteria". Of all the potential matches there was only one in my geographic area. Her name is Cathy and she and I corresponded for about two months before recently meeting each other in person.
All I can say is that she is everything I have been searching for and we found that we had many things in common. Since then we are just getting closer and closer. She has brought a great deal of happiness to my life and I look forward to a long and mutually happy relationship !
Just wanted to let you know that we owe our getting togather to your web site and that you can count us as one of your "success stories" !!
Many thanks for providing the opportunity for us to meet each other ! This Prince has finally found his Princess !! Thanks Again !
Dear Gary and Deborah,
I joined your dating database last year and didn't really use it very much since the people I was matched up with were all out of state. In January I received a message from a man named Sean who was matched up with me. I was the only woman listed in his area, New Hampshire.
Well, I replied to his e-mail and we became good "e-mail pals." Well come to find out we had a mutual friend who said we were perfect for each other and should meet...it took us 2 months to meet, after a lot phone calls we already felt like great friends and we hit it off.
It seems we've found the perfect person we have both been searching for. Although we have a mutual friend, we don't believe that we would have met without your help. So, we wanted to say "thanks"
One more thing...he is 6'5 and I am 5'0 and that is about our only big difference! We both have young sons who got along as well as we did from Day One. We both decided last night to try and send an e-mail to the both of you and tell you this story of Princess Petite and the Prince of Tallness!
Hi Gary and Deborah!
My name is Adam. I would like to thank you in person for helping meet my soulmate! Her name is Christine S. She lives in England, whereas I live in Kansas. (USA) We have been communicating every day for the last six months and we call each other every Friday.
In addition to sending each other E-mail we also send each other photos and audio tapes. We have built a sucessful RELATIONSHIP! Which in my opinion is the BEST kind, because getting to know each other through letters and such, we have nothing to hide! PLUS! We know that our relationship has not been based on ANYTHING other than what lies in our heart for the other.
She is going to make it over to see me in May of this year. Things have been working out SO well in fact, that I think she might stay! Christine has become the spark in my life!
Thank you again for just EXISTING!
I just wanted to tell you that I love you system! I met my boyfriend on this dating match site and we are very much in love!!! Thank you soooo much!
Dear Gary and Deborah,
Just a short note to inform you of our successful relationship that is a result of meeting on your service. She said "yes" on New Year's Eve at midnight at the Marriot here. It is a match truly made in heaven. We are planning a June '97 marriage.
We thank you both for your wonderful service.
I have been regularly corresponding with someone in the UK who I think is truly one of the sweetest men I have ever met.
I think I've lost it! Because the distance doesn't mean a thing to me except that I need to figure out a way to get him here or go there. I am so happy!!! :) I can't thank you enough.
I have to tell you I met a wonderful gentleman through your service. We are planning on being married soon.. You provide an excellent way to meet someone for those of us that are busy with ten thousand other things!!
-- Faye H.
Hello, Gary and Deborah,
I have met several wonderful men through your service, and wish you happiness and prosperity always.
-- Amanda A.
Dear Gary, and Deborah too:
I just want to thank both of you for providing the service you do to help people meet.
Through your computer matching, I have built up a very strong and loving relationship with one of the women you matched me with.
This wonderful lady and I have so much in common, have covered so much ground in getting to know one another, and have become so caring and involved with each other, that although there is some physical distance between us, we've begun having phone conversations, and are planning to meet in the near future.
This would not have happened without the two of you. Thank you so much.

Subject: Love at First Byte!!
Dear Gary & Deborah,
When I signed on to your service, I really didn't expect to find the love of my life, but I think I have. H__ & I matched just about 4 weeks ago.
Last week he flew me to Las Vegas (where he lives), and I've been here since. He's asked me to move in with him. It's all moved rather quickly, but somehow he & I connected and our relationship has been growing by leaps and bounds.
I consider this a grand adventure and I'm so glad your service was on-line. I wish everyone could be this lucky, I feel like I've won the big Jackpot!
Thanks from both of us,
Dear Gary and Deborah,
I met a man from Arcadia Florida, by the name of Robert S., on your services. We wrote back and forth for several months. He came to Kansas the end of September. We at that time fell very much in love. He moved here on October 26th. He had in his ad that he was a divorced. We matched up very nice. After he moved here, I received a phone call from his WIFE. The man had lied and was still married.
We were making plans for a beautiful wedding only to have this to crush my life. I know that this is not the end of everything, but I would like to express my experience with other women and men to be sure to have these people checked out. Not everyone you meet will tell you the truth. Yes, many will be honest but there are those who are not. This man is an abusive person, he has been a drug user and will smoke a joint at the drop of a hat. He lies and I am NOT the first one he has done this to. His wife has given me the name of the other woman that he did this way also.
After I had found the truth out, I asked him to leave my home. I have been hurt, devastated, embarrassed. Please be careful with whom you are corresponding with. You might end up with a child molester, an ax murderer. You might not be as lucky as I was...
Thank you for allowing me to express my feelings.
-- Jo M
[ Jo's unfortunate experience is a warning to us all to be careful with any relationship, whether initiated on the Internet, a bar or even the supermarket. The man that Jo matched up with emailed us a month earlier and the note is printed below. ]
Dear Deborah and Gary,
I want to thank you for creating your computer match program and putting it on the Net (for free yet!).
I have met a wonderful man through your program and things are progressing very nicely. While he lives in a neighboring state, we have spent all of part of the each of the last ten weekends together -- including a 3-night cruise in the Caribbean.
I have also developed a great friendship with another "match" who gives me the male view on how to handle my new relationship in exchange for my female view on his romantic life.
Unfortunately, I've had to delete my record from your database since I don't have the time to respond to all of the great people who are contacting me as a result of your program.
You provide a wonderful service, particularly to older women (I'm 47) who have been led to believe that they will never meet any eligible men!
A thousand Thank You's to you both!
-- Marti S
Gary & Deb,
Thanks so very much..after adding and then deleting my information three times, I left it in the datingbase on 18 September. On the 21st of September, I received a response.
We begin to e-mail and have had three face to face meetings. I never believed in love at first sight or e-mail for that matter. I do now. We will e-mail you an invitation to the wedding!
To anyone that is considering adding their name... Just do it!
Thanks to your page, I met a wonderful Canadian girl and since July we Email many times a week and have become close friends by now. I'm French and though it's not easy, I think we'll meet each other one day.
I just wanted to tell you how happy I am to know her, and how much I support and thank you warmly for your great job.
My best regards to Deborah :)
I just want to say thankx. Because of you I met a young lady and we have fallen very much in love.
We talked for several months and have met. I live in Florida and she lives in Kansas. I will be moving there on Oct 25 and we are going to be married the end of Nov. Please keep up the good work, because for us it did work. Again thank you.
-- Bob S.
[ See the message (above) we received from Bob's match in early November for a surprising update and a warning to everybody to be wary! ]
I enjoyed your dating page.....however my wife does not allow me to date She says she does not want me disappointing another woman. Each time I ask her what she means, she just starts muttering something about her burden to bear for the sisterhood........I never can get a straight answer. She does tell me, after 24 years of marriage, I'm out of practice and to get back to cleaning the kitchen.
At any rate enjoyed your site.
