Couple Celebrates 10 Years After Meeting On eHarmony

Couple Celebrates 10 Years After Meeting On eHarmony
John and Sue Mogen

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Love is in the air - and online. It's more popular than ever to start a relationship through the worldwide web.

eHarmony touts an average of 438 singles marry a match who connected through the online dating site EVERY DAY.

With the touch of a keyboard and a click of a mouse, you can be on your way to finding true love. That’s exactly what happened to John and Sue Mogen.

"He's pretty dang good looking. And he brought me a loaf of bread when we met the first time," Sue said.

"She's just my treasure; she's just wonderful," John said.

Years after his divorce, the father of three took a friend's advice and started a profile on eHarmony.com.

He quickly got matched up with Sue, whose husband died years before. Back then, it was still taboo to look for love online.

"Internet dating. It's just too crazy," Sue said.

They met for the first time at a Downtown Sioux Falls restaurant. Sue admits to being a little nervous.

"I can't do this. This is the stupidest thing I have ever done. I can't do this. What if he's a serial killer," Sue said.

Within the year, they were married.

"I just got to know her from the inside out and that's a cool deal," John said.

That was in 2004. This year John and Sue will celebrate their 10 year anniversary. 

They now spend their time doting on their two grandchildren. It's a marriage that wouldn't have happened without the help of an online dating site.

And now they give advice to anyone else looking for love online.

"Ask all the hard questions when it's still kind of anonymous. Get all those hard topics out of the way and then you don't have those uncomfortable conversations later," Sue said.
