Dawn & Keith in Norfolk, VA
After getting “matched” by eHarmony, Dawn and Keith decided to meet for an informal date at Starbucks. They talked for hours and, two days later, Keith asked Dawn out for an official date. They continued to date for more than two years before Keith popped the question.

The Date June 6
During a long weekend, the couple planned a historic tour of Gettysburg. They came upon a plaque near a bullet hole at the Jennie Wade House. “It said if an unwed woman put her left ring finger through the hole she would receive a proposal within a year,” says Dawn. Keith told her to do it and later, during a candlelight dinner, he proposed!
