“And I lucked out.” After more than a year with the service and meeting several people, Uli was matched with Gary.
A delightful phone conversation led to an in-person meeting, which went extremely well.
“I had visualized a sunset ceremony in a tropical location, and the vision came to be,” Uli observes.
And since they had decided to elope, they had two celebrations after their nuptials—one with Uli’s family in her native Germany and the other in the Midwest with Gary’s relatives.
In fact, he was meeting a friend to get the name of a divorce lawyer because his 16-year marriage was ending.
At the end of the evening, Gary wrote Perri’s number on the back of a Waffle House ticket and promised to call—even though he had not even thought about entering the dating scene again.
Today, with three years of marriage behind her, Uli happily encourages people over the age of 40 to turn to the help of a professional in their search for love.
In fact, she even founded her own Atlanta-based upscale matchmaking service, Sterling Introductions, which also has an office in New York City.
“I knew that one day I would want to be married again. And after three years of dating Perri exclusively, neither was Gary. Martin, he got down on one knee and presented his very surprised beloved with the Waffle House ticket he had written her name and number on the night they met.
“He told me I could change the last name on the ticket and keep the phone number,” she muses.
