After dating for three years, Whitson married his online dating sweetheart in the summer of 2015. In 2009, Peter considered shutting down his e Harmony account and giving up on online dating entirely. She answered his messages, and they knew there was something there.

So, I started giving would-be suitors polite and brief answers before explaining that I wouldn’t be striding off into the sunset with them. He argued, flattered, and begged in a barrage of messages that barely paused for my responses. One single woman was on Ok Cupid when her online crush suggested cam sex.
“I heard the tiny ding of the notification on my phone when I realized he’d responded back, and positively, even enthusiastically,” Sona recalled in an interview with She Knows.

They got married on March 14, 2015 (aka Pi Day) and love to tell people that it was love at first click.
