John Meriggiís Success Story.

In his twenties, John Meriggi enjoyed the life of being a bachelor. He was single, college educated, and enjoyed all of what life had to offer. When he hit his thirties, he felt ready to settle down and begin making more dreams come true. He enjoyed dating, but felt it was time to settle down and find someone special to share lifeís adventures with. He was unsure about matchmaking services or personal ads, so in 1983 he decided to join GREAT EXPECTATIONS.

After he joined GREAT EXPECTATIONS, someone at the center recommended that he select another member, Cheryl. He reviewed Cherylís profile and found that they had very similar interests, including sailing. John ended up selecting Cheryl and she agreed to meet John. They had an incredibly nice lunch date and found they had more in common than just sailing. Unfortunately though, Cheryl had already began seeing another GE member so when John tried to follow up with another date, she graciously turned him down, which disappointed John tremendously.

John continued to utilize his GREAT EXPECTATIONS membership. About one year later, he was at the center and heard that Cheryl had just left. Apparently she was unhappy in her current relationship. This was fantastic news for John. He decided to contact Cheryl. They met for happy hour, dancing, and a nightcap at Johnís so he could show her his home. It turned out to be a remarkable evening, so John asked if she would be interested in helping a friend of his sail his boat back from Corpus Christi to Houston. Cheryl took John up on his offer and they enjoyed each others company while in the dinghy that was being towed behind his friendís sailboat. They spent several hours that afternoon in the dinghy, with a beautiful sunset as their backdrop, and from that point forward they were inseparable. Six months later John proposed to Cheryl.

John and Cheryl were married in the fall of 1986 and have two beautiful daughters. Because of GREAT EXPECTATIONS, John found his soul mate. He believed so much in the program that he recommended it to all of his family, friends, and anyone else who asked how he met his wonderful wife. John went even further than just recommending the service, in 1990 he purchased a franchise and co-opened an office in Dallas. He invested everything he had because he truly believed that GREAT EXPECTATIONS was partially responsible for his own happiness and was determined to give other singles a chance to find that same happiness. His success as a member propelled him into a huge success with GREAT EXPECATIONS. Today he is the largest franchise owner in the country. His centers include Dallas, Cleveland, Phoenix, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, Chicago, Schaumburg, Indianapolis, Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, Columbus, Milwaukee, Orlando, and Jacksonville.
