New York, NY

Separately, Jessica and Cecile decided to give Match.com a try for just a month. The lucky couple first connected on the dating website—and their first date lasted more than 10 hours. They’ve now been together for almost a year, and are embarking on an expedition to Indonesia later this year to satisfy their mutual love of travel. When not jet-setting around the globe, Paducah, Ky. native Jessica loves music, scarves, Chapstick, carbs and running; Cecile, originally from Miami, indulges in Scrabble, wine, volunteering and Meg Ryan rom-coms. Cecile credits shared values as the key to togetherness. “Jessica is a sweet, polite Southern belle residing in Sunnyside, Queens and I'm a fiery Cuban living in Manhattan, but we couldn't be any more compatible,” she says. “We both value family, friends, culture and growth as individuals and as a couple.” That, and they’re “madly in love with each other.” That helps too.
