Lasting Love through Chemistry: Jay and Stacie Diamond Share the Story that Led Them to the Alter

We had an instant connection and so much to talk about. It was incredible.

What seemed to be the biggest set-back in Jay Diamond’s life turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Following the devastation brought on by Hurricane Katrina, Diamond, a New Orleans resident, didn’t know what the future held in store for him. Left with nothing, he headed east to move in with family in New Jersey. It was there that his entire life would change.

“I was still single and miserable in my career,” Diamond said. “I knew that this move was a second chance, and I wasn’t going to miss it.”

Eager to meet new people, Jay decided to join, the fastest-growing relationship site on the Web. After taking the Chemistry profile, Jay learned that he was a “Negotiator/Explorer,” and he was sent five matches – the first being, Stacie Stuart, a “Director/Negotiator” and a school teacher from Howard Beach, N.Y.

Following’s guided 1-2-3 Meet™ approach, Jay and Stacie exchanged emails and soon they spoke on the phone.

“We spoke every night for hours on the phone and it was so amazing,” Stuart said. “We had an instant connection and so much to talk about. It was incredible.”

Both Jay and Stacie knew they were compatible, but Jay was anxious to find out if the chemistry they had on the phone would translate into real-life chemistry.

The two decided to meet in person, which confirmed what they had felt for each other over the phone. Their relationship quickly flourished, and soon they were off to the Bahamas for what appeared to be just a vacation. But Jay had a little more than a vacation in mind.

During a talent show at their resort, Jay got up on stage and asked Stacie to marry him. “I was stunned. It honestly felt like a fairytale. It took me a few seconds, but of course I said yes,” recalls Stuart.

But Jay wasn’t finished with the surprises. He let her know that he had planned an entire wedding for the next day – even making arrangements for hair and makeup. “I started calling everyone to tell them we were getting married. When they asked when, I said, ‘in six hours!’”

Jay and Stacie now live in Queens, N.Y., and have made a new family with their three children from previous relationships. They held a second ceremony on Saturday, June 17 in New York for their close friends and family.
