Success Stories: 2001
Greetings Dear Friends at LDS,
I wanted to send a sincere message of THANKS for my new wife and
I concerning your website. For it was through this medium we found each
other, and married on Monday August 20th.
I am one of the 'old' timers of the LDS website (JCL & Sleepless_in_Seattle),
and my wife 'Julie-PCT' was new to the site. I have met many wonderful
people on this website even though as it has grown from 7500 when I first joined
to the many thousands it now has, the site has maintained intergrity. I never gave
up because I knew 'somewhere out there' was my special companion.
My wife and I have now combined families and have seven children in all.
We are truly in love and happy in life, all thanks to your site. And the abilitiy
it provides to find 'that special someone'.
Many happy returns, and many thanks
Hi, my name is Equinelover. I have been on your site since around the first of May 2001. On May 18th, I
started corresponding with Classycountryboy. We e-mailed each other for about a month before we finally
met on 6-11-01. We hardly left each others side from that point on. Things progressed quite rapidly, and
I'm happy to say that I will be cancelling my subscription to your site because we were married on 8-18-01,
only 3 months after we first "met". Your site is a great way to meet people. I hate to think that he and I may
have never met each other if it weren't for LDSSO. I hope everyone else out there has the same opportunity
to meet that special someone who completes their life the way we did. Thanks for creating an environment
that enables LDS singles to mingle with those who share the same basic beliefs.
Tabaluga and Wookenpanub met on LDSSO in March. We met in person in April
and have decided to merge our two families on August 16, 2001!
We have both been widowed and would never have found each other without the
Internet and LDSSO. We have a great friendship and are in love. Which is
good since together we have 7 children, including 3 eight year olds!!!
Thank you LDSSO for the forum to meet great people of the same religion and
goals in life!
A date to remember...February 8, 2001...
This was the beginning of our love story here on earth...
Marc Stephan Garrison and Paula Trinity Tripp....marcstephen and makemesmile
will be married on October 27, 2001 in the Detroit, Michigan Temple.
LdsSingles and the wonderful tool of our modern times the internet brought
us together again!
We immediately felt an incredible strong connection that transcended the
thousands of miles between us and your site was the dating "arena" for our
We had our own "chat" room, Puss och Kram...
We emailed for hours and hours and then spent countless hours speaking by
phone. On July 7, almost five months to the day we were engaged to be
One of my all time favorite tunes from Chicago...BEGINNINGS says it so
ONLY THE BEGINNING OF WHAT I WANT TO FEEL FOREVER...ROCK ON! LDSSO!
My husband and I met on your site in October 1999. At the time I was living
in Southern California and he was living in Oregon. Lloyd flew down to meet
me in January 2000, and we had a wonderful time together going to Disneyland
and Universal Studios. For the next seven months we spent a lot of time
talking on the phone and flying back and forth. I moved up to Oregon in
June 2000, and we were married in the Portland Oregon Temple on May 12,
2001. I am so happy that Lloyd is my best friend and eternal companion. I
am also grateful that Heavenly Father provided a way for Lloyd and I to meet
through your site.
You got it! The former NVR2L862, Terry Morrill, is getting married on
Saturday the 28th of July to Brightstar, Joel Gurr in the Mt. Timpanogas
temple. It can happen! We met on your site in November 2000, started
dating in January, and the rest is wonderful history :) Thank you! I know
we never would have met any other way.
I joined L.D.S.S.O. back in March 2000, and quickly found many new and wonderful friends. I dated a few nice guys from the site, and have
friends that stretch all over the globe now. I moved to California, and renewed my membership with L.D.S.S.O. I decided a short time ago to not
renew my subscription and to see how the dating world would be again.... I guess I was wrong.... Stephen (BYUALUMNI) and I
(SUNNYDAZE), met online after Stephen was only online with L.D.S.S.O. for a little over a week. The first message sent, was the beginning of
something so completely wonderful. I would like to take a few minutes to share it with you. After the first message sent, we began to chat, and
quickly learned that we definitely had many similar interests. We began calling one another, and knew that the feelings growing between us
were definitely more than friendship. We quickly agreed to meet. I flew to Phoenix on July 13, 2001 to see Stephen, and as the plane was
pulling into the terminal, I could see this tall beautiful man, staring through the glass. My heart jumped. I couldn't get off the plane fast enough.
As I stepped off the plane and into the airport, I could see Stephen's huge smile, and beautiful blue eyes...not to mention it's hard to miss a guy
that is 6'6". He had in his hand a beautiful sterling rose, and I had for him a Winnie the Pooh. We kissed in the airport, and I knew my heart
found where it belonged. We spent the weekend talking, and learning about one another, we even went to a singles dance in Mesa Arizona.
There we danced as if we were the only two people in the room, we were caught up in the moment. He took me home to introduce me to his
family, which I completely loved and adored from the moment we met. He even set up an appointment for portraits of us together at his
mother's studio. Sunday July 15, 2001 was very special to me. Stephen took me to church, and then we had family dinner. After dinner,
Stephen took me to the Mesa Arizona temple so that I could get pictures at night. As we entered the grounds, my stomach got a little nervous.
I didn't know why. I mean I have been on temple grounds before. He walked me over to the large cork tree, and there, he asked me to be his
wife. He asked me to spend eternity with him. I looked up at him with tears in my eyes and said, "Yes." We will be married in Mesa on
December 12, 2001. We know that Heavenly Father had the complete hand in our meeting. We would like to thank L.D.S.S.O. for giving us the
way, so that SUNNYDAZE and BYUALUMNI could find one another. I never thought that I would get to write the ending to my fairytale. I
never knew I could love someone so much and so complete, until now. Thank you for finding me Stephen, you are my prince.
On June 23, 2001, after 9 1/2 months of dating and several hundred miles worth
of airline trips, razataz67 (Dave) and Sun (Tammy) were sealed in the
Bountiful Utah Temple. We met through this service and emailed back and forth
for about a month before actually meeting face-to-face. Our first date, which
was a lunch date, ended up being 11 1/2 hours long. Needless to say, we hit
it off incredibly well. This site offers a fun and enjoyable environment in
which to meet and make new friends and for those of us extra lucky ones... to
find their eternal companion. We are both incredibly happy and thankful for
the opportunity we had to meet each other through this site. We both liked
the honesty/integrity that this site portrayed vs other single sites. The
fact that it's LDS based and tries to maintain those high standards was an
added bonus as well. For all of you out there reading this "success story"...
just remember, the Lord works in mysterious ways. Everything is on His time
frame and not ours. We need to be patient and happy with ourselves and we
need to be activily involved in becoming the best person we possibly can so
that when the Lord opens certain doors for us we are ready for what is
awaiting us. Best of luck to all of you in whatever you're looking for. May
you find the joy and happiness that we found. Be yourself, enjoy life, and
remember who you are and why you're here.
P.S. One last word of advice, it's better to aim for the stars and miss than
to aim for the pile of manure and make it.
Thanks to a friend of mine I discovered your site. After doing a search, 5 names came up and one of them was Joekidd. Right away, I fell head
over heels for him. I needed to join your service so that I could send him an email. Needless to say, we hit it off with out a hitch. We've hit it off
so well that we will be getting sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple in October. I never thought that I could meet the man of my dreams from the
internet...but I was wrong. Thanks to you I have. You have a great service. Thanks for everything. :o)
