I had been on LDSSO for about 2 yrs and had dated quite a bit during that time. I have been in quite a few relationships, been to several relationship seminars and talked to so many people for advice and how not to make the same mistakes I had in my first marriage. Needless to say I was pretty picky. Not in looks or anything like that I just wanted to find somebody who would treat me how I deserved to be treated. I was looking for somebody who was strong in the church, loved me and felt lucky to be with me, and loved my kids like his own. Well, I found him!
He was also looking for the same things as me and had been down a similar road. We were both ready to settle down and have a happy life.
He noticed my profile first but I had a message on there saying I was involved with somebody at the time so he didn't do anything. When that didn't work out he checked out my profile again a couple months later and still didn't do anything but I saw that he had checked out my profile so I checked out his and liked what I saw. :) I sent him a flirt and he quickly responded and took the lead from there. We chatted and messaged each other for a couple weeks. Then he finally got the nerve to ask for my phone number when we were chatting one evening and said he would call me the next night. Two minutes later my phone rang and it was him. He said he could't wait a whole day to hear my voice. How sweet is that? He called me the next evening and we talked for hours. That went on for a couple weeks then we finally talked about actually meeting. We both have kids. I have two little girls and he has a son and daughter. We had then on opposite nights so it was almost impossible to find a time to meet. We ended up doing something that could have been a mistake but ended up being the best thing ever. We all met each other at the same time, all six of us. We decided to go to a baseball game with all the kids. I was so nervous to meet him but the moment I opened the door and saw him standing there with his two kids I knew this was something special. After that evening we were together every day. We live about 30 miles apart so we took turns on which end of the valley we would be in. The kids were with us most of the time which is sometimes a good thing hee hee. He proposed on July 4th as we were looking up at the sky and watching the amazing fireworks. His kids were in on the whole thing which I thought was really cute! We have been married for a little over a month now and I never thought I could be this happy. Our kids get along so well and we are all just very happy! Our first conversation online we talked about the movie hitched and now we are hitched. lol
