It all started with the usual dating curiosity that some singles experience. I was conducting a search of my stake on ldssingles.com when I happened upon a rather familiar face. Up to this point she and I had never talked before or had even been introduced, it was more of the passing glances at stake activities that we had to work with. I of course initiated the conversation (trying to be the best gentleman I could) and told her that I wasn't trying to hit on her but I wanted to know if we had ever met before. She replied sometime later with a rather excited response that went something like, "no we haven't but I know who you are!" She then continued on to suggest an outing and then asked me ON A DATE! That was the point where the whole "gentleman" role was shot to heck, but don't worry I stayed strong and rolled with it. I liked the idea of the date and had another suggestion in mind that allowed us to get together one day sooner. She accepted!! We traded #'s and I was on my way to a first date with this lovely, beautiful, young lady to a MONSTER TRUCK RALLY!!! Yes people, everything that you have ever learned in YM/YW about first date locations and atmospheres is a load of poppycock. It didn't need to be romantic or fairytale for us to hit it off. From there it was an incredible journey. We are now married and are starting to build our forever family and I am not sure how it would've worked without the help of ldssingles.com. We went 21 years without even an aquaintance. Had I not found her on ldssingles, it could've been an eternity without her. Websites are ok for this kind of thing. My wife and I are happily married and have a wonderful life and eternity to look forward to. I wish you all the very best in your own ventures.
