Success Stories: 2009
Believe it or not, less than 24 hours after I posted my profile, I was contacted by the most amazing woman I've ever met. We are now dating and have plans to meet, and take things slow getting to know each other. We have already had intense spiritual experiences together. I have learned that if you allow the spirit to guide your heart, that incredible things can happen.
It all started with a "hi" sent to me by a really cute girl, stephipoo26. That simple beginning sparked a relationship that has just continued to grow and flourish. At first, we chatted and messaged each other through the website, until one fateful Sunday afternoon which we spent 5 hours of chatting before deciding to exchange phone numbers. We then spent another 3 hours talking to each other on the telephone.
Ever since that Sunday we have spent several hours every day talking to each other on the phone and growing closer together even though we are separated, for now, by 300 miles. Our relationship has continued to grow and we are now engaged to be married in the early spring of 2010. This site has been such a blessing for us as it allowed us to meet, which probably would not have happened otherwise.
I didn't think I was going find anyone on here, but on October 16th 2009 I sent a flirt to scorpioal. Well to my surprise he sent me one back the next day. Since that day we have been chatting and sending flirts. One Sunday after church we have been chatting online for about 5 hours, and then decided to exchange phone numbers, and so we ended up chatting on the phone for about 4 hours. Since then we have been talking on the phone, and I got a web-cam, so we can talk and see each other face to face. He is coming here December 26th - January 2nd to help me plan our wedding. We plan on getting married in the spring sometime. I am so glad I found the one that I am going to marry. He makes me so happy. Thank you for the site. I didn't think online dating works, but it does.

Adam and I have been happily married for almost 3 months. We were married in the Jordan River Temple. There were a lot of family and friends to celebrate with us. With us doing a long distance engagement we had to make the decision on where to live. We went back and forth on if I should move to Utah, or if Adam should move to Las Vegas, but in the end we both decided that I would move to Utah. The engagement was a trial for us, because Adam was living in Utah, and I was living in Las Vegas. My family was not very supportive of us getting married in April, because they felt it it was to soon, but we always knew that it was the best decision, so we married in April. During the engagement we did whatever we could to see each other. I would fly and see him, and those were the best moments, but the worst moments was when I (or he) would have to leave. I never thought that I would have met such an amazing person on an LDS dating website, but I did, and we are very happy. We are now living in Murray UT in an apartment, and are enjoying the independence. One year ago I never thought of being married, but I am so happy. Every time I see Adam I smile, and there is not one day that goes by that we don't say "I love you". Thank you again for your website, and for bringing this wonderful man into my life.
He flew half-way across the country to propose. We met on LDSSingles over the summer and fell in love. I am so thankful to have found my soul mate who is there for me. His long emails and phone calls have filled my heart with love. He has a wonderful, loving family with all of the same beliefs and moral values I have! We are getting married next month in the Bountiful Temple of the Lord. Thank you for providing a valuable service that connects people who live far apart!

I met the woman I'm going to marry on here and all it took was a hi flirt from her. I don't know if it was this site or if it was meant to be, but I do know that Heavenly Father knows us individually and that he answers prayers. I prayed for an eternal companion. Someone to share my life with and take away the lonely feeling I went home to every day. For two years I prayed and just when I was ready to give up, Irene said "Hi!" I am in the Army and I met Irene while in Iraq and LDSSingles helped us to form a relationship and helped us to see beyond the physical needs and desires that get in the way so often. Because of the time we have spent getting to know each other, our hearts speak the same language and I know we will be together forever.
I had been on the site for over a year he joined just a while ago. I was the first profile he found--the rest is history!!
I had planned a trip to Brazil to visit a good friend of mine in November. While I was on line I noticed a cute girl on line from Brazil so I IM'd her. She lives far from where I would be visiting, but ironically she was coming to Highland, Utah this Summer to stay with her uncle and his family. Her family in Utah had put her profile on LDS Singles. They live only 5 minutes from my house. We talked on line a few times and decided to meet. It was an amazing first date that lasted 4 hours. We decided to see each other everyday until she returned home in a month. By the end of her time we had just experienced the best month of our lives. We talked over web cam for the next two months almost everyday. She decided to return to Utah prior to my trip to Brazil in November. We spent five weeks together in Utah. I am now on my way to Brazil to meet her family. We are planning to be married in Feburary in Utah. She is moving her permanetly after Christmas. She is my dream girl! I wish everyone this kind of a love story.
Really, I don't know what to say. I didn't have much faith that I would meet my eternal companion on here. I thought the best that I could hope for was to meet some great people and build a few lasting friendships. I saw Jacob's profile and sent him a "hi" flirt. He wrote me a quick note thanking me for the flirt and how we got from "Hi" to engaged is really a mystery to me. It was so natural and almost too easy. I love him and look forward to merging our two families into one. The best advice I can give those of you still seeking lasting relationships is to have fun and be yourself. Don't hide anything...it will happen when it happens. I love you Jacob. I can't wait to be your wife.
I met the most beautiful woman on LDSSingles. We started talking and we hit it off well. We slowly talked and soon after started talking daily. Then we were meeting each other and before you know it we were talking and making future plans together.
I saw Michael's profile the first day I logged onto LDSSingles.com! He is a widow with four beautiful children. I am a divorced convert to the church. We chatted for three weeks, talked on the phone for three weeks, spent Thanksgiving together, and are planning on getting married in June of 2010! It is a dream come true! Thank you so much!
I met Nicki on LDSSingles early on, but I was trying to play hard to get for about three weeks (I wasn't quite ready for the commitment again since I had just lost my wife a month before to Leukemia). I chatted with her and built a terrific friendship. Finally, I became frustrated that people seemed sympathetic, but uninterested in actually dating. I was also disappointed that everyone seemed to be so far away since I am in Chicago and everyone else seems to be in Utah, even Nicki. I wanted to make one last attempt and Nicki grabbed my attention. Even though my status was offline, she sent an instant message. We started to chat further and she gave me her phone number and I decided to call her. We talked on the phone for the next six hours. At three thirty in the morning we decided to call each other the next evening. At two thirty in the morning we decided to Skype the next evening. The instant I saw her on the computer screen I knew that she was woman that would fill the void in my life. She is amazing for all that she is willing to take on with four kids and a husband that is still dealing with the stresses of this life. After a short week of late night phone calls and trip to the temple to pray about it...I know that she is the woman of my dreams. She is my eternal companion prepared by my Loving Heavenly Father for me and my family. We will be married in June of 2010.
Thanks LDS Singles,
