Success Stories: 2011
After a decade of dating the "normal" way I went online and within 2 months I found someone amazing! It took a lot of odd-balls to get there; but I was open to finding the man of my dreams, no matter the circumstances. The rest of our relationship has proceeded down a "normal" course, and I can't wait for the rest of life to unfold.
I was getting sick of the girls in Southern Utah because they would not give me a chance because of my disability. So one night I decided to just give LDSSingles a shot and whle I was on LDSSingles I met several nice people, but there was girl in particular that I met that I have grown to love so much. Our relationship has grown at an amazing rate and we knew within a month of talking to each other and knowing each other that we were going to get married. I am one of the luckiest guys on the earth to be able to find a girl like this. She is the most amazing person I know. She loves me for who I am. We are working together to build our realtionship, our spirituality and our faith even stronger each day. We both want to support each other and help each other out and because of that I love her with all of my heart.
When I signed up for ldssingles.com I had zero expectations. Online dating? Who really does that?
Although I had just graduated from BYU and was trying to meet people. Not long after I signed up I started chatting with a guy who lived about 20 miles away. After a week of chatting we decided to meet.
He ended up being in my grandma's ward, his siblings knew my family.... and his profile picure didn't do him justice... I will spare you the sappy story....
We got married in August 2011 in the Twin Falls Temple and I couldn't be happier.
Jesse first contacted me May 2011. We emailed back and forth and decided to meet for the first time in August. I live in Redlands, CA and Jesse lives in St. George, UT. Since the first time meeting everything has been so great! We can't believe that we met our perfect match online. We are extremely happy and grateful for ldssingles.com!
My fiance and I are very much in love! We've had the most amazing dating experience, and will be getting married within the next three weeks. Finding each other feels like a miracle. We both feel like we're the luckiest for getting so much more than we could ever have dreamed in each other. I highly recommend this site. It attracts fantastic people and provides a way of connecting unique from any other. Without LDSSO I never would have known I was living in the same town as my soulmate.
I met a nice man, he is older than me, but that is fine. He sent me a message and I answered him after 2 weeks. We talked on Skype, then we meet in person. I want to know more about him. I'm so glad I made my account here and I'm so happy to have met him. :) I hope everything work out for us. Thank you so very much. :)
Around mid-July of 2011, I decided to put a profile on this site. I never thought anything would happen because I was very skeptical about internet dating. On August 18th, just a month later, I had a first date with a very wonderful woman who I will be marrying on March 31st, 2012. It just so happens that it is the day after my birthday too. My fiance's name is Jessica and she is as excited as I am to be married. I have never felt like this about anyone and I am just elated to be able to spend the rest of my life with my very best friend!
Started emailing back and forth and then shared phone numbers. We got along so well on the phone that we decided to meet. Once in person we continued to have positive experiences together and continue to have positive experiences. We are just so happy together that we are both grateful that we were able to meet on this site.
Just wanted to share our success story. My husband and I met on LDSSingles online. At the time, I wondered if people found success here or not, and read some of the success stories. I read some of the stories to see if it really worked for people. Well, it does. We dated for a little over a year and have been married for seven.
I'm so glad that I tried it out. What I like about LDSSO is that your profile is available 24 hours a day. Unlike the dating scene where you can only meet people when you are out and about, with LDSSO, someone could find me even while I'm sleeping. My profile was working even though I wasn't.
The other tip I have is to give people a shot. Sometimes a person might contact you, and you think that there is no way that you'd be interested; I recommend that you give them a shot anyway. (Opposites attract.) When my (now) husband first contacted me, I wasn't even sure that I should write him back. (For some reason, he put a picture on his profile of himself after several days of camping ... well a fellow just looks a bit rough around the edges after a few days in the wilderness.) In spite of the photo, I got a reassuring feeling that things would work out. They have; we have a good marriage and two great children. If you are wondering if you should sign up, I say: "Go for it."
PS This tip may not work for everyone. Be open minded, but trust your instincts, too.
