Success Stories: 2011
For those skeptics who may be hesitant about online dating, let me give you some peace of mind. If you give it an honest try, follow the safety tips, and are proactive I’m sure you will have a fun positive experience meeting quality people.
More than a year ago, I was recently divorced after four and a half years of being married. I was 28 years old, had a one-year-old little boy and had no idea how to meet people. Despite my own hesitations, joining LDS Singles helped me to realize there were a lot of people out there in similar situations. So, I gave it my best.
A few weeks after joining, I found a 29-year-old engineer from Herriman, UT, named Ray. We messaged back forth several times, then talked on the phone and decided to go out. We had a lot of fun, so we went out again, then again and again and again. Although we lived an hour apart, the distance didn’t seem like a sacrifice at all, because well, we liked each other. All the other names and faces on LDS Singles seemed to fade away and all I could focus on was him.
Eventually our feelings for each other grew stronger. After dating for three and a half months, we were engaged. Then four months after that, we were sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple.
It has been three months since we were married. We are happily settled in Lehi, Utah and my little boy loves Ray. We are expecting our second child in June. Each new day is a blessing and we are very happy. Although life will inevitably have its challenges, we are just happy to have each other to face those challenges together.
I know that Ray and I wouldn’t have met if it wasn’t for LDS Singles. Thankfully he was willing to give it a try and so was I. And now, here we are, wondering how we ever survived without each other before.
I met my fiance 18 years ago when he was my zone leader on my mission. He had waited to go on a mission until he was a little older, which made him a couple years older than I. I quickly found myself having a strong interest in him, and he in me. Although, we always kept everything above board, never talking about our feelings with each other or acting inappropriately. But it was clear to each of us that the feelings were mutual. He went home from his mission before I did. We wrote a few times...then he met his ex wife. So that was the end of that.
I met my late husband (yes, I'm a widow) on LDS Singles when I was 32. We were married for 5 years before he passed away. Since the online thing worked for me before, I thought I would try it out again. After exhausting all possibilites on this site, I cancelled my membership, but left my profile online in case someone interesting decided to write to me. One day, while I was taking a look at my profile views, I saw that old zone leader of mine listed as a new member in my area. He had only been on this site for a few days and was about to take his profile down (he wa a little leary of the whole online dating scene). I quickly paid for a month membership and wrote to him.
It wasn't long after that that we found ourselves in love and talking marriage. It has been a fast and intense courtship with the Lord's hand obviously all over it. He is the love of my life! I am so blessed to be marrying him!
Thank you LDS Singles for bringing love to my door once more! :)

I met a great girl on LDSSingles.com. She is very sweet, kind, funny and full of life. We have hit it off right form the start. I have dated other girls, but it wasn’t the same. She is everything I could ask for. We are taking it slow so that we can get used to each other. She is willing to work toward a lasting relationship. Thank you for the ability to see some of their intrusts on your web site. This helped me to see what I was looking for in a sole mate.
I got a flirt from one of the men on the site. After some pondering I decided to send a message back. We began emailing back and forth and then started chatting. He made me laugh! He made me feel special! We have taken things slow, but we are dating and things are going great! Word of advice....step out of your comfort zone and take a chance on someone that might be outside the "norm" for you. I did....and it's been heaven! We have truly been blessed!
Jeff and I met on LDS singles in May of 2010. We have been a couple for over a year now. We hit it off from the beginning, and things moved very quickly. I lived in Nauvoo Illinois, and would go walking everyday through the historic town while Jeff and I talked on the phone. We got to know each other very quickly. We met in person the weekend of July 4th, and we became engaged on July 24th. It was a very special day. Following him asking me to marry him, we went to the Nauvoo temple. What a day. One I will never forget. We were married on September 8, 2010. We knew we were suppose to be together, so we decided why wait. We are both so happy and we have LDS singles to thank.
After much peer pressure - I finally signed up for LDSSingles. I must admit I had very little faith that I would meet my eternal companion via online dating. After nearly 3 months (I do realize that isn't that long), I was considering whether or not to renew my account - I really hadn't had any "luck". I did "one last search" and met Kelly. That story is amazing, but too long to share here. Suffice to say that the Lord knows me individually and forged the perfect mate for me. I am eternally grateful to my Heavenly Father for His mercy and love. He has blessed me with one of His choice sons who will take me by the hand into the temple where we will be sealed for time & all eternity.
I was about cancel my account when I saw a photo and decided to send a message to her. I wasnt expecting much... Well we emailed and exchanged phone numbers the next day and have been talking and dating ever since. Its been almost a year now and we are talking about getting engaged and she only lived 15 minutes away!
I found my husband on LDS Singles. I emailed him first and we chatted for a week before our first date. We were engaged after six weeks and married six weeks after that. We now have a beautiful blended family of four children and couldn't be happier!
My husband and I met on LDSSingles.com in 2005. I am happy to say that on Sunday we celebrated the 5-year anniversary of our marriage. We have two beautiful girls, ages 3 and 14 months. The Lord works in mysterious ways, and I am forever grateful that He led me to this site. Thank you!
