I created an account on LDSSingles after a friend of mine had told me about some great experiences she’d been having. I wasn’t in a situation where I had the opportunity to meet a lot of people and thought maybe I’d give it a chance. She didn’t necessarily suggest that I join the site but I thought that maybe after the success she was having that I should give it a try.
I met JBird87 on the site about two weeks after I created the account. He sent me a message in the end of March 2011 and I responded. It happened to be his day off work so we were online at the same time and we started an IM conversation. We talked for hours, really hitting it off. He got my phone number and we continued to text throughout the rest of the night and the next day as well. The following evening we upgraded to phone conversations and talked for hours.
That weekend was General Conference and we set up a date to watch the Sunday evening session together. That evening, we really hit it off. It felt as if we’d known each other forever. It was amazing how much we had in common, how well our personalities meshed. We are now getting married in September of 2011! I really never thought I’d meet someone like him, who seems perfect for me in every way and can’t wait to officially start our lives together!
