My husband Mark and I met on LDSSingles in late July or early August 2008. I'm not quite sure how it happened- but I'm sure his good looks were part of the reason we began talking. :) I was fascinated with him and getting to know someone from another culture (he's Filipino; I'm American) and we chatted and exchanged emails several times a day. Then, one day in September, we talked about our plans for the future. I mentioned I wanted to finish the graduate degree I was working on, and he effectively said, "Okay, if that's what you want in life, good luck and enjoy." I was stunned! I told him, "Well, of course I want to get married and have children, but working on this degree is what I'm doing in the mean time." Once he really understood my priorities, he asked me to be his girlfriend. I thought it was silly, seeing as how I'd never met him, but we did have a good connection and enjoyed each other immensely. Well, as boyfriend and girlfriend, we began talking on the phone everyday. We decided we better meet each other- to see if we were compatible, and for me, to ensure he wasn't psychotic. :) We arranged for a meeting in October. I flew up to Alaska, where he was living (my first and so far only airplane ride!) and we enjoyed each other's company greatly. After a lengthy talk one night, we decided we loved each other and wanted to get married. And soon. Like, the next day! Many things factored into our decision, and it was something we had prayed and fasted for before. We just felt it was right. The next day, we were married, and a year later, sealed in the Idaho Falls temple. Now we are a happy family of three with the most beautiful, most precocious 11 month old in the world! Thanks to people in our lives who urged us to try LDSSingles, we were able to meet, get to know each other on a deeper level first, and find our true love!
