Success Stories: 2012
After a couple years of using LDSSingles.com on and off, I received a message from a young woman who made a simple small gesture. Not one of your usual, "nice profile," or "Your cute," type of messages. We started to exchange a few small messages, and next thing we knew, we were spending many hours talking on the phone. After visiting her for a few days, and having her down to visit me for a few days, we decided to make things serious. It all seems like a blur now, because we so quickly fell in love. We both felt that the Lord had a hand in our coming together. The timing that we both were using LDSSingles.com, and the fact that I was the first and only person that she had ever initiated a conversation with. Along with several other happenings in our lives, we strongly feel the Lord had given us the opportunity to meet. We are both very grateful for this site making that possible.
I decided that I was going to give online dating a chance, but I was only going to try it for a month. I moved back home after graduation for the Spring and Summer and just wanted to meet some new people and make some new friends. After a few days on LDSsingles my now boyfriend and I began messaging each other everyday for two weeks. After two weeks we went on our first date and we felt like it was meant for us to meet. It has been completely amazing since then. I guess one month was all I needed on the site because I think I met my best friend!
I joined as a dare and he joined because he was just randomly search through the local girls. He saw my profile and knew he had to make an account and meet me, so he did! We sent a couple of flirts back and forth and decided to meet in person. The next Sunday we met in person at the park and the rest is history :)
Josh and I met on this site back in March of 2011. but we really didn't start talking until May of the same year. By August or September we were talking on the phone. In December we met in person and knew that there was something special about each other, but we needed to pray and be sure that this was the road that Father in Heaven wanted for us. Josh returned in February of 2012 and proposed near a river. We are to be married on May 19th, 2012. Thanks so much LDSSingles.com!
We originally contacted each other back in February but started to get to know each other starting in April. He came up to visit me after a deep conversational period through messages, email, Facebook, texts then phone. I never believed in soul mates until now but I know honestly he is the one!
Although I have ALWAYS wanted to get married, I never thought it would ever happen to me. After many years of searching and waiting, I finally found my (future) Eternal Companion!!!! Our fairytale has already begun!!!!
About 3 months ago after being pressured by family and friends about my dating situation in my current location I decided to muster up the courage and give LDS Singles a go. In the past I have felt shady about online dating vs. my true nature of face to face interaction. I am very Southern and feel that technology has dampened the traditional values of courtship but I swallowed my pride joined anyways with hope of getting a few dates to see if this site was legit. I was a regular male sending out the occasional flirt and hoping to spark the interest of a girl in waiting. One day as I was clicking through the endless list of girls I came across someone who caught my attention and it wasn't all based off of looks. She was beautiful, elegant, and overall someone I could picture myself with. I was very impressed with her profile and found very similar goals and interests we both shared. I decided to write her which was out of the norm for me when it comes to LDS Singles or online dating. I honestly didn't think I was good enough for her and thought what the heck I will see what happens but with a thought of not getting my hopes up. She eventually wrote back and we started off soft and simple with the basic get to know you tactics. I have a nature about throwing in my personality as much as possible when it comes to writing to someone I am interested in getting to know better. After a while we decided to move our chats to email because it was more convenient to access that from work, phone and school. We had only sent a few emails when all of a sudden I didn't hear from her. I wasn't heart broken because once again I had made sure for this hook up site not to get my hopes up. I went back to LDS Singles and slowly started from scratch with other possibilities even though deep down she had truly caught my attention. After about 3 weeks I decided to pray more specifically to prepare myself and my future spouse to be ready and help us to both be more worthy. About a few days later it seemed like I got hammered with flirts and messages on LDS Singles, Facebook, and in person. It was a humbling experience that I am not trying to brag about but the Lord was letting me know he heard me. About two weeks after praying and as I was continually doing so I got a message back from the girl I had originally found that I had liked so much. She had mentioned she was sorry that it had taken her so long to get back to me and that life had gotten crazy with work and school. She mentioned she was really interested in getting to know me more and if I was willing to give her another chance. I of course leaped on the opportunity and wrote her back immediately and we had an amazing spark like I have never before seen or felt. We wrote each other an email everyday without fail or hesitation for well over a week which turned into multiple emails, Facebook friends, texting, and still tackling the LDS Singles account but exclusively with her. We later stepped it up and spoke on the phone which turned into a middle school style of conversing talking for 3-6 hours a day. Finally, a situation arose that made it possible for me to take a trip from NM to UT to see her face to face and see if the spark we had on all the technological resources measured up to the real deal. I was in Provo seeing some family and she took the train to Sandy and jumped on a bus to Orem where we finally met for the first time. We were so nervous but literally both felt we were ready for this relationship to happen. Everything felt natural and amazing and our first date was my favorite and most fun date I have ever encountered. I believe it will be my last first date as well. She and I are still dating and are currently in a serious relationship that could eventually lead to something absolutely incredible. This may not be the greatest love story ever told but it is to me. Thanks for making a true believer out of me and helping me find the girl of my dreams.
I am a convert and I never thought I would find the right LDS girl that would love me for who I am. I didn't go on a mission and I didn't think I could really my my true love, but I did...thanks to LDSSingles.com
After 3 marriages, some dating and trying 2 other dating sites, I signed up on LDS Singles. After a few weeks I found Linda's photo & profile and was immediately interested. I started writing her and we got along so well that we decided to meet. Our first date was 12 hours long. We have been meeting about 4 times per week and we got engaged on Valentines Day. I am very grateful for your service.
