Success Stories: 2012
I wanted to thank you for helping me find happiness. I am extremely shy, and never felt comfortable with "normal" dating. I knew about the risks of meeting people online, but about three years ago I felt strongly that I should try it out. I definitely had my fair share of awkward dates with guys who were just not what I was looking for at all. I seriously considered giving up on the online thing for a while, just after I came across a weird guy named Jason. I wondered if there was anyone out there who would be right for me.
Jason and I messaged back and forth a few times and he added me on Facebook. I remember thinking his profile picture was just odd. He had used Photoshop to make a picture of his face merged with Spiderman's. I limited his access to my personal info and nearly forgot about him. After about a month he started making random comments on my statuses, and we e-mailed a bit.
One day he messaged me and asked if I'd like to talk on the phone. I messaged back with my number, and that evening he called. After talking for about an hour, he asked if I wanted to hang out. Later I found out he was just sick of his roommate and wanted to get away from his apartment. I drove up to Salt Lake from Provo and we walked around the Capitol Building for a bit, then sat on a bench. That was at about 8:30. The next thing I knew, I looked at my watch and three hours had gone by! My shyness had never allowed me to have such a long, wonderful conversation with anyone I had just met before. I was comfortable with Jason from the moment we met in person. The next week we had our second date, and I got the strangest feeling that I was sitting next to my future husband. I didn't mention that to anyone, of course, because I thought it was silly. Especially since only a few weeks before I thought he was a bit of a dweeb. My feeling may have been silly, but a few months later he proposed to me by Snow White's wishing well at Disneyland. I shocked myself by saying "Yes!" We have been happily married now for almost two years.
And that's my success story. I honestly think I never would have found the courage to put myself out there without your help.
Thank you for helping me find my Jason!
So my new years resolution for 2011 was to date online. I started the year out by joining eHarmony for about 3 months and was not having any success or was not impressed. While I was on eHarmony I suggested to a friend to join a online dating site as well and I suggested she join ldssingles because I believe I had seen an ad or heard about it shortly before that. So she joined and had a couple dates and was telling me about it. Ldssingles sounded more like what I wanted (put me more in control of finding and making contact not just letting people get sent to me randomly) When my subscription to eHarmony ended I joined ldssingles. I posted about a half dozen pictures of me doing different things that make up my personality or things I liked to do (pictures say a thousand words and I think it's boring to read I like this and I like this and I have done this-I think pictures can be a great bonus to show things you actually like to do, obviously not over kill
on the pictures but a tactful half dozen or so). Among those pictures was one from my mission with me standing by a tasteful roadkill Armadillo. Because of the little response I did get from eHarmony, I put comments on that picture because I thought it would make a good 'icebreaker' or that if someone commented on it they would be someone i would keep talking to (they would have similar personality to mine). It worked because the initial contact with my BF was over that picture. I liked his face, read his little bio, but saw he was divorced and didn't know how interested I was in that or if he would want someone that hadn't been married before so I didn't leave a comment. But the next day he had looked at my page and commented on the armadillo picture!! From that the emails continued, we IM'd and texted, then met about two weeks after that first email and we never looked back. He had only been on the site for about 2 weeks and I was on for about a month and a half. When we started emailing. I first "fell in love" with how open and honest he was! He would tell me anything about his past and was just a real person. I "fell in love" with how our personalities complimented each other. It was easy to be around him and I wanted to be with him all the time. We could just talk and laugh and share stories about anything that has happened in our lives. He would tell me he had never had this much fun with someone or getting to know them, and I felt the same way. He has a romantic side that is very sweet also.
Andrew and I were “set up” by my sister. It was December 26th, 2011 and we were all sitting around my mom’s house just watching a movie. Sarah had her husband’s laptop and said, “I am tired of you being single Suz. I am going to set you up on LDS Singles.” I was SO AGAINST dating online, but I told her “fine, go ahead, but I am not going to have anything to do with it. You will have to run the entire thing.” So they did it. It was so funny. My 14 year old nieces, brother, and sister cruised for dudes most of the night. Lol. I honestly didn’t give it much thought.
Well one afternoon at work, I was wondering who had “checked me out” on the site and so I looked. I noticed that Andrew had viewed my profile and I clicked on his. I noticed that he was a convert to the LDS church, had an education, and he was cute. So for “some reason” I emailed him. I just said something very simple, like “Hi I just thought you were interesting and I am Suz.” He immediately emailed me back and was very cool. We just connected via email.
The 3rd email he sent, he asked for my phone number and I had no reservations about giving it to him. He called me the next night and our first phone call was 5 HOURS long. I felt like I was talking to my best friend. After I hung up, I knew I was talking to the man I was going to marry. From that moment on, we talked every night for hours and texted every day, all day.
He came out this past weekend and after seeing each other, its definite that we are going to get married...probably around this summer. I will move across the country to be with him. Not sure where we will get married yet, but we have some time to decide where. I have never felt this way about anyone before, ever. He really is the one and worth waiting for. And yes, he LOVED my cats! Lol…Corndog would sit in his lap at every chance she could get.
I met the most amazing woman in the world in the first 8 hours of opening my account with LDSSingles. I know it was a match made in Heaven and that we were meant to be. I could not have meant her without this site and I'm very grateful for its services. Thank You!!!!!!
From the first time I read Brandon's profile I knew he was different, in a good way. I couldn't resist sending him a message, I just knew I needed to learn more about this hilarious guy! He quickly responded and our messages turned into an awesome chat! I met him in person shortly after and we have had a "whirlwind" romance seeing each other everyday. I can't imagine my life without Brandon and I never would have met him without ldssingles. I am so excited that I get to marry this amazing man and be with him for eternity!!! It took persistence and quite a few "interesting" dates before I met Brandon, but it was well worth it so that I can have him in my life!
I want to thank you. My wife and I met on your service 11 1/2 years ago. We just had our 11th wedding anniversary. Our marriage has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I would never have found her had it not been for your service. I dated other women from other dating sites, but for the most part they had totally different values than what I was looking for. Thanks for providing a service that can help people with similar values, hopes, and dreams.
I joined LDS Singles looking for my Brother Wonderful! Within 2 weeks of being on, we were led to each other! Before joining I was quite skeptical...now I am a believer!! Thank you LDS Singles!!
I met this amazing girl from across the country. I live In Indiana and she is from Utah. We felt a spark almost instantly and have continued to fall in love since. We are very happy and plan to be married in the temple sometime in the fall. I feel that I would never had this opportunity to meet the love of my life other wise.
I am grateful for this site. I was online one evening, and was contacted by a wonderful man in an online chat. We have chatted everyday since, and will be meeting this July. We will be planning our wedding when we get together. Both of us had decided to try this site one last time, if we didn't meet someone, we were going to stop looking. Luckily we did find each other!.
