I will try to keep this short---even though my love for someone that I have met on LDS Singles Mingle is so overwhelming, I will try!
On January 23, 2003, I received a Smile from her. I was stunned by her beauty, by her profile, and what she had written. Thinking that she must have pressed the wrong button to send it to me, I took the chance and sent a Smile to her.
On January 29, 2003, I received another Smile from her. I knew this was no mistake. I sent a Smile back.
Knowing that I could never talk to her this way, I began saving the money that I needed to join this site to contact her. On March 25th, 2003, I had done that and joined this site. I'm a single dad, and money is tight.
I began emailing her. I did not receive any responses - at all. I was very disappointed.
On May 30th, 2003, I saw a posted photo of such a beautiful woman, I clicked on it to read her profile. It was her. I quickly became embarrassed, thinking that she had shown me that she was not interested in me, and here I am "stalking" her. I felt very prompted to write to her and apologize for this mistake and that I was not a weirdo that wouldn't leave her alone. I told her that I just didn't recognize her photo, and to please forgive me.
She responded immediately, and told me that she had just joined the site, was now able to read my emails, and that she felt very bad for not responding to them. She told me her Instant Messenger email address and we began talking for hours and hours.
I knew that I may only get one chance to tell her what I felt about her, and so, I took the chance. I knew that I loved her from the first moment I read her profile. I told her. We talked via email, we talked via phone and finally made arrangements to meet at the Seattle Temple last Saturday, June 14, 2003.
She was as stunning as ever. Her photos did not do her justice. She was so beautiful. I then drove her home to Vancouver, B.C. and felt prompted to ask her, "What would you do if I asked you to marry me?" She replied, "What would you do if I said, Yes?" I asked her to marry me. She said yes.
We spent a very incredible weekend together, had dinner, talked,learned of one another, attended Church together, and talked of our plans.
We have decided to marry next month and begin our lives together.
I appreciate this site and know that without it, I would not have found "guanaquita". My life is now in the hands of "guanaquita" and will look no further for what I have already found.
Again, I thank you, I thank my dear Heavenly Father for His guidance, and I thank her for her overwhelming love. I couldn't be happier; although, I know I will.
