We should look for someone like ourselves

I am now engaged to someone that I met on the Mingle. This was a great service. I think everyone is a little hung up on distance. My fiancee (username "heartracer") is +-3,000 miles from me. So, after 10 hours in private chat, we graduated to telephone. After 30 hours of telephone talk and calls to former bishops, counseling with current bishop, calls to her friends, and several hundred questions back and forth (prayer and spiritual experiences). I flew to "Neutral Ground" SLC and proposed on the steps of the Salt Lake Temple. Then, meetings with my Stake President and visits to the temple to reconfirm the previous answer. Now, with that out of the way we are shuttling back and forth once per month to each other's locations really getting to know each other, and each other's kids and letting them see the dating part. Kind of backwards, but there was a serious spiritual advance confirmation to this (I am a former Bishop). This does not mean I am any different that any other single parent father but I do know what following the spirit means. Now my advice: Always, always, always check for references, previous bishops, friends, relatives, and look with a wary eye. The internet can be used for good or evil. There are as many or more negative experiences with the internet as there are positive ones. Always check out the references. Sisters you are often too trusting. Find out the ward the brother lives in from him then ask your bishop to look up his bishop in the "Worldwide leadership directory". Then, call and ask the home ward bishop if he can honestly recommend that His own daughter marry "so and so". Ask whether he honors his priesthood. You get the idea. As experienced older singles, whether never married, divorced, or widowed we should look for someone like ourselves. Someone to have a mature covenant relationship with. Guys don't be afraid to look for someone who is older than you are.(My financee is almost five years older than I am). Do you really want a "child wife"? I don't think so. Remember don't ask for what you are not. Good luck and keep looking. Always stay close to the Spirit.

The Knight I have always wanted

I would like to inform you at LDSMingle that I have found the love of my life using this means. We will be married in the Bountiful Utah Temple on the 8th of June 2002. He was "536Sig" and he is a wonderful man and the knight I have always wanted to be sealed too. Thank you for the wonderful friends I have found, and the man of my dreams to spend eternity with.

We wouldn't have met if it hadn't been for this site!

I just wanted to thank all of you at LDS Singles Mingle. I, (Ldsmomof2), married my best friend on July 28th, 2001. I met "Mckit" on this site and we started talking and hit it off so well. It was a great way to meet other LDS singles and he lived very close to me. We would not have met if it had not been for the dating site. Thank you!

Promotes faith for those who had just about given up

I wanted to write and thank you for your site. It has made two people very happy. My husband (Rostin) and I met on the site and have been married now for 2 1/2 years. It was completely unexpected for both of us. I was looking for a few people to talk with and get to know as friends. I was a single mother who did home health care as a livein with a family in our ward. My husband was a single dad with custody of his two children. He was newly divorced and I had been separated for a while but the divorce had been final for only a short while. I was living in Utah and he was living in Tennessee. We started writing in November of 1998 and by January of 1999 we knew it was meant to be. He had friends that lived in Salt Lake and decided to come visit us both. He brought one child and they were here a week. He proposed on a carriage ride around downtown and we were married in May of the same year. Due to extenuating circumstances we haven't been sealed yet. However, we are anxiously waiting. Just wanted to let you know that your sight does really help singles and promotes faith again in the hearts of those of us who had just about given up.

He was so sweet and just as sweet in person!

Everytime that I did a search on LDSMingle, "Big-E" would come up as the most compatible for me. So, I sent him an e-mail to get to know him better and he was so sweet. I had to meet him. He was just as sweet in person as he was on the site. He proposed to me on New Years Eve and I couldn't be happier about getting married to this wonderful guy. Thanks!
