I got an email from you all last year when I closed my account. I decided to finally email you back because I met my wonderful husband on your website. We met in Sept of 2003 and he proposed to me on Christmas Day that year in front of his family--he really put me on the spot, huh? We were sealed for all time and eternity in the Salt Lake Temple on Aug 12th 2004. We are coming up on our 6th month anniversary and things are so wonderful. I am also enclosing our engagment picture. Thanks to you I have found the man of my dreams and we are so happily married :)
Thank you to LDS Mingle. Coming out of 5 years in Scientology was hard. I was investigating many Churches and faiths and LDS was one of them. After going to the homes pages for LDS, I found a middle of the road Church I felt comfortable with. I contacted the local ward and at about the same time met another on LDS Mingles with just an 86% match.
She gave me the ultimate encouragement about finding out the truth about Mormonism, and it all came into prohibition this past weekend. She flew about 800 miles from the blizzard in the N.E. to attend my Baptism. It meant that much to her.
Without this good woman being there when I had questions, I might still be out there looking for the right faith. The Elders were most informative during my investigations and I sense that almost everyone in our Church wants to help when called on.
Thank you LDS and the LDS Mingles group.
I would like to share our story. "Sugarcane" came from the Philippines and I came from Idaho. So, it's like halfway around the globe. I met "sugarcane" here on this website last may 2003 and it seems the door of the heaven opened for the both of us. It is a really great feeling, and from that time we haven't stopped communicating. Then, I came up with a plan to see her in person. So, last April 2004, I went to the Philippines. Yeah, it is the longest flight I taken in my entire life. Then, we meet and she is so sweet. We get to know more about each other. I meet her family. And, it is a wonderful expercience. Then, I went back last December until January 2005. Yeah, it takes a lot for me, but "It is worth it". She will be moving here to Idaho. We will get married in the Salt Lake temple, as soon as she can get here in the states. We are all hoping that the paper work will go smoothly and she will be joining me and my family either in Oct. or December. All I can say is that no matter how far it is, if you want it and work for it and have desire for it and follow the prompting of the spirit--God will always have His way... because "When there is a Will, there is a Way".

I'm from New Zealand. My soon to be wife is from Utah. What we thought was just a dream, is now a reality. We began chatting every day for hours, since September. We have seen the Lord's hand in our meeting a dozen times. I was supposed to go to BYU Hawaii, but we both decided to meet before the semester started. I made a detour to Utah just to see what might happen, and 2 weeks after my arrival I asked her to marry me. We will be married in February of this year. I know that LDS Mingle is a good website, Keep the Faith and I am sure the Lord will provide a way.
I met my now fiancée here on LDSmingle in September of 2003. My user name was "jenni62". To be honest, my expectations from online dating were not that high. I had just ended a long-term relationship and I was really only searching opportunities that may have proved more promising than what was available in my singles ward. To my pleasant surprise, I met and went out with several quality, fun, top notch LDS guys. Then one day I received a smile from “wiltheskifreak”. He had so many great pictures of himself doing fun things, from scubadiving to backpacking. His profile definitely caught my attention. I wrote him back, and we emailed back and forth for about 1 and ½ months. We went out on our first date in November 2003. Though I’d never had a blind date turn into a 2nd date in my life, this one did. We continued a friendship until Feb of 2004 where our relationship took a step up and we became a couple. Being that he was from Portland and I from Seattle, the long-distance part was very hard. As we continued to make long drives to see each other (sometimes it would only be for a few short hours together), we grew closer and knew that this relationship would not end. A few months later I found a job in Portland and moved. We got engaged in October 2004 and we are planning to be married in the Portland Oregon Temple in March 2005.

My name is "shelbelle" and I originally had no intention of joining this site. My friend Jennifer told me about the site, so I thought that I would check it out. I was reading some of the messages on the message board, but found that with the free membership I couldn't reply. I wasn't about to pay to join, but something was tugging at me that I should. I protested for a little bit, and then thought why not? What will it hurt. I browsed through the profiles a little and that's when I saw "yahwho707". That was on December 10th, 2004. I thought he was cute and I was pretty sure that Santa Rosa wasn't too far from Concord. So, I thought I would send him my profile and see what happened. Well, he checked me out and we started im'ing all the time. I found out that he was a recent convert,going to school to be a nurse, and had 3 of the cutest boys ever. He called me Monday, the 13th, and then we talked on the phone every chance we could, most nights till 1 or 2 am. I met him in person on Dec. 18. He was way hotter that his picture and I fell in love with his 3 boys at first sight. We went to dinner and talked for hours. It was torture when he had to leave, but he lived over an hour away. He came back down the next night to hear me sing at a Christmas fireside. We again talked for hours and I knew that he was someone I could be serious about. However, I was leaving the next day to go to Phoenix for a week for Christmas. He talked to me all the time while I was gone, and I found myself wishing that he was there with me. As soon as I got home we made arrangements to see each other. We talked and im'ed while I was at work every day and talked on the phone every night. We talked about getting married and what it would be like when we got married. Eventually we decided, well, what are we waiting for? We are miserable only seeing each other on the weekends and want to be together all the time. He proposed on Tuesday, January 11, just 2 days shy of the one month mark. We talked to our family and my bishop and some of my ward members. With their help, we arranged to be married that Saturday, Jan. 15, 2005. We are now in the process of combining 2 households and 5 kids and loving every minute of it. I am so grateful that I listened to the prompting to join the website and that I found the man I have been searching my whole life for. He teases me all the time "Where have you been all my life?" and I say "An hour away in Concord. I guess you should learn to branch out more." ;) I am so glad I found this website. I don't think we would have ever found each other without it. We are so happy!!!! Thank you so much.

When "Dragonmaster" and I first met on the Mingle, it was an instant friendship. We knew that, if nothing else, we would be friends forever. Imagine our surprise when, two days later, we met in person and fell in love almost instantly! It was wonderful! We fit so well that his family couldn't believe that we had just met! And since then everything else has worked perfectly! Our families have melded together as though they were meant to be (as we know they were). If nothing else, our relationship has been a true miracle. We would never have met if it hadn't been for miracles! "Dragonmaster" had never gone on the net to find anyone before and the second day he does he meets me! I had set a limit of 5o miles as the distance I was willing to go, and now find myself willingly going 150 in one direction! It's a miracle that we never cease to thank our Heavenly Father for! And thank you, Mingle, for being the vehicle for this miracle!
We met each other a little over a year ago on Mingles and started to write each other. This was followed by phone calls. The fact that she was in CA and I was in WA didn't seem to be a big barrier to us. She came up here several times and came to Reno, Las Vegas, and Salem, to watch me play softball in several senior softball tournaments. I made 5 or 6 trips to Calif to visit her. We got married Dec 20th in Calif and I will move to Calif next week, as she would like to keep working another 2 or 3 years. Thanks for your site, it worked great!
If you have given up on finding someone, dont!
If you think the internet won't work for you it won't. If you give it a shot with an open mind, you will find what you are looking for with patience and honesty.
If you don't like the idea of being an internet dating success story, believe me you can get over it...
If you know what you want and won't settle for less....you will find it here on this site...
Intrigued by a profile I finally found the love of my life. Believe me, the last thing I wanted to be was an internet dating success story. However, I now spread the word that internet dating does work, if you are truly honest with yourself and find someone who is the same.
Thankyou LDSMingle from the bottom of my heart. I found a Texan who cherishes, loves and respects me and our lives together begin in the Dallas Temple on April 30, 2005.
