My twin brother had actually wanted me to sign up for this dating service because he wanted to see how our "personality colors" matched up. After much persuasion from him and one of my cousins, I decided to try this site out. I always did it to meet new friends. I've met several very very good friends there that I will always cherish.
Well, on May 18th, 2005 ... I was sitting at the computer and decided to pull up the site. I then found myself searching through their database of "single men!" Ha!! There were some really good ones on there, and of course, some very very scary ones.. Just as I was about to just give up, I saw a profile. He was really cute, and sounded like a really neat guy. SO, for fun.. I decided to write to him. Well, he wrote me back.. Totally unexpected, let me tell ya!! Well, we started chatting. We were actually having a really nice conversation. He seemed like a really sweet guy. Well, I didn't have much more time to use the computer, and I told him I was going to have to go, and that I did not have a computer at home. He asked if he could call me. Never before had I EVER given a guy I had never met my telephone number. But, for some reason... I felt it was ok. So, we exchanged numbers.
After I got home, he called me. It was so nice to talk to someone who understood me. In fact, he seemed to know me. He would say things about me, that I never told him. Things that weren't even on my profile online. We had a LOT of the same likes and dislikes. In fact, I like some really weird combinations of food. He told me a couple of his,.. and they matched.. Really weird. Anywho.. We talked for like 6 hours that night.. and every night for about a week or so. Well, by this time we felt we were getting to know each other good enough that we decided that we wanted to meet. I was still eerie about meeting someone online.
Well, let me cut through a bunch of this, because it is going to take forever. He came down to meet me, and holy cow.. It was really awesome. I kept getting really good feelings about him. He was just the sweetest guy I had ever met. He was kind, and a gentleman. He actually opened doors for me! Well, we got to know each other more, and I eventually took him home to meet my family, then he took me to meet his family. I prayed and prayed about everything. Because it seemed to be going a little too fast. But, after praying about it, and getting to know him more, I felt really really good about it. Well, on June 10th 2005, he proposed to me, and we got married in the Snowflake, Arizona temple on June 25th. It was one of the most wonderful experiences that I have ever had in my life. Something I will truly cherish.
This marriage thing is pretty cool. I know its not easy, and things are going to be tough at times. But, it is totally worth it. He is an amazing man and he treats me VERY well. I don't have any doubts about marrying him. He's so good to me, and always by my side especially if something is bothering me."
We have now been happily married for just over a year and a half and are still in love as the day we met! After moving around for what seemed like forever, we finally settled back down where we were sealed. It's beautiful here and we are now trying to start our family.
Although there are tons of success stories about people meeting their Eternal Companions online, you can't be too careful. There are crazy people out there, and you have to be safe. Pray about this person before you meet him, and do not give out any personal information until you've checking him out. I actually did a background check on my husband before I met him.. :) haha.. Sounds crazy now.. But.. its safer! Always meet people you've found online in a busy place in public, not a secluded place in private. Have fun, and date tons before you get married.. After you get married, keep dating.. My husband and I have stayed closed because we didn't stop dating after we got married. I hope everyone out there finds someone as great as the man I found. I'm glad we are sealed for "Time & Eternity!"
