The “3 contacts a day” rule.

Sara,

I sent a note a couple of months ago informing you that I would be
terminating my membership, for good reasons of course. I found a lovely
person through LDS Mingle to whom I am now engaged to marry October 6th
2006. I am in Sacramento California and she lives in Richmond Virginia. It
has been a challenge to date and prepare but we have made the sacrifices to
really get to know one another. On May 26th I proposed to Heather Strange
from outside her bedroom window. It was very traditional. Our courtship has
been exciting and wonderful. Heather was rated I believe 92% my match. That
is interesting seeing how we are different in so many ways. It is however to
our interest that we are both different; we both feed off of each other's
strengths and love it. We are planning a DC Temple Sealing. I will be so
eternally grateful for LDS Mingle, that you provided a forum to meet my
"soul mate". I know you must have many success stories but this will go down
as one of the most exciting events ever! Thank you.

Mike

Her Story;
On Christmas Eve 2005, I decided to get over my ego and try your website again. I had been a member off and on, and finally realized that love, like anything, takes work. So, after applying the “3 contacts a day” rule, I was ultimately contacted by a man outside my age range preferences towards the end of January. Something told me to write back and give it a mature chance. I kept applying the rule of 3, realizing that not everything is apparent at first. Three emails told me it was okay to let him call. Three phone calls, each of which lasted over 4 hours, told me it was okay for him to visit. Three visits told me all about the rest of my existence. I fell in love with someone who was most definitely prepared for me by Heavenly Father and who I possibly never would’ve met any other way than online. He’s in California and I’m in Virginia. He’s been married with 3 children and I’ve been single. I’m 32 and he’s 49. Only the internet could have facilitated our search and our budding romance. I always thought that I’d use LDS Mingle as just an ego boost everyday till I met someone locally. I never thought that I’d actually meet my soulmate through your services. It’s never like you think it’s going to be. He’s more than I dreamed could be mine. I’m so thankful to be sealed this October to Michael. I’ve searched all my life for him.


His Story;
We were three thousand miles apart in more than just one aspect. Of course you want to date someone close to you, but the whole reason I did get on "Mingle" was because I wanted to open up my heart as well as the possibilities. As it was, the most wonderful woman, more than I could have ever imagined, answered one of my many sincere introductions. It would have seemed impossible odds to match her and I, not only was she 3,000 miles away, but 16 years younger, never married, and no children. From my prospective our divisions didn’t add up, it didn't look like a match. After many developing emails and then many endless conversations on the telephone, out of curiosity, I flew from California to Virginia to meet her. What happened from that point on seemed to be out of our hands. We did not hit it off at first and it seemed for a short time that the initial trip was not as one would hope. We did however connect on at least a friendship level, so we continued our long distance communications. At some point, which is too special to thoroughly describe, I just knew that this young lady was it for me. Unaware or her feelings, she started to feel the same for me. We had another visit with each other in Virginia; it was then that the fireworks started to ignite. From the moment we discovered within ourselves that we had actually found a "soul mate" in each other we have been embarrassingly in love. We’ve been like two teenagers in love for the very first time. I am beaming from my very soul and more than grateful to announce that Heather and Michael are getting sealed in the Washington DC temple October 6th 2006. We have courted and we have time tested our first impressions no matter how different they were. We know we have found love, true love, even though it may have appeared at the beginning that we are so far apart on so many levels, we are indeed a match.
