I met Audree on LDS mingle in June. We talked online for a week, then moved into long, LONG, phone conversations. A little over a month later, I drove 800 miles to go meet her. We spent 3 days together and we really hit if off well. A month later with daily phone conversations she drove down to spend a weekend with me. We still we're going strong and couldn't get enough time together. The next weekend I spontanously drove up again to suprise her for the weekend. A couple more weeks went by, and we went to General Conference together, and that weekend I asked her Dad for her hand in marriage. He was pleased. A week later I drove all night to suprise again, but this time at 6 in the morning, 2 dozen white roses, and a diamond ring. We couldn't be happier. Thanks LDS mingle.
I believe our story is amazing! My screen name was Loves2sign, and fiance's was Tallpine. I had been on Mingle for a couple of years, but had never paid to be a member. I had clicked about on profiles here and there, but had never found any one that I felt compelled to talk to, until I saw Tallpine. I remember sitting and staring at his picture for what seemed like forever! I *actually* said a quick prayer - "should I "Click Yes"? and everything in my body said, "Do it!" So I did! (August, 2006) Within minutes - he Clicked Yes back! I was simply dumbfounded. I had no idea what to do next!...Laughs... The next morning when I went to my computer - there it was - an email from Tallpine! The first thing I had to do was pay for a membership so I could read it. So I paid to read his email. He was witty, charming, self-assured, and I was immediately drawn to him! He actually said, he was my perfect match - laughs! We emailed like crazy over the next week and a half - and then we hit a bump in the road. I made the comment, "I wish you weren't so far away" - and he *thought* I was talking about him living in AZ and me living in Maryland; and he sent back, "maybe we shouldn't pursue a relationship given our locations"! I remember thinking, "Oh no! That's not what I meant!" I simply meant, "I wish you were sitting next to me at this very moment so I could touch you, look you in the eye and see if this is real!!" Thankfully, in the same email he took the risk and gave me his phone number and I called him. Let me say, it's a good thing that we have PCS to PCS! Over the next couple of months we spent thousands (yes, that's thousands, over 6,000 in one month!) on the phone. I made plans to visit him in AZ in October 2006; but he decided to come to me first in September - smile. He came out for a long weekend - I kept thinking he's "The One" when we would talk on the phone, but nothing prepared me for the connection we would make once in front of each other. Our long distance romance continued, I went out a month later, and he asked me to marry him! "Clicking YES" one more time - I said, "Absolutely!" (Actually, I said, "Are you sure?!" laughs, then I said Absolutely!) We are hoping to have a Spring Wedding at the Washington DC Temple - and then I'll be moving my small crew (2 little boys and a dog) out to AZ this coming Summer! I am *so* grateful to LDSMingle! We would not have met without this avenue to connect to each other! I'd like to leave a quote for the ladies from Anne C. Pingree, 2nd Counselor in the Relief Society General Presidency, "When a woman chooses to have Christ at the center of her own heart, at the nucleus of her personal world, she brings the Lord into the core of her home and family, be it a family of one or a family of many." Women we are strong! Never, never give up! Our Heavenly Father wants us to be happy - you are a favored child of his - and I pray for your journey in finding your eternal companion! Forever grateful, Loves2Sign

We met on here in May 2005. Just a smile and a few communciations and we soon were talking either on Mingles On line and soon on the other means.
There were some priorities to accomplish and some legals to get finished. We knew that we should be waiting and we tried to follow His guidance. We lived miles apart and kept communicating and after several months decided that a visit was appropriate. Two weeks with actual dating but just doing things right, living the gospel and working things out. Now almost two years later with many miraculous blessings and we are looking at being sealed in the Toronto Temple on May 11th 2007. Two years since we met here on LDS mingles.
Our love of our Heavenly Father has grown and the miracle of how he brought us together has strengthened our testimonies. We chose to set the goal of being sealed in the Temple. We ask often the question whenever a decision is to be made. "What would Heavenly Father want His children to do?"
"God Bless the Broken Road."
"Going to the Temple of Love"
We are so happy!!!!
May He bless you with the same
I have to admit that when I first signed up on mingle, I was very skeptical. I didn't really use my account much, and I would check my account every now and then. As I was browsing through mingle one day, I saw a picture that caught my attention. I hadn't really been using mingle much, but I decided that this girl was worth sending a smile to (even though I had no idea anything would come of it). She emailed me, and we met the same weekend. We went to church and spent time together. It wasn't long before we expressed to each other that we were in love, and the rest of the story is to be written...
I really enjoyed LDS Mingle the past months, and as a new member, it was really fun to "meet" and chat with long standing members on the Message Boards.
I met someone, "Snuffbo", and in July of this year we will be married in the Temple in Columbia, South Carolina.
I really wish there was an LDS site for married adults; similar to the single Mingle. I may be more suited for that site later this year.
Thanks you for your Mingle support.....

Thanks mingles for being the medium of meeting the love of my life. We're working on our relatoinship though. Hopefully or shall I say definitely according to MY ALMONDS we will be together this year. With prayers and faith I know we will be together forever. We have been chatting since late October but it seems we've known each other for so long. He have met my brother and I had a positive feedback about Picsius. He'll be visiting me here in the Philippines coming March and we're both excited that that day would come. We're praying hard and please do include us in your prayers. He has been my inspiration since then..I LOVE YOU MY FOREVER ALMOND...
My username is avtwrigl, and the guy I met and fell in love with, is "Harleyguy49." I really don't know what to say, except, we are both from Indiana. I drove out there to drop off my daughter and e-mailed him and said ,"Do you want to meet, I am coming to Indiana in a few
days?" We met in a restaurant half way between Terre Haute and Indianapolis and hit it off. This was in August, and we corresponded via phone, e-mail, and text. I went to Indy again in Oct, and then Thanksgiving. He just came
out here to Utah in Jan. and brought a ring! I can send a picture later, but, that is the story. Tanya

When I tried the second time to find my match on Mingle I actually said to myself, "Tall, dark, and handsome will have to just fall from the sky!" Little did I know he would. Niko2006 and I exchanged smiles, cards, and IMs for a few weeks in June 2006 and then had our first date 22 July 2006. He was so nervous, as was I, but I was determined to meet face to face before allowing myself to develop any real connection. Long distance relationships never worked for me. We hit it off instantly and I knew then that he was The One. As in any relationship there have been bumps but we have grown together because of it. On Thu, 21 Dec 2006 Niko proposed with the most beautiful ring I've ever seen. I said "YES, of course I will" and we both cried. We plan on marrying this summer in the Dallas Temple surrounded by family and loved ones.
We only live 45 minutes apart but would probably have never met if it had not been for LDS Mingle. True friendship, love, and marriage really can happen online. Spoken by a former skeptic.

We met on line, I was doing some research on Geneology, and all of a sudden he popped up. It just so happens we attend church in the same building, different wards but still attend there, and we live very close to one another. We met for the first time, took a nice long ride through the country, then I invited him to my sisters house for her 50th birthday, and we had a great time! We were all members and even the elders were there! Then we had another "date" and it was all good! He is kind, considerate, caring, loving and just an all around beautiful person. He says the same about me, and well, we both think that this is a good thing to follow through on and see if Father in Heaven would have it any other way. Things take time, and we've got lots of it!! Thank you LDS singles! Amazing he was so close to me, I probably wouldn't have ever met him without your help! May you walk in "HIS" peace today and continued to be blessed!!!!!
