I had been on Mingle for almost 2 yrs. I made a lot of friends and had some very special people in my life, especially from the 50+Chat room. One day during April Conf weekend 2007 I got a smile and responded with a short 2 line note. I didn't get a response immediately, but one day I saw him online and IM'd him. He was all thumbs on the keyboard and 10 minutes later asked if he could phone me. I had never given my number to someone the first time we typed together. BUT, there is always an exception to a rule. We talked for hours that first night. The Spirit told me he was the one......and he got the same confirmation, but we didn't say anything to each other. He asked me out for 3 weeks later. We continued to phone (he's not a great talker, but we managed to talk for hours each time!) He was a widower, and I wasn't sure if his date with me was his first, so I made some fun, casual plans for that day. He arrived, very nervous and wondering how things were going to go. We hugged at the door and it was like the movies....from then on, it was all good. He sat on my couch, a little sheepish and told me I was the one.........I didn't say much then, and just waited to see how the day played out. I am not someone that rushes into anything very quickly. We had such a good time on our date and planned another one for 2 weeks later. He had also dated 5 other women from Mingle in the 3 weeks before our first date. I was his last (and best!). We didn't wait the 2 weeks for the next date ... we saw each other every weekend from then on. (he lived 100 miles from me)
We both 'knew" that our looking was over. He wanted to get married "the sooner the better" but I wanted to let some time pass in order to get to know each other more. It's now only 6 months since our first date, and we've been married 2.5 months!! He's a dear man and I love him so very much. We were married in the Provo Temple. I don't have kids of my own, but now I have 4 grown kids and I'm grandma to 10!!
He was on Mingle for a month before he "Smiled" at me. I miss chatting with all my friends each evening, but now my life has taken on different interests and activities. I am very happy and I know this was the right decision for us.
Best Wishes to everyone,
