Met at a Church dance once. We never saw each other again until we became a random match on LDSMingle. We communicated online until our first date and have been dating ever since.
We met on LDS Mingle in December of last year and started dating right away and then got married in April of this year. This is a great site and I know a few people who have gotten married off of this website. We are very happily married and very grateful for this site because we would've never met any other way. Thanks!
You have been successful in helping me find "Mr. Right." He lives here in So. Calif.
only 100 miles from me. We are dating with marriage on the horizon, so
thank you for your assistance in finding him. I would have never found him
without your service. Thank you.
The love story of tegalto & duschin:
On April 22nd, 2011, I received an instant message request from duschin.
Whenever I got a chat request on LDSMingle, I would scan the guy's
profile before accepting, look at his photos and some key details I was
looking for in an eternal companion. What I saw on duschin's profile
broke my heart - he had recently lost his wife, and was very lonely. At
the time I didn't see it going anywhere, especially with me living in
Phoenix and him living in Las Vegas, but I figured the least I could do
was accept his chat request. We ended up hitting it off and immediately
found a lot in common. Ultimately I left our chat that night just glad I
was able to bring a little ray of sunshine to someone who truly needed
After that night I'd receive a chat request from duschin every other day
or so, and we quickly developed a close friendship. I felt like he knew
me better than anyone else by pure instinct. We were so similar it was
almost scary sometimes! After instant messaging each other for about
three weeks, duschin had plans to come out to Phoenix to visit family
for the weekend, and asked, "So, you want to see how cool I am in
person?" We met for lunch that Saturday, and ended up walking around the
same square block about a dozen times, just talking. Before we knew it,
five hours had passed, and he had to leave to meet family for dinner. I
don't think I fully appreciated the significance of this first meeting
until later that night when he couldn't wait to message me again, and we
were both genuinely excited to figure out how to meet up again. After
that, we started messaging each other every day, and just three days
after our first date, we decided that we were going to try doing
whatever we could to make us work. Even that early on we began our first
musings about eventually marrying each other.
Duschin made plans to come down to Phoenix again the very next weekend,
just to spend it with me. I had never even had a boyfriend before, so at
just one month shy of turning 24, I enjoyed having my hand held for the
first time, as well as my first kiss. I, being a teacher, found a nice
LDS family to stay with in Las Vegas for my upcoming summer vacation. We
saw each other every day that summer - breakfast, lunch, and dinner for
eight weeks. Best summer ever! We settled into a routine of taking
turns to visit each other every weekend, and the gas was well worth
On October 30th while visiting my oldest sister in California, duschin
took me to a park bench with a view of Santa Monica Pier at sunrise. He
told me that he was so glad that I came into his life, that I was the
reason he was able to be truly happy again, and that he could never
fully repay me for that, but he would try every single day to show me
how much I mean to him, forever and ever. Then he got down on one knee
and pulled a ring box out of his pocket, and asked me to marry him. Of
course I said yes!
Duschin and I were sealed for time and all eternity on March 17th 2012,
in the Mesa, Arizona temple. On each of our the tables at our wedding reception, we had books of compiled highlights from our LDSMingle chat transcripts. They were a hit! Everyone was talking about them, and many of our guests were glued to them the whole time!
Well, I still had to stick around in Phoenix for
the end of the school year, and as I write this, am currently just a few
weeks shy of being able to move out to Las Vegas for good. Duschin and I are so
happy together, and can't wait to be able to finally live together and start a
Thank you, LDSMingle, for providing the vehicle for meeting my soul mate!

I met her from a profile match. We started to IM, but then exchanged phone #'s. We talked on the phone for an hour then agreed to meet for dinner. The dinner lasted 5 hours. We had fun talking and laughing...that was March 21st. We have seen each other every day since.
A user messaged me and we began corresponding. After about a week we decided to meet. A week later we were dating and a month later we were talking marriage and soon thereafter got engaged. Now we are planning on getting married in June!! He is my perfect match, and I met him here on LDS Mingle.
I met my wife on-line on lds mingle. We chatted a couple of times on lds mingle and we really liked one another so we exchanged our Skype info and used video conference. The computer and the web cam was on almost 24/7 for roughly 3-4 months. I cooked, did laundry ect...all on webcam. The only time the webcam was not on was when we were at work... I moved to Provo, Utah all the way from New Brunswick Canada. We got married in the Medford Oregon Temple 3 months later. We are both super happy. We are now living in the state of Washington... Utah was way to dry for my taste. We are planning to move to Canada in British Columbia, but first need to get the paper work done for my wife...
After my divorce my children subscribed me to LDS Mingle and after about one year I met Debra and began a 6 month online discussion. She lived in St Louis area and I lived in Joplin Mo. On the 14th of March I drove up to meet her. We went to the St Louis Temple to find it closed for cleaning. At that point I turned to her and gave her a CTR ring and asked her to marry me. (I had spoken to her daughters earlier about a ring and they told me she had her mothers ring she was going to wear). She said yes and we plan to get married as soon as possible.
When Sonata7 first wrote me on Mingle, she lived in California and I lived in Washington state. We thought we might be friends or pen pals at best. We met as she drove through my town on a visit to see her son's family. Soon, we were talking on the phone almost daily, and when a job transfer took me clear to the east coast, we kept talking. Then began the flying back and forth to date. Because of the distance, we both almost gave up more than once.
Eventually, we knew the miles didn't matter in comparison to the love that was unfolding. She moved here in October so we could "date more steadily." She'll be my steady date... and wife... as of March 17, 2012.
We both offer our encouragement and prayers on behalf of all Single Adults in the church, and especially the friends we met on LDS Mingle. May God grant you the richest desires of your heart.
