Success Stories: 2013: Kelsey & Justin
Last Thanksgiving, I got the random urge to join ChristianMingle despite the fact I was pretty skeptical of online dating. I was tired of dating just to date, so I thought that I might as well give the website a shot. That night, I asked God to give me the man I was supposed to marry, via ChristianMingle.
My friends and family thought it was strange and I honestly thought it was going to take me months and months to find him. Two days after joining, on November 27, 2011, Justin contacted me. We met on December 2nd, and although I had the worst pasta ever on our first date, he amused me enough to go on a second. It didn't take long for me to realize he fit every single oddly specific item I had on my unwritten checklist! I told everyone after only a couple of months that I was going to marry him, no matter how crazy it sounded. He was perfect for me, and there is no way we would have ever found each other if God hadn't brought us together through ChristianMingle. On September 15, 2012 on the beach at sunset, he proposed and I said yes!
Our wedding is set for July 20, 2013 and I could not be happier! I feel so lucky and so blessed to have him in my life forever. Thank you, ChristianMingle!

Q&A from Kelsey & Justin
- Q. What is your advice to ChristianMingle members hoping to find God's match for them?
- A. I think my advice to other users is to pray consistently throughout the process and trust God to give you the person He's picked for you. He has a plan for your life and even if it's nothing like you imagined, you can be rest assured it's perfect. Also, if you feel like God put someone in your life, He probably did. So even if you've only been together a short period of time, don't get caught up in how that looks to other people. Because when you know, you know. I can say that with 100% confidence.
