I signed up for ChristianMingle because my brother talked me into it. I committed to try it for 30 days, but no more because I was not into social networking sites and online dating was definitely out of my comfort zone. However, I also knew that if I was going to give online dating a try, ChristianMingle was the best option as I wanted to meet men that also put God first.
At the end of July 2012, I received my first smile from Charles. We began emailing back and forth every day. He gave me his telephone numbers after two weeks of emailing, but I was scared to call him so it took me another two weeks to work up the courage. Once I finally called him all of my nervousness seemed to fade away.
We met for the first time on September 1st for lunch. It felt like I had known him forever, but we both still had butterflies. Even though we lived three hours apart, and could only see one another on weekends, we made an effort to spend almost every single weekend together. Charles proposed to me on his birthday, February 1, 2013. I said “Yes!” and he told me later that he knew I was going to be his wife when we first met. We got married on August 10, 2013.
We really wanted to share our story because we both believe this was God’s plans for our lives, and that we never would have met if God didn’t nudge me to go onto your website. I know it was God because there is no way I would have ever done that on my own. So, thank you ChristianMingle from both of us and our families!! I remember seeing your commercial on TV and thinking to myself that doesn’t really happen!!! But it does, and it happened to us!!
