We met on ChristianMingle on May 26, 2012 and had our first date on June 2, 2012. ChristianMingle, as a website, was so easy to use. We were able to get a lot of information on our pages to really get a complete understanding of each other before we even met in person. John had been on ChristianMingle for some time and was about to delete his profile, but then I signed up and we met! I was on ChristianMingle for 20 days and John messaged me.
Our first date went very well. We went to the river and spent the day having fun in the sun. In fact, we were there for so long that we ended up getting sunburned! Afterwards, we had lunch and then sat in a park and just talked. We were both honest about what we wanted and it was much more personal than our conversations over the computer or by the phone. Ever since our first date, we’ve been inseparable. We lived 45 minutes away from each other but because of the connection that we felt, the distance was not an issue.
John proposed to me on June 5, 2012 of course I said yes! On May 18, 2013, we were married. It was such an experience. We give the Glory to God for all he has done for us. We are so blessed that ChristianMingle was available because we feel we would not have met otherwise.
