We started communicating on your website the end of July last year. The initial contact was by me because his dog looked almost identical to a dog that I had adopted the year before. This had been the first time I had ever gone on a singles website. Although we had a lot in common, Marty & I decided at the end of August to continue weighing our dating options and decided not to meet in person.
I cancelled my subscription with Christian Mingle; after we both tried other sites, and had a few dates that didn’t exactly turn out, I went back to Christian Mingle. On December 15 I found Marty again. We started talking and finally met on Valentines Day of this year. We brought our look-alike-dogs with us so they could meet as well. We stayed in a cozy cabin in Indiana that had a warm fire place where we sat and talked for hours about our past and our future and found that we had a lot in common: Concerts we had been to, what we like and don’t like to eat, movies we enjoy, our love for animals, travel, family, hobbies, cooking…you name it! We had so much love to give and found that we had both been praying for the same thing and God had answered both of our prayers. That is where we fell in love!
Later, he came to Michigan to meet my family and friends and I came to Tennessee to meet his in April. We went to Cade’s Cove in the Smokey Mountains where he took me by a beautiful creek and told me how much he loved me and asked me to marry him. His kindness, morals, ethics, tenderness, affection, love, caring and his belief in God and marriage is only a few reasons why I fell in love. The main reason is,he treats me better than I could have ever imagined someone treating me. I feel so happy and so lucky and it’s all thanks to Christian Mingle!
We were married on July 2, 2011 and had a reception in Michigan. We went to Biltmore Estates in North Carolina for our honeymoon. We now reside in Sweetwater, TN where We take our identical dogs for a walk every night and thank the lord they got us together. We plan on living happily ever after…God willing.
Some advice for other singles: Love knows no distance; I lived in Michigan and he lived in Tennessee. The day after the wedding, I moved to Tennessee and do not regret ever leaving my home town.
Also, if you find yourself going on dates that don’t work out, don’t get discouraged as it is God’s way of ensuring you appreciate the right one once you find them.
