How did you meet? What was your first date like? Give us all the details!
Both Chelsea and I had tried dating others, then we made a connection on ChristianMingle. Each of us had multiple relationships dissolve to our dismay, so both of us were kind of on our last attempt to find someone through the site. Not because of any issue with the site but frustration with romantic connections in general. I had thought I had scrolled through all possible members, when I unexpectedly discovered Chelsea’s profile. I messaged her and after a little bit, she responded! However, when I got her number and called her, she said she wasn’t feeling well and later texted me to say she wasn’t sure she felt like going further with our communication. I was extremely crestfallen, but I told her that I would be glad to talk to her if she changed her mind, not expecting to hear from her again. But, a week later, she texted me and we agreed to meet at a deli. She was even more beautiful than her pictures, and I could tell she had a zest for life, a great sense of humor and, most important of all, a genuine love for Jesus. From there, we continued to go on dates and spend time with friends and family.
Describe the moment you knew it was true love!
There have been several key moments. I persevered through a time when Chelsea wasn’t sure if we were compatible, and Chelsea persevered through a time when I wasn’t sure we were compatible. But, in working through our differences, we discovered that opposites truly do attract and that our differing strengths and weaknesses worked together well as a couple called by God to love each other and love others. One particular moment that stands out is that we were taking a motorcycle class together, with Chelsea wanting to ride and me not wanting to ride. As I hopped on the motorcycle for the first time, I looked over at Chelsea and I was struck by how deeply I loved her and how blessed I was to have such an amazing, exciting, beautiful woman love me in return. That was the icing on the cake for me, as I had already arranged to propose to her, but every new day brings a fresh realization of how in love with each other we are. We are counting down the days until we are married!
