Ryan and I are both 27, and have never been married. We have been together for almost ten months, and engaged for a month. We plan to get married in October of this year! Ryan and I were both at a point in our lives where we wanted to settle down and share our lives with someone. Ryan was with his last girlfriend for five years, and they were even engaged before she ended things. He was very upset and took some time to grow in his relationship with God. I had also just ended a relationship with someone, shortly before I joined ChristianMingle. Although my former relationship was not as serious as Ryan’s, I knew that I was at a spot where God had prepared me to be the wife that He wanted me to be.
I decided to join for only a month to see what might happen. I talked to several great guys on the site, but never felt a tug to continue getting to know any of them. With just four days left in my subscription, Ryan sent me a “smile.”  I knew who he was because a few days earlier, I had been looking at his profile! I messaged him back, and we started to get to know each other.  With Ryan living in St. Joe, Missouri and me down in Joplin, Missouri, we were three hours apart. After two weeks of talking, we decided to meet half way and see what kind of connection we had in person. I was so nervous, but the instant I saw him, I felt so comfortable! Seven hours later, I got in my car to head home. I immediately started praying because I felt so blessed! There was clearly something special going on! We are both so lighthearted and goofy and knew we were the perfect pair.
For the last ten months, we have been alternating driving to one another each weekend. I am moving up to St. Joe to be with him in three weeks, and I am so excited! God is so good and so faithful.
Thank you so much for the service you provide! One way or another, God would have gotten us together, but He used ChristianMingle to do so.
