I met John through your site in November of 2012, and it was the most incredible whirlwind romance! We had our first date on November 28, 2012, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. We fell in love on that date (we even said I love you on our second date two days later), got engaged the following January and were married on May 18, 2013.
I know it is unusual to marry someone after dating less than six months, but it was obvious that we were each other’s soul mates. God used ChristianMingle to bring us together, and I am so thankful. I can’t see how we would have met had it not been for the site. We did not live near each other, so our paths would likely have never crossed. Interestingly enough, we almost didn’t even meet on the site. John did not want to pay for a subscription, but God kept nagging at him, so he finally gave in and joined. When John first emailed me, I almost didn’t respond because he lived more than an hour away. I didn’t think that there was any way a guy would drive that distance for me, but something told me to answer him. It was the best decision of my life. It was unreal how well our conversations flowed from that very first email. My heart would even flutter every time I saw a new message from him. There is so much more to our story, but it would take a book for me to include everything.
All I know is that in October of 2012 as I was doing a bible study on the Book of Ruth, I prayed that God would send me my Boaz. One month later, he showed up on the ChristianMingle website. Thank you for being such a wonderful tool God can use to answer our prayers.
