I had never really given much thought to online dating, but having moved to a town where I didn’t know anyone and was working the night shift, I didn’t have much time to meet people on my own. I told myself that I would join ChristianMingle if I hadn’t met anyone by the time I turned 30, but it kept occupying more and more of my thoughts. Finally, I figured it couldn’t hurt to make a profile. The first profile I clicked on belonged to a man named Jeromy. When I started talking with Jeromy he told me his whole story up front and compassion just overtook my heart; I just had to get to know this guy. About a month after we started emailing back and forth, Jeromy made the trip down to Sioux Falls from Brookings to meet up for the first time. We texted back and forth all weekend, which made me anticipate meeting him even more.
We agreed to go to church together as our first “date.” As soon as I saw him, I had a feeling come over me like God was saying, “Here he is.” I definitely didn’t love him at first sight, but knew that someday I was going to. Later on in our relationship, we discussed the day we met and he said he had the same feelings. After a few dates, we became an official couple in June.
The next few months passed by so quickly. We saw each other every weekend, and tried to pack in as many memories as we could. Over that time we fell madly in love with each other and couldn’t imagine our lives apart. In January, Jeromy surprised me after a terrific weekend together and asked me to be his wife. Since that day, we have been planning a wedding that is set to take place on June 22, 2014.
We are so in love and I am so in awe that God can create two people who are so perfectly made for each other. We balance each other out so well and he can make me laugh like no one else. I am so excited to start my new life as Jeromy’s wife and I can’t wait to call him my husband. Thank God for leading us to each other through ChristianMingle!
