How did you meet? What was your first date like? Give us all the details!
We had seen each other on two other dating sites, but it wasn’t until we “matched” on ChristianMingle that we realized this was more than just a coincidence. We met for the first time in the beautiful snowy mountains of Tehachapi, California at my parent’s home. My best friend’s family was visiting so that the kids could play in the snow. David was in town getting coffee and I told him he should come on up; he lived an hour away, so to have him so close and to not see him was unthinkable. So up he came. It was a magical meeting. We clicked immediately and that was it. We have been a couple ever since.
Describe the moment you knew it was true love!
Wow, so many little things led up to the “aha” moment. First and foremost, we were both Christians with a strong faith, only made stronger by the trials and tribulations we went through early in life. Beyond that, he was an amazing father. Dedication to family is so important to both of us. But I think I really knew when he said to me, “I prefer it cold. When you’re cold, you can always put on a sweater or something. When it’s hot, you can only get so naked.” I had said the same thing forever! That’s when I knew it was true love.
What advice would you give other ChristianMingle members?
I think when you are first starting out, be open and honest from the beginning. Don’t fall into the trap of trying to be what you think someone wants you to be. If you both are yourselves from the beginning, then you know you are falling in love with the real person and you know that you, yourself, are being real, too. The most important piece in a relationship is communication. Don’t keep things bottled up. Things tend to explode when you do that. Faith in the Lord and each other – that’s my advice.
