How did you meet? What was your first date like? Give us all the details!
Our first messages began back in November 2012 through ChristianMingle. We later met in 2013; it was January, right after my parents celebrated their wedding anniversary. We agreed to meet in Jacksonville, Florida since that’s where I lived. He lived in St. Augustine. I remember him calling me multiple times on the way to Ale House at “Tinseltown.” He kept saying, “Are you still en route? About how far away are you?” I was almost there and a little nervous. I knew it was just a date, but I was super skeptical about the idea of online dating. When I got there we hugged and hit off the conversation right away. One thing about Brian that I never questioned was his authenticity. He was himself from day one. We talked about a lot of different things, including family, as we snacked on a few different menu items and I sipped on my wine and he enjoyed his Margarita. After many laughs, we called it an evening and I agreed to allow him to walk me to my car. I invited him to sit in the car and we listened to a few songs. We found we had similar music taste right away.
Describe the moment you knew it was true love!
It took a long time for me, but for him it was easy. I remember he began spending more time with me and my family. One night, the words just fell out of his mouth as we sat by the fireplace in my parent’s living room. He just said, “I love you!” It was so funny because I knew he meant it. I was so thankful. Much later, by about a year, I agreed, we were in love. When I told him I loved him, it was never the same, it became simple. We were both in love!
What advice would you give other ChristianMingle members?
I would just say to follow your gut. I met a lot of people and I would always know by the second date if we were actually compatible. Always be yourself – this helps the process.
