I had been on dating sites before, but never met the right one. Bob contacted me on ChristianMingle. We corresponded for a couple of weeks via email and text messages. We lived within ten minutes of each other, but had never met. We even shopped at the same grocery store! Our first date was a nice dinner. I found Bob to be enjoyable, good company, easy to talk to and handsome. We found out that we liked to do the same things and go to the same places for weekend retreats. We went on another date two nights later and went for a long walk after dinner. Bob was so easy to talk to and a great listener. I really liked him, right from the start.
Three months, later Bob had to have an emergency quadruple bypass at just 53 years of age. I have nursing experience and it felt like the Lord brought us together to help each other through this. I stayed with him for six weeks after his surgery as his nurse/ caregiver. When he was strong enough to manage on his own, we continued to date and grow stronger in our relationship.
We had our one year anniversary on April 27, 2014. Bob took me to a nice restaurant and he proposed to me that evening. I said “yes” without hesitation. I really feel that God used the internet to bring us together. Bob is strong in the areas where I am weak, and vice versa. I am so happy Bob found me on ChristianMingle and that ChristianMingle is available for Christ-minded singles. Thank you, ChristianMingle for allowing God to use your site to bring Bob and me together!
