I signed up for ChristianMingle on August of last year; little did I know then that I had taken the first step to finding my soul mate. After spending some time on the site I felt like I hadn’t really encountered anyone that I could relate to; that is until I saw Fred’s profile. When I saw that he was available on the chat room, I took a leap of faith and messaged him. We seemed to get along really well, and so we decided to exchange phone numbers. When we talked over the phone, not only did I feel a really strong connection, but was so excited to find out that we had so much in common. We spoke for four hours that day and I was absolutely ecstatic!
We continued to speak on a daily basis and would video chat every evening before we went to bed. He used to always tell me that he would be the first voice I would hear in the morning, and the last voice I would hear in the evening. After having had such great conversations, we thought it was time for us to take the next step and meet in person. We met in person on November-exactly two months after we first chatted online. My friends and family didn’t quite understand why I was going to meet him, given how he lived 2000 miles away! But once we saw each other’s faces and exchanged a long embrace we knew we were meant to spend the rest of our lives together. I then returned to Michigan, but we continued to talk everyday just like we had numerous times before. In one of our conversations, Fred explained his walk with the LORD and how thankful he was for the many blessings the Lord had bestowed upon him. The more we shared, the more we continued to grow in our love for one another.
In March of this year, I decided to fly out to see Fred once again. Little did I know what he had in store for us! He took me to a really nice restaurant and to my utmost surprise, he proposed! He had hidden my engagement ring on the dessert which I thought was really sweet. On the next day we decided to take a vacation on my home state of Michigan, where we got married soon thereafter.
