Match made in Heaven

Match made in Heaven

I, like many of you, have surfed the internet dreaming of love and hoping for that ultimate connection with someone. I tried an array of different dating sites, but nothing serious every developed. In the summer of 2003, I was transferred to Tokyo, Japan (I'm a member of the United States Air Force) and thought my chances of meeting and falling in love with a nice Catholic woman just got worse. Still, in the fall of 2003 I joined Catholic Mingle out of curiousity and began to make friends. On December 7, 2003 I came across a profile that sparked my interest and decided to send her a smile. To my surprise, the next day I found a reply waiting for me in my Catholic Mingle box thanking me for my smile and a conversation ensued. At first we took it slow, becoming friends and talking every couple of weeks or so. Around March 2004 however, something changed. We started digging a little deeper and began asking thought provoking relationship questions....and it was amazing. We began e-mailing more everyday and then the phone calls began. We were surprised by how quickly our relationship progressed after that. We found that we agreed on all of the significant issues and loved everything about one another.

In June of 2004 I flew from Tokyo, Japan to Cleveland, Ohio to meet her and her family. Talk about traveling to the ends of the Earth to find someone! But guess what? It was love at first sight! (We think it was actually love before first sight!) Since then, she's traveled to Japan and from there we traveled together to see Beijing and the Great Wall of China.

This past Christmas I traveled home once again and on New Year's Eve asked her to marry me- and she said yes! Our wedding is being planned for July 2, 2005 after my return to the States. We're also planning a move to South Bend, Indiana where I am scheduled to begin teaching at the University of Notre Dame. We couldn't be happier and we are so thankful to Catholic Mingle for allowing us the opportunity to meet each other. Thank you so much and to all of those still searching.....don't give up, it can happen to you too!

God Bless,
