CatholicMingle sent me an e-mail stating that one of the four said "yes' and if I did then I would be informed--to make a long story short--I picked Bill, Jr and found my soul-mate. He lives in SD and I in MO so we are planning and working to be together by the summer. Thank God the broken road brought us to each other...
We'd like to thank CM for bringing both of us together. Last April 2006 I joined Catholic Mingle in hopes of finding someone to simply share my life with, who I could get along with and someone who would accept me and love me for being me! About two weeks into my membership, I had met two great guys. I thought we had lot in common. They lived in a different country. After spending quite a bit of time talking with the first and second guys, I had hopes that a relationship would form, but I knew deep down that it wasn't the "right" one yet. While still talking with the first two, another guy sent me a smile. I sent him a smile too. After that, we started the chatting and introduction and then it formed into a friendship, which he never failed to send me text messages and cards everyday. On occasions, he even sent flowers too. Since then, we’ve keep on instant messaging each other every day. From there, love bloomed even though we seen each other only on web-cam. Until one day, he told me that he will be coming to the Philippines to meet me.
When we finally met in person in March of 2007 at the airport, I knew I was going to spend the rest of my life with this man. We went from the airport to his hotel and on the second day he met my relatives in Manila. Then we went to Samar so he could meet my parents and ask for my hand in marriage. They entrusted me to him and gave us their blessings. We are truly blessed that our relationship has grown beyond our expectations. We are now engaged and planning to marry. We want our family on CM to know that CM has brought us so much joy. Never in our wildest dreams did we think that one day we would meet. Meeting Charles is the best thing that ever happened to me. I would like to say this to other members, you never know who is just around the corner. I had my doubts because of what happened in my past and it never came to my mind that CM would lead me to my honey. I never believed this would happen to me, but it did. My boyfriend is wonderful and I wouldn't have known it, had I chose not to smile and ignore him.
God Bless you all! Keep the faith, pray, and don't give up hope that you may find your match on Catholic Mingle. Even if it does take a while, all you need is patience. Thank you so much CM staff for bringing people from all walks of life together. Great work guys!
My One and Only Love
It has taken me a long time to find my one true love. If it was not for my signing on to Catholic Mingle, I would probably still be searching for her. I had met some really nice women here, however, one in particular caught my eye; "lovely_me005." She was much younger than me, yet I still decided to send her a "smile. Never in my wildest dreams did I think she would "smile" or
even answer back. I was pleasantly surprised when I did receive a "smile" back from her and one day when I saw her online at CM, I sent her an IM. I
introduced myself and we chatted for a while. This led to other IM's. both on and off CM. As I got to know Lyndy, I knew that she was the one who I had been searching and praying to find. She was the one who I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. A simple "smile" developed into a friendship
and then into a loving relationship. I traveled to the Philippines in March to meet the one who I wanted to be my wife and it felt so good to finally be right there next to her and be able to hold her in my arms. Lyndy was everything I thought she would be and more. Two days later, I proposed to my beloved and she accepted. We then traveled to where her parents live and I asked them for their daughter's hand in marriage. Which I am happy to say they granted. I petitioned to bring Lyndy to the U.S. on a K-1 Visa and it took
nearly a year before she received her approval. On March 7, 2008 my beloved arrived in the U.S. and on May 9, 2008 we were married. I thank the good Lord Jesus for hearing and answering my prayer and bringing Lyndy into my life. I also thank Lyndy for loving me the way that she does. She truly is my one and only love and I am hers.

Six months ago I vowed to never attempt online dating again...infact, I never went on the computer for six months until now. I actually didn't know there was a Catholic site of internet dating until I did a search on a whim....had I only known earlier I probably could have saved a lot of heart ache. I requested a match of 80% or better ....thinking in my mind I had set my standards way too high....I wasn't on your site two days and met Pete (Lucky8). He was a 91% match and though I was skeptical...I put my faith in God, and we have been seeing each other ever since. He is the most kind, sincere, honest, and "together" gentleman I have met in my lifetime....Where we go from here, and what the future brings, I can only say that God has a special plan and it feels so right. Thank you Catholic Mingles for providing a service of bringing hopeful Catholics together.

Hi all, I am pleased to say I really did find somebody amazing through CM. I had been a member for 2 years, and beyond finding the great guy that I did, I also made a couple good friends, one in particular, what a story, I live in Calgary, AB, Canada and he was from SD, USA. We IM'd for a while and that led to phone, and had quite an adventurous summer, which only really prooved to me that distance doesn't matter, if you have the ambition (and to be noted, it was really out of my usual "comfort" zone, to travel that far and such). We are still close friends and he has been like a big brother to me. And a spiritual adviser, kind of. Well let's just say I learned alot from him.
But the real story is, upon finding this friend with whom the "chemistry" and practicality didn't work, months later I hadn't bothered to log in, for a long while.
But one night, mostly bored, I decided to (and yes, WOW, does timing ever have everything to do with it ... God's timing that is ... ). I did an "advanced search" in my area and there was a new member, right here in Calgary (believe me, this is kinda rare!). I smiled at him, no big hopes, just smiling cause we were in the same city. Usually I am more apt to consider someone who COMPLETELY fills out there profile, which, he did not :P.
But all the same, I smiled. What insued was alot more smiles. And of course eventually chatting (common CM'ers, you know how it goes ... ), moved to phone calls, and an eventual meet :D.
We have been dating for 3 months now and it's all good! Sorry I don't have a really fast track miracle story, but we are very happy and enjoying the journey of this growing frienship and romance.
What I would like to say to other members ... is, you never know. I had my doubts and didn't ever go hard with an assumption that CM would lead me to my soul mate, but I think it just may have, even though I didn't believe it possibly could. My boyfriend is wonderful, and I wouldn't have known, had I chosen not to smile, even though his profile wasn't volumous in words. (But still, you really should fill it ALL out, girls need to hear that kind of stuff!).
God Bless you all, wish you to keep the faith (of course that has to be number 1), and don't give up hope that you may find your match on here, even if it does take a while, and some patience!
Thanks for the good times, Amen.
Hello Dearest Catholic Mingle Family:
We'd like to thank CM for bringing both of us together. I've met Fred the end of August 2006 in my most difficult time in my life. We've been IM each other every day since. Everything about him seems to be too perfect and I was pretty much guarded all the time because of my previous relationships. Fred has opened my eyes to a new meaning of trust, love, and spiritual happiness. I am so thankful and blessed that we were brought together by Faith and a lot of prayers.
When we finally met in person October 2006 soon as I saw him at the airport I knew I was going to spend the rest of my life with this man. We went from the airport to mass and that meant a lot to both of us.
I am truly blessed that our relationship has grown beyond our expectations and we plan to marry. We want our family on CM to know that CM has brought us so much joy.
Never in my wildest dreams I'd meet such a wonderful man who is strong in our Faith, and perfect for whom I was looking for as a soul-mate.
Thanks again Catholic Mingle . . . . . .

Last summer I joined CatholicMingle in hopes of finding someone to simply share my life with, who I could get along with and someone who would love me for me!
About two months into my membership I had met two really great guys. One I thought I had a lot in common with, and another lived in a different country. After spending quite a bit of time talking with the first person, I had hopes that a relationship would form, but I knew deep down that it wasn't the "right" one.
Shortly after, I came upon Brian's profile. He seemed to be a perfect gentleman, intelligent, caring, and he was in a different career than mine (I constantly dated people in my line of work and it never lasted). We also matched 100%. On a whim, I used his screen name to send him an instant message on another messenger and he replied back. At first, I thought we would just be good friends, and suddenly, out of nowhere, this incredible romance bloomed.
Meeting Brian is the best thing that has ever happened to me! Currently we are still making the long-distance situation work but I have every intention of moving to be with him next year. I just wanted to share my success story because I felt as if I had really met some great guys, and could see "potential" in some of them. However, when you TRULY meet the one you're supposed to be with, you will know for sure! Thank you to the CM website for helping to bring us together, and good luck to all still searching for The One! God bless.
