Well, I saw him here in December of '07 and we started talking for a while, but maintained friendship, for I live in Puerto Rico and he lives in Florida. It was a bit of a rough start, but we were interested. The thing is that we kept chatting until like February and then we started talking on the phone for like a month or so, but then he lost my number and I understood that he didn't want to talk anymore because he forgot to ask for it again. Time passed and we emailed each other occasionally until the end of July when we began chatting again. In July, we cleared up what had happened and its that I was supposed to send him my number and so on. We kinda closed the book on that topic, hahaha. Well, by August 17th, we started talking on the phone and hit it off way better and came to the conclusion that God doesn't place someone in your life twice especially in our circumstances and the distance between us. Well, for situations in life, he wasn't able to travel, so I traveled to Florida to visit my grandmother and he came to where I was and met me for the first time and it was like feeling alive; The funniest feeling ever. We felt a connection and he came to my church and met my grandmother and other relatives that were there. On the night before I left, he proposed because he knew that God had provided what he was asking him for and vice versa. We haven't stopped talking since and our relationship, and more importantly friendship, has grown so much stronger. God willing - we will be married in June of 2009 after my college graduation and I will be moving to Florida. We pray to God every day and give Him so much thanks because He knows who, when, and how life is going to work out for each and every one of us. I thank God because He blessed me with such a beautiful person. Pray for us and if you're in search of that special someone, put it in God's hands, it will work out for your good and the other person as well. Remember, no one can love you more than God. Keep that in mind. His love is greater and should always maintain first place, then all other things will be added to your life. God bless!

I met Psalms16 on ASC who also lives in the same city as me. We emailed each other several times and then met for dinner on 9/5/08. It was love at first sight and has been heaven ever since. We plan to spend the rest of our lives together...Thanks to ASC.

First I sent a smile to him, but he ignored it. I thought he didn't like me, but he said he went to Florida for a holiday with friends and when he returned, he sent a smile back to me. We kept chatting until he decided to visit me here in Canada. He is from Lanse, Michigan and he drove for 13 hours just to meet me. Now we like each other and love each other. We're getting married next year in April thanks to the Adventist Singles Connection. I was so happy being a part and a member of this site. Good luck!

Last weekend, my wife and I were married in a peaceful setting in a park on the lake foreshore, not far from my home. We both joined ASC last September and have drawn closer to each other. We have now combined our lives into one, thanks to this site.

Thanks to this website, a dear high school friend found me, 30 years later. We started to chat, then phone calls, and now we are dating. It has been the most wonderful thing in my life. I know God's hand was behind it all!
God works in amazing ways and I'd just like to share this story to encourage others seeking that special person just made for them.
To begin this story, I joined this site on the 1st of July of 2008 to keep a promise to one of my "extended" brothers. He and quite a few of my friends had asked me to join this site as I am very fond of traveling and meeting new people from all over the world. My brother had met the love of his life on this site and he said that even if I didn't meet that special someone that God intended for me here, he felt sure that I would make some great Adventist friends on ASC.
Well, in keeping my promise to him, yes, I did make new friends here and most unexpectedly, have been greatly blessed by God to have met the love of my life as well! I didn't join the site expecting anything more than just networking with fellow Adventists and making new friends. However, God obviously had other plans in store.
About 2 weeks after joining this site in July, Mino was online and I said "Hi" intending nothing more than just that. The chat was amazing because we found out that we had past childhood experiences that were from the same place.
After that first chat, we didn't see each other online until about a month later. That's when the chatting grew so comfortable that phone numbers were exchanged and the bud of friendship grew by leaps and bounds.
Without either of us realizing it, that friendship sprouted the seeds of love in an incredibly short space of time, but we didn't really understand it until one night, about 2 months after our first "Hello", I asked Mino why was our conversations hours long and that ending the conversations always took about an hour or more!
Suffice to say that by the end of that particular conversation on the 16th of September in 2008, we realized and understood that love had grown and that God had blessed us to be best friends first before us realizing that we had grown in love too!
God's timing is always perfect. "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart." (Psalms 37:4) As you read this story, I encourage you to keep the faith, and yes, God will answer even when you least expect to find love in your life! For some of us, this means in a fairly short period of time, but for those that are still looking, don't loose hope ... God knows exactly when to reveal the right person for you at the right time in your life!
God bless you always in all that you do and may He guide you as you meet fellow Adventists on this site.
About six months ago after careful prayer, I joined ASC with the intent to find the right mate that God had set aside for me. To make a long story short...only three women from the many hits and smiles and IM's and e-mails survived the six month subscription test I asked God for. After carefully considering my options and praying some more, I decided to take all three profiles to my mother for advice. After careful review, she stated "son, God has given you the answer, but you apparently are too blind to see it." I asked her to tell me who she thought was the answer? She said "Diane". I told her that I would ask God for a sign to prove to me that Diane was the right one for me. I told my mother that if Diane tells me she loves me first, that will be my sign. Considering that as friends, Diane stated "I have never told a man nor will I ever tell a man that I love him before he tells me first." Less than twenty-four hours later, she calls me and tells me that she loves me. Well, you can figure out the rest... who am I to disobey Gods will. I tested God and God came through. The secret is that we did not fall in love, but grew in love through the roots of our friendship and later best friends. The future is becoming history as God leads us on life's journey. I thank God for this ultimate adventure and would like to thank ASC for being a tool in Gods plan for us.

Ted and I knew each other in college just as acquaintances. He saw me on ASC and remembered me. We started writing on ASC and then phoning. A month later we saw each other and knew that there was something special. Thank you ASC!
Cherry_blossom and I met on ASC in May and discovered we were very compatible. We met in person in June and felt a strong connection to each other. We believe that God is leading our way and thus decided to unite our lives on August 10,2008 in Tyler, Texas.
Thank you ASC !

Frankblack and Talira (me) met on this site 3 months ago. Since that time, we have not stopped talking and chatting everyday about us, God, and mutual testimony of life. We have fallen in love with each other in a very romantic and honest way. We are sure our God has made everything from his will to our happiness. A week ago, we just met each other in NYC and spent 5 wonderful days together full of plans for our future, like our marriage. MAY THE LORD OF LOVE KEEP BLESSING US FOREVER!
