After a long time, seemed to be forever, looking for that special right one, I came to the internet as a last ditch effort.

Being in cyberspace for a couple of years is a real eye opener for those of us that are honest, down to earth, not pretensive sorts. I wound up meeting so many liars and people that pretended to be someone other than what they were, what ever that was is still a mystery to me. And of course there have been the obligatory theives. It is enough to crush those with high and unending hopes. Jumping from site to site hoping to find someone that was at least honest proved to be a fruitless search. Well there were the occasionl exceptions to the apparent rule.

When I was really disgusted and ready to give up finally and for all time, praying to God and wondering what was going to happen, she came out of nowhere. I can not explain it. I only know that I have found the one for me. She dropped from the Match Doctor sky and landed in my hard drive. We seem to be a perfect match, not perfect people mind you, just a perfect match. I have never felt like this about anyone before and I have to keep checking to make sure that it is real and not just a dream.

Thank you Match Doctor for all you hard work. Also I appreciate the forums that you have instituted for us too. For those of you that are having a hard time I say don't give up. You never know when or where she or he will come along. I spent 30 years looking and being alone. But it has all come to an abrupt and joyful halt. The future looks as bright as the rising sun.

Well it will be next fall sometime. I guess I'll have to post it in the general section and see who comes. After this was thirty years in the making so it is quite a life changing moment for me. Match Doctor rocks.

I've been really disappointed by the responses i've gotten. people haven't even READ my ad! I've been on here a while and they've either lived too far away or been not what i'm looking for and I've been here for about two years! I'm seriously considering taking myself off! I just don't want to do this anymore. I am re-evaluating how much i want an internet date. I'm not bad looking, so the product isn't defective, the market isn't bad. I responded to a few ads, but they never responded back.

Good morning.
God bless you. :-)
Thank you for your words. Encouragement can be a funny thing.
Often we can be encouraged by hopeful yet hollow words.
This sort of encouragement, like the words, is hollow.
But encouragement based on real-life experiences is full + lasting.
I pray you both enjoy a remarkable + blessed life together. :-)
In His love,
Tom Legge

I looked at your profile. You are a pretty young lady. You appear to have your head on straight & are up front about your relationship with God. You are very clear that you are not interested in a man who wants to party. Those are all good things as far as being honest. Those are not the kind of things that you drop on someone after talking to them for 6 months.

Now, these are the things that may be strikes against you. They are not bad things, just may be drawbacks for a man your age. You say you don't have children nor do you want children. That may be a con instead of a pro. You may be a bit too specific about appearances. You are very clear that you want a tall man with hair & a clean shaven face. What if there is a great Christian man your age, but he is bald? Are you willing to toss them out of the ballpark? Are all of the things on your wish list set in concrete? If not, you might want to reword your profile.

I wish ya luck. You are very young to be missing out on love & giving up.

Please don't take these comments as criticism. Just trying to give ya some helpful hints.

Seal.. congrats to you and your lady

I understand completely.. because that is almost exactly the way it happened with me and my partner. No words can expalin it... you just have to experience it to fully comprehend how solid it feels.

Best wishes for many years of happiness!

Well here is an update for you all. I have just returned from a week in the Philippines, where I went to meet this lady. It has been over ten months now since we first met and she is all I had hoped for and a little more. It really seems strange that this is happening now and that it is real for the first time in my life. I now have the ardous task of dealing with a mountain of paperwork. Still I believe it will all be worth any hassell at this point. It has been a long and wonderful week to say the least. That was my first trip outside the USA and it was a very educational experience. Any way all negative factors aside she is a wonderful christian lady and I really believe that the Lord has everything to do with this relationship, as it should be. Thought I would share the good news to all of you who have wished me well and thanks for the kind words.
