Very happy, relaxed Christian couple smile after marrying in Florida

Mirtes and Paul hit it off right away

I just want to say Thank You for having this wonderful website.

I was living in Florida when suddenly I met my wonderful husband, Paul, on your site. He lived in New Jersey.

We started talking by Cafe messages, then emails, then we started talking on the phone.

In less than a month I flew to New Jersey to meet Paul; it was so wonderful, we hit it off right away. We used to fly back and forth every month to see each other.

Paul is beyond what I ever asked or prayed for, God is so faithful and cares so much about us. We are tremendously blessed and so happy that we found each other.

We got engaged in April 2006 and got married on September 9th, 2006 in Florida. Then of course I moved to New Jersey.

Thank you for opening the way for us. I always tell people about

Couple dating on April Fools receive blessing as they marry

Bethany and her husband are 'completely happy'!

My husband and I met on in February 2005. We talked in messages, then emails, and finally phone calls.

My husband has family who live close to me, so he came down one weekend in March 2005 and stayed with them. That's when we met in person. We've been together ever since.

We started officially dating on April Fools Day of 2005 and he proposed to me in June of that summer. Yes, we only officially dated 3 months!

We were engaged for over a year, and were married this past summer on July 15th. We are now approaching 9 months of marital bliss! We are completely happy!

The wedding was a dream and now I'm married to my best friend whom I met through Christian Cafe.

Not the moment for smiling :)

After joining the Cafe several years ago, I met a few 'virtual' guys (you know, the type who don't seem to ever get around to agreeing to meet!).

In March 2002, just before Easter, I was about to delete my profile, but decided to have one last look. But this time, only for guys in Montreal (my city).

carruthers545 was the only Montreal male listed as *NEW*, so I clicked. He sounded like a nice, well read and interesting man, so I wrote him a quick note, asked him to read my profile and write back if interested. He did!

We both love films, and he had seen my favorite film, 'Wings Of Desire' (German, B&W), so I was impressed. He told me he felt the same way upon hearing that I liked a 'foreign' film.

We agreed to meet on March 28, which was Maundy Thursday. I skipped a church service to go on this blind date. My Pastor knew (I work in the church office), and he said it was OK (*wink*).

We met for a drink at a local pub. My husband doesn't actually drink, and I have but an occasional glass of wine, but it was 'neutral' ground.

We met just outside, around 7:30 p.m., the snow lightly falling around us. During our 'drink', I remember thinking my face hurt from smiling so much.

The one thing that impressed each other with that very first night was that we both knew what 'Dialectic Progression' is, and we both thought it was an interesting theory that could never work without God!

The bar was smoky, so we went for a walk around the block and looked at old houses; we still like to do that. We actually ran into my Pastor and his wife (on their way home from the Maundy Thursday service I had skipped!) that very first night, and they liked my husband right away (as did I).

After a few months of dating, he took me to meet his Aunt (his mother's sister) who lives nearby and she checked me out for his Mum (who lives in another part of the country).

We got engaged just before Valentine's Day the next year and married that June 28. We even catered our own wedding, of just 50 close friends and family!

We are very happy collecting art and antiques, old books and movies, and getting to know Montreal. We enjoy having parties for our friends and trying out new gourmet recipes at said parties. We also love dreaming and planning which wonderful old house we will one day buy and fix up together!

It turned out we only lived about 20 blocks apart in this very large city, but we likely would never have connected without, so we wanted to finally write and say a proper thank you., thanks for being there for people of like mind and like faith to connect in this great big world!

God used the Internet to bring Chie and Tim together

Happy Christian couple with their new baby cuddle on the couch in front of Christmas tree

Chie, Tim and their 5 month old daughter, in Ohio

I am writing to share with you how my husband and I met at In August 2005, I was living in New York City when I joined

I got a lot of messages from different people, but one guy named Tim caught my attention because of his Cafe message, sharing his testimony, and how he wants to be a missionary someday.

I have a very high interest in missions too, so I responded to Tim's message.

A few days later, we wrote to each other again, then we began calling each other on the phone. Sometimes when you say you won't do something, you find yourself doing it! That's how our relationship began.

I never thought I'd be ready for a relationship since I had just moved to New York, and came from the Philippines. Tim still had another semester in college.

After 2 months corresponding online, Tim flew to New York to meet me. We prayed that we would do God's will. It's hard to think how God uses even the Internet for us to meet the one He has for us.

I flew back with Tim to Indiana, got married after 2 months, on a cold snowy day. Now, we're living in Ohio and enjoying our time with our 5 months old daughter.

We're still looking forward to someday working together in the mission field.

Thank you from our hearts and may God continue to bless more people through

We pray that God will continue to richly bless your website, so that through your website many couples that have been praying for mates can find each other.

"Cafe Baby" #3 :) we need to thank you once again. My husband and I just celebrated our 5th year of marriage.

We met online during the spring of 2001 and face to face in the fall. We were engaged on New Year's and married in April 2002. I was in Indianapolis and John was in West Virginia at the time.

Now we are in Georgia while he is serving our country. We have been apart the 5 years more than we have been together while he does his duty but since we found our soul mate in each other it is all worth while. The toughest times is when I know he is in harm's way, but our deep faith sustains us.

Thank you for helping me find the one I can call my personal hero and the father of our beautiful girls. 5 years and counting!

Terri met Adam, the man of her dreams

Cute couple site by the waterfall

Terri and Adam truly complete each other

After much prayer and thought, and a good friend telling me about, I decided to open a door that God seemed to be pushing me towards.

After a very short time online, I met the man of my dreams!

Adam and I met on April 9, 2006, when I saw his profile and sent him a Quick Message. I never thought that my message would lead to anything more than casual conversation, especially since I had only been a paid member of the site for a week or so.

I left for a mission trip and when I returned there were several messages from Adam asking what happened to me. I knew this guy was different. We exchanged home email addresses soon after I returned and about a month into emailing he asked for my phone number.

On June 10th, Adam made the 4 hour trip from Upstate New York (where he lives) to Southern New Jersey (where I live) for our first face to face meeting. We had an instant connection!

We now take turns driving the four hours each weekend because we love being with each other. We truly complete each other. We began talking of marriage in July and were formally engaged on September 23. We will be married on July 7, 2007 in my home State. We can't wait to begin the next stage of our lives together!

We are both grateful to the Cafe and to our heavenly Father for the wonderful opportunity we were given to get to know each other slowly and in a safe way. Thank you God! In Him.

Stephen and Emily had a wedding in New Zealand, too!

I just wanted to share my Testimonial and thank you for creating this site.

She was originally from New Zealand and I was in Toronto, Canada. At the time of our meeting on Emily had just moved to San Francisco, California. We started messaging each other through and then quickly moved to phone calls. We were hitting it off rather nicely.

We flew out to see each other several times until Emily decided to move to Toronto. We prayed about our relationship and we knew it was meant to be. We fell in love and were married the following year.

We had two, yes TWO, weddings half way around the world in ONE weekend! One in New Zealand, where Emily's family is from, on July 1st. 2005, and one in Toronto, Canada, where my family is from, on July 4th. 2005.

We had people all over the world attend our weddings! People from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, England, and the United States came to see us get married. It was a great weekend wedding and wonderful experience. We loved it. Who says Internet dating doesn't work? Ha! And it doesn't matter how far apart you may live.

Last year my wife and I bought a house and we live in a small town outside Toronto. We are extremely blessed. And as the saying goes, we are living happily ever after! Thank you Jesus and thanks

Mick and Lita were married for nearly 2 years.

Lita and I met on here in September 2003. I phoned her the first time in November 2003. We met in person and became engaged when I went over to Hong Kong (Lita was from the Philippines) in February 2004. Because of some difficulties we decided to marry in January 2005.

Lita's cancer returned and for the next 2 years she underwent surgery and many chemo sessions until she died late last year. Had it not been for, I would have never known Lita, and a large part of my life would have been missing. I know what some think of online dating/searches, but I do know in our case it worked. My life has truly been blessed and changed by

Laci and Josh will be married in August

We're getting married! I have yet another wonderful testimony to add to your page. I signed up for your site after hearing about it on a Christian radio station in Fresno, California.

They were holding a contest where they'd pick 8 local guys and 8 local girls that created a profile on, then would treat us all to a baseball game where we'd meet a new single each inning.

I created my profile and started browsing just for fun, telling myself that I was never going to actually pursue anything. Almost immediately I stumbled upon Josh's profile.

I was surprised to see that his writing style reflected his personality, and that we sounded very similar. In a moment of bravery, I sent him a Cafe message.

To my surprise we hit it off immediately. Every day I looked forward to his funny and in-depth messages. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Josh wasn't afraid to bring up important topics, and was straightforward about what he wanted from life and from a relationship.

We progressed to phone calls, and though he lived almost 6 hours away, we decided that it was worth the distance to meet in person and see if this was a relationship we wanted to pursue further.

In August we had our first official date at Disneyland. I brought my best friend and her boyfriend, and we had a wonderful day filled with laughter and fun.

It was amazing how comfortable Josh and I immediately felt with each other, and my best friend approved wholeheartedly. Feeling that God had blessed us in finding each other, we began making frequent trips between Fresno, California and Orange County, California to continue to get to know each other.

It was a difficult time for both of us, but allowed us to take things slow and really develop a strong foundation. Soon, a friend of mine emailed me to say that she was moving to Orange County and needed a roommate, so after a lot of prayer, I decided to make the move, and I've never regretted it since!

On April 18, my birthday, my wonderful Josh led me on a scavenger hunt to find my presents on the campus of our church. The last clue led us to the prayer chapel where we had once shared our first kiss, and as I walked through the door, there were our entire families gathered with cameras.

With a smile, Josh dropped to one knee and pulled out a ring, asking me to marry him with tears in both our eyes!

We are so incredibly thankful that we both took a chance and joined We would never have found each other without your help, and every day I thank God for that.

We'll be getting married in August, and I'll be sure to tell all my single friends about you!

On February 27, 2006 Anna and I met for the very first time in person. I was so excited to meet Anna. She was a very beautiful woman, but an even better person.

A special thanks to for making the impossible possible.

We got married on August 19, 2006 in Jakarta, Indonesia, on Anna's birthday. Anna got her visa in March and arrived to Canada to be with her husband on April 18, 2007.

Thank you Jesus! Now, the miracle is complete! Amen.

Our divine story! Dear, It is with great joy I share with you that through your site, Ken and I were able to meet, fall completely in love, and commit to spend the rest of our lives together!

I cannot thank you enough for the privilege of being a part of this Christian network of singles.

From the moment Ken and I began our conversations, I knew this was different. We connected on so many levels right from the start, and within a few short weeks, we both knew this was a match truly made in heaven.

Ken asked me to marry him on April 26th and we are planning a wedding for November 10th of this year. I thank God every day for the amazing blessing Ken has been in my life, and I cannot wait until we are together for a lifetime.

Although I was myself skeptical about the possibilities of a long distance relationship, I can now say with confidence that when God is at the center, anything is possible (Phil 4:13). We are proof that God answers prayers for He surely answered all of mine when He first put this site in my path and then delivered my precious fiance to me.

Thank you for providing an avenue for believers to seek out other believers in the pursuit of a Christ-centered relationship. I couldn't be happier and I wanted to share with you our amazing love story.

Again, thank you for providing a great way to bring Christian singles together. I was able to find the most amazing man I have ever known, and for that I will be forever grateful.

Thank you so much.

 I never expected to actually meet someone through Christian Cafe.  

After all, I am 55! But God has used the Cafe to bring the most wonderful man into my life. He loves Jesus with all of his heart as do I. AND we live 1372 miles apart but those details can be worked out later. Our God is a BIG God!

For now, we are both removing our profiles so we can concentrate on the possibilities before us! IF this ends where we are both hoping it to, you will be the first to know!

Thank you Christian Cafe!

 I am leaving because I am getting married.  

In December 2006, I found Bruce's profile, and sent him a wink. I liked his profile, and thought we would have a lot in common. I also liked the idea that he lived just across the Long Island Sound in Bridgeport, Connecticut which is easily reachable by ferry. Bruce answered my wink with a Cafe message, and I immediately could tell that he had a sense of humor.

We corresponded for two weeks, then spoke on the phone. That first conversation lasted two hours, and my sides hurt from laughing so hard. This was a man who really brought joy into my life!

We finally met in person on New Year's Day, and Bruce proposed two weeks later. We are getting married in August.

I am grateful to for bringing us together. We were both praying to meet a Christian partner, and God used your channel to accomplish this task.

I was initially very skeptical about Internet dating, but my advice to everyone is to include God in all you do, and for most of us that includes both the Internet and relationships. Trust God - He has a plan for us all and cares passionately about us and the deep desires of our hearts. Be Prayerful, be Beautiful. You are made in God's own image. And be careful.

We met at the beginning of March 2007 and we knew that it was God's will for us to be together. We are so in love it's hard to imagine life without each other. He is my dream come true.

We will be getting married this August 2007. This will be only 6 months after we met but we both love God and have been born again for over 20 years. We know that we have added to each other spiritually, emotionally, financially and socially.

My fiance will be relocating to my area and joining my church soon and we are both so excited. He has already taken a vacation to come meet me, my pastor, family and friends. Everyone loves him including my dog!
