greensingles.com!!!! Great for us crunchy women. I talked to my new husband for two months, moved closer to him for work (divine intervention if you ask me) and we were married three months later. He is my soulmate, plain and simple. We have now been together for only six months but are planning on having a baby and couldn't imagine life apart.<br><br>
Good luck to everyone!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

some friends of mine approached me a few months ago and stated that they have my next husband picked out for me. i freaked out and told them not to plan out my life...then a few weeks later, after some of my own plans weren't going so well, i changed my mind. They gladly accepted my change of heart with a "three heads are better than one" nudge...<br><br>
thanks to those three heads, i've been really enjoying my new company.

plentyoffish.com It's not my favorite site but it's where he found me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> I had a very simple profile on there but some longer, detailed ones on other sites. We emailed for a week then had a 6 hr phone call and a lunch date the day after that. We've been seeing each other every weekend with daily phone calls/emails for 8 months now.<br><br>
I did a LOT of work on myself before joining dating sites and got very clear on what I wanted and what I had to offer. I am a firm believer in the Law of Attraction and that when you are ready and clear on what you want the universe will find a way to get it to you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I found my Hubby randomly through a Yahoo group. His sister and my Mother became friends online and thought we'd hit it off. Six and a half years later, here we are.

A mutual friend of ours set us up. We lived 2 states away so we talked on the phone/email at first (pretty much every day/night for hours). We talked over the phone for over a year before we met in person <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Since we lived so far away we saw each other every few weekends for a while and then, when I knew we were going to get married, ds and I moved down to Kentucky <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I met dp on a bus from long term parking to the airport. He offered to carry my bags (he had his 5 yr old ds and I had my 2 yr old ds) and I declined, but sat next to him anyways and talked with them the whole ride. I gave him my card before he went into the airport, and told him to call me if he ever wanted to have a "playdate", lol. Obviously it was not a playdate he called for. We hit it off from the start, and 7 months later I am madly in love with him and things are great.

I was referred to him (he's a piercer/bodymod artist) by the nice lady at the woman friendly sex shop. Boy am I glad I didn't get the piercing I had originally planned to because he asked me out to dinner after he was done with my piercing and it would have been really awkward had my pants been down moments before<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

We'll be married in July. I do agree with a PP posters sentiment about becoming really clear on who I am and exactly what I want being an integral part in having found my soon-to-be-DH.

How is it going? I always wonder since you moved relatively fast (as am I) and you are already getting married. I was hoping for more updates in your thread! I just have a fearof moving too fast vs trusting my instincts.

It is exquisite. If I could have bio-engineered my perfect partner, I couldn't have done as well. We are on the same page regarding everything from food choices to politics to parenting to our styles of communication. He is a true partner in everything from household duties to parenting to friendship to intimacy and everything in between. He's my best friend, our connection is solid and deep. I love his parents and his parents love me and dd as their own grandchild. My family adores him.<br><br>
We have so much balance and honesty and so much fun! We are loving sharing a household together. It hasn't been anywhere near the challenge that I thought it might be for me personally (after having been the only adult in the home for seven years). And that's largely because we both compromise well and communicate well and are generally both pretty easy going by nature. There is so much respect, admiration and appreciation between us. And dd loves him so much! They are such great friends but she also perceives him as a parent.<br><br>
So yeah, I'm over the moon. He has proven himself in so many circumstances and so many ways to be a truly wonderful man who is gentle, thoughtful, honest, and kind. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with him!

At work! We were friends for nearly 2 years. I wasn't even attracted to him at first (he is a big man and 15 years older). But we enjoyed each others company from day 1 and were always having interesting conversations and laughing alot. He started working out at the gym and lost a ton of weight. I started to see him differently and found myself attracted to him. We've been together for almost a year now- just bought a house in Jan and have a baby girl on the way!!! We're planning to marry this year as well. He spoils me rotten and I love it. The best thing though is we always have fun no matter what we're doing. You'd think we would get tired of each other since we work together and live together but we don't. We genuinely like each other which seems to be a novel idea for married folks these days. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I just wanted to highlight these statements because its so simple but so very important!! Single mamas - don't sell yourself short!! My first marriage completely lacked all of the above. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/duh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="duh"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
