In June 2009, I looked at the Christian Dating For Free Web site, out of curiosity mostly. I was wondering what kind of person would be on the site. I had not dated since my divorce, 8 months before, (I had been married for 23 years) and was finally ready to meet someone nice. I was looking to make new friendships maybe have someone to go out to dinner or to the beach or concerts with. I set up an account and the next day decided to browse the people who were online. I read through a few bios and then one stuck out so strongly to me. It was as if I was reading my own story. I sent a quick message but he was off by the time I sent it. A day later, on a Friday, Greg sent a message that he was going to be in my area in a couple of hours. (He lived and worked two hours away). He was heading to the very same event that I was attending with a girlfriend of mine. We agreed to meet. He was charming and asked me out for a date the next evening on Saturday. We talked for many hours and found that we had so many things in common! We met for church on Sunday and lunch. We were both smitten! Texts and phone calls and he drove the two hour drive every weekend to see me! We Got engaged that Christmas and planned to marry in July. He had a pretty severe injury at work and we had to postpone our wedding. Greg had a long recovery. We toughed it out and were finally able to get married May of 2013. We are so very happy and amazed at how blessed we are to have found each other. We are each others best friend, I always tell him he is my "favorite" person in the whole world!
Thank you CDFF, for making the way to connect us.

First, Praise The Lord Jesus for His mercy and Grace during our journey. Also thank Him for His provision in our lives and bringing us together
Second, thankyou CDFF for being the tool which brought me and my newly wed bride together!
1st and Last & 1st kiss at the alter!
Me and Faith first started talking 3 years ago on cdff. I think what truly caught each other's attention was our love for the Lord within our profiles. We decided to exchange Skype contact details and for the first few months my beautiful wife wouldn't show her face. Eventually she did thank goodness. We would Skype and text daily, study the scriptures and pray. It wasn't always easy being in an LDR, and many challenges we had to overcome including racial stigmas, difference in cultures, trust and Faith.
Through prayer, fasting and steadfastness all these things were overcome and we met in Singapore in April 2016! Wow I remember thinking when I first seen my wife she's unbelievably more beautiful in person! After that holiday in which we was chaperoned by my new father in law, I knew I wanted to marry her!
We had never kissed, and I had the honour of being Faiths 1st and only boyfriend.
Me and Faiths sister prepared a surpise long distance proposal. https://youtu.be/4sOIyomr3nk
She said yes and we got to wedding preparations!
We got married on 21st January 2017. https://vimeo.com/200628140
Our advice would be to anyone courting on CDFF is
To the men.
Be respectful, honour God in your conversations, pray, remember that the person you are talking to is someone's daughter and more importantly a daughter of God! You wouldn't like a man speaking rudely to your daughter so don't be a hypocrite. You're one day going to be a sisters head spend this time preparing!
Pray and gaurd your heart, seek godliness not looks or charm (neither last long). From me as a man. Don't accept or give into perverted requests! If he wants "pictures" or sex before marriage he's fooling himself if he thinks he is walking in the will of God! Stay clear of these men!
From my wife: Gaurd your heart but dont imprison it, seek The Lord in all things, discern, godliness doesn't mean perfection...most brothers online are broken and imperfect, doesnt mean they dont deserve a chance..
God bless you all

I honestly thought I would never be blessed with a second chance after letting my own personal struggles and issues destroy my first marriage. In some ways I felt I did not deserve a second chance. Thankfully God is a God of second chances. In November of 2015 I had signed up for an account on cdff and within the first week I started chatting with Christine. She was amazing and had a great love for Jesus which is what I was looking for. Even though we hit it off real great, I still needed to let her know about my past struggles and about my divorce. After telling Christine my story i thought she would turn away but instead she opened her heart to me and accepted me for who I am. We have had some disagreements along the way but we have always managed to overcome the barriers in front of us. It is now Feb 2017 and in a month or so from now we will be meeting for the first time in the Philippines to formalize our wedding plans. God is an amazing God and he has blessed me so much and shown me mercy and grace by bringing Christine into my life. I find that the more we talk I fall in love with her more and more everyday.

Thank you God and CDFF for helping me to find my amazing wife. After meeting Christ
in 2012 i began walking His path and after rebuilding my life i began searching for a
beautiful christian girl to marry and start a family with. In July of 2016 i met Ana and after a few exchanges we realized we had a lot in common. We talked on phone and chatted on fb everyday.
In October i decided to travel from us to Philippines and meet Analisa. God has blessed us so much in our lives and this relationship. We were married Nov 24th 2016 and are expecting a lifelong marriage and to start a family soon by Gods grace.
Sarah & Joe Nov 2, 2016
We met on this site on the 6th of May 2016, shared a few greetings and after a couple of days exchanged our contact numbers. Since then we've never looked back on each other, after our first conversation on a cellphone we both looked forward to hear from each other more and more every single day. We talked on phone atleast twice on daily basis for long hours of conversation and texted while at work. In time we realised that had so much in common starting from the religious perspective to our future plans and goals. We believe that it is God's making and He has surely brought us together.
After a few months my husband Joe (MisterNiceGuy)came to visit me in Uganda, met my family and decided we get married on the 15th of October 2016 because we both deeply love each other. We thank you the Cdff team for the care and services you've rendered to us it's sad that we will no longer need your services since we sworn "Till death do us part" but we surely have a story about you forever. We Thank the Almighty God for the gift of Life, Grace, Patience and Love He has filled in our souls.
Joe and Sarah
