(Note - I'm starting this a day early because............it's snowing here and we have been up all night with the stomach flu (just Harper so far) so while I'm still feeling okay and had a few minutes - I decided to get it on up. Plus I'm excited!)
I want to start this off by saying a few words and giving a few rules.
First of all - I don't want this to be any kind of meat market. This is an idea born out of my heart for singles and my desire for all my single friends (and all you bloggers) to find the right person. I have no idea if anything will happen out of this but I figure - I have a ton of readers all over the country - if match.com or e-harmony work - why not try this? Three couples are together after we did this last summer and two are engaged.
What my heart is that if you put your self out there and nothing happens - PLEASE do not feel rejected or deflated. The ONLY reason it doesn't work is this is NOT where God wants to you to meet that right person. But for the few people who might meet someone - PLEASE keep me updated down the road! I love to share with everyone the results and it might determine if we want to never do this again or if I want to quit blogging and start a full time matchmaking service. ha ha ha! Just kidding!
Okay - SO........
1. Link up your posts that you have written about a single friend, family member, etc. You should probably get their permission first. Tell as much (TRUTH) as you can about the person and include pictures.
2. On your link - please give info if it's a male or female and their age.
3. Please also give us the state at least that they live in.
4. All singles or friends or family of singles - browse the posts. If you find someone you think might be a good match - leave a comment telling about your self with your email.
Okay - now I have six very dear single friends who I'm going to tell about myself. I have prayed for these girls and I KNOW that there are six awesome guys out there that God has for them. If you are a guy and are interested or if you think your single friends might be interested - email me personally and I will work a little matchmaking magic. (firstname.lastname@example.org) I promise I know these girls and they are ALL amazing women!
