  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Emilie & Jordan

    Prior to ever meeting Jordan, I had never dated. At the time, I felt somewhat hopeless thinking about my future husband. A few guys had shown interest in me, but I never had a peace about dating them. I went on my first date the summer after I graduated high school. The date was a disaster. I felt like...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Nicole & Chris

    When I was younger, I had this feeling that I would find the man that I would marry in college. I was not boy crazy; I really loved God. Yet this feeling never changed. However, throughout college I kept getting discouraged. Boundless was amazing and encouraging in some lonely times. I kept looking...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Amy & Josh

    A dear friend of mine introduced me to Boundless during my first year of college. I was hooked immediately. I read A Girl’s Guide to Marrying Well and Get Married by Candice Watters, which quickly became my favorite book. I was armed with knowledge of what godly relationships look like, and...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Denise & Andrew

    Oh hey, guys! Long time no see! (Long time no write?) Anyway — guess what? I’m engaged! My fiancé (weird and awesome!) Andrew and I met Easter of 2012. He lives in Alberta, Canada, but he was in Denver visiting a friend. We ended up at the same Easter potluck, and he and I started...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Nicole & Carl

    After hearing a lot about ChristianCafe.com on the Boundless podcast, I spent a few months trying the online dating scene. After many awkward, hilarious and embarrassing dates, I was about to close my profile as I got ready to move from the east coast to the west coast. That was when I received a message...
  • Blog Post: An Unexpected Love Story: Episode 313

    Listen to this week's show! Roundtable: Love Can Move Mountains Nathan wanted to get married, but the thought of a seemingly endless string of set-ups and dating dead ends had him discouraged. Then, when his buddy died in a climbing accident, Nathan was left to grieve. Slowly, God began to...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Muthani & Humphrey

    I am Zambian (not sure if many Boundless readers know or have even hear of it). I was introduced to Boundless.org in 2011 by a friend, and I found it a great tool to answer the questions I had about relationships. I became a Christian in 2006. I got saved after repeatedly hearing the Gospel preached...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Felice & Benjamin

    One day in January 2008, I was in between classes, resting in my dorm room when I read a blog by Kelly Needham called A Challenge of Surrender . Never before had I felt so led to surrender a list to God specifically telling Him my needs and wants for my husband to be. But I wrote the list and saved it...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Nancy & Brian

    I grew up reading all the age-appropriate Focus on the Family magazines , and once I went to college, I was unsure what was out there for me next. But by then, Boundless had started and had articles on finding a mate and online dating. Before setting up my online dating profiles, I reviewed Boundless'...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Kevin & Maria

    It was a cold February night. A young man sat alone in a Starbucks, nervously sipping his tea, waiting for his date to arrive. At quarter after six — just 15 minutes late — a young woman entered Starbucks. He looked up and immediately fell for her smile. Then, he with his tea and she...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Rethabile & Zamani

    We met at university (UKZN, South Africa) in 2006 through some mutual friends. However, our lives were headed in different directions at the time. I became involved in a steady relationship and so did she. We were no more than acquaintances all this time, and I never considered that anything would ever...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Roslyn & Joash

    As I listen to Birdy’s "Skinny Love," I recall a time when love songs reminded me of something missing in my life. By the time I reached 22, I was one of those girls who wanted to be in a relationship. I began to pray for my future husband and for his walk with God. A relationship...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Sue & Jon

    I met my fiancé, Jon, at Hard Rock Café. I was there with a hundred other singles for an inter-church singles event. Personally, I had felt that attending meant acquiescing to the fact that I couldn’t meet a guy on my own (ah pride!). However, since it was held on Father’s Day...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Ashley & Jeremy

    When I first met my husband, I actually thought he was simply being nice to me because he was on the church welcome team. Turns out he wasn't on the greeting team, which a laughing friend told me when I later asked her, "Do people on the welcome team usually send Facebook messages to new people...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Janelle & Tamaro

      When I was 10 years old, I dreamed about a man walking toward me on a beach at sunrise. As he walked toward me, I was walking toward him. It seemed like forever, but when we finally met in the middle, his hand reached out to me. In his hand was a single red rose. I reached for the...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Rachel & Rick

      I'll begin by flashing back a few years. I arrived in a new city fresh from the mission field, heart full of sadness from leaving, but of hope in a new relationship — my first at the age of 29. When he decided shortly thereafter that he wasn't sure enough to continue, I took...
  • Blog Post: My Engagement Story - #2

    When I first saw her online profile in January (screen name: 5280Niki) I certainly wasn’t envisioning where this would lead, though I was much better equipped to handle it than I ever had been. I knew she was beautiful, a Christian, owned a black lab and lived in Denver. That was all. She was an hour...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Joshua & Terri

    When I have a particularly long workday, I think back to the 20-hour day that was (thus far) the best of my life. And I think, You know what? I got through that fairly well; surely I can make it to 5:30 today . Wednesday, May 2, 2012, began for me in Centennial, Colo. I was one of a half-dozen...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Danette & Stephen

    As I look back on our amazing journey, I find that Stephen and I have had a relationship that puts the phrase "beauty from ashes" into perspective. Eight years ago, I was a lovely 25 year old full of life and actively dating and trying to find a lasting relationship. All that youthful naive...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Lindsey & Brian

    I really thought as I neared 30 that my dating life was pretty pointless. I had grown up in a great Christian home with awesome parents as an example of a godly marriage. My sister married a pastor right out of college and quickly began her own ministry as a wife and mom. And here I was ... stuck in...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Aurora & Kenneth

    My name is Aurora. I'm 45. Ken is 50. We were married on May 1, a year to the day after our first in-person meeting. We don't necessarily fit the Boundless demographic, but we're hoping our story is an encouragement to others who find wisdom for the single journey here. This a second marriage...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: John & Kelly

    We met online. It's important, for me at least, that I get that out on the table. This may not seem like a big deal in a world of Facebook and MySpace and Twitter and eHarmony and the hundreds of other social networking sites available at the click of a mouse; but for me, a modest daughter of...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Yvetta & AJ

    I often think that God must have had me in His thoughts when He made my husband, AJ. The way He merged our lives together is a tangible reminder that He loves us, cares for us and wants the best for us. I did not grow up in a Christian home, and I had casually dated several guys through my high...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Tim & Emily

    The Lord protected us from early on. Both of our parents had prayed that the Lord would bring a godly spouse into our lives, so we entered Bible college wondering if this might be the place we'd meet. Emily and I had avoided dating relationships in high school and had worked hard to protect our hearts...
  • Blog Post: Engagement Stories: Vanessa & James

      James and I had already walked down the aisle together 23 years ago. Last October, we did it again. Let me explain. For two people only in their mid- and late twenties, James and I have a long history together, one that journeys through -- and even precedes -- growth spurts, big glasses...
