One can go to a hundred different dating sites to find “The One” but Sovereign Grace Singles has facilitated one unique story. The story of Becky and Kenny that sparks comments such as, “That’s just crazy!” or, “Are you serious!?”
On June 13th, 2019 Kenny from Maryland came across a Facebook post that referenced SGS. Being a single reformed Presbyterian with no prospects in his local community, he was intrigued that a reformed dating site existed. After creating an account and spending a whopping 30 min browsing the site, someone messaged him in the chatroom, “Hi, where’s your picture?”
Becky from California just so happened to walk into her room where her kids were playing on the computer and noticed that a profile was up on her screen with the chat box ready for dialog. Thinking her children were browsing for “a new Husband,” as they would say, she gave a quick glance at Kenny’s profile without a picture and decided to reach out and make conversation. Unbeknown to Becky that Kenny was only on the site for about 30 min, asked, “Hi, where’s your picture?”
Kenny responded with, “It’s being approved; I am new here.” Becky said, “Send me one in the chat.” Kenny submitted a picture, and Becky offered her number. He was skeptical of the speed in which she offered her number, having spent 7 years and thousands of dollars on other dating sites without someone offering their number that quick, decided that it must be a scam. She asked to talk on the phone, but Kenny, still being skeptical thinking that this is too good to be true, responded by saying, “Perhaps another time.”
On June 14th, the following day, Kenny reached out and called Becky. They had their first phone conversation of 4.5 hours. The second day the same – another 4.5 hour phone call. Kenny knew this was much different than any other conversation he has had and thought this must be The One. They were completely aligned on every issue and met and exceeded each others expectations for what they were looking for in a mate. After only two weeks of talking and never having met, decided to start talking marriage. Kenny had a ring picked out at the end of the week, and Becky bought a wedding dress. By week three it was settled that they both wanted to marry each other but didn’t have a date set or an official proposal. Due to life events Kenny and Becky had to wait about six weeks from first talking until they finally met in person. During the 45 days they talked everyday no less than 4 hours and up to 9 hours. Kenny flew out to California to meet Becky for the first time and proposed that week.
They set a date of October 14th 2019 for the wedding, exactly 4 months after starting communication and having only met 3 times (including the wedding). God used SGS to connect us and we thank them for facilitating God’s plan for our life!
