Soulful Encounters Success Stories
In Soulful Encounters' few short years of existence and growing membership base we are happy to share some disabled dating success stories of couples who have met and grown together through the Soulful Encounters Disable Dating and Community website.
These members have overcome the struggles of merging two lives together over a distance despite their own situations and now share their lives together. Here are a few stories.
Carl and Molly Miller
I found Soulful Encounters by accident just doing a search for a good place to meet people where it was safe. I received a bonus when I found Soulful Encounters because I am a Special Needs Adult and so it was great .I signed up around Dec. 2008. I only expected to meet and make friends. However, in April, 2009, I received an email from a member who enjoyed my profile and wanted to chat. We ended up chatting and hitting it off and went out on a date in May, 2009.
We both fell in love and I proposed to her on July 4th, 2009. Rightaway, Molly, me and her parents started the long process of getting the wedding together. We got married on June 5th, 2010 at Christ Lurthern Church. We had our honeymoon at Holiday World. I really can say this is a great and awesome site.

Danielle and Shawn McElroy - Once in a Lifetime
Once in a lifetime, you meet someone that you have an instantaneous connection with--someone that makes you feel as if your relationship was destined to be. It only takes a second to be totally captivated by another person's soul, yet within that second, you realize that the rest of your life will never be the same again.
That's how it was with us...
We met on Soulful Encounters chatroom. And, we were both changed forever. It did not matter that we both had physical disabilities and needed wheelchairs. It did not matter that we lived 2700 miles apart, in different countries. And it did not matter that many of our friends and family members were skeptical about our long distance relationship. Completely obsessed, we started to write, telephone, webcam, and visit in person. Three years after we met, we were married in Tappen, BC, Canada.
Due to outside circumstances, our relationship will continue to be a long distance one for now, with occasional visits in person.. But we don't mind--we know how to make marriage work from across the miles.
If there's one thing we want single people with disabilities to know is that it is never too late to find someone special, nor is it impossible. We never dreamed it would happen to us, yet now we are living a dream.
