Patrick was smitten the moment he saw her. While this isn’t a tale of love at first sight, it is a story of going to great lengths to meet a girl.
She was gorgeous and he remembered every detail of how she looked. They both stepped onto the same train in a NY subway, and just as he worked up the courage to approach her, the train stopped and a throng of people rushed in. And then she was gone.
He started up NY Girl of my Dreams – a website where he wrote about his encounter with his dream girl, and even drew a cartoon of what she looked like. He pleaded for anyone who knew the girl to put him in contact with her.
His wish was granted. Someone recognized her from his little caricature and emailed him explaining that she was an Aussie magazine intern called Camille, and sent a photo of her to confirm. Bingo! Camille was his dream girl.

We met as friends through a mutual friend from our home church we have grown to dearly love.
Though our walks were not always easy, we continued to pursue a true relationship with God in our singleness, learning to trust Him with every aspect of our lives, including our love life. We met in August of 2009 as friends, and within two months, An knew deep in his heart that I was brought into his life on purpose, by God’s will. I WAS THE ONE.
Of course, when An confessed this to me in October, my reaction was typical of a woman with a guarded heart due to lessons from the past and wisdom from God. My immediate response was a rejection, and an offer to remain friends. He reluctantly, but respectfully, accepted my decision.
An not only continued to trust God and His promises, but he also continued to remain faithful to his own promises, and continued to quietly pursue me until God prepared us both to be ready for a relationship. He remained a true friend to me for seven months. In these seven months, God worked amazingly to transform both of us in ways we never expected. Prayers were answered and miracles took place. Little did we continue to know, God’s plan for us was only just beginning to unfold…
On the third of March, confirmed in the timing, he asked for my hand in courtship, and i happily and confidently accepted. Six months later, on the twenty-eighth day of August, surer than ever that i was his future wife given to him by God, he asked for my hand in marriage.
You have until Sunday, September 12th at midnight to get your vote in. The winner will be announced Tuesday, September 14th.
