Anilu, 20-years-old and from SoCal might be of The Internet Generation, and from one of the trendy areas of the country, but she still never expected to meet “a random person from the Internet.” Then Jerry came along.
Jerry is 22-years-old and also from the SoCal area. After he received an emotigram from Anilu, he took the initiative and sent her a message, and for the best possible reason—Anilu’s interest in God was what he found compelling about her profile.
She came to admire his own commitment to God, as well as his family and his schoolwork. After dating for two weeks, Jerry brought Anilu to her favorite place on the beach, and gave her a bracelet with the question “Would you be my girlfriend,” engraved on it. “…he is such a sweet guy,” Anilu marveled. “Ever since we started dating he has treated me like a princess.”
It’s been fourteen months that Anilu and Jerry have been together. They’ve gained the strength that comes with going through relationship ups and downs and are continuing to enjoy the experience of growing together. “We are happily in love,” Anilu told CatholicMatch. “I am so grateful to God…I have the prince of my dreams.”
