Charles and Andrea

A Love story in the countryside

The Story of Charles and Andrea

Charles and Andrea were both in their 30’s when they joined friendsfirst. A key aspect for them both in joining was that it was Christian. In addition Charles had moved into the countryside and didn’t know many people there, and the number of single men Andrea was meeting through friends and church was minimal. She’d been praying about a husband for a while and felt God asking her to push on a few doors.

Both were active in their membership, and not being too concerned about distance, had been contacting many of the people friendsfirst gave them. By chance they wrote to each other at the same time and their letters crossed. Charles was in touch with a number of girls but had immediately liked the sound of Andrea.

When they met for the first time for lunch, he knew immediately that ‘she was the one!’ Andrea was a little more cautious! Illness and holidays might have conspired against them but thankfully they didn’t, and soon they had a strong friendship and started ‘going out’. After 6 months Charles proposed by which time Andrea’s decision to say ‘Yes’ was an easy one. They were married 6 months later and certainly haven’t looked back since.

They both think that using friendsfirstwas a great idea (in fact many of their single friends have now joined as a result!), because as they say “there’s nothing to lose and everything to gain, let alone a lot of fun in the process.”
