DUANE KIRKLAND and VALORIE VOGEL
From Duane: For years Valorie and I had both been searching for that other person that truly brought light, life and laughter to our lives.
I had spotted Valorie a few years ago by chance when walking through a courtyard at the Church of Scientology in Ybor City near Tampa, Florida. I wanted to talk to her but missed the chance.
A year-and-a-half passed. I had thoroughly decided I wanted to meet my true love, so signed up for the Affinity Exchange. As I was looking through profiles, I came upon Valorie’s. I could not believe my eyes that I was looking at the same lady I had spotted much earlier! I was ecstatic! I sent her a wink, and… well, the rest is history.
Although we lived 80 miles apart, we were able to be together on the weekends, which allowed us to pursue a long and enjoyable courtship. On 26 December 2015 we got married in a beautiful ceremony which included close friends and family.
Thank you so much for providing this invaluable service!
From Valorie: In 2011 my roommate and best girlfriend insisted I create a profile, as she had done so and knew the value of the service. While I was sleeping, she browsed the site winked at guys she thought were suitable for me. Even when I told her not to, her help flow was so strong, she continued. lol
While I was busy being on staff at the Ocala Mission, I received many responses from the website members. I met a couple of them and wrote several more, but none were right for me. I wondered if I would ever meet my match.
I sent a “prayer” to Ron to find someone perfect for me. One night I dreamed he came and kissed me three times. He spoke one word–“Flag.” I wondered if I was going to meet him there. Not too long after that, Duane sent me a wink. We made a date to meet after a graduation event at Flag. After a wonderful 18 month courtship, we had a beautiful wedding ceremony at the Flag Building Chapel, and are now living happily ever after!
