I was browsing all my California matches and a guy playing guitar caught my eye. He was also very close geographically, so it was perfect. Neither one of us was a gold member but we wanted to meet so much that he paid the membership just to be able to contact me. And the rest is history...
Advice to other members:
We are very happy with each other and that PS made it possible for us to find each other.
Don't pass a good thing, you never know what it may evolve into.
