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...
We are very happy with each other and that PS made it possible for us to find each other.
Advice to other members:
Don't pass a good thing, you never know what it may evolve into.
