My partner and I made contact on Dec 12/12. I had viewed his profile about a month before in passing and he decided to contact me in December after seeing my profile pop up as having viewed him earlier. We emailed back and forth twice over the course of two days and hit it off very quickly. We immediately began texting and calling and within 4 days of having first made contact I had booked a flight out to visit for 4 days over New Year's. I am from Winnipeg and he lives in Calgary. We met in person on Dec 30/12 and fell in love almost immediately. I'm currently fulfilling licensing requirements within my profession to be able to transfer and practice in Alberta. I'm planning to move in with him by the end of March and we've already been talking very openly about marriage and a future together.
Advice to other members:
I honestly don't know if I can offer any tips about improving your service, as it clearly worked well for me as it is. The feature that another member can see if you have viewed them was clearly a key factor in my success story. I find members are very hesitant with posting pictures or potentially identifying information, which tells me that there is a general sense of feeling insecure within the site or that anonymity isn't guaranteed. I felt insecure about it when my gold membership lapsed on two separate occasions and my pictures were made public to all members without my knowledge. On both occasions I got an influx of unwanted attention and felt very exposed. I think the privacy settings should remain in place even when a membership has lapsed or at least a warning should be posted to the member when it's about to lapse. I eventually grew more and more comfortable on the site, but those first two experiences were really bothersome and I came close to leaving the site both times....
