Good morning, I will share some details. I am in an exclusive relationship with a woman I met on PS!
Advice to other members:
We corresponded for probably two to three weeks via email, then for a couple of weeks by phone. After that we arranged a meeting. My match is over 250 miles from me so travel has been a big part of keeping together.
I visited her in her town for a weekend after about a month and a half of corresponding. There are no concrete plans right now, but both of us went on PS looking for a long term and serious commitment.
First, if you want the page to work for you, you have to do some work, Dedicate some time every day to searching for matches and editing your profile. This will get you used to the format and result in plenty of practice approaching matches you are interested in.
Second, don't be afraid to date outside your initial parameters. It is important to have some guidelines and standards but if you are connecting with someone and everything about their situation isn't consistent with what you think you are looking for, at least give the person some consideration. I was hesitant to pursue something long distance, but we had too much in common for me to ignore corresponding. When we met, we had chemistry and now that connection has progressed and grown into an exciting, healthy, relationship.
