I met someone. I want to give it a fair try. Having this site was awesome in the beggining but it also causes for a distraction and that human need of always searching for the "greener grass". He's 3000 miles away but we're going to try to make it work.
We corresponded/skyped/ps chat for well over a year before meeting this January where he lived in NYC . It was after Christmas and the place ticket was actually a gift from my family to meet him. For four days it was bliss and when it was time to leave it was like a piece of me going as well. We connected so well, without words it just felt right. Marriage is a big step and not quite yet ready to go for that at all were going to try long distance, he's booked his ticket for April and hoping we can make it work. It's been working over Skype for this long and I can def wait for him every few months. We both thought we had the same thing but turns out he may not have any of it, but a false positive result, but it hasn't stopped him from trying to be with me.
I'm originally I'm from Canada but have been living in the UK, all the time we talked I moved from place to place traveling, even staying in the Middle East. From the first time we talked my face actually hurt from smiling so much.
Advice to other members:
Remind people that PS is a tool and can't be expected to right away make people connect. Connections need to be made by them. So many people on your site that I have spoken to have this attitude that PS is not doing enough. You should endorse the fact that PS is a great tool if you know what you're looking for, and are willing to work for it. Love isn't easy but it's worth it once you find the one that fits.
Use more warnings when meeting people, I know you have tips and such but make it bolder! You need to push safety to people including for men. I've been in some pretty odd situations.. so make sure they are clear on what exactly is wanted from the meeting..
Instead of having generic headers like "hobbies" and such make the profiles ask questions as in what do you most value in a per
