I started looking though the profiles and just sent out a few emails to the ones that I thought were interesting, much to my surprise I got several responses. Well I kind of hit it off with one in particular person and we emailed back and forth for about a week and a half, then started chatting online, [for another week or so], we seem to have a lot in common so I gave her my number and we talked once and laughed a lot.
I told her where I worked and when she was in town she came by to see me and had a nice visit. [We met face to face after about a month]. We are still in the getting to know each other stage and neither of us is in any hurry, but rather looking for friendship first, but we both agree that that is the first step to any long term relationship.
I have found my husband on your site. Thankyou very much, im sooooo happy! Thank you ever so much, I am overjoyed. We exchanged numbers within 48 hrs and he told me that he had met me 5 yrs previously, and that he emailed me with a message "I am the one you are looking for" a month before. I said that I never saw that message, and that I must have missed it. He reminded me where we had met, which was at a group called Naz Project, and he never saw me again until he saw my profile with my picture. so he proposed and I accepted, and we will be married in August this year (2010) God willing.
Once again, thankyou so much for everything!
I am incredibly in love with someone I met from your site....thank you so much!..lol...we have an old-fashioned romance going...letters...phone calls...and, yes, we've already talked of marriage...we both have met our Anam Cara...(little more involved than soul-mate...it pretty much states that you've come home...web search it...it's beautiful)...he lives in Pennsylvania..2,000 miles away...When on your site...I'd never put "anywhere" on my search...just kind of stayed local...chatted with a few...but, one day I was bored playing poker...lol...and hit "anywhere"...just to see if maybe I could unsurface a pen pal...he stood out...his profile was great...so, I winked...within a couple of hours...he e-mailed me...and 200 + emails later and numurous hours on the phone...neither of us want anyone else...we're calling ourselves twins from other mothers...lol..or "o-mo's"...we're connected unlike any relationship either of us has had...(and we're both in our 50's...so, it's safe to say we've had a couple....lol)
Anyhow, thanks for your interest...and THANK YOU for your site...it's a blessing

I have meet a really nice man from here , thank you for having this site , it was a blessing to know i am not alone. Well i winked at a man and in 5 days he email back , but i didnt know he believed in jesus , And on the next day i was praying saying to God i dont believe i can find the man i looking for here , i mean a man that has H and believes in jesus too , well that same day this man emails me again saying i stepping out and heres my no. and i also believe in jesus ... wow i could not believe what i was reading ... we have talked every day and texted we cryed a little , laugh lots , so its been only 2 weeks but in 3 weeks i am going to meet up face to face and we going to have 2 weeks together to see if theres more but the both of us are looking to marry later on if all goes well but we just seem to feel we were meant to meet by your site ... and even if it just ends up as friends i now have my faith back that there is some one out there that has H and believes in jesus too ... And all my thanks for your site i also must say i made some friends and they say to me its so good to talk to some one who knows how it feels trying to live with a STD and as i have live with mine for 24 years now others that have just got it always ask me how do things change or how do you cope with it , i also now know that men have a much harder time with it when it comes to going out with mates like going to the toilets ... i have learn a lot in a very short time ... Again Praise God for your site and careing about others , bless you!
We didn't know when it was coming, but we knew it was. Since we've met we've shared more than just laughs and a few GREAT dates. We've supported each other through uphill battles and been there for our most tiring moments. I'm not one to use the word "forever", but its good enough for me to know I don't want to look further.
Thanks positive singles team, it has really changed my life. Your service is a great one for people with STDs.
Moving off the site after finding love and much happiness again. We connected last November and after several months of emails ended up going out on a date in April of this year. The connection was immediate and profound in many ways. Zyla is a wonderful being who has brought so many things into my life in such a short time. We are dating and moving slowly into a deep and loving relationship.
When I found this site I was once again hopeful, but skeptical, and can't believe how much having this place to go would mean so much to me. I feel worthy again and actually blessed to have this virus or I wouldn't have found Dave, who has come into my life like an angel. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing new meaning into my life when I didn't think I had a chance to love again.
We corresponded for about 2weeks via the dating site's IM system, which was tough, because I'm 1st shift & he's second, so there was a lot of space between messages.
He asked me to meet him for a casual drink at a local restaurant with karoke bar where we had drinks & appetizers. We really hit it off, so he said he wanted to take me out on a real date the following weekend for a nice dinner. We IM'd during the week, had dinner & the rest is history. It's only been about a month, but yes, we are already talking marriage (in the future) & buying a house together (totally crazy, but we know it's right!!) We're really getting to know each other & even thought things are cruising at top speed (emotionally), our working different shifts (for now) is keeping us grounded because we don't see each other much during the week. We're already great friends, enjoy doing things together (he's even teaching me to play golf!) & we're building a romantic relationship on that friendship. What has been key is not getting physical right away (well, except for awesome make-out sessions). We both agree that people jump into bed too soon & that's all they have, so it doesn't last. We wanted to know we were meant to be together before we got that intimate & he hasn't put any pressure on my in that regard, which has been wonderful! Men don't realize what a weight that puts on us. People should take the emphasis off sex & put it on getting to know the other person. That creates the foundation for a lasting relationship, & the physical part will be better because it will be based on love & emotions rather than empty lust & physical attraction. We truly believe this has made our relationship strong & will stand the test of time. Good luck to all, it can happen to you too!
Well I went on this site to see if there was others out there that were good looking, decent, and educated. I wasn't looking for a relationship at all. i found someone after about a week. He is the best. I think I actually found a best friend. we have developed strong feelings for each other as well. I don't feel alone anymore. i have gained so much. i have hope and self esteem back. I have been talking with him everyday for the last 3 weeks. We live in different Countries but we are planning on meeting. we have shared numerous emails, pictures and have met in a way on web cam. i can't explain how happy and satisfied I am now. thank you.
I found someone on this site two months ago. First question "How long did we correspond for before meeting?": Well about two days. I wanted to meet him so I could cross him off my list, I did have a list. I was getting so much response, and I didn't want to pass up or miss the right one. So I was meeting someone each week. We met for lunch, and had to get back to work, so I knew I wouldn't be obligated for time. I liked his honesty about his dedication to a deceased spouse, so I felt this man deserved a little more checking out. We dated a few weeks. I enjoyed every minute. He makes me laugh till I cry. I love every thing about him. A real sweetheart. There is not serious talk about marriage yet. I believe it will happen in the future. He has mentioned it, but I think he doesn't want to scare me. I now spend as much time with him as possible. ( I live 65 miles away for now). I am very happy with this relationship.
We began talking online for a few weeks, then we exchanged telephone numbers. After about a month and a half, I went to see a good friend of mine whom he happened to live an hour away from. We spent a week together and couldn't get enough of each other. I plan on moving from Tulsa to Indianapolis in July. We hope to be married soon and start our own little family! Distance doesn't matter, as long as you spend time getting to know the person and don't just jump into meeting asap, you'll know if it's right or not before you even meet.
We met on your site. He was one of the first people to contact me when I initially signed up. We were both going through a divorce and had some things in common. We e-mailed each back and forth for a couple of weeks. Then our schedules are crazy so we decided to start texting. We then wanted to talk on the phone. After our first phone conversation (was over an hour long, LOL) he asked me out. He took me to an upscale restaurant here in Orlando and we had a great time. We both went into the date with no expectations and knew that in person we just might not hit it off. But we definitely did :) He was smart, handsome, charming and funny. We continued talking and were both anxious to see each other again. Well, on our next date we both decided that we did not want to date anyone else and that we were both going to cancel our memberships and only see each other.
There are no plans for marraige as this is still new but we definitely think this will last. We hope to meet each other's children soon.
thanks for the good wishes and here's a little about our story. we actually live 5 blocks from each other in the same township and state. we learn we see the same specialist doctor for our condition and yet it took a Canadian based company to bring us together. we corresponded for a week and opted to meet on a Saturday at Fish Bone Grill, a seafood restaurant since we learn we both love seafood. we also both love movies and books. our date was very comfortable. we laugh a lot and hit it off right from the start. we continue dating over the next 3 weeks and decided that we should move in together starting June first. we are planning our first vacation the last week of may to Napa Valley since we both also have a thing for wines. As far as marriage goes, we brush the subject but nothing is in the work nor are we rushing to the altar. we going get to know each other and later we might def get marry and there's plan of hyphenating his last name to mine. I can't thank your website and you guys for the wonderful work. when I was diagnose with HIV I though my life was over. I didn't think i could find love again having left my ex of 8 years for cheating and getting me infected so it's really wonderful that i met someone with the same medical situation and we now live to watch out for each other. you guys rock. thanks again.
He winked to me 27december 2009, exchanged mails, phone.we mail a lot. We find out we are soulmate just after easter holiday, we plan to meet and it was love from start. We both knew we realy like each other and short time. We feel the chemisrt and everything was great,he told me he love me just afew days after our first date. I looked at his eyes and saw he is the man who I love too but I'd to tell him about it and iwas happy to hear coming from him. We visited each other and even i met his parent and his sons, on his bithday soon im looking forward to meet his sister and her family.
Just found someone. Thanks for everything! here's the secret. I skipped all the "winking" stuff. I saw her profile, I liked it, and I cut her a short email to tell her so. It turns out she was getting dozens of winks (maybe more) every day. They just became white noise after awhile. The email stood out. We exchanged probably a half-dozen emails, then spoke on the phone, found some things in common, and decided to meet. No point in putting that off very long, I guess.
We were supposed to meet at a coffee house, but when it was closed, she suggested dinner. (That gave her time to realize that I was not some creeper.) We've been dating nearly five months, marriage hasn't really been discussed, but it's not off the table.
I met a person through the website that I want to date exclusively. It's funny that I had only been on the website for less than 2 weeks and I am already leaving because I met someone through it. After having 2 very long conversations on the phone and probably 50 texts exchanged back and forth, Jared got the day off from work and decided to drive an hour to where I practice and play golf (he is a golfer as well). There was an instant attraction and after spending 7 hours together at the golf course, he decided to move our dinner plans that were set for the next night up to that night. Since meeting we have spent at least 2 hours every day together...and he is definitely worth the 30 min drive. I can't predict the future because we have only been seeing each other 5 days, but I know that the feeling is mutual about wanting to exclusively date each other and we have already talked about potential plans 4 months down the road....I've never had so much in common with someone else and I have never felt this way right away after seeing someone less than a week....thank you PositiveSingles!!!
astra23 is got a very good contact with emergencyroom, taking one step at a time. we have a positive same side direction. its been great to be on the sight even made friends, out of the united kingdom. best wishes to every one in the sight, many thanks to the positive singles team.
keep up the good work, you have been great thumbs up!
We corresponded for just over a month before meeting; the reason being that he was living in Nova Scotia and I live in Ottawa, Ontario. We had an immediate and intense connection within the first few emails/chats, and we both knew that we had something very special. The only way to confirm what we were thinking/feeling was to meet in person to see if it all translated....
He had already been planning a move to Vancouver, BC before we began emailing/talking, so we arranged to meet in Ottawa as he drove across Canada on his move. He arrived on February 27th, 2010....and he's still here (he was only supposed to stay for the weekend) and we're living together (well, we have been since the day he arrived...lol).
He's amazing and I've never been happier in my life...I could never have dreamt such a perfect man (for me) was 'out there'...especially after a very unhappy 19 year marriage, and even more so after I discovered I had HSV2 less than a year ago. Everything happens for a reason and I am so incredibly thankful, every single day, that I had the 'guts' to send my handsome man an email on your site. Thank you for providing such a much needed service to us socially disadvantaged daters...it has made my life so much more rewarding than I could have ever imagined.
BTW...there has been talk of marriage...
I met my new partner on your website. We corresponded for a few weeks before meeting for dinner at a local restaurant. Since then, things have been going amazingly well. We have connected on a level which I have never
before experienced. It is truly an amazing experience which I will never forget. We have talked about the future and the possibility of marraige however, it is still a little too early to say that we are engaged. Hoping for the best though, we are amazingly connected.
