We met in april,and in person person the end of June. We knew we were in love right away before we ever met, something just clicked. We text everyday until we met and every day after. After our fist meeting which he had to fly from ohio to arizona for. We were already taking marriage. We were both mentally ready for a real lasting relationship. He moved out one month later and we got married in August. We are very happy and neither of us have been in a relationship with so much good communication. I think starting off limited to emails and texting really gave us time to develop a communication based relationship. The limited physical contact helped us focus on what really counts. We both had similar reasons for joining the site. And didnt exoect anything from it, but it turned out that curse we thought we had seems to be a blessing in that we found the love of our lives. We are going on five months married now and plan on dying by each others side. We never would have met if we both didn't get diagnosed and venture to your site for support. I'm very grateful for everything even though I thought this was the worst thing ever. Seems like god can turn everything out for our good even being diagnosed with hsv2. Thank you all for leading me to my husband I am truly blessed.
I found the love of my life. I thought that being positive was a death sentence. Instead it was the ultimate blessing as I found someone open, honest, and genuine. I am completely In love and so is my partner. THANK YOU POSITIVESINGLES.COM
I met three ladies in three weeks. and corresponded with a lot more. So for me it was successful.
My lady....chosen...is 37 ...no kids....and in employment and has no hang ups over the illness.
WE plan to spend Christmas together and talk seriously about marriage and living together.
WE spent a weekend together and laughed every minute.
I hope we can build on that.
I am from the United States. I started speaking with a guy on here from Ukraine. We met and spent a vacation together. The vacation become more and more extended as we were falling in love. We finally decided our feelings are real and truly deep for one another. We flew to Washington D.C. in November and married. We are both happier now than we ever have been.
I never post a picture on my profile because I'm to private for that. I've seen coworkers on here, and my business is mine. My match didn't have a photo either. After talking to her, I discovered it was for the same reasons. I knew we would hit it off. Her privacy was just as important to her in this age of people only wanting to see pics and body shots. Are they looking for love or lusting for a model? I sent her a pic after a few days of talking but, I told her not to send me one. I wanted the first time I see her to be in person. I wanted to get to know her before I saw what she looked like. Approximately a month after sending her the first email, we finally met. Two days have passed and I'm writing this story, and making this my last login.
I found koolkat on this site. We are dating and speaking of marriage. I was never a gold member but the fact that the site was there gave me insight to the fact that I am not alone and that there is someone out there who will like and love me. Thanks for your help and I hope not to have to venture back to this site but....
We corresponded approximately two weeks, maybe a few days more, before arranging a date. This was actually kind of funny. We chatted using the PS message system for a few weeks, then I gave her my email address, just to make communication easier for her (I had a premium account, which made things easy for me because I got notified via email that I had a PS message; but she had a non-paid account, which made things a little less convenient for her). I had to give her my email in code so it wouldn't get caught in the PS filters. I think it was along the lines of "tonyhikes at gee male."Via email, we decided we were ready for a date, but also decided it would be best to chat via phone first, so (again, in code), I gave her my phone number. Once on the phone, we arranged a date at a fairly new but already popular restaurant in Charlotte,Tupelo Honey, for a night about 5 days to a week in the future. But then, the next day, at her texted request, we arranged a "pre-date" meeting, which was explicitly "not a date," at a bar in a very hip part of Charlotte called NoDa, where we chatted for about 90 minutes. This made our actual first date, which was about three days later, less tense because we already had met. Smart of her, don't you think?We just met, been on three dates (not counting the "pre-date"). We're both open to the idea of marriage, not necessarily to each other, but to the idea of marriage. We're both divorced (once each) and are 1. not sure we want to go there again; and 2. going to be very careful if we do decide to go there again. But, perhaps more to your point, we are both talking and thinking as if we have a future together, though how long a future that turns out to be, I don't know. I will say for myself that if for some reason it ended tomorrow, it would have been a successful experience in every way.
The way I used PS went like this: I didn't go trolling the site for people. I just put up my profile and every few days to a week, I would check to see who had viewed my profile and base my decisions about whom to contact that way. I probably contacted about three to four women, though none of them resulted in anything more than a few back-and-forth messages. Only the last one resulted in an actual meeting. I think it would be safe to say that we're both pretty picky.
Finally:I based my decision to contact her on a combination of 1. her ability to express and describe herself in complete, grammatical sentences and paragraphs containing words that were spelled properly and used correctly; 2. the content of those words and paragraphs, which revealed with wit and in detail not just her statistics and a list of what she likes and dislikes, but her actual personality; and 3. her photos, which were not anonymous, grainy, half-hidden snapshots but thoughtful, artful and honest representations of herself. This combination of things not only led me to believe we might get on, but also told me this was an honest and thoughtful person who was truly interested in finding someone for a serious, open and frank relationship. I would encourage you to encourage others on the site to do what both she and I did: Dig deep within yourself to truly give others a frank, funny, slightly self-deprecating portrait of yourself. Too many of the profiles I looked at were superficial, cloaked, half-baked (or unbaked) words and images that appeared to be upchucked on the screen with little thought or work. It takes a little work to write something meaningful. Perhaps you could suggest that users of your site ask their friends and family members for insights into their personalities that they can use instead of saying things like, "Well, what can I say about myself?" That tells me nothing, which leads me to believe the person has no depth and is not taking this process very seriously. Also, get someone who has some education to proofread what you write!!! Thanks.
I met ‘J’ after a brief period of communication via email, ~3-4 weeks. We met at the zoo, and I actually was rear-ended on the way there - I took this as an indicator that things might not go well. However, after ~6 months of getting together for hikes, movies, and dinners, it appeared that there was some chemistry and many joint interests. I finally got the courage to invite ‘J’ over for dinner and a movie ~6-7 months after we had initially met. From that point on, we began seeing each other on a more regular basis and then it evolved into his spending weekends here, and driving home to Mesa (~20 mi) during the week. We talked about living together - he sold his house ~ 2 yrs after we met, and we have been living together now for approximately 2 years. There has been a longstanding discussion about marriage, but I have been at an impasse. However the walls are slowly crumbling and I anticipate that marriage may occur down the road.
Hope others achieve this success…
She is the first good thing I found on positive singles, and it was love at first picture for me. For her I didn't have a picture, but she liked what I wrote. I'm a Capricorn so maybe after five or so years then I will be able to say Yes, we're a couple. It is her decision to go off the website and continuing dating exclusively, so I am following suit. I am a very hard man to match, but I may have finally found it.Thank you, and cross my fingers.
We are too early to share anything, but it looks very promising. Our first coffee date triggered an outbreak, hadn't had one of those in a loooong time! Sorta made me feel young... like he does! Remember, everyone grows old, how old depends on how well you care for the child within.
We had both been members for only 2 weeks. And we're both over 50! He emailed me first. Said he liked my profile. He lives in California and I live in Texas. I liked his enough to write back. We went from that to constant texting and talking on the phone for another two or three weeks and decided to meet in Las Vegas for a few days. It was AWESOME! So effortless. The sex was amazing. And so free. Since then I've been to California to spend a few days with him. Even better than Vegas!!!! And now we're figuring out the next rendezvous. And who knows where it will lead? We are both ready to make a change including moving and may end up in his home state of North Carolina!
After years of disappointment and crying in bed I felt like giving up. I have gone through stages of depression wondering if I will always be alone to trying to be ok with being alone. He had contacted me in July and with the distance I wasn't interested. Derek drove through town this October and I was blunt saying I didn't need anymore time wasted and that he could be a serial killer. He said he wouldn't hurt an ant. We drove downtown Des Moines and I took him to a Vegan deli which was amazing. Walked the river and suddenly were inseperable with our touch and loving words. He is a truck driver/yoga instructor and I thought that sounded pretty fishy. This man though is the answer to my prayers. The love he shows fills my heart. I feel so blessed to meet someone so pure and kind. He wants to know everything about me and my family and children. He wants to love me unconditionally.
We corresponded about 2 weeks and had so many commons that I drove to West Virginia from Colorado to meet her. We just seemed to have an instant connection and we have decided to try to make a lifelong relationship out of it. I am moving to West Virginia the end of this month where we will continue seeing each other on a regular basis and see how things work out! A long term relationship is very likely! We have no photo's at this time.
