Found someone amazing!I began corresponding with Alex 3 weeks before meeting him for new years. He came to visit me from out of state and we've been making visits for every other week since. We are planning to move down south at the end of the year.
Thank you all for creating a site where people in similar situations don't have to feel judged!
I found the love of my life on the site!I first messaged him through PS in November. We corresponded for almost five months. We added each other on facebook & messaged that way as well. We had our first date scheduled for Saturday, April 5th. He came over Friday night to my house (we had a backwards first date! lol) The pictures below are from our last date. I knew that being head over heels in love was possible, but man!!! Thank you PS for helping me find the love I always knew existed!!!!!! Thanks guys, keep up the great work:)
Thanks for the note. We found each other by searching, and at first were not sure. Her pics were not current, and she was (and is) hiding from an abusive ex so she was off the site pretty quickly when he found out she was on it and started harassing her immediately. It's pretty luck we met since she was on for only 3 weeks and that was a few months back. We typed for probably about a week, then met the first time for drinks and hanging out. That ended up being a longer than expected evening, followed by a motorcycle date about 4 days later due to scheduling, with lots of emails back and forth. There were some allergy issues with pets but I think we got past those.
No marriage plans yet but possibly cohabitating down the road when my lease is up. Our sons have met, and my daughter will soon meet her sons. Sons get along great.
My biggest tip is for people to be honest but not over bearing, and to read profiles before you meet!
By being honest and sincere in my profile I was able to find another like minded person with whom I am currently enjoying getting to know further. Without help from this site I can honestly say I would never have found her as easily as I did. We are currently enjoying a great relationship with each other!
I met someone on this site and I know we both are perfect for each other! Thank you ;) We met on this site! And started to chat then ,phone for 6 weeks before we met! I think we are going to do really great! Thank you
PS has definitely made my love life a little easier. I'm recently coming out of an emotionally abusive marriage, looking for a fresh start. It was so great to know that PS is still up and running, I was a member years ago before meeting my ex, whom I did NOT meet on PS by the way.
Have been corresponding with someone who does not live for me as close as I would like; however he and I have been finding that we have many things in common and are very excited to meet each other. At this moment he is the only individual I am interested in communicating with. Although he is at a slightly far location, it's close enough to arrange personal meetings in advance.
At first I met him who took the initiative and emailed me soon after I signed up. Although he was very nice, patient, a good dad, and relatively close to home, there was something about him and me that didn't seem to match up. Then I noticed his zodiac sign, Cancer. As silly as it sounds, I believe astrology holds a lot of merit. So I did a little research on our chances for compatibility. Turns out that my notions of what our relationship would be like were reiterated by what I found in my research, we were not romantically compatible. So I decided to move on.
This is when I really began to take notice of the zodiac signs of the male PS members that live in my area. By the way, I love the PS feature that lets you know who you are most compatible with. I wish I had this before I got married! Although I am aware that zodiac sign alone should not be taken into consideration when meeting potential mates, it's a great place to start.
I then met Tomas, a Leo, and a little more my type. He also lives a lot closer to me and seemed to have great potential as a significant other; however, conversations with him were a little less than exciting, sad to say. I gave it a chance and met him for a dinner date. Our convos ran a little flat. No future date was set, and I didn't hear much from his since then. I'm assuming he picked on my "I'm a little bored" vibe or perhaps he was more attracted to another member. Either way, it's no matter because I had also met Sam.
It was fortunate that while speaking to Tomas I had decided to plant a few more little seeds and reached out to a handful of other members that seemed to fit my guy criteria. zodiac sign and all. I saw Sam's profile and thought he was very cute, funny, and had a similar perspective as mine when it comes to relationships. He replied to my email, I sent him a photo of me, and we chatted a couple of times on the phone. I'll admit I was not giving Sam much of a focus for a few of reasons: one, I was a little more focused on Tomas at first, two, Sam lives close to 40 minutes away from me, and three, his busy work schedule and shared custody of two kids does not leave him much time to meet up for an occasional weekend or coffee date. But shortly after the disconnect with Tomas I decided to answer a phone call from Sam, not with the intention of seeking a date, let alone a relationship, but for the reason I just so happened to need a friendly chat at that very moment. We ended up talking for almost two hours.
After discovering we had a ton of stuff in common we began to really like each other. About a week and a half later he managed to find some time from his schedule to drive to town and meet me for the first time over breakfast. He's even cuter in person and our conversations are never dull. We text and talk on the phone nearly all day, every day. It's been about two weeks since our long phone call, three weeks since our first emails. We are currently planning a second date this coming week. We both decided to cancel our gold memberships, obviously I have closed my account completely. I am very excited to live my new future!
Will I ever consider rejoining PS again? Of course, but first I'm looking forward to getting to know Sam a lot more. We'll see if I need to rejoin ever again. Fingers crossed!
As far as suggested improvements for PS, the only thing I can think of is perhaps make the account settings a little more user-friendly. For example: making it a easier to decide whether or not to let others know how long it's been since your last login, or give the non-paying members an option to choose a custom icon as their profile pic. Anonymity is very important to us, but we still want to stand out from others wherever possible. Other than that, ya'll are doing a great job! Thank you!
This has happened suddenly, she recently joined the site and we corresponded for a few days before meeting in person. We live in the same town, met for dinner, and were instantly smitten with each other. No immediate plans for marriage, but that is a possibility in the future.
Thank you so much. I had plenty of choices of some nice people and I really want to focus on one in particular. He is super and I think he just might be the one. Thank you!!!!! Really so thankful to you all.
Mark and I contacted each other back in January. Hello's and how are you's. We exchanged numbers and things progressed nicely from there. I must say, having the awkward "talk" out of the way was such a big help. We knew and accepted each other in that regard. No plans for marriage yet, dear Lord no.. But it's nice to have someone who can relate to your struggles and past history without having to say it all. Without your site, we never would have met. Thank you so much for having such a communication system that allows people like us to feel relaxed and knowing upfront that the uncomfortable "I have herpes" talk is non-issue.. Because it's always in the back of your mind.
My success came from this site. I met a girl called Martha. She is so beautiful and I had a date and then didn't see her for a few weeks as I was HIV negative and she was afraid of giving me hives. But she spoke to her mum and she told her to contact me. Again and on Thursday this week we are meeting again. I am so happy she is the love of my life and I'd do anything for her.
I met someone on here that started with a wink. We have started seeing each other and things are going very well. Out of respect for her I am closing my account. In the event our relationship would end or we just become friends I will be back on your site. Thank you!!!
I believe we corresponded for a few weeks before finally meeting. We met for lunch in March 2010 at a local restaurant. We are expecting out first baby late this summer and getting married in the fall.
Your site helped me connect with someone I had feelings for and without this site, we never would have known.
My current boss and I met a year ago, at our corporate training in NYC and were instantly attracted to each other however he was living in Virginia Beach with his Fiance and I was living in Cincinnati. In December the vice president the midwest region called me to let me know that we would have a new manager starting on January 2nd in our office.
One day in mid December, he walked through the doors of my office and I found out that the man I had a crush on at training would be my manager.
About a month ago I received a text from him after work hours and it said that he wanted to talk to me about something that was bothering him. He told me that after observing me for months and hearing all of my dating stories in the office (all of the employees are 25-30), that he couldn't understand why I was single. He told me that he thought I was sweet, and beautiful, motivated, with a good head on my shoulders. I replied and just told him that I had been through a lot with men and that maybe, someday when we got to know each other a little better, that I may fill him in on the details and events of my early dating years.
He told me that there was no need because he already knew and understood. At this point I was completely confused and I asked him what he meant. He responded with ":) PS". Two nights later we got together for a drink and shared our stories and our feelings for one another.
Everything happens for a reason. That is something that I have learned from this site and from having Herpes. Life may be difficult and bad things may happen to good people, but in the end all of us with find love and support. Last night we were driving home from a support group event (it was his very first one with all of the people in Cincinnati), and he looked at me and said "Marriage and relationships can be very difficult. There are so many tests and tribulations that people have to overcome. I truly believe that you and I went through all of our hardships and struggles so that when we found each other, we would be strong enough for each other to last a lifetime." Writing out his words now, it instantly brings tears to my eyes. Thank you for this site and for allowing us to take down our walls to find love.
This is real...he's here to stay...this is the one. We are preparing for my move to NY, When we met a little over a year ago. When I first looked into his eyes...I just melted...he was so handsome. And had the most beautiful eyes. He has a good heart too. He is a sweetheart...typical New Yorker..lol. But still my sweetie...my best friend...my rock...with him I feel secure.
I met a wonderful man and we are serious about seeing where it will go... trust begins with taking down your dating profile!!
I LOVE PS--- It rescued me from a bleak dating existence and provided an easy way to meet quality men. I found that the level of men on PS, though fewer in numbers, exceed other dating sites by far. I was really pleased. It didn't take long for me to find someone and for him to find me... and if we don't walk off into the sunset together, and then I'll be back on PS!
