I found someone here.We initially corresponded throgh Positive Singles. Within a couple of weeks eventually exchanged emails & then phone numbers. As recommended in your site we met in a public place and did not exchange more personal information other than cellular numbers. I think you can say we hit it off right away; had a lot of things in common and are currently dating mutually. I think the website enabled us to reach passed the awkward stage of having to disclose anything since we already knew we had that in common. I'm personally very greatful for your site, since without it I would have missed out on meeting this awesome guy. I would highly recommend anyone trying to find someone whether is to just hang out, penpals or something more serious to just pace yourself and give each other time to get to know one another. There is someone out there for you. I know since I found mine.
I would love to share my story. Brandon and I communicated through email and text for about 2 weeks before meeting at a bar for drinks. There was an instant connection. We both are so happy to have found someone who is in the same boat and can understand. The best part of our story is we actually went to high school together and would have never ended up together if it wasn't for this site. Thanks positive singles!
We talked for about a week and a half before meeting. We texted all day and then would talk for like 3 hours every night on the phone. We ended up meeting in Seattle. We don't plan on getting married this is a freash relationship don't want to jump the gun lol .I will probably send pictures when we get more :)
I have ended my subscription because I met a great guy. I have met my dream guy on this site in less than 30 days. We seem to be made for each other and I am so excited to see where it goes. Thank you positive singles for catering to us different category of people. I am truly thankful for this site.
Her: I had been diagnosed with HSV 2 two years ago. I was terrified when I found out that I would never be able to find someone who would understand what I was going through and want to be with me, a feeling I am sure many people on this site have had. After a year of struggling, I joined PS. I was skeptical about online dating websites but within the first couple months I received a message from Jacob. We were living about an hour and half apart at that point in time, but decided it would be worth it to meet up. We started meeting up every weekend after that. Although we live 3 hours apart right now we are still making those weekend commutes and it has been one of the greatest relationships I have ever been in. It is incredible to have have someone who knows what a struggle finding out you have HSV can be and is supportive. I just wanted to let people on this site know that you should never give and you deserve someone who won't judge you but who can really be there for you.
Him: I've had HSV 2 for about a year now, and Casey has been apart of my life for most of that time. I found out January of 2013 and being diagnosed just shut me down. At first I didn't want to even think about dating for a really long time, but knew that it would be hard to dig myself out of the hole if I let myself go down that road. I had used other online dating sites before, and figured there had to be something for people with HSV and other life circumstances. I messaged Casey and we met about 3 months after I had been diagnosed and have been together ever since. We make weekly commutes to see one another on weekends, but is so worth it. This site helped me find someone who was open minded, understanding, and very loving. She knows what I've been through with HSV and the toll it takes on you as a person. Being with Casey has helped me move past the idea that Herpes is ruining my life, to knowing how extremely lucky I am to have her in my life.
I found someone. Almost instantly, We talked nonstop, got to know each other very well. This is the most unlikely place i had ever thought i would meet someone, online. But wow, getting the whole std issue out of the way, nothing in the way, helped alot. thank you very much.
I would like to send my appreciation towards the
creation of this wonderful web site. Positive Singles is doing an immense service in
being able to connect people with "stigma" so called dis-eases such as HIV. I met my
new girl friend and new found deep love interest on Positive Singles. She came on
for a "test run" for one month to see where it would lead her. I came on the site
around the same time. From our profile right up until our first meeting it was all
positive. I don not believe that two middle aged adults such as us could have been
happier with how things are turning out. For sure we have a lot of one for one
another. This web site proves without a doubt that when two people are supposed to
connect, they will. I am not nor have I ever been a member of any other site, so I
can not comment on any compare or contrast. But Positive Singles has allowed me to
connect to an amazing woman....I thank you. Pleas e feel free to use all or part of
any of this commentary as a Positive endorsement for the site! Both of us thank you
very much, peace and love H&J
Well first he winked at me. I checked out his profile and saw that he appeared to be what I was looking for not just in looks but likes and dislikes as well. Because I'm not a member I couldn't email him so I just winked back to let him know I was interested and that he should contact me. He emailed me the very next day. From then we just emailed back and forth everyday for almost a month until he gave me his number. When he gave it to me I remember him saying that he was going to give me his number and that he hoped I wasn't crazy. I waited until the next day to finally text him because I was super nervous. When we started texting it was as if we had been friends for years. I held a get together for a friend at my place and invited him out and he immediately drove the 2 hours to come meet me and my friends. That was the first time we met. When I saw him in person I knew he was the one. The look in his eyes told me he felt the same. That night we instantly clicked and it felt as if we had been in a relationship for many years. Even my friends who knew I had just met him felt as if we had been together for years. We visited each other back and forth for awhile and discovered that we had been crossing each others paths for awhile. We grew up just an hour away from each other and he actually knew some of my friends from high school. There are plans for marriage eventually. We don't want to rush marriage because of our families. But we are moving in together soon. Honestly the only thing I can recommend is more variety in the winks. That and making membership cheaper. Thank you for having this site though because if it hadn't been for this site we never would have met.
I have met someone truly amazing through this site. We have been taking since November and I truly love him with all my heart. I was very scared to date again after finding out I had hsv2 and I was very skeptical of this site but I cannot begin to express his grateful I am for a site like this and I hope more and more people find this site and find love. Thank you for allowing me a place to find my true happiness ♥
I met a wonderful person through this site with whom I would like to build an exclusive relationship with. Putting myself out there and being contacted by male members wouldn't be the best for what we're trying to build (whether I reply or not.)
Thank you for affording me this opportunity!!! If this goes the way I would hope, wedding pictures will be sent in a few years ;-)
Actually he is very camera shy and I haven't been able to talk him into taking a picture with me yet, maybe this valentines day...
He contacted me and said something silly like I see you live very close to me want to go out to dinner sometime. Very romantic, I know right!
We went out to dinner the very next night. We hit it off from the second we saw each other. We dated for three months and then he decided it was too soon after his very bad divorce that left him very damaged emotionally.
He contacted me again right before Thanksgiving this year and said he would like to try and just be friends because he enjoyed being with me. Just a couple weeks ago he decided that if we took it slow that he would be interested in eventually getting married. We haven't set a date or even a year for that matter, but I care deeply for him and would like this to work out.
We emailed for about a week and a half before meeting. Daily emails probably 2-3 a day.
She's in her last semester of college at ISU which is only about an hour and a half away from me so I drove to her apartment on a Saturday two and a half weeks ago and
we went to dinner then hung out with her roommates all night. They all knew about PS and were really supportive.
We've only been seeing each other a few weeks so no plans for marriage yet haha, but I do have a good feeling about her, which is why I canceled the subscription.
I am leaving because I met my boyfriend on your site. We have been dating since July 2013 and are now living together. Dating someone with the same STD as me has been wonderful; no judgement, no holding back. We are totally in love. Thank you.
Well we meet at a local bar and we hit it off right from the start. And now we are together as much as possible. We enjoy the same foods,movies.and the out of doors.i could not have picked a better person to spend my time with.
Am very happy to have come to this site, it has helped me a lot and I think I finally met the love of my life, so there is no need for the profile. Thanks very much for this site. Happy new year 2014 to all the team.
I think I've met THE ONE! I am so thankful for this site. I don't know how I would have managed meeting others with what I have. I met someone who is a couple hours away and without this site I would have never met him and I'm sure my life would have never have felt as complete as it does now. So thank you for giving people like me sonewhere to go where they can feel "normal" again without feeling discouraged or ashamed. Somtimes bad things happen to good people, but I think I was meant to meet him so God pushed me through the rough situations to find the person i found through your site and I have never been happier.
