Correspondence was short, maybe a week. We emailed back and forth once and planned to meet for lunch. Lunch is easy and can be short if someone is uncomfortable. Our second date was that night. We married 15 months later. Both our experiences were its best to meet quickly and see if there is a connection. The back and forth emails and notes can become tiring and then it's easy to avoid a meeting. Your service is invaluable and we both thank you, good luck.
He winked at me and initiated contact. I then responded with a wink and he began emailing me. We corresponded through email for a few days then began communicating
via phone for about 1-2 weeks before meeting in person. The connection was instant, we both felt a strong chemistry right away.
We decided to meet on a Friday for happy hour at a neighborhood restaurant between the two of us. The atmosphere has a great laid back feel. We sat on the patio, the weather was gorgeous, and not too many other people around which allowed for privacy as we got to know each other better.
The evening flew by. We both could see it in each others eyes that this was it. As we both have said, when you know, you know.
Plans for marriage are in our near future. We each knew what we wanted and neither one of us wanted to settle on anything less. It feels amazing to find that person who compliments you and having last piece of the puzzle found and placed.
We are looking forward to our future together and moving into the next chapter of our lives.
I cannot think of anything that I would want to improve fir the site. It was easy to use and communicate with others.
I want to thank PositiveSingles for giving us a place we can meet and feel safe with others in similar situations. It makes the dating process for people like us a little less stressful.
I found the one for me through your site. We are now committed and in love. I no longer have use for the site. We may return as a couple in the future, but for now we wish to focus on our relationship. My thanks go to the founders of this site. With out Positive Singles, we would have never met. Thank you for introducing me to my future wife.
Found the love if my life. Really! This time it's for good. It's very premature at this point. But we're both ecstatic and giving it our best shot. How would I change the site? Maybe be more lenient with sending a free one-time email?
The problem is with the immaturity level of the members. Just some thoughts-- Maybe give them tips on etiquette. Of have pop ups telling people what to do or say. PS already does this to a degree.
And don't take it the wrong way but I hope I never have to come back! Haha. What a great service you provide! Thank you!
We corresponded for about a month before we had an unplanned meeting. It was not planned to meet in person. We both happened to be at the same place at the same time. That made it really comfortable because we had another agenda but at least got to meet.
We are in it for the long haul so marriage has been discussed. This was really fun. I met some other guys that didn't work out but it gave me a chance to look at what was important to me. This was the first time I ever did an online dating sight, but did try another one for 2 weeks, at the same time I was here. There are some genuine folks out there and some knuckle heads, just have to stay positive (no pun intended).
We corresponded for a full month via email just to get to know each other really well first. First emailing through the site, then through our own email addresses and then phone conversations. Were attracted to each other because of "who" we were before ever meeting. When we finally met in person, we knew that we'd be great friends, we were just waiting to see if there was a physical connection too.
Met mid-week for a simple drink, less that two hour visit. Immediate physical connection. (we both used accurate photos of ourselves) Then went out that weekend and then been all set ever since. We both knew immediately after meeting that we didn't need to meet more people.
Neither one of us are looking for marriage, just long term commitment. We've both been married before so we have no plans for marriage. And, its still early on in the relationship, but we see no need to keep profile active.
My story is unique in that I met somebody off of this site who accepts and loves me for who I am, regardless of my condition. I was in an abusive marriage for 6 years which is when I was diagnosed with HSV and finally had the courage to leave him, so I am now divorced. A little less than a year ago, I was working in an area which was not my home but met a wonderful guy during the 9 months I was there. On our 1st date, we connected right away and have so much in common . Up to this day, our relationship is even stronger and we are starting to plan our future. Even though he is HSV negative, I told him of my condition on our 1st date, because I felt comfortable in doing so. This did not scare him away, but he researched the condition thoroughly and talked to a doctor so we can take all precautions. HSV is not even a topic in our conversation like it doesn't even exist and we are so happy together and living and enjoying life each day. We do live 3.5 hours apart but we see each other every other weekend and we will eventually move in together in the future.
Happinesss emailed me on 4/17/13. She took the time to address all the subject matter in my email. Although her email was concise, it was direct & to the point. After emailing for a day, we talked the next day & her openness was refreshing, and needed. The "walls" of defense were down. We did video chat a few times & immediately fell in love. After finishing my job in Hawaii, I took a 4 days vacation and travelled to her city to visit her. We've been together everyday.
I met my husband on this site almost two years ago. We got married New Year's Eve of last year. Our story seems too good to be true. PS is proof that things sometimes have a great way for working themselves out. I would have never had the medium to meet him otherwise.
I would be glad to share our story! We met through PS about 4 months ago. We have been together ever since. We text when we aren't with each other and are in love. We kept in touch on the computer for four weeks before physically speaking. We also spoke on the phone for probably a good month and a half before meeting. Since then it has been remarkable. No plans for marriage just yet, there have been rumors of cohabitation however and I am meeting his daughter this summer. So thank you so much for all that you and PS have done for us!
He and I began corresponding in October of 2010 in spite of not being in the same demographic area. It was an instant connection! We corresponded for two months and had our first date at a museum that was half way between our two states and them had a lovely dinner.
Although it is a two hour drive to see one another, and have been doing a long distance relationship, we have been inseparable from that first date. We are hoping to marry within this next year and my son and I will relocate to Illinois.
I believe your site has great potential to connect like minded people providing each person is honest and considerate.
Thanks, Positive Singles, for helping me find the man I waited a long time to find!
I got married after meeting my wife on this site. Thanks so much for everything you do! This site helped turn my life around!
My wife and I corresponded over the site only a few times...maybe 5-6 times before meeting in person. Ordinarily I would have corresponded longer before meeting. However, it was easy to meet up since we both lived in the same town. We went out to dinner at a local restaurant to start and really hit it off. I proposed one year later and we just got married in October thanks to your site.
One reason a lot of people leave websites do so because of a limited client base. PS definitely has the most active participation among all the sites I've used and I know your team is always trying to find ways to grow its customers. Keep up the great work and thank you so much for everything you do for us!
I have met someone on this website and I have no Interest in chatting with anyone else.
We corresponded for about 1 1/2 or 2 weeks before we finally met. I met picked her up at her house for our first date which consisted of going to a restaurant and then renting some movies and going back to her house to watch them. We hit it off soooo well and there is so much chemistry between us. And no, there's no plans for marriage as we've only known each other a few weeks.
Thank you very much!
Found my match through PS. THANK YOU
We chatted on line for exactly one week before we exchanged numbers. The first conversation lasted for 6 hours, (no joke). We were 104 miles apart but he came down the following weekend and it has been glorious ever since. It is just so amazing. No signs of marriage but the subject has come up.
I met my match...thanks so much for the help!
I tried the site more as a check to see who was out there, my ex wife had given me my gift and I felt that I would never find anyone…so I stayed in the marriage even though she cheated on me more times then I could count. Eventually I gave up (I didn’t have a picture up or anything, just a few words about how I felt….”I like to meet someone and not have “the gift” be the topic of conversation or have to worry about brining it up)…that was 2005…
I went to the web site in 2010, when I finally got divorced from my cheating wife and updated my location. The account was never paid for and it wasn’t until November of 2012 that I got an e-mail alert. I needed to pay to see the e-mail which is not a bad thing considering the result wasn’t just a woman on the other side of the planet; it was someone in my new home city. We e-mailed a few times both explaining why we didn’t have pictures up, we then texted pictures back and forth and decided to meet after about 3 weeks. We liked each other right off over lunch, then over the holidays we only talked and texted. After the New Year we went to dinner a few times and started hanging out all the time.
We went to away for a weekend together a few times and are now inseparable. Both of us are good earners and we are very compatible in what seems like every way…she has basically been living at my house and we are officially moving in together next month. Six months, yes everyone says it’s fast but we figure its right and I think we’d get married today if our families wouldn’t think we are crazy. We knew we were meant for each other when we started looking at our mutual “Gift” as a blessing…it brought us together, something that most likely would have never happened had we not been in the same boat. She said “I use to think it was the worst thing that ever happened in my life…now I think of it as the best because it brought us together.”
I met my match! I no longer need the site.
We corresponded for about 5 days before meeting in person. We both enjoy sushi, so we went to a great restaurant for sushi and sake. We drove separately to the restaurant. After dinner, we were enjoying each others company, so we decided to continue the date and went to a comedy club- had a great time!
Waaayyyy to early to think about marriage! I can't think of any tips, as I was happy w my brief time on the site. It's great that there is a site like yours, thank you!
To whom it may concern:
I met someone on this website, it is a good service.
My success story is still limited because we have only been seeing each other for a short period if time but I see a lot of potential. We corresponded a couple times through PS and for almost 6 months via Facebook/text. We finally met and hit it off better than I could of imagined. I deleted my profile because I expect this to last. Contact me back in 6 months and I will let you know how it has progressed.
