I have met and shared some quality time with one individual I met on this site; but, he does live a few hours away and is now, with an old "flame" as he put it. However, we do text and talk every few months and try to maintain a friendship. I do think that distance is a big problem for most people (I did have a reply to an email which stated that "yes" we do seem to have some similar interests....but, we are states apart. At this older senior level (age-wise not mind-set) I also feel we get more set in our ways, those fortunate enough to have grandchildren nearby do not want to make a move or....health and/or caregiving obligations hinder moving on.
I am presently dating someone from the website and the relationship looks very promising.
The lady that I met, on our first date I could feel that we bonded well. We had a very enjoyable first date and enjoyed each other's company willingly. So I would like to see our relation flourish without distractions which is why I am stopping my present billing. With all hopes of a brighter future Thanks Positive Singles.
Dealing with an std can be devastating and it can make you feel very alone in the world. Your site made me realize that I wasn't alone. Getting to talk to people in my same situation changed my mind and attitude about myself for the better.
I joined your site and immediately went on a couple of dates with some very nice ladies. I ended up running across one that is absolutely amazing. We met at a restaurant over a week ago and we have spent everyday together since. The chemistry is unlike anything I've ever experienced. I can see myself spending the rest of my life with her and she said she feels the same way so we both deleted our PS accounts. Who knows how or where we will end up but the future is looking bright for both of us lol.
Your site is wonderful! Thank you for introducing me to possibly the love of my life.
Found someone on PositiveSingles.com.I made an amazing connection with a wonderful man and I am hopeful of something long term but I'm really not sure of what will happen. I find the community of the site to be encouraging.
I met John on the site about three days after joining. He actually reached out to me and we really hit it off. We are only about three hours away from each other, so we will officially meet very soon. Since we exchanged contact information, and due to our busy schedules, we have been texting each other non stop. Thank you so much for developing a site like this. Before meeting him, I had no hope for my future as far as relationships go. Today, I am excited to see where our relationship goes. I will keep you updated. :)
I have met someone and I am flying to the US to meet him.I have met someone, I will update after I have been to
the US and met in person,I am going to spend 3 weeks with him, he is then going to come to Australia in March to see me here.We will see how we get along after we finally meet.
I met the love of my life on this site in February 2014. We recently got married and couldn't be more happier. If it wasn't for this site, I don't know if our paths would have crossed. Thank you for giving us hope even in the mist of what seems like a hopeless situation.
I met my true love on this site in February 2014. He made the first contact by sending me a message where he introduced himself, told me a little bit about himself. Even though he didn't have a picture in his profile I was intrigued because it was well crafted, it seemed genuine, plus he was looking for real love no games and that's exactly what I was looking for. I responded to his message and requested he send me a pic/s. I have to admit I wasn't really impressed with his pictures when he sent them. He didn't really "fit" the mold of what the man I was looking for was supposed to look like. But what caught my attention the most was just his enthusiasm about my responses and how he hoped and prayed that "I was the one". I just knew that with this guy I won't get the whistles and bells that I was so used to from my previous player Romeo(s). With him I could tell that I would get mutual love, stability, commitment, something real and long lasting.
We corresponded for 2 weeks before meeting due to distance. In that two weeks we texted non-stop every single day "ALL" day long, we also spoke on the phone everyday after work. We were both very excited and falling for each other and couldn't wait to meet each other in person. It just felt right. We told each other about our life journey, life experiences, we poured our hearts out and left no stone unturned. We allowed ourselves to be vulnerable, our hearts were completely naked. We were just so compatible in so many ways, and our life experiences were just so similar, we just got each other...you know. Still we had yet to meet and we were concerned about whether or not there will be any chemistry between us when we met in person. We also promised each other that if (God forbid) we met and didn't feel any initial attraction/chemistry, we were not gonna give up on this. We were still gonna make this work, we were gonna learn to love each other if necessary. That's how special we felt about us being together.
After 2 weeks of emailing, texting and phone conversations we were more than ready to meet. He came over to my city and we met for a nice dinner. There was an immediate attraction and our chemistry was just out of this world, we felt like two teenagers all over again...it was crazy and so long awaited. When he stepped out of the car he had a huge smile that made me weak on my knees, I couldn't help but jump into his arms for a huge hug and he gave me our very first kiss...it was pure magical.
He travelled back and forth almost every weekend. We recently got married and he made the big sacrificial move to my city, giving up everything for me. We are now all settled in into our new life and he managed to get a job around here before his big move. I couldn't be more appreciative and grateful.
After a string of failed relationships and a failed marriage I had moments when I thought I wouldn't find the right person. The health issue made it seem all the more impossible. So, if you are searching for that one person who will make your heart smile, please don't give up. He/she is out there. It may take a short or what seem a long time to find them but trust me when you do, you will forget about all the pain, hurt, frustration, disappointment etc that you had to endure. Plus, you tend to hold on to them and appreciate them so much more when you were dragged through the mud and had to crawl out of the pit of hell to find yourself in their arms at last.
May our story inspire you in your search for true love. Don't give up she/he is out there. Remember, you might have to take a chance on someone who doesn't exactly fit the mold of how your man/woman should look like. Don't be caught up on things that aren't that important at the end. You just might be surprised by the results.
P.S. Am sorry I couldn't attach any of our pics, he is very adamant about keeping his identity hidden.
I had very little sucess at first on this site as most people were on the young side. I guess I turned him down on another site, probably due to my situation. Then I found him again on this site. We talked a while then met a couple weeks ago in person. We are already planning marriage and I am so happy! I did not think he would relocate for me but he is going to and we will try to blend out families into one happy family.
I recently signed up for an account. I just moved to St. Petersburg, Florida from my hometown of St. Augustine, Florida. I moved here to start my career and I figured it would be a nice change to date people who share my diagnosis. I have found that most men are instantly turned off and shut down when I tell them about my HSV.
I browsed some profiles, sent some winks and was pleasantly surprised when one particular man messaged me back. I was signed up for just under two weeks when we had our first date. I was expecting to meet people and have several dates at the very least. What I was not expecting to find was an amazing, kind, extremely attractive, and intelligent man who was extremely compatible with me. Not only did I find a man who shared my diagnosis, but I found the man I had looked for over the last six years!
I wholeheartedly believe it is no coincidence I met my match on PS. Even if it didn't work out with him, this site has given me the faith that the right person is within reach and that a diagnosis (whatever it is) is not a death sentence to my love life.
Thank you PS!
Just a quick note to let you know that my match and I, a quick 3 1/2 months after meeting on your site, are getting married. We are eternally grateful for a site like this allowing for those with our condition to meet up shamelessly. We thank you for the site and hope others find the true happiness that we have.
Abby and Josh
Robert and I met online in 2012... our first meeting was 4/15/12... we met at a Starbucks for hot chocolate and coffee...I liked him immediately. He was nervous...I know this now...and didn't seem as interested as me ") We started seriously dating over the summer and we actually got married 4/15/13... we have been married over a year and our lives have only gotten better ") We owe it all to PS online dating and we thank you very very very much!
Penny and Robert
I met a guy about a month after I joined January 2013. We emailed back and forth for about 2 weeks before we exchanged numbers. We started texting everyday then talking on the phone once or twice a week. In May of 2013 we finally met face to face. We met up at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Denton,tx about an hr from Dallas. I live in Houston and he lives in Dallas. We kept talking and visiting each other and started officially dating January 2014. He is my first love I have plans to move to Dallas next year. No plans for marriage but I'm very happy and thankful it has made the coping process a lot smoother. In fact I'm going to see him in 2 days :)
Suggestions for improvement is maybe a "last time active" time stamp so other users can know if the person is even active on their account and features that encourage participation since according to the forums there is not much going on I was blessed to find someone so amazing
Found my match, we have been dating for almost five months and our relationship is very strong and we are in love and continue dating. I met him under a different user name.
We corresponded for almost one week and met in person at a campus college and took a long walk talking about ourselves as well on our condition. Sometime that we both want is being honest from day one and that has continue until now.
We do have plans for marriage but in the feature. I need to finish college first but we talk about the feature together and blend our family.
Awesome man with a good heart, believes in God ! and I did find my true man! A blessing from God!
Found the love of my life. Debbi and I corresponded for a little over a month before meeting (November until the end of December 2012). We immediately liked one another enough to start dating. By July 2013, we were convinced we couldn't be better matched having each been through two past marriages. We were mature, me at 63 and her at 55. We decided to get married that November (2013) and have not been happier since (married 10 months now). We are really into hiking, Craft beer tasting, and now doing half marathons. Life doesn't get any better. :)
Thank you Positive Singles!
To be perfectly honest, the whole experience has been kind of creepy. I gave it an honest effort at first. I chose a few profiles that interested me, but they never responded. And 95% of the guys that contacted me were outside of my area (I particularly specified my own area), and another 4% were just plain creepy or only after one thing. I had actually given up, and had cancelled my subscription. I thought I had deleted my account as well, but apparently my profile was still visible. So I was quite surprised one day to see a wink in my inbox. I looked at his profile, it said he was local, sounded interesting, so I paid the month subscription to write back to him. Turns out he is close (about 2.5 hours away by car, 30 minutes by plane, which is really nothing by AK standards), but not truly local, but we hit it off to the point where we're going to see where this goes. It's only been a week and a half, and certainly no plans of marriage at this point, and no, I do not wish to share photos or anything else. If this doesn't work out for us, I will go back to meeting people the old fashioned way... in person.
I found a beautiful young lady in my personal life and we are very happy together. I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to the creation of this website and the other professionals who provided useful information as well. Through my experience on this site I had met/dated 3 different women and developed an appreciation for the struggles other people have had to go through while being single and having an STD. One of those women who I developed a friendship with actually gave me the courage to "have the talk" with the girl I am dating now and I'm very glad I did. It turns out she also has the same affliction as I do and we have a lot in common. During the past 4+ years I have used this site, I felt that the number of people I had access to in certain parts of the country was very slim. A suggestion would be to advertise this site on television or magazines or newspapers, etc. I felt that in comparison to the other popular dating sites, this one is less known. I understand that this one pertains more to a specific group of people, but I still think the site could grow significantly more if more people knew about it. This would also translate into
more money generated for you and more people who could have a greater chance of finding someone who they identify with. Anyway, thank you again for your service and hopefully this is good bye forever!
We only talked for a few weeks before we decided to meet. We texted every day, all day and got very close over text. He drove 2 hours to meet me, and we spent the weekend together. We have been together ever since. After four months, he moved to Columbus to be with me. Adam and I, and my three year old daughter got an apartment together. We of course have our ups and downs like any other couple, but we are doing great!
He and I just had a baby boy, named Mason a week and a half ago. :) We now have a happy little family, and things are going great. As for marriage, hopefully it will happen sometime in the near future. We will see how things go! :) We are both very thankful that we found eachother, and we always laugh and talk about our first conversations on this site.
A few weeks last August wr started talking and met Labor day weekend...we met at a restaurant for dinner..we lived four hours apart...but after 10 months of long distance we moved in together..and yes plans for marriage down the road :) i do hope to inspire others.. This road hasnt been easy so its nice to finally be where im supposed to be :)
I am dating someone so I would prefer to not have a paid subscription, but would like to still keep my profile.
I am currently dating someone that I met on your site. Hoping it goes well. :) I like this site a lot.
Thank you, but I have met a woman on your site and we are currently dating exclusively at this time. A few months back I gave up on your site because there were little interested women in my area, so I feel fortunate to be in this situation and thank Positivesingles.com for being here... It has freed me from having to disclose the Elephant I carry to a woman that is not in my shoes.
I have been married 23 years and recently separated/divorced for well over a year. I came to this site because I tried the
other sites (before I realized a site like this one existed) and was in a constant battle of disclosure once I might meet a woman - the fear of that alone kept me from ever meeting anyone. I dreaded that moment.
Then I found this site. Positive singles.com and was instantly relieved to see all the people in my same boat - being treated like a leaper and more degrading thoughts reactions and comments.
I paid for a month - and no results. I was not happy that there were little to no women in my area. I am not interested in doing long distance.
I cancelled my service but kept getting updates on my email. Finally - months later I got a wink.
I paid again reluctantly for one month.
I met with a nice woman for coffee only expecting to maybe be there a few hours - we spent 7 1/2 hours most of it realizing how much we both had in common - it was such a good time.
After a week of spending lots of time together and going on day trips we decided to date exclusively.
Thanks for keeping the updates coming to my email and not giving up on me the way I gave up on you positivesingles!
I'm glad you were there for me.
If this works out - you'll be my friend for life.
