We met in August of 2009 for coffee. We didn't hit it off right away. As a matter of fact, we both ended up going on to date other people. Over the next two years our friendship grew quite a bit and we leaned on each other through some life changes and other difficult relationships. In mid 2011 we started falling back together. Here we are, a year and a half later. Today we both officially deleted our accounts. That's what WE call a big step. No matter where this road leads us, I can confidently say I found my best friend.
The first thing I want to say is that I am so very thankful for PositiveSingles..
When I first discovered that I had this "illness", I thought I would be alone forever, a woman dying lonely and sad.
I decided to surf the net, and see if I could find a dating site that was strictly for people that were in my shoes. I found more than a few, but all the other sites seemed to be geared towards other types of issues. I had absolutely 0% luck even in finding ONE potential date on ANY of those other sites. Not one date!
Anyhow, I was a member on PS for about a year, before I met my husband. There were times when I did get bummed out, feeling I would never find my knight. I did go on some potential dates, (and I must say, all of them were with good, decent people; I did not feel uncomfortable at all, and though they were not the one for me, I am sure their other half is somewhere out there in the beautiful PS sea :) ) I felt that my soulmate was still out there searching for me.
When I finally met my husband, the skies parted, the heavenly angels sang! lol. I fell in love with every single part of him, perfections and faults, alike. It turned out that my soulmate was in another state, hundreds of miles away, and had I not had this site, I would have gone my entire life without ever having met him. I can't even fathom that!
Ladies and Gents, don’t lose hope! Just because you have this issue in your life, doesn't mean that it's all over; in fact, I promise you, this is only the beginning!!! When you feel blue, think of it this way: Had you not had this issue to deal with, you may never have met your lifelong soulmate!
There were days where I did feel super sad, but guess what? It is because of this "issue" that I even had the chance to meet, date, and marry my love.
And in fact out of love, 2 became 3! We now have a beautiful bouncing baby boy, my so proud husband's namesake!
Thank you, PositiveSingles!! If it were not for you, I never would have met my other half! There is nothing in the world I could say that could ever hold a candle to the depth of gratitude I have for this site!
We conversed for nearly 3 months before actually meeting. I had been a little reluctant to meet initially due to the distance between us (nearly 5 hrs). But when we finally did meet the chemistry was immediate. I have been waiting for her all my life :)
I was really excited to find this site, except I was never good at talking to more than one person. But I made myself get on here and actually look around and give people a chance that I wouldn't be able to find on my own. After a failed first try, and a few dates with a very nice guy that I just didn't click with, I received an e-mail from Jon. He lived all the way in Georgia and I'm in Oklahoma City, which proceeded to make me think of every reason there would be no point in meeting him. But after a discussion with a friend, I decided to at least meet up with him over the holidays, give it a shot though I was 100% doubtful we would connect and I would ever see him again.
The instant he walked into the restaurant on our first meeting, my negativeness was taken down a notch. I thought the conversation might be difficult since we never spoke previously through e-mails to get to know each other, unlike prior dates I had been on. But our ideas and likes/dislikes and laughter came within seconds. Later, he talked me into meeting his sister and her friend at Groovys. I mainly went quite apprehensively and only because there is a confetti cannon. But by the end of the night, my cheeks were hurting from laughing so much. I have never in my pre-hsv years dated a man willing to dance to Footloose in private, let alone public around me. I was amazed and I still am. He continues to prove my negative nature wrong and surprises me even from a few states away. We will continue to see each other monthly, due to our jobs moving is currently difficult but is planned for the future.
The service is awesome. I have met a beautiful young lady through your website who I feel will be the love of my life and that there is no reason to search anymore. She is truly the lady that I would like to devote my life to. She and I have both decided to deactivate our accounts as a step towards our future. We truly thank you for your website as it has provided a way for persons with STD's to still have a life in terms of meeting persons of the opposite sex without worry and pressure.
In closing, we both thank you for the experience,
Although I have not been able to get around the City Daily Photo Blogs as much as I would have liked these past few mnthos, especially since the last heart attack, I'd like to drop in at this time to wish you and your family the very best wishes for Christmas.From Curly at .
I found love on here. He is amazing, and, while we are taking it one day at a time, we know where we are headed, and it is hand in hand.
The amazing man whom I met on yours website proposed to me Friday night. We are getting married late this summer! Thanks, have a great day :)
I joined PositiveSingles on June 10, 2012 and within a week Tom and I were talking on the phone. We met for the first time on June 24, 2012 and had dinner, took a walk and got to know each other. We have now been dating for seven months and couldn't be happier. Not only to we share a love of horses and animals in general but found we have quite a bit in common. If it had not been for PositiveSingles we would have never met. Thank you!
I was on this site for a couple years and went on a few dates. Most were only a one-time thing because I could just tell from the first date we didn't click. I was losing hope and would come on here to read the success stories, and I just remember being so jealous and wanting what they had so bad. Then right around Christmas time, cuz nobody wants to be alone on Christmas, I started browsing through profiles. Everyone from around my area didn’t really impress me, and I wasn’t very open to long distance but I thought oh what the heck. I started searching from other states just for fun not really expecting anything. Then I came across Kris's profile, I was immediately drawn to him. I sent him a wink; I didn’t think he would respond because I wasn’t a member. But around new years I had a message waiting for me. We started emailing each other and our emails were always really long, I remember being so excited to check my email throughout the day. We talked on there for a week of just constant messaging throughout the day, and then moved to the phone. We had a great connection, and he impressed me with each day of getting to know him. I found he had a big heart, he had his life together, and we had a lot of things in common. Within a couple weeks we decided to skype each other. I was extremely nervous; it was a little awkward because I was too distracted by his smoldering good looks and kept blushing throughout the entire conversation. But he was very sweet and we continued to skype and talk to each other throughout the day. Then within a couple weeks he decided to come down and see me. I usually work on the weekends, but we managed to make it work. It’s a 3 hour drive from where we live so he got up at 7 in the morning, and arrived at 10 am just to spend the day with me before I had to go to work at 4. I commute and go to college so I was still living with my parents at the time. It was a little awkward because my parents and I were meeting him for the first time. I was so nervous but when I finally saw him I was overjoyed. He was great with my parents and I offered to drive us to lunch. But being the sweet gentleman he is, he refused to allow me to drive (even after all that way) because he wanted to open the car door for me. We got lunch at Pei Wei, and then went to Dave and Busters to play games, where he stole a kiss from me, it was perfect. Afterwards we went and saw Gangster Squad, and got coffee when it was over. He dropped me back at me house so I could change and go to work, and the entire time at work all I could think about was our amazing first date. We are in a relationship, he asked me to be his girlfriend so I’m happy to say I’m finally deleting my profile, yeaaa! Looking forward to the adventures ahead :)
My match and I have been together for a few months now and progressing happily... we both finally feel like normal average individuals because we both have hpv but it isn't, nor will it ever be an issue for us. we spoke for approximately two weeks before we met and also went on our first date. I am making plans to move closer to him and look forward to the future for us.. thank you so much for your site, without which i never would have met the sweetest most wonderful man. Thank you for all you have done.
I finally met someone on here and its going really well, very happy!! Been 2 months now and we are serious about one another and have both cancelled our accounts in order to pursue this relationship. Thank you!!
We sent only a few emails on the site before we started texting and talking to each other. We met at a mall with in a few weeks, just before Christmas. We did a little shopping. Since then, we have had several dates and are currently planning a vacation together somewhere tropical. No plans of marriage at this point. We will see how things progress. Thanks!!
We corresponded for a few weeks regularly, a couple of months sporadically. He lives in North Carolina, I live in Texas. I went there to meet him because we were spending hours on the phone and it was taking up a lot of our time and we felt like we had a lot in common and we were very attracted to each other. We met and spent four days together and decided to be exclusive and dive into the adventure of a long distant relationship. We will see how it goes. Thanks very much for your site and good service. Thanks PS!!
We chatted back a couple times. We both decided to meet at a local steak house in person...great date and awesome to start thing off honest with no worries of STD's. Marriage....well I'll have to wait and see about that but so far so good.
I think I found my match and we are happy together and it's a good thing to stop !! Not to chat with so many woman .. and thank you guys for the site and the help.Well thank you guys for your great serves.
From first contact until actual meeting was about a year but there was just a little contact initially and then we picked it up. I would say there was only about a week from "hello again" to "how about meeting for a glass of wine?" We did talk on the phone...I think, prior to meeting but maybe not. At any rate, it was a Friday night, we met at Bonefish Grill for the glass and ended up enjoying each other's company enough to have that stretch out to dinner at the bar. No plans for marriage; it's been only 4 months since we first met in person and for folks my age, that's just getting warmed up. But we are a couple and have a wonderful relationship and share many, many dimensions of compatibility. Unfortunately for you as soon as I established that this one is a keeper, after only a couple weeks I committed to her and myself that I wouldn't go on the site and subject myself to that temptation. And that's the thing really, I'm a one gal guy.So there you have it. I hope it helps someone else like me. It's a wonderful world with the right partner and I believe the right one's out there for each of us. Our job is to live the most authentic life possible, find our joy and then remain open to her. With a little bit of luck she'll find us. :-)
All the best,
Hi, well me and my boyfriend started talking through the site and emailed about a week then texted each other and prob the second week we met. He came to my town, two hrs from him to see me in a café and went back home the same night. We have a lot in common and appreciates me for all I have. We both love the simple things in life. We plan on moving in together in like 6-8 months. For now on the weekends we drive to see each other. Everything happens for a reason and I'm very grateful to have found him on this site. We have been dating for about two months and I'm happier than I've been in awhile. Thank you!
