Going the Distance
After years of trying to come to terms with my diagnosis, I decided to join the site to meet people in the same situation as me. After a few not so stellar dates, I was ready to completely give up hope of finding some one I could really connect with. So, when wwalker sent me a wink, I did not respond immediately. Eventually after a few more e-mail exchanges, we set up a date and time to meet.
Advice to other members:
Little did I know that that one date would forever change my life. It was amazing. Great conversation, a romantic stroll, my fate sealed with a kiss. I could not believe my luck. I had met a handsome, intelligent, funny man who understood exactly what I was going through.
It has been almost two months since that fateful day, and although we live in different cities, we have spent every weekend together since. I have never been happier. We will live in the same city soon enough...
Never give up hope of finding love. It is important to know what you do and don't want. That way when someone truly special walks into your life, you will be able to recognize him/her. Good Luck!
