I have hopefully found a loving partner who after being told about my condition, accepted me and even thought I was using it as an excuse to back away from her, we'll see what happens, but that is pretty awesome.
In 2010 I send him some winks and try to get his attention but we were not gold members so nothing happened. In 2011 I became a gold member and first thing I did was send him a message and we connected. From the beginning we got along very well and we started dating right away. We just celebrated on Oct. 11 a year of dating and actually I move in with him. We have had our ups and down and downs again but I am so in love with him. I know we will grew strong together I just want to make him happy.
I met my husband in March 2012.I was fed up of meeting guys who were not serious.We emailed and skyped every day from the first wink.So we had more contact than most people do who meet off line!Our love of motorcycles,country living and fine dining brought us closer!Having Herpes helped us cross all social boundaries,class ,culture and race.I travelled from London for 13 hours across the ocean to be with the man I love . I had given up on thinking I would ever meet the right man and was miserable single for 4 years.My husband too was unhappy and had been single for ages working and bringing up three children alone.Now I feel I have everything I dreamed of.A kind exciting loving husband and a lovely family.I am also much happier living in the sunny south in the USA.Never give up hope..always follow your heart and dreams..x
We emailed each other first, then texted each other for a couple of days. Neither one of us had a profile picture, but I liked what he had to say in his profile and thats what caught my interest! We talked on the phone for a couple of hours each night for 2 weeks! We finally decided that we liked each other ALOT and wanted to meet. He visited me first and we went out to eat and watched the football game together, I showed him around the city. We had a great time! We live about 3 1/2 hours apart and he actually lives 30 minutes from where my sister lives. (coincidence?) I had plans already to visit my sister the following weekend, so we were able to spend 3 weekends in a row together!
We have so much in common, same morals and beliefs, and we are both very easy going people. He is an awesome guy and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for us. Additionally, It is so nice to not have to have "the talk" with him! It feels good to know that we have an understanding and don't judge each other because of "it". We have been dating for almost 2 months now. We came to a decision that we wanted to date each other exclusively and therefore wanted to deactivate our accounts. Thanks!
Thank you all for the use of your service but I am no longer interested in meeting anyone anymore. I met the mother of my children through your service.
I believe her screen name was kmafrica. We fell in love thanks to your site for linking us together. Eventually we had twins but she didn't want to get married or start a family with me. I came back to positive singles out of some sort of self pity and overwhelming desire to re-create what I had lost forever. If you could be so kind as to help me move on and do the work of deleting my account for me I would be eternally grateful. Hopefully, I will become the most patient person I know.
Thanks for everything. Because of the hard work maintaining your site, I was able to meet and capture for a short time the love and affection of the most outstanding individual I have ever met. I learned from all of this that love stolen is not love.
Found someone! We've only been married a short time now, but she's an incredible woman and we're very happy! I should have deleted this account a little sooner and I am just now getting around to it!
I met a lot of very interesting women on this site! Thankfully, I've found the one that I'm pretty sure I'll be spending the rest of my life with! Getting my profile up and running, and the interaction you make available is just as good as any other dating site that's out there! The only "critique" that I could give is just to stay current with technology, keep things fresh and unique and I'm sure your web site will be around for a long time!
I met possibly, the love of my life just about two weeks ago, after only being on your site for about a week. We met for coffee, went out the following weekend, hung out and from the than on, it's been pretty HOT!
We talked and emailed from feb 5th of this year until March 10th before meeting at a coffee shop to see if we were attracted to each other in person. We had already hit it off on the phone, talking every day, so when we met the sparks flew right away. He asked me to marry him after only 3 short months, but I said yes and we are still engaged with plans to marry next year. We decided on a cannon beach wedding at the Stephanie Inn in Cannon beach, OR.
I do not really have tips except maybe giving people a short free trial to other members because most of us do not want to pay the fee! I was on your site for 4 years before I found Michael. (he was Mick2011 and also cancelled his account) He has inspired me to do great things and I have inspired him, it is a match made in heaven!
We emailed for about 2 months, then we met at Starbucks. It was love at first sight. Then we waited a week to get physical.
We are trying to take it slow so we haven't planned to get married although we are in a committed relationship. We don't live together but are together all the time.
Tips? For us, extended correspondance was good because we got to know each other very well BEFORE we actually met. Both of our 'pickers' are broken, so this was the best way for us - since we are both over -sexed, if we had met immediately , we would have dived into a physical relationship and missed out on the emotional relationship. We like to say that the sex we now enjoy is the icing on the cake and the best part of our relationship is the love and respect we have for each other . But the sex is also the best.
Thank you. I have met someone on your site. We have been talking all week. First date this weekend. Let you know. :) Just going on first date sat. Let us get through that and we will see. 2 hrs on phone every night.
I was actually contacted by my current girlfriend the very night that I added a paid subscription and finished my profile. We emailed back and forth a bit, moved onto a phone call, and here were are now months later
having spent a fantastic summer together and vacationing together. Lots of time spent together with romance and adventure. Just an excellent match to each other really and was fated. Due to the nature of thesite, we found that we were just immediately open and honest with each other about everything from date number 1. We were also instantly smitten with each other. A few weeks later I was asking her to be my girlfriend when we were out at a very romantic dinner. Wish the best or luck for all other members that haven't found their match yet.
We were both respectively diagnosed with HSV-2 in the early 2000's. I was 18 & stupid, he wasn't careful either. When we contracted HSV-2, there was a stigma attached to STD's...like you were dirty. There also wasn't much discussion about it & I didn't really know anything about it. Anyway. needless to say, dating was difficult. I always eventually had to have "the talk" with the guys I dated & they never ended well. In 2008, a guy I dated (who I finally told) mentioned this site. He was a good friend (still is) and told me about it. I thought I'd check it out. Within a week, I had gone on 3 dates. All were great guys, and who knew that 1 of those 3 guys would be my future husband. We dated for 2 years, and we've been married now for 2 years. We never have to have "the talk" and it's almost as though neither of you have it because there is nothing to be ashamed of anymore. Plus, we can empathize together when we have outbreaks, and sometimes even make jokes.
We wrote back and fourth for about 10 days, then spoke on the phone a couple of times before meeting for coffee. We met at a coffee shop the first time, and spoke for more than an hour. We then planned a second date for breakfast, and a third for a movie. The fourth date was a hike, and we've pretty much been together ever since.
We both keep telling ourselves and each other we are keeping it light and taking it slow, but we both feel an incredibly strong bond and sense of commonality. Neither of us really wants to get married again, at least at this point.
I met Julie here and we went to dinner several times and decided to be exclusive! I have been on some of the other H sites and they cant hold a candle to PS. In fact I almost signed on to private herpes dating until I ran a search in my area and it came back with 2 results, after getting off the floor from laughing I went right back to you all!
I've finally decided to respond to this. I don't mind sharing our story. Yes, we are getting married at the end of this year. At this time we have decided to not come out to our families regarding our diseases. We emailed and chatted with each other for one month before deciding to meet. But we were both on the site for at least a couple of months before we stumbled upon each other's profiles.We decided to meet at a cafe in my hometown. I made sure that we both met there on our own and there was no reason for having either of us pick the other up (for safety reasons).
