It would be nice if the non-paying members were able to view those who lived closest to them. I found it difficult to find people who lived close to me so I went on here a lot less. Also if you were only able to view those with the same "positive results" as you I think that would be a little more comforting to know. A lot of people are embarassed and probably are more reluctant to put up a photo if they know the entire site will be able to view them and their personal business.It would also be nice to be able to view the full answers on the Q & A section even if you're a non-paying member. Other than that I'm extremely happy that I was able to find this site. Definitely gives a lot of people hope who otherwise feel hopeless, lonely and isolated by their condition. I've tried to date normally with the hopes of revealing myself later on after getting to know someone and hoping that I was lucky enough to find the right guy with the right attitude who didn't mind. This left me with extreme anxiety, as I would constantly be dreading "the inevitable conversation" and dwelling on what they would say and how it might make me feel. It was a scary and very uncomfortable feeling. Now being with someone from on here none of that is the same...it's a wonderful feeling of freedom that I haven't felt since I was first diagnosed positive, so I THANK You from the bottom of my heart :)
I met the most magnificent man of PS. It's been two years now and I'm still as excited to see him as I was the first day we met. He's amazing and he's helped me see my worth, something no one else has ever done. I love him with all my heart and I can't wait until the next time I see his face.
Yes, you can meet and fall in love with someone over the innretet just as easily or if not easier than meeting someone in everyday life. The innretet makes it easy for people who are normally shy in person meeting the opposite sex. I am very shy when it comes to meeting or talking to men in public. The interent makes it easy for me to talk to and be myself without being nervous. As long as you take your time getting to know someone and are always honest, you too can find love, no matter where you met them. Good luck
I did the online dating because I was not going to find the man of my dreams in a bar. We lived 40 minutes away from each other so in the beginning it was very nice that we had that distance made for some long telephone conversations and we did get to know each other very well. As time went on we moved in together (after a year and half dating) and just were married this past July 15. It can happen you just have to be honest. Good luck!
Met a recommended member (a few miles outside our intended search radius) and we started exchanging emails on 7/7/12 until we agreed to meet for coffee, which turned into a 5 hour coffee-dinner-coffee get acquainted session and we were smitten. Followed up with more messaging and with another date which convinced us we were "The One for one another"!
It took me about a year, but I met a wonderful lady on this site. We're a couple of single parents with full-time jobs, who exchanged e-mails for quite a bit of time before we met, but grew into a very happy relationship.
My partner and I did chat on PS for exactly a month, before our first meeting, it was great, we both can understand each other, we swapped telephone numbers and messaged each-other many times a day. He finally decided it was about time we meet, so he booked a ticket from Perth to come down to Adelaide and meet me. :) I went to the airport and picked him up and took him to the hotel that he reserved, and I am very happy to say that out relationship is going great, and YES there is a plan of marriage and we're waiting for my graduation from uni to finalize the whole plan. I personally wanted to thank you, and your wonderful site, because 7 months ago when I joined this site, i was so so upset and depressed. Now, I can feel happiness once more. So, thank you!
I just will like to thank PS from letting meet someone so great. I struggled with coping, with the fact that I was that lucky 1 out of 5 guys to contract H. I met a wonderful, caring, beautiful woman. That takes my breath away every time I see or converse with her. In the short period of time we have been talking she has proven what a stunning and amazing person she is, in and out. I couldn't ask for anything more. I can say dealing with H in the beginning was the most difficult thing I every dealt with. When I first signed up for this site, I spent a great time reading success stories and I never believed it. I always thought love could never start over a website. I never thought love was such a big part of my life, those days spending on my couch, feeling lonely, angry, mad at the world, is days I will never want to see again. Now, I will appreciate every cuddling moment, the times when she wants to kiss, date night, and the other thing that comes with love, will never be taking for granted! When I thought of love, I thought of me smashing or falling into it. Not looking for it on a WEBSITE! What sucks it took all this to happen to me to appreciate and to find someone like her. I can truly say I smashed into to love and I’m glad god handpicked her for me! Good luck to everyone here and I hope and pray that you are blessed, as well.
I found someone very special from your web site:). You have an awsome website! I think that this site helps infected people in many ways. We are not passing the disease on. We can be honest,open and comfortable. There is someone for everyone, and you made this possible. Thankyou!!!!!!!!
I found her beautiful and very fitting to my life so I had to message her! I'm deployed to Afghanistan right now so it's really hard to date or even talk to girls back at home. She made it easy for me fall for her. She's the best woman I've ever been lucky enough to have in my life. Also, meeting on this site means that there is no stressful or embarrassing "talk" to have. There's no judgement or fear, just romance. She's everything I ever wanted and more. Thank you Positivesingles.com for your site.
At first we sent a few emails back and forth, since we live a few provinces away we both new how hard it would be. But the emails led to texting which follow by phone calls and then that led to skyping. We instantly connected and we both knew it was worth the long distance risk. All I can say is love is always out there and some people are worth the wait. He is worth the distance and I fall for him more everyday.
Can I just say Wow! Even in the hardest of circumstances, I found a wonderful man who I connect with on the deepest of levels. Even in a long distant relationship, in which we find ourselves in currently, we continue to strive to pursue a long term commitment. I am daily thankful that I found him!
I met an amazing guy on here and couldn't be happier. Of course I was skeptical about meeting someone online but I took a chance and after talking with someone I met on here for a little while we decided to meet up in person. We've been dating for over a month now and I couldn't be happier.
He and I e-mailed each other for a couple of months and then we talked on the phone. we ended up talking for hours and realized how much we had in common. We arranged to meet the following day at an Olive Garden restarraunt. Everything went great and the only regret we have is why we didn't meet sooner. We are very happy and are anxious to spend our lives together.
No plans for marriage. We have been together almost 7 months. We corresponded for a few weeks before we met in person. Our first date was New Year's Eve day and we went hiking and out to lunch. Our second date was New Year's Day we took a motorcycle ride to a quaint town and did some window shopping and went out for lunch. He is the second serious boyfriend from the site. Both of them being long distance relationships. I think that the site is wonderful! The only draw back is that I live in a rural area and so the distance is always a factor in meeting men. More people need to be on the site, but that is of course your goal! I can't think of any changes that I would recommend. My tip to those trying to find someone is to be willing to go out of the box and meet someone who is not normally your type, and to just keep updating pictures and sending out winks and emails.
I have found a partner through the positive singles site. I am glad I took the time to check out the site and I believe it is a wonderful way of meeting people with similar condition. Thank you and I would recommend the positive singles dating site.
I found a great friend on here but I have found my future husband off line. We are very happy, and I want to thank you for having this website. It is really nice to know that there are others in the same boat as we are. Thanks again!
Patrick and I emailed for a day or two then the phone and two weeks later we had our first date. He was such a warm, gentle giant. The next week we went out again and I just fell in love. It's been a month and a half but I think I found the man of my dreams.
