Both had checked out this site, each had only been interested in one person - ourselves! So we messaged a bit, then met in a park on a lovely sunny day, walking our dogs and chatting. We hit it off straight away, found each other very attractive - and without the hassle of explaining our medical situation to others! WE talk daily, meet often, and are making plans to introduce to our families, plans for a holiday abroad, well, lots of plans. So without a doubt: a real success story! Thanks a lot and - goodbye.
Soon after I found out I had this I had pretty much given up on life. Then I spoke with a fantastic woman.. Sadly she was states away but on her vacation after talking with me for quite some time on skype we met and ever since have been together. She moved with me and transferred her job to my new duty station and has even been through a deployment with me and stuck by my side. A woman that had been hurt gave me her heart and I gave her mine. Hope all of you are lucky enough to find a woman like her. Good luck and keep your hopes high because there is life beyond all of this!
I had only one response and that was good. In fact we have arranged to meet. I think that the problem for me with internet dating in general is that most women are put off by my age but when I meet women in other situations they probably think I'm younger than I am and by the time they find out my age it isn't so much of an issue for them. It's a strange but a very ingrained human characteristic to be attracted only by people younger or the same age as yourself.
I have met a very nice lady on this website and I have decided to remove myself from it as I want to concentrate on her - she is doing the same. We live within five miles of each other and chances are we would never have met each other had we not been for this website. Thank You!
I have met some one and we have started dating and and we are really moving forward with a relationship. This site was a big blessing to both of us. I will keep in touch and if something major happens i will update my success story.
I absolutely love this site! I found what appears to be my perfect match on this site. Wasn't easy, but well worth the cost of membership. I have said a lot of wonderful things to others in the same boat as I who is looking for a relationship.
Thanks for an amazing site!!
I've meet someone on this site he is traveling to me very soon so I thought I'd wait a while before messaging anyone else. Thank you so much x this is an adventure and its changed my life, made me look at things differently (for the better)
I found my angel on here, and she is the one I am meant to be with. I can't thank you enough for the site, I almost was ready to give up and bam..!!!!! there she was, I am so in love with her, she is awesome...
I'm fortunate and found a wonderful man thru positive singles with the same conditions as I. He has deleted his profile and out of respect for him, I too, am deleting mine. I've been so lonely and isolated, having herpes, he has brought light to my life again. No wedding plans as of yet but I can tell you he has been one of the great loves of my life. Thank you positive singles!!!
PS Customer Service,
Thank you for the e-mail! I believe we talked for over a month before we met. He lives in Michigan but has family here in Cleveland so I got to meet him around Thanksgiving. From the beginning, I was afraid of the distance but he was such a sweetheart and I was immediately attracted to his personality. He is 4 years older than I am, with an established self-owned business, and is not afraid to settle down....everything I wanted in a man. It all has been happening so fast, but I really feel good about him. Putting our diseases right out there in the open has made dating fun again for me....without the worry of having to diclose my condition to a guy I like before we have sex and the fear of them running away screaming lol. Using this site definitely lifted a weight off my shoulders, so thank you! I can see myself being with him for the rest of my life (and possibly even moving to Michigan for him!) and I have never felt that connection before without second guessing myself.
One thing about your site...I've been on other free dating sites and I have really liked the ones that offer lots of personality tests and then they match profiles according to everyone's answers. So maybe try to incorporate some of those tests, because many of the people that contacted me had absolutely nothing in common with me and wasted my time. Just a thought, take with it what you will :-)
Thanks again and happy holidays!

After years of using another STD website, I decided to sign up for PS but naturally did not have any expectations that this site was any better than the last. Shortly after I created my profile and corresponded with another person on the site, we decided to meet in NYC two weeks ago. We instantly felt a mutual attraction and since then have decided to both delete our profiles and start a relationship. I am very thankful for PS. I know now that I would have never met someone so special on any other site. Thanks fora great website and the love of my life!
This match was one of the first that I corresponded with since being back online recently,We met for lunch about 2 weeks after emailing each other, and we were very casual about the whole thing in the beginning. He was very respectful and we both took our time. We decided to meet for lunch and have been seeing each other ever since. Both of us are on the same page about only dating one person at a time which is nice. At this point, we want to spend time together and see where it goes!! Thank you for providing this service so that people in the same situation can meet, date, and potentially find a lifetime partner.
I don't know exactly how long we corresponded before we spoke on phone, bit think it was several weeks, and then had 3 or 4 very lengthy calls before meeting. We met at a nice restaurant for Sunday brunch in early November and then had a series of dates and quiet evenings. At this time, we plan on being together for the rest of our lives, but we already knew we did not want to remarry.
That being said, you do have some great features, such as showing similar folks to someone that I viewed profile, and appear to have some good security features. I corresponded with what appeared to be some very nice men, and would recommend the site.
Hi PS Support,
Thanks for the supportive email .. it was a nice touch.
My partner and I met via your website in late December 2009 (he contacted me while he was overseas, but was moving back to Sydney in Feb 2010 - where I live). We corresponded for about 6 weeks before he came back to Sydney, and met the day after he arrived. We'd already set a lunch date for that day, so knew we were kind of working toward that. (What he didn't tell me while corresponding by email but did tell me as soon as we met, was that he was also corresponding with several other woman, mostly also from your website.)
We went on several platonic dates (as he did with most of the others he was corresponding with) and after about 3 weeks, we decided that we really liked each other, wanted the same thing (a committed, long-term relationship, preferably life-long) and that we were keen to give it a go in an exclusive relationship. He let his other "dates" know and we moved forward from there.
That was in late Feb 2010. In early Aug 2010 we moved in together and we have lived in the best relationship of our respective lives ever since! We just go from strength to strength,and the virus that we share but that has always been a burden in past relationships is nothing more than a humorous thing now, and even gives us both membership of the privileged club that helped bring us together. Yes, we plan to marry .. we already consider ourselves to effectively BE married in terms of our future outlook, plans and level of commitment to the relationship and each other. We are not in any rush to make it official, as there have been many new events in our lives to celebrate our being together and we like the idea of leaving that one until things are truly settled and maybe even a bit mundane, THEN we can celebrate all over again with an actual (low-key) wedding.
Thanks for your support and for the simple existence of your website.After using different dating websites, we both found your website (by its basic nature) to contain really down-to-earth, genuine people, looking for relationships for the right reasons. While my partner was the only person I actually met, I corresponded with one other who I would have met had things not turned out the way they did. However,my partner met at least 2 other women off your website who he said were both really lovely, wonderful ladies.
After nearly two years together now, we decided that it was time to not only "hide" our respective profiles, but to delete them altogether. Our plan is we'll never need them again!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too.
Our experiences together can't be put into words. As soon as we met we felt right at home. Our connection is intellectual, spiritual, emotional...it goes WAY beyond what we ever thought was possible. It can only get better from here; we bring out the best in each other and there's limitless possibilities as to what we can accomplish together. SO glad I gave this site one last chance
I thought my life, as far as relationships, was over until I found this site. My now Fiance' and I met using positivesingles.com. It is difficult when dating with an STD because the thought of revealing your STD to your partner is intimidating if not scary. positivesingles.com allowed us to find each other and we could not be happier. I'm in love and will never be the same. Thanks positivesingles.com
I talked with my now boyfriend for a couple of weeks before we met. We had our first date at the zoo and hit it off right away. Who knows he could be the one. We are very much in love. Thank you for bringing us together. :-)
