It turned out that I am positive for Herpes SImple, where I was told before that it was Herpes Genitalus. With this definitive outcome and knowledge I started dating again and found someone.
It will be very helpful when posts in PS from members won't show up in Google etc. I was one time very unpleasant surprised that a dtae found out about my posts just by googling my email address.
I found someone that I am happy with and I have no need for the website. Also, I changed my email that differs to I gave on here to a more buisness one and i'm still getting messages when checking my new email..
I wish everyone luck with there seearch and hope they find what I found. You guys were perfect and very helpful.
My future husband, Joe, and I have the best kept secret: incredible, undeniable true, real and passionate love. We met in simple fashion.
Joe wrote to me, telling me sweet things. I considered his entire profile with scrutinizing effort before writing him back, because we were not listed as most compatible matches. I found that we saw the world through the same lens and that he could describe a feeling with an old poem. He had a face like an angel, and though it was hard to see them, he said he had green eyes (which thrilled me, not knowing why).
I wrote him back with a simple few words, not sure how to get the ball rolling. Oh, but did it roll. We emailed, then talked, then moved on to texting and phone calling. He seemed like all the world in one person for which I could ever hope, but was he real?
We met in late Spring, and we have been inseparable ever since. He is my knight in shining armor, and I am somehow this beautiful princess to him. I wonder at his admiration, and he says he counts himself truly lucky.
I myself know quite well my good fortune, as love does not simply fall in your path. I have waited all my life to feel this way and feel loved this way.
We live in Greenville, SC, together now, and we wed in December 2012. We live to give the rest of our lives the fulfillment of our dreams.
We found true love. It's there, and you will find it too. We thank positivesingles.com for helping us to find each other.
I meet the man of my dreams on here! He is the sweetest, kindest, most humble man. We connected right away and our 30 minute lunch date turned into five hours of non stop talking. I am so thankful for this site!
Met a wonderful guy and someone perfect for me. Held out for several months for the right person. We have much in common and are at the same points in our lives also looking for the same in a partner. I am excited and ready! Good luck everyone!
I met a wonderful woman on this site. We have been seeing each other seriously for a few months but spent about 6 months talking and hanging out. Honesty from the get go has been a solid foundation for our relationship. We both have had similar experiences of dealing with "difficult" people. We love camping and spending time outdoors and have been away 4 times to different campgrounds. People need to keep an open mind and heart and know what is really important in a relationship and what is important to them. We love each other deeply and she is moving in with her little girl in the next couple of months. We are pregnant and absolutely stoked. We both see the path for our happiness together and are walking it holding hands. Thanks again PS.
We corresponded for a day and half before I asked her if she would like to meetup. It was a last minute decision (normally I wait 3 days or more before asking to meet, but things felt right).
We actually met at my place after making sure she was comfortable with that. We continued to talk and get to know one another (a few kisses were involved but that's ALL). Not only are we attracted to each other on a physical level, but we share common interests. I could see us having a lasting relationship for sure.
In terms of marriage plans since we barely just met it’s hard to give a definite yes. But as I was sharing an interest of mine with her she did make a comment "Marry me". Even though she said it playfully it was nice to hear her say that. So I would so it's a great possibility, we mesh very well and are both open and honest. (I'm not getting any younger either).
I've been on the site for some time now. Typically my dates consist of a correspondence of at least 3 to 4 days before asking to meet. Our date was totally unorthodox in terms of the speed at what which we met, and also where we ended up meeting in person (my place!?). I don't know what to make of that. Guess she's the one for me. I feel lucky and thankful you helped me meet her.
I met a girl on your site so I guess that counts as a success even if neither of us feels very serious about each other. It’s nice having tangible support from other people who are going through the same things.
I started communicating with someone from your site on April 22nd, primarily because his screen name/id indicated common interests and we were attracted to each other. Our situation & outlook on life - where we are each at in life, is perfect for each other. We met & continued to hit it off & are very content together and we are looking forward to a long and happy union (relationship; lol) even though he lives in Canada & I live in the U.S....it works!
Thank You! =D
Thanks to a very good friend of mine, he told me to get back online & try again. It took me approx 3 weeks & now I'm moving cross country to be with my beautiful soulmate :)
I will never regret getting herpes & wish everyone the very best in their search for true love &happiness.
I met the love of my and we are suedo compatible spirtually, mentally, emotional and physically. We are planning to to married real real real soon. She is the sweetest ANGEL in the world. She make me feel that i am greatest man in world. We wish all of you best in finding you soul mate and life partner.God Bless You All
I met a man outside of the club. We hit it off. After about a month or so, I decided to lay it all out for him in a letter. It was one page, typed. I told him that I have herpes. I briefly described to him the consequenses of having sexual relations with me and contracting it. I also gave him resources so he could research it himself. I expressed to him that I was completely understanding about what choice he would make. I also expressed to him my personal experience with herpes and how it really hasn't affected my life outside of dating.
Well, he chose me. He said I was worth it. We are madly in love now and plan to marry and live happily ever after. Actually, he is the man of my dreams.. and I'm 31 years old, been around the block, didn't think he was out there.
Moral of the story: be honest in the right way, and at the right time. Be mature about it, present the facts, present your feelings, present the information, and be ready for rejection. You never know, you might just find the man of your dreams.
Thank you for bring it me back the hope, i am happier than ever.... I meet an incredible man in this site, we star emailing and texting, then we finaly meet and now we are making plans for pur future.... things happen for a reasoon we may never undertand but sold never stop looking for our happy ending...
I added him to my favorites, basically putting the ball in his court the last weekend in September of 2012. Him being curious, he sent an email. We exchanged numbers very quickly. We talked and texted, morning, noon, and night that whole week. Our first date was that following weekend in October 2010, dinner and a movie. He introduced me to sushi, he brings a lot out me and I love him for that. He proposed April 2, 2011. The wedding is set for September 22, 2012.
I am currently happy to have found someone from this site. We emailed for about a week before meeting, he sent me a photo as he didn't have one on his profile. I had expressed that a ferry ride would be too far away, but it was a ferry that was closer to me now, and also near to where I grew up.
He is friends with my cousin, which made him not a total unknown. He seems to like the same things I do, which is very important. He came to my home for our first meeting, which I understand is not to be done normally, but he seemed safe with his knowing my cousing, I thought it was OK. He is very normal, kind, and sweet. Not a topic at this early stage, but we did talk about how long he would have to be long distance due to his commitments at home. I think 2.5 years before he can be with me full time is OK as it gives us lots of weekends and holidays together to determine if it will be right for more commitment. I feel happy that I found someone like him, even without our std I would have looked for someone like him.I think your site is well done, and I was so impressed to find one like it as I had been devastated and thought life was over because I would never have told anyone I had an std as I live in a small town and everyone would know. Thankyou so much for having this site available to me, and I hope I won't need it again.
I joined PS with low expectations in terms of love and romance; NZ has a small population spread out over a huge area, and it would be unlikely to find more than companionship. I live in a very remote area - where EVERYbody knows everybody, no casual dating here! - and sure enough there were few on PS of age/region/personal compatibility. Actually, only one....................
So we corresponded for a while, but my marital situation was not finalised, so I pulled out. But then felt more final so reconnected briefly - and then, in confusion, said a final farewell to what was clearly a very good and decent PS lady. Hey, welcome to the Real Modern World of confused relationships...................
Eventually I pulled myself together and set Jan 1st 2012 as the First Day of my new life alone. I was honest to my ex that I would then move on - I may have Messaged, but I never Met, while the marital relationship was working its way out.
So, as a single guy, I rejoined PS and just sort of checked, had a sneaky peak: YEP, she was still there! So I said straightforwardly that I had been where I was, but was now single, we had done enough messages - did she want to meet? Sure \I knew she was a kind person; but after all my confusion (in which I had at least been honest), I was amazed that she agreed immediately.
We met in a park. Her hometown is 4 hrs from me (heck, I live 3 hours from a roundabout or traffic light!), so I parked my motorhome. It was a gloriously sunny day, I was early, took the dogs for a stroll. I was pleased to meet & chat to someone from PS, but had no nerves or excitement, as I had no expectations - I had been attracted by her kind words more than by her picture. So when a car pulled up next to my motorhome and an elegant slim blonde stepped out, I thought "Damn, I wish the girl I was meeting looked like that!!"
Then she called my name. Wow! OMG! Sunlight glinting through her blonde hair, red summer dress, warm welcoming smile.......
Well, you think we two, both over 50, should be smart enough to know better, and to take our time sensibly. Sorry to disappoint you folks, but We Knew. We knew within hours, if not minutes (she says that she knew instantly). Since then, only two months ago, she has downsized her job to spend more time with me (I am a pretty free agent), so living apart is an asset not a hindrance - I spend 4 nights a fortnight in the big city with her (theatres & live music) , she spends four nights a fortnight in my country home (horses & motorbikes).
So we have three nights a week apart, but talk, text and email all day; and can see our friends and do our own thing - she goes to Meditation and I go hunting hahahahaha! I never said we were exactly alike! But we get on like a house on fire, love each other to bits, will be living fultime in the country within two years and.......what was that? marriage? I have learnt my lesson: in Life, you never know; for sure I have an open mind.
So thanks, PS, two lonely people with fractured lives - are now living a wonderful, full, happy life together.
He is the most amazing man I have ever met!! We met over 18 months ago on this site but lost all but an occasional brief contact with each other. We, what I thought then, accidentally hooked up again in January of this year. We believe with all of our hearts, that "accident" was no accident at all. God answered our prayers. We both had been praying for mates, and both feel God has honored our desires !
Soon my new adventure will begin. I will be joining him in Kentucky to begin our new life together.
