We corresponded for one week via email prior to meeting. We spoke on the phone the day before we met.
I had currently been corresponding with about 4 guys who seemed to be potential partners, but had not met any of them in person. However, the guy that I've chosen, stole my heart away with his honesty and sense of humor. We view the world the same and we 'get each other'.
We met the second week and we've been together every weekend since. I met him at the Santa Monica Pier in So Cal where he took me to see Cirque du Soleil. Afterwards we had drinks and the conversation that we shared lit a fire that I've never felt. We were comfortable with each other, which allowed us to open up and share.
We talk everyday and already it feels odd if I don't talk to him. The relationship is very new, but it feels right and that's what matters.
We have both expressed a strong interest in marriage and family. He's stated that "I'm the one" and that he wants to move forward with our relationship. Actually, he's asked me help him house hunt this weekend.
We corresponded for about one week before meeting...We are in the process of moving in together...I believe this one is for keeps!!
He had only been a member for one week, when we started talking...I had been away from your site for quite a while figured I give it one more chance...I have meet in the past but to be honest not to many quality people on here...So we were both fortunate to meet one another...
We emailed and talked for about a month before meeting. We had dinner on a friday, we spent saturday together and sunday we talked all day. we have talked everyday. We see each other 3 or 4 days a week. We plan on having a very long relationship! This relationship is the last for both of us we hope!Marriage..hmm who knows maybe if he asks!!!! Thanks for bringing us together !
We talked for a couple of weeks before meeting. Not really a very long time, but our e-mails were pretty detailed and we both shared a lot of information about ourselves, our families, who we are as people and what we were looking for. Can't say exactly what it was, but there was just this connection very early on so we decided to go ahead and meet. We met at a local Kansas City restaurant and ended up talking for a couple of hours and hit it off right away. Since that night we have continued seeing each other and talk pretty much daily. There is enough of a bond between us we both felt that pulling out of the dating site was the right thing to do. It's way too early to think about marriage but I will say that from what I have experienced with him so far, it wouldn't surprise me if some kind of committed relationship were in our future.
So thank you for providing this site - I can't tell you how devastated I was when I found out I had HSV-2. I thought my life was pretty much over and as I was researching information on the virus, I came across an ad for your site and decided to check it out. It was such a comfort to read the stories of so many other people out there with the same thing and knowing I'm really not alone - and now to have actually found someone I care about is really way more than I ever expected.
There are some wonderful people out there. This is different than other sites because there is a certain degree of honesty you must have in order to put yourself out there like that. I met a wonderful person who makes me laugh even though im going through some hard times. Everyone has issues and sometimes they are one in the same. Something led us to this site and not by chance we are here in our life for a reason. If it wasnt for an STD then I would have never found this wonderful soul. Im not ashamed at what I have and after this im thankful. Patience, persistence and
I met someone from this site. We talked for about 4 days before deciding to meet I believe. However, our phone conversations were always over an hour and we talked several time a day. I drove and picked him up and he took me to the ocean and we walked the boardwalk to the lighthouse and put our feet in the waves. It was so sweet. I don't know about marriage but I know that I am very glad he came into my life. We have similar backgrounds and the differences between us are coming together. He has me interested in new things. I don't feel hopeless anymore because of my "problem".
Our story is actually pretty crazy when we stop to think about it these days. We met on your website in March. We had both logged in to chat one night with no real hope of anything serious coming out of it. It was the
first time he had ever used the website. He lived in Southern California, and I lived in San Francisco. Coincidentally, he grew up in San Francisco and his family is still there, and that was what caught his attention and led to him initiating a conversation with me (That and my stunning beauty, of course).
Anyway, a couple days past without corresponding, and I decided to send him
a message. That was what really got the ball rolling, and from that point we quickly began to talk, text, chat and email several times a day. Since he was living in Southern California, we hadn't really discussed meeting; we were, at that point, just enjoying talking and realizing how similar we are to each other.
It was the end of March, and hockey playoffs were right around the corner. I had high hopes for my team, the San Jose Sharks, to make it to the finals. In a bold move, I bought two tickets to a round two playoff game. He jokingly said, "take me!" when I told him about the tickets, so I told him
if he flew up, I'd take him.
The game was about a month away at that point, and in the days preceding it, we spent hours on the phone every night. I was amazed that we never ran out of things to say. Conversation came really naturally for us. We did all those cheesy things like finish each other's sentences. There were nights that we literally talked for 5 or 6 hours.
So, the Sharks did not make it past round one, but as promised, he flew up to see me anyway. I remember picking him up at the airport, after a month of talking every day, and being so nervous. This whole experience was new to me, and I know Bryan was feeling the same way.
Within minutes of meeting he, it felt like we had been together for years.
Shortly after our first visit, I decided I was ready for a change in location. I decided I would move back to Los Angeles where I had lived a few years prior. I flew down to see he in Orange County, and he drove me
around to interview for jobs etc in LA. As luck would have it, I got a job in Orange County instead, and it was just minutes from his house. After several weekend trips and three months of talking, I decided I would move to Orange County and stay with him until I got settled. The two of us drove a u-haul across the state.
I never moved out of his house. We started talking about getting married
a couple months ago, and this was just another example of how we are similar. We shared a vision for a very non-traditional, simple marriage.
He and I both feel that we have met our other half. We are more excited about our lives than ever before, and we feel so lucky when we think back on the coincidental occurrences that brought us together despite the physical distance that was between us.
I found true love! Well We started chatting about 3 weeks ago or so when she sent a wink. I immediately emailed/winked back, I realized I didnt have my pic up so I immediately sent that to her...Both of our ads were very clear about what we wanted which was a lasting relationship leading to marriage and family....We talked on the phone (alot) met 1 week later, shes 90 min away in the Quad Cities, Im South of Peoria-I went back to her later that week and then I stayed the following weekend, and its been a whirlwind ever since....she is unbelievable and exactly what I was looking for! And yes I have found my true love....
I do have a success story. I logged on late one night after the ending of a "regular" relationship. I was scared to go to this type of site due to bad experiences before; however using a regular dating site has it downers when it comes
to the revealing of my 'issue'. Here it is already known so no pressure! I found a few interesting profiles and emailed them. I got two great responses by two great guys. The first to respond however was the one who was the one who was almost a perfect match! We have been dating for 6 weeks now and I haven't looked back. We are enjoying each other and happy we used Positive Singles to find one another! Thank you and keep this site going!
I seen his profile on August 20th and he seemed like a nice normal guy, so I sent him an email. He answered me a couple days later and we talked back and forth for a couple of weeks before we had an opening in our schedules to meet. We met at Il Fornello's for dinner and it was so comfortable that we stayed for hours. Then we went out for coffee until the the coffee house closed and kicked us out.
We continued to chat and email and had our second date on Sept. 5. A movie and dinner. We talked until midnight when I walked him home. We've talked everyday since and we have so much in common (besides our status). We were both looking for someone who would understand what our status meant (and didn't mean). I'm convinced that is going to be a great relationship, and that is why I've left the site.
Thanks for the great service.
I found someone and we are very happy. THANKS TO YOU!! Thank you for creating this website...Living with HIV is very difficult when it comes to dating. Thanks to your site I found love again.
He and I are still together and going strong! We are making our 1 year anniversary next month. We are very much in love and plan to get married. Thanks somuch!! Your website provides people with HIV so much!! It allows people to date, make friends and reach out to others in the same situation while keeping their privacy. I can't thank you enough!!!!!!!!!!
Found someone on this site. We talked for about a month then met in person. We met at a pub in vancouver for some casual drinks. There's no plans for marriage...yet anyway :) but i think he could be the one! this site has definatly made a huge improvement in my life, i don't know what i would have done without it.
Met someone! one year together! We sent one or two emails each before meeting (about a week). We met at a pub in vancouver. we hit it off right away and began a committed relationship from the first day. 6 months later we moved in together. I don't believe in marriage but we are committed as life partners (and very happy). Tips: be specific and direct in your profile, for example, I stated that I wanted a serious committed relationship with someone who also didn't want to have children.
I found a very special woman on this site and we are going to try to make it work for a very long time. I love her very much she is special to me and I thank you very much for making this site. Yes I am in love with her even though she doesn't realize it but soon she will thank you again. God bless you for being here for us and letting us meet each other
I met 2 of the most beautiful women that I never would have met otherwise. They are both very pretty, smart, have great jobs, awesome bodies and really are nice people. They both are good friends already. I have no idea right now where this may lead but time will tell, I suppose. I may return to this site in the future but I really doubt if I will need to.
We corresponded via email quite a while before we actually met. Maybe 3,4 weeks. It seems that they wanted to be able to tell if I was able to write intellectually and if I could put my thoughts into words. I guess I passed the audition. One meeting was a bike ride on a local bike path and that was a great first meeting. The other first meeting was in a mexican reataurant and she bought the drinks! Everybody's story is different, however this one has a happy ending!
I found my princess only days after she joined this site and now we're getting married, she is my soul mate and I'm hers.We want to thanks poisitve singles for giving us our 2nd chance.I FOUND MY REAL TRUE LOVE, MY PARTNER, MY FRIEND, MY SOUL MATE!
I met the man of my dreams just days after joining this site and we would like to take this opportunity to thank this site for allowing us the chance of a life time for which we have each met our soul mates and now planning our marrige.... thanks again....(peaches and yusuf)
We emailed for 2 weeks before meeting, we met for dinner, then went bowling, the night was going well so after bowling we went out for ice cream, then we went to a club to hear a band. The next day we hit golf balls, went to a bar to watch sports. The day after that we went to a baseball game. By the fourth day we both felt a strong connection and decided we were perfect for each other.
No immediate plans for marriage, but as the relationship progresses it is a safe assumption.
Thank you for creating the website, hopefully everything works out, but if not I will be back for sure.
I am in a relationship with a wonderful man I met on the site.The relationship I developed on the website have truly turned into a wonderful thing. I am so blessed to find such a wonderful person. We corresponded by email for a couple of weeks and then by phone for a couple of weeks. We finally met in person after a month. Our first date was dinner and a movie and the connection that we had on the phone was even more real in person. We have begun to spend quite of bit of time together and have done some traveling with a vacation planned for the winter. We both are very happy because a few years ago, I would not have thought such a relationship would have been possible and I had given up on one. I happened to read in an blog about someone meeting someone on this website and I decided to give it a try. After a few misses, I finally struck gold. I am not sure what the future holds for us, but I do know that I'm loving every minute of this new life. Thanks!!!
After nearly 2 years of chatting online we arranged to meet up and since then we've been inseparable and have never looked back! Now we're engaged and wedding planning! Thank you PositiveSingles! xxxxx
