I had joined the site due to being infected with herpes in 2005 and not wanting to have to go through the horror of infecting someone that didn't have the virus. I had not been informed prior to being intimate with a man I was dating and would feel it irresponsible to not inform a potential partner. Being on PosSing allows that one barrier to be removed. I joined the site for dating purposes though came to enjoy the blogs and interaction that provided support and encouragement.
I saw Mac*** on August 1, 2006. I sent him a wink. He was in Iraq at the time, serving in the Army and did not respond until August 8, 2006. We came to be consistent 'pen pals' and instant messaging through AIM sharing things with each other that hadn't been shared before and we developed a close friendship. I feel sure that having that space apart allowed us to be open and reveal more. I learned more about myself and had so much awareness and positive change in how I looked at life. It was just a good, supportive, and open friendship. Pat, his real name and I kept in consistent contact and soon expressed a deeper fondness for each other. I felt very blessed and thankful to have been introduced to him through the PosSing site. I came across a warm, genuine, Christian, man of integrity.
We began talking of meeting and if our future would cross paths. We decided it would be better to remain 'just friends' due to stress and transitional time Pat needed to get back into daily living here in the States. Pat is a great soldier and deserves recognition for his service time.
Pat came home in May 2007 and then was stationed in Atlanta, Ga for one year in a Reserve Unit. We made time to meet in person (I was in Jacksonville, FL) before he had to report. We realized that our letters through email did reveal a real person that was reflected genuinely and honestly. That time of meeting opened up a new depth of friendship and we decided to begin a relationship a few months later. While Pat was in Atlanta, GA we would travel the short five to six hours(depending on who was driving) to spend time with each other. Our families heard so much talk about the 'other' we made time in March of this year for them to meet the 'other'. We knew we were headed towards a life together and decided to be married this August 2008 in Florida. Pat is almost out of the Army and working a civilian job.
I believe that the emails through Pos Sing and instant messaging allowed us to be able to get to know each other that dating in person can hurry. Pat treated me respectfully and was never vulgar or rude which was a great indicator of integrity, respect, and genuineness of wanting to know me as a person...the relationship and love is a cherished bonus.
This is a continuation of our first "Success Story" posting....My Honey and I got married the first part of June '08, a little over one year after meeting on this site. Keep your head up and never accept less than what you really want. Respect yourself, protect yourself....
Thank you for your site, I have found my true love and i am ready to start my life with her. I never thought I would find my true love after the gift was given to me but thanks to your site. You have shown me that it can be done.
Thank you again!!!
I believe I have found someone special that wants more out of life and a relationship. we have chatted online and also on the phone and the first encounter was unbelievable and we have a lot in common. So I'm ending my search and going to focus on what I have in front of me, a real gentleman.
I have found the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. I found her on this web site. I can't thank you enough! At first I wasn't sure about putting my profile on here. I live in a small community. I did and I found everything I've ever wanted in a companion. Your web site is truly the best thing for so many people. Keep on doing what your doing!! Thanks again! As read above I'm impressed with your web site.
Yes, I have been lucky to find a wonderful man on your site. When I first found out I had "The gift," I didn't think I'd ever meet anyone. I actually thought my life was over. Well, I met someone who is truly wonderful thanks to your site. We are in tune in every way. Thank you Postive Singles! you all don't need to do anything. thanks for this site!
Yes I did find someone on your site, I hung in for the last year always believing my perfect match was out there. Met some nice people along the way and wish all them the best. My advice is to stay upbeat and positive(no pun intended) enjoy life. Good things do happen! It is fine just the way it is,thank you for giving me an outlet to have the courage to rediscover the real me, i truly feel liberated and educated. thank you michael
I met somebody on here and coincidentally. While I've been hesitant with doing the online dating thing, I cannot ask for a better match. He, unlike many who have contacted me, seems honest, genuine, and an all around good guy. I feel very lucky that I have found someo who is like me in a lot of ways. I'm ceasing my search with the hopes that this works out for the both of us. Thanks.
He said "WOW" and I said "if half what his profile says is true, this might go somewhere" and somewhere it did. He saw me on April 15th,emailed me in the wee hours of April 16th - I responded immediatley and we talked for hours and hours every night and as much as we could every day till our first date April 20th. We are together forever now and we both found the other person who makes us feel whole. Is Herpes a curse - hell no - it is the gift that keeps on giving and in this case it gave each of us each other - the perfect spouse / friend / lover!!! We will be married on July 17th, 2009 or sooner if he has his way. Thanks +singles you made our dreams come true in each other, every day and every night for the rest of our lives till death do we part.
I have been on these websites for 5 years have been in 3 relationships from them and never quite found someone i honestly in my heart knew was "the one". I thought this thing called true love was some kind of a sick joke. After 2 months on your site i have found the man i believe in my heart is "the one". Our first phone conversation lasted for hours and our first meeting neither one of us wanted to leave. I have found someone I honestly want to spend my life with because I love them not because I should just be with them b/c we share this one thing in common. Kudos to positivesingles!
I met my boo here on the site in early October.We e-mail each other for two weeks.He lived in VA and I live in MD. He was in the military and was base at Fort Meade before so we decided to meet there.It wasn't love at first but the more we spend more time together we fell in love!We have move our relationship futher by living together now.We are planning to marry and we are moving to the south to start our new life's together in June.Thanks to a web site that allows U to meet people just like U to find your other half !
Met a wonderful girl who like me is HIV+. We are now dating very seriously. We both never thought we would find some one being HIV+. Your service has changed our lives and we thank you very much!! Thank heavens for the Internet and www. positivesingles. com! You are doing a great job. Keep it up and help others too to find a loving partner!
So I've been all over this country pretty much since coming to this site back in '02..Vegas, Ohio, NY, Boston, NJ, SC,met a guy from MN and a few crazies in between. I never thought the day would come, that I would write on here to say that I actually met a normal and awesome man who cares for me, just the way I that I always knew I should be. Everything is still fresh and new, and we couldn't be happier getting to know each other and exploring this world together. So please know, that I am not interested in chatting with any other man on this site at the present time, because I have found everything I have been searching for in a small town in VA...who would have thought:)Good Luck to everyone on this site. It's by far the best, and there are others out there, but most of the men I met online were from this site. Don't give up or give and just be yourself and take your time. If it smells odd and you don't feel it, it's OK to tell someone it isn't going to work. That doesn't mean you won't get your heart broken on here either..I know I sure did. Always be willing to go the distance, and one piece of advise guys..put the option out there that YOU will actually visit the girl first, not the other way around..it really says a lot! Hopefully someday, I can delete this profile all together! Good Luck to Everyone!!!
i recently dated a player and the experience left me numbed after reading all the positive stories, i have renewed expectations. especially the one who got her Mr right after similar experiences like mine. thank you all for sharing. Even if it has not yet happened to me, i feel tremendous joy when people et to find each other.
I have found the love that I never thought I would. I found her on this site and we connected in a way that I cannot even explain. If there were a perfect woman she would be as close as I can imagine. I only hope that everyone else here has the same thing happen to them, because there is no greater joy than the one I feel right now.
I met the love I thought I never would on this site. We connected in a way that I didn't think was possible and I cannot explain. If there were a perfect woman for me she would be as close as I can imagine. She makes my heart stop when I see her and my mind is buzzing just thinking of her. There is no greater feeling than this and I hope that everyone on this site can find what I have. Thank you all for the help and support you have given me.
I met someone after being on the site for a few days back in July of 2007. We finally met face to face in September 2007 and I couldn't be happier. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me.... and after years of thinking it would never happen! Thanks Positive Singles!
This site and especially the largest STD blog had became my point of rescue. I go into the blogs and laugh, cry, and I even can get agglutinate in there. The blog room has become like an extended family. I will miss everyone in the blog room.
As far as criticism, I cannot. To praise this site all I can say is thank you very much for allowing me the opportunity to meet people who have the same type of STD that I do. I have also come to realize on this site that I can control my STD, it does not control me.
You guys have an AWESOME site, I have met someone through you guys, well I haven't
met him officially yet(connected is better word right now I guess), but I am HOPEFUL.
However I want to focus just on him for now, anything else is a distraction...now all of a sudden, I am getting lots of "hit"...... You guys have an awesome site, DON'T change ANYTHING...thanks again..
Here's our story. My profile stated that I was a smoker. santos2007 is a non-smoker. He chose to write to me based on the profile that I had written. Several things in there appealed to his sense of humor. He winked. I almost did not wink back because he was a non-smoker! But, I decided that I would write him, instead, and point out that I was a smoker who was trying to quit. He told me that, as he first wrote to me, it was his problem to deal with my smoking. We emailed several times and then exchanged phone numbers. Very soon thereafter, we met for our first date. For me, it was wonderful! Here was a man who was exactly what his profile said he was. And he was so much more. It has been almost one month since that first date and we have spent as much time together as possible. We are dating only each other and we both have really high hopes as to where our relationship is headed. I am so very grateful that he chose to ignore the fact that I was a smoker and winked at me. This is, without a doubt, the greatest relationship that I have been in and I owe it all to positivesingles.com. I never really thought that I would meet someone so compatible to me on the internet. Boy, was I wrong!! My advice? If the profile appeals to you, take the chance. You may just find the love of your life!!
