We corresponded for a full month via email just to get to know each other really well first. First emailing through the site, then through our own email addresses and then phone conversations. Were attracted to each other because of "who" we were before ever meeting. When we finally met in person, we knew that we'd be great friends, we were just waiting to see if there was a physical connection too.
Met mid-week for a simple drink, less that two hour visit. Immediate physical connection. (we both used accurate photos of ourselves) Then went out that weekend and then been all set ever since. We both knew immediately after meeting that we didn't need to meet more people.
Neither one of us are looking for marriage, just long term commitment. We've both been married before so we have no plans for marriage. And, its still early on in the relationship, but we see no need to keep profile active.
My story is unique in that I met somebody off of this site who accepts and loves me for who I am, regardless of my condition. I was in an abusive marriage for 6 years which is when I was diagnosed with HSV and finally had the courage to leave him, so I am now divorced. A little less than a year ago, I was working in an area which was not my home but met a wonderful guy during the 9 months I was there. On our 1st date, we connected right away and have so much in common . Up to this day, our relationship is even stronger and we are starting to plan our future. Even though he is HSV negative, I told him of my condition on our 1st date, because I felt comfortable in doing so. This did not scare him away, but he researched the condition thoroughly and talked to a doctor so we can take all precautions. HSV is not even a topic in our conversation like it doesn't even exist and we are so happy together and living and enjoying life each day. We do live 3.5 hours apart but we see each other every other weekend and we will eventually move in together in the future.
Happinesss emailed me on 4/17/13. She took the time to address all the subject matter in my email. Although her email was concise, it was direct & to the point. After emailing for a day, we talked the next day & her openness was refreshing, and needed. The "walls" of defense were down. We did video chat a few times & immediately fell in love. After finishing my job in Hawaii, I took a 4 days vacation and travelled to her city to visit her. We've been together everyday.
I met my husband on this site almost two years ago. We got married New Year's Eve of last year. Our story seems too good to be true. PS is proof that things sometimes have a great way for working themselves out. I would have never had the medium to meet him otherwise.
I would be glad to share our story! We met through PS about 4 months ago. We have been together ever since. We text when we aren't with each other and are in love. We kept in touch on the computer for four weeks before physically speaking. We also spoke on the phone for probably a good month and a half before meeting. Since then it has been remarkable. No plans for marriage just yet, there have been rumors of cohabitation however and I am meeting his daughter this summer. So thank you so much for all that you and PS have done for us!
He and I began corresponding in October of 2010 in spite of not being in the same demographic area. It was an instant connection! We corresponded for two months and had our first date at a museum that was half way between our two states and them had a lovely dinner.
Although it is a two hour drive to see one another, and have been doing a long distance relationship, we have been inseparable from that first date. We are hoping to marry within this next year and my son and I will relocate to Illinois.
I believe your site has great potential to connect like minded people providing each person is honest and considerate.
Thanks, Positive Singles, for helping me find the man I waited a long time to find!
I got married after meeting my wife on this site. Thanks so much for everything you do! This site helped turn my life around!
My wife and I corresponded over the site only a few times...maybe 5-6 times before meeting in person. Ordinarily I would have corresponded longer before meeting. However, it was easy to meet up since we both lived in the same town. We went out to dinner at a local restaurant to start and really hit it off. I proposed one year later and we just got married in October thanks to your site.
One reason a lot of people leave websites do so because of a limited client base. PS definitely has the most active participation among all the sites I've used and I know your team is always trying to find ways to grow its customers. Keep up the great work and thank you so much for everything you do for us!
I have met someone on this website and I have no Interest in chatting with anyone else.
We corresponded for about 1 1/2 or 2 weeks before we finally met. I met picked her up at her house for our first date which consisted of going to a restaurant and then renting some movies and going back to her house to watch them. We hit it off soooo well and there is so much chemistry between us. And no, there's no plans for marriage as we've only known each other a few weeks.
Thank you very much!
Found my match through PS. THANK YOU
We chatted on line for exactly one week before we exchanged numbers. The first conversation lasted for 6 hours, (no joke). We were 104 miles apart but he came down the following weekend and it has been glorious ever since. It is just so amazing. No signs of marriage but the subject has come up.
I met my match...thanks so much for the help!
I tried the site more as a check to see who was out there, my ex wife had given me my gift and I felt that I would never find anyone…so I stayed in the marriage even though she cheated on me more times then I could count. Eventually I gave up (I didn’t have a picture up or anything, just a few words about how I felt….”I like to meet someone and not have “the gift” be the topic of conversation or have to worry about brining it up)…that was 2005…
I went to the web site in 2010, when I finally got divorced from my cheating wife and updated my location. The account was never paid for and it wasn’t until November of 2012 that I got an e-mail alert. I needed to pay to see the e-mail which is not a bad thing considering the result wasn’t just a woman on the other side of the planet; it was someone in my new home city. We e-mailed a few times both explaining why we didn’t have pictures up, we then texted pictures back and forth and decided to meet after about 3 weeks. We liked each other right off over lunch, then over the holidays we only talked and texted. After the New Year we went to dinner a few times and started hanging out all the time.
We went to away for a weekend together a few times and are now inseparable. Both of us are good earners and we are very compatible in what seems like every way…she has basically been living at my house and we are officially moving in together next month. Six months, yes everyone says it’s fast but we figure its right and I think we’d get married today if our families wouldn’t think we are crazy. We knew we were meant for each other when we started looking at our mutual “Gift” as a blessing…it brought us together, something that most likely would have never happened had we not been in the same boat. She said “I use to think it was the worst thing that ever happened in my life…now I think of it as the best because it brought us together.”
I met my match! I no longer need the site.
We corresponded for about 5 days before meeting in person. We both enjoy sushi, so we went to a great restaurant for sushi and sake. We drove separately to the restaurant. After dinner, we were enjoying each others company, so we decided to continue the date and went to a comedy club- had a great time!
Waaayyyy to early to think about marriage! I can't think of any tips, as I was happy w my brief time on the site. It's great that there is a site like yours, thank you!
To whom it may concern:
I met someone on this website, it is a good service.
My success story is still limited because we have only been seeing each other for a short period if time but I see a lot of potential. We corresponded a couple times through PS and for almost 6 months via Facebook/text. We finally met and hit it off better than I could of imagined. I deleted my profile because I expect this to last. Contact me back in 6 months and I will let you know how it has progressed.
Found someone, Thank you very much!! Really, what made it happen was persistence and learning to talk via email rather than face to face and text, which is quite different. Thanks for everything again.
i have met a wonderful guy! although were about 500 miles away we have found
qualities in each other that we love so much that we are willing to make it work. we
are both college students who have similar interests, similiar musical taste and
being diagnosed with the same thing. we have been talking for a few weeks and hav
decided we both no longer need our profiles since finding each other. i was starting
to give up on love until coming across him (which was totally by accident) thanks so
much for a great social network for those who have unforunate events happen to them.
well be writing our success story for our website after a few months! thanks again
I truly found a 100% real loving and caring woman. We share sooooo many similarities it is almost unreal! We are perfect match for each other in ways I never dreamed possible. We laugh, we cry, we live!!! We are both emo, lol!!!
We conversated via phone from the very beginning since my membership ended 2 days after he contacted me. I had not had much luck on the site.
We talked for about 2 weeks and meet 1/2 way between where we both live. The next week a friend and I traveled to his city and stayed the weekend. He the traveled back and stayed the week in my city.
We have talked every day since for the past 7mths and will be married this year in June.
We emailed for only about a week before we met. We seemed to have a lot in common and he was really sweet. He lives in Denver and I had to go pick up a friend in DIA so I suggested meeting before my friend flew in. Turns out, he had to work that day, which was sat but he said he was willing to get up and meet at 6 just so we could meet. Our first date was magic and I felt butterflies that hadn't been around since I was a teenager. He was just so adorable. He said he knew when he kissed me that he never wanted to kiss anyone else. Ever since then, we hung out almost every weekend, with one of us driving the four hour commute. We haven't spoken of marriage yet but I just was getting through my divorce when we met so I'm willing to wait for a few years before making that leap. All I know is that he completes me and I would never have met him were it not for this site. He feels the same way. He's everything I've ever wanted in a man and I can't believe how lucky I am to have found him . thanks again for your wonderful site.
It is best when everyone is honest, for meI often need to
sit with the person to see if we feel anything. And if they don'd dont look at it
as rejection if it wont work for him/her how could it work for you? best of luck
We met on the day I planned to unsubscribe from the site. He had been a member about the same amount of time as me, but hadn't posted a pic( I don't talk to little gray boxes...lol). We have been talking everyday since then, and will be going on vacation together this July in Atlanta, GA. He's absolutely MY perfect!
