We corresponded for a few weeks regularly, a couple of months sporadically. He lives in North Carolina, I live in Texas. I went there to meet him because we were spending hours on the phone and it was taking up a lot of our time and we felt like we had a lot in common and we were very attracted to each other. We met and spent four days together and decided to be exclusive and dive into the adventure of a long distant relationship. We will see how it goes. Thanks very much for your site and good service. Thanks PS!!
We chatted back a couple times. We both decided to meet at a local steak house in person...great date and awesome to start thing off honest with no worries of STD's. Marriage....well I'll have to wait and see about that but so far so good.
I think I found my match and we are happy together and it's a good thing to stop !! Not to chat with so many woman .. and thank you guys for the site and the help.Well thank you guys for your great serves.
From first contact until actual meeting was about a year but there was just a little contact initially and then we picked it up. I would say there was only about a week from "hello again" to "how about meeting for a glass of wine?" We did talk on the phone...I think, prior to meeting but maybe not. At any rate, it was a Friday night, we met at Bonefish Grill for the glass and ended up enjoying each other's company enough to have that stretch out to dinner at the bar. No plans for marriage; it's been only 4 months since we first met in person and for folks my age, that's just getting warmed up. But we are a couple and have a wonderful relationship and share many, many dimensions of compatibility. Unfortunately for you as soon as I established that this one is a keeper, after only a couple weeks I committed to her and myself that I wouldn't go on the site and subject myself to that temptation. And that's the thing really, I'm a one gal guy.So there you have it. I hope it helps someone else like me. It's a wonderful world with the right partner and I believe the right one's out there for each of us. Our job is to live the most authentic life possible, find our joy and then remain open to her. With a little bit of luck she'll find us. :-)
All the best,
Hi, well me and my boyfriend started talking through the site and emailed about a week then texted each other and prob the second week we met. He came to my town, two hrs from him to see me in a café and went back home the same night. We have a lot in common and appreciates me for all I have. We both love the simple things in life. We plan on moving in together in like 6-8 months. For now on the weekends we drive to see each other. Everything happens for a reason and I'm very grateful to have found him on this site. We have been dating for about two months and I'm happier than I've been in awhile. Thank you!
My partner and I made contact on Dec 12/12. I had viewed his profile about a month before in passing and he decided to contact me in December after seeing my profile pop up as having viewed him earlier. We emailed back and forth twice over the course of two days and hit it off very quickly. We immediately began texting and calling and within 4 days of having first made contact I had booked a flight out to visit for 4 days over New Year's. I am from Winnipeg and he lives in Calgary. We met in person on Dec 30/12 and fell in love almost immediately. I'm currently fulfilling licensing requirements within my profession to be able to transfer and practice in Alberta. I'm planning to move in with him by the end of March and we've already been talking very openly about marriage and a future together.
I met a wonderful man and am starting a lifelong commitment with him. Will be relocating to Florida after loose ends are tied up with my ex partner. I couldn't be happier to have found someone with the same morals and ethics as I have. He's the soul mate I wanted all my life.
I have been luck enough to find love in my life and now wish to remove myself from this site as it feels like a stage of moving on - I am now married and due to have my first child any day now : ) Its a great service - a chance to know you are not on your own.
In the 3 years since I've lost my wife of 25 years to breast cancer, I've been on many different dating sites searching for another long term partner. At times, as many as six at once. The last site I tried was PositiveSingles in October of 2012. I joined on Oct 28th. I never knew this site existed until that October and it was only by chance that I saw an Ad for it on the internet somewhere and decided to see what it was all about. I was mainly interested in the resource information on the latest treatments and the stories on how other people were coping and living with the disease.
I had been positive for type 2 herpes for more than 35 years and never really gave it any thought lately until I saw this Ad. I don't have outbreaks like I did in the beginning so it has been kind of dormant and I never let it rule my life. In my 25 years of marriage, I never passed the disease to my wife so I got into the habit of just learning to live with it, forget about it, and live on.
From across all of my sites, I had looked at and read many female profiles and corresponded with many women with some turning into dates who lived as far as 1800 miles away from me. None of the dates were bad, but all wound up being disappointing in some form or fashion in the end.
One particular night (Nov 6) while feeling pretty down after coming off another disappointing date, I started cruising female profiles on PositiveSingles. I was pretty much just quickly surfing photos and moving on to the next because that is all I was interested in doing that evening. Wasn't in the mood of getting bogged down with a bunch of in depth profile reading that night. I came across one particular photo within 45 miles of my location that I thought was strikingly beautiful to me and deserving of a compliment. So I made the comment "lovely... I can definitely see the classiness in you" and just moved on, never expecting her to reply figuring that a woman, according to her profile tag line is looking for a "classy gentleman" and gives the appearance that she is well versed and enjoys the finer things out of life, would never be interested in a Alaskan man whose life is all about living and traveling in an RV, being in the wooded outdoors, and shows no "touch of class" in his profile. Also, I had made comments on other female profile photos over the years that I thought were beautiful and they never replied. So why should this one be any different I thought.
But to my surprise, she did reply with a thank you for the compliment message and then made the comment that she thought "we may be kindred spirits, would you like to find out"? Oh well now...this is a pleasant surprise and this game is now in play I thought. LOL It is now the next day, Nov 7th.
Thinking of ways as to how I was going to reply to this unexpected & surprised message, I decided I was going to quickly check her humor. That was important to me in a relationship. My reasoning was, if we can laugh together, then it's a good possibility that we could stay together.
I noticed from her profile that we were very close in age and she had been positive for more than 20 years like myself. My positive gift came from my military days back in the seventy's and there were a lot of faceless chicks back then that you took to a hotel room after a fun time in a nightclub so I asked her if she was one of those faceless chicks and the one that gave me the gift that keeps on giving. If she was, I had a few choice words for her now after all of these years. She replied with a humorous response and that broke the initial communication barrier for us. From that one exchange, we found out that we could easily talk to, joke with, and laugh with one another and we haven't stopped since.
We exchanged several more emails and quickly determine how compatible we were in so many areas. It was actually a little scary as to how compatible we really were. For me, it was like hitting the lottery after so many failed attempts at establishing a new relationship and then all of a sudden, you hit the big one.
We never really talked about being positive after that one exchange. Being positive just allowed us to be in the same moment & time and with the same mental attitude that enabled our relationship to quickly click.
After many encouraging email exchanges over the next few days, on Friday, Nov. 9th, a two-hour phone conversation confirmed our initial compatibility and I asked her out for a date on the following Thursday, the 15th. We saw each other for the 1st time via Skype Video Chat two days later, and physically met for the first time the very next day, Nov 12th, for a lunch and movie date. (It turned out neither of us wanted to wait any longer for that first encounter.) On that first date, we experienced a very strong attraction for one another and knew something very special was happening to us. I can't even remember what the movie was all about. It may have something to do with the fact that we were two seniors acting like 2 hot teenagers in the back of the movie theater all over again! LOL
Nine days later from 1st contact, on Nov 15th, I took her to the "Cirque du Soleil: Dralion" event here in San Diego. We had up close and personal 2nd row, stage floor seats. It was a wonderful show and beautiful evening for us. We were inseparable for the next three days.
Twelve days later from 1st contact, on Nov 18th, I took her to a beach community nook here called "La Jolla Cove". It has picturesque cliffs and offers some stunning views of the Pacific Ocean in an intimate setting. We viewed many types of sea birds and seals in their natural wild habitat. The picture accompanying this message of us was snapped here that day.
Twenty two days later from 1st contact, on Nov 28, in the "romantic" parking lot of a TGI Friday's Restaurant, I asked her informally if she would marry me and she said "Yes", and thirty one days later from 1st contact, on Dec 8th, we were living together. We both moved out of out separate apartments and got a place of our own.
There's a line from "When Harry Met Sally" that fits our situation. "When you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to start..as soon as possible." And that's how we felt about being together.
At 59 years old, this will be Lisa's 1st marriage so at some unknown date, time, and location down the road, I'm going to have to convert that informal "romantic" parking lot marriage proposal into a formal one... complete with the big rock engagement ring and public event announcement. I don't believe she will allow me to skate by with anything less! LOL
I was lucky enough to find the love of my life, Vivian. Before I met Vivian I was getting ready to give up. There were maybe 20 - 30 people in West Virginia that had hpv alone and that was it. I've seen a couple different sources that there are 20 million people in the world with hpv, but apparently they don’t know about the web sites or know that they are infected. I'm very thankful I was a member of this site, because without it, I wouldn't have found the love of my life. I don’t need any features that you don’t have anymore, I found the love of my life, and I would like to thank you again for that...
I have found some wonderful friends that I hope turn into something more in the near future. I do not want to get confused or add anymore people, so I'm sticking with the wonderful ones I have met. This site has been wonderful and I've found great support. Keep up the GREAT work!
Thank you.... We emailed and talked on the phone for many many weeks before we finally decided to meet in person... We met (he came to my Town, he lives an hour away) and we went out to lunch... It was awesome... we talked and laughed and it was so nice to actually SEE him in person, versus talking on the phone.... We had gotten together many times since then, and have taken things to the next level by deciding to become exclusive.... He is such a gentleman and my heart is happier then it has ever been!
We have had several weekend adventures and have even talked about me moving in with him.... Life is very good!!! Are there plans of marriage.... Who knows??? The sky is the limit!!!
I met someone on the site. We chatted for a week or two, then we talked on the phone for a week. We met at a point halfway between our homes (we live about 600 miles apart and in different countries). Wayyyy too soon to think about marriage! But we are planning to see each other again shortly, and as often as possible. I have no tips, except to say that chat really made the difference for me. He isn't a chatter, but he did sign in to the room and I saw him. I will miss that part because I did make friends there.
I met someone on the site and won't be looking anymore, Thank you. We first contacted each other on PS through email in May 2012. We started talking on the phone and skipping in October 2012 and met in person in November 2012 when he flew here, and again December 2012 when I flew to see him. We are in a relationship and very happy with each other. There are no plans for marriage yet but it is a thought we have had down the line.
