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 did read many tips from your site that I found very interesting. I don't think I could add anything more for anyone's use. I would have liked to use your site more often, like when my kids were home, but it was too obvious I was on a positive site at all times. I know there is a quick exit, but my daughter wanted to "help me" and I couldn't let her see. Not that I would have shown her much. I know it would be too difficult though as it is set up to see details about each person. Just rambling. 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. I was also surprised how few people were available in my area if there are 30% or so afflicted. I put my pics on it, but was nervous about the wrong person seeing it, but if I didn't have pics, I wouldn't have had as many responses. Hiding my pics
now, I don't hear from anywhere near as many. Thankyou so much for having this site available to me, and I hope I won't need it again. But will definately come back if this new relationship is not meant to be.
