I was on PS for about 6 months
I had good luck finding women on the site, by and large
I dated several
Typically first date was a meet n greet (15-30 mins) just to see if you like each other
If we did, we would go on subsequent "regular" dates
MOST of the women I dated 3-5 times; usually during this time we found things that made for some potential issue (e.g., drank too much...wanted too much involvement w/ children, etc.)
Others I dated much longer
In the end, the woman who we mutually chose I dated very briefly...we knew it very soon (all the checkboxes checked AND good, natural chemistry).
We hit it off on first meet n greet, and first date was wonderful
Strangely, if I went only by the "checklist" or what I THOUGHT was compatible issues, she was not what I was targeting (there were a couple things that normally I would have said, "eh, not exactly what I'm looking for"). But it turns out the "we both like sports" is significantly less important than "she has a wonderful demeanor" or "even temper."
We have both been married previously, so we are both somewhat apprehensive -- yet optimistic. Hopefully we have learned from our past and will build a heartfelt relationship.
Sorry, no photos :)
Found someone I really like! After emailing, texting, and video chatting for a couple weeks, the guy I was talking to drove 3.5 hours to see me and we had an amazing first date over the span of 2 days. We've hit it off way better than I could have imagined and hope we continue seeing each other. Thanks!
I have found love with a wonderful man from the site:
It was the beginning of April 2013. He saw me in the chat room and viewed my profile. I noticed that he viewed my profile, so I checked out his. I really enjoyed it but was disappointed that he lived 2000 miles away. With NO intentions, I sent him a “hello, loved your profile, wishing you the best of luck” email. He responded. We shared a couple of emails, and then we moved our conversation to the chat room. The chemistry already seemed to be there so the decision to Skype came quickly. Feelings and emotions began to grow and we both had to know for sure. He flew me up to British Columbia to meet him in person in August. The answer became apparent immediately. It was like two old friends that hadn’t seen each other in a few years. The obvious and undeniable love connection began our path toward each other. He flew to Michigan for Thanksgiving and spent two weeks meeting my family, friends and making great impressions with everyone. The obvious question became “What are you waiting for?” Falling in love has brought me to British Columbia. I packed up, left Michigan and moved here at the end of January 2014. We have begun the next part of our journey…together. I have met my Knight in Shining Armor.
I met a dynamic and lovely Woman here @ PS. We have been going slow and focusing on getting to know each other & become friends. I adore her and am hoping we can continue to build on what we already have. I'm grateful for this site and even more grateful for being approached by a great Woman here!
I was successful in finding someone that I feel very comfortable with. I will meet her on June 10, 2014 and spend a couple of days together. We have been talking via phone and text, since May 20, 2014. So I suppose that your site is a success.
Her user name is bluegirl13. We started to talk on Easter over messages and about four days later via text/phone. We talked all day through texting for about two weeks before we met and instantly hit it off. We have met a couple times since and it is only getting better each time. I paid for the 3 month subscription and met the love of my life 4 days later, it was still worth every penny and I thank you guys for having a great website.
We corresponded for 2 days before meeting via phone. We met on Wednesday May 8 in Richmond. He is a workaholic; but managed to escape work for 2 hours to grab coffee and go for a walk in the park with me. We are in a committed monogamous relationship with the possibility of living together and marriage in the near future. We're both very happy to have met each other. We have yet to take a couple photo.
We waited 4 months before meeting. He's in the eastern part or Missouri and I'm in Kansas. We were nervous about meeting, but quickly got over that. We are very much in love and talk about our lives together. Thanks P.S.
It all began with a "wink". I saw a picture of a male in my age range and area. He was standing with an older female (I took to be his Mom) and I thought "what a secure guy. He posts a picture with him and a loved one). So I winked at him. He responded. We messaged back and forth a couple of times and arranged a dinner date. It was magic! I can now say, three years after meeting we married and we will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary this August. Good things DO come to those who wait. Thank you, Positive Singles for providing this worthwhile service!
Thank you very much P.S. This site was a blessing for me. I found the most wonderful man. I love and I like him very much! I thank GOD for him every day! We are very happy!!! We will get married in God's time. I hope others find their soul mate here too. God Bless all of you.
Thank you so much for existing, My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years now, we are so happy, we moved in together a year ago and life couldn't be better. In a way I'm grateful for this blessing in disguise because I can't imagine being happier any other way. If anyone is reading this, I credit you for so many positive changes in my life. I am a nurse and whenever I newly diagnose a patient with herpes, I don't tell them my story but I do tell them about positive singles because I want to share the hope that was shared with me, thank you, thank you, thank you.
I would like to say thank you, for helping me find someone that I would see myself being with. Three years ago, I met someone else on this very site, who I thought was the right person for me and after giving up hope, I walked away not wanted to start all over again. Well I told myself, give it one more try and then I met Mackey2003. Great guy who has placed my faith that there are indeed some good men in this world. We talk all the time and I see him turning into my best friend, hopefully so much more...loving, caring, patient, etc.
I found a really great guy. It's crazy that we have never met but I feel a connection between us. He was just deployed to the other side of the world and I have to wait a whole year for him to get back to officially meet him. But It's going to be worth it and hopefully make our relationship stronger!
I have met a few nice people and hope to have a successful relationship.
This site has been amazing for me. I no longer feel isolated and know I can come to this site to share problems and have people who understand and live with the same issues. I am grateful that I found this because it has changed my life.Your site is excellent. I will definitely be back.
I joined the site soon after I found out I had hpv. I wasn't necessarily looking for love, but security knowing I wasn't the only one out there with this horrible std. I didn't want to feel alone, dirty, or worthless. I wasn't looking for a "boyfriend." I needed more. A friend. A person to lean on. Someone to sympathize. Most of all someone to accept me unconditionally. I would receive multiple emails a day as soon as I create my profile, but never could really respond to anyone. I mean really, online dating? I would open the message, read their information, and snoop through the pictures. None caught my attention until I got the email from him. What's the first thing I did you ask? The usually. Read the message, glanced the information, but this time I thought "hmmm, this one could be something." I googled how far we actually were from one another and notice it was only an hour away. So we emailed back until we exchanged numbers. We soon became friends and everything.
What did I do next? I ignored him. He was different than me. He wouldn't accept me. I told myself "really Jessica? You met a guy online, how pathetic!" He would like my pictures and send me a message sometimes, but for months I wouldn't respond. I had given up. No one was going to accept me.
One day of I got the courage to message him. We talked all night. The next day was up front with him. "Look Zack I want something serious, so if you have different intentions don't even worry about responding."
Soon after we were making weekend trips. I would hang out a day and go back home. But soon a day ended up being an over night stay and that led into full weekend visits. Now, after a year, we are getting ready to move in together. Hopefully next year we'll be getting married. So I found way more than just love on this site. I found my best friend, companion, and the one person I can trust no matter what.
We corresponded for two weeks before meeting. We then met at a public park/lake where we simply talked for hours and then we decided to grab dinner at a nearby restaurant. We've met a few times since, gone to a movie, walked around the lake, made dinner at my home. Marriage has not been discussed but we are certainly in a very close relationship.
I have actually met someone on here. I have met some great people on this site and it is by far the best dating site I have found for dealing with being positive.
She is the best thing that ever happened to me. I must admit that after years of searching and not meeting many people that I was getting discouraged and wondered if it was worth my time to be on the site anymore. Patience is definitely key when searching. That right person may not even be on the site at that moment but they are out there. The support on this site was excellent and made dealing with this much easier. Thank you again for this great site!
