I feel very blessed that I have made a few nice friends. It was at that point I learned that if I wanted to meet serious minded and quality people, I would need to join a paid, professional site. There were many disappointments along the way, but after 500 people viewing my profile, I was contacted by another member in my State of Florida... After three weeks of endless telephone conversations and an intense friendship, we met.
I met a couple of you at the Garden of Eden benefit in Dallas a few years back and I wanted to let you know that I met a wonderful person because of your site. After three months we became lovers and partners for life, with plans to move in together in the very near future and get married.
A random friend mentioned Poz Match and I logged on and signed up on January 8, 2006. In February we got engaged and are planning a wedding.
By January 17th I got an e-mail from a seemingly great guy and on January 21st we had our first date. The date got cut short because he had a work function to attend, so the next day we had part II of our first date. I met the guy of my dreams through Poz Match and it has put a very happy ending on my story.
Meeting a wonderful HIV positive guy has further aided in my acceptance of having HIV. In fact, so long, I can not even remember what year I joined.
If it wasn't for HIV and Poz Match I never would have met my soul mate. I was divorced from my first marriage in 2002, five years after I was diagnosed HIV Positive. Being a member of so many poz sites, I had met so many scammers, liars, and questionable people.
Thank you for a chance to share, and take another step.
I have been HIV for 6 years and almost 4 years ago I was frustrated with a string of endless bad dates or meeting negative guys who were not comfortable dating an HIV positive guy.
I didn't know how to find another positive like-minded guy.
I have always had a quick and accurate response to my questions also. It has opened new doors for me, and, I greatly appreciate the opportunities it has provided.
It's so comforting to know that you are there incaring, and, outreach. I would just like to take a moment to say "the biggest hugs & thanks".
