I connected with Mark from Auckland and we bonded over video chats for months. Despite the distance, we decided to meet in person for a weekend getaway in Napier. The chemistry we felt online intensified, and we have now made the move to living in the same city to be together. I am grateful I took a chance on long-distance love and stepped outside my comfort zone.
I took things slow, chatting online with Rachel for nearly 3 months before meeting face to face. The anticipation made our first date even more special, and their second date led to a third. Now, we purchased a house together—a milestone neither imagined reaching when they first connected on the PositiveSingles. For us, slow and steady wins the race.
I have been single for a decade and was focused on my career. Secretly, I longed for a companion to share my life with but doubted there was anyone out there who would accept my genital herpes diagnosis. On PositiveSingles, I met Michael, a widower and single dad. We bonded over a love of cooking, travel and family.

I open up like a fine wine after decanting, except in my case, the decanting process can take a few dates - and the fact that I don’t know much about wine! I’m a bit of an introvert, although I’m adept at working around it for social interactions. I like to stay in and curl up on the couch to watch a movie and I’ll also have a ridiculously good time bowling quite badly. I practice gratitude and good manners; I treat everyone with equal respect. Everyone confides in me - I’m both a good listener and discreet. I’m observant but not judgmental.
Traveling to new places is a definite must. I love how peaceful the mountains are but at the same time they are incredibly complex. When it comes to life, love and the future I am very open minded and optimistic. Learning is never ending, its a necessity. I am very appreciative of a traditional and conservative outlook. I am not one to debate who is correct and who is incorrect, we can coexist. I am not here to change anyone, I just want to be an addition and continue to grow with one another.
Quirky, and fun, with that mischevious glint in my eye just for my guy! Looking for that life partner to ride off into the sunset with for this second half of life., I still *believe* it can happen!! Active, adventurous, independent, confident and often silly. Compassionate, and caring. I'm that gal always helping people - friends, family and strangers who almost always become friends. Involved in my community, and the neighbor everyone knows. I own my own business so have an intended flexible schedule to keep the work/life balance more tilted toward life!
