Success Stories: 2009
Hello to everyone. This is Shaeme and I have found someone very special on here and I am very happy he is what I have asked for and he loves me for me and he loves everything about me; the good and the bad. Even though there is not much bad to see, he is a great man. I was skeptical about going on here again being that I had been on here before with no luck, but I'm glad I did. So to all you who are sincerely looking for that special someone, know what you want and have yourself together and they will come along and be right. And remember it doesn't always have to take forever, it can happen really fast if it's right. So thanks to all who showed interest in shaeme, but my search is over.
I MET A LADY FROM AUSTIN TEXAS ON 7/12/09. WE EXCHANGED PHONE NUMBERS AND STARTED SPEAKING EVERY DAY ALL DAY. WE BECAME MORE INTERESTED IN EACH OTHER, I LIVE IN LOS ANGELES. WE TALKED ABOUT THE DISTANCE, SO AFTER A FEW DAYS I FOUND OUT WHAT SHE WANTED AND I TOLD HER WHAT I WANTED. WE SEEM TO SHARE IN THE SAME IDEAS, SO SHE ASKED IF I WOULD MOVE AND I SAID YES. SO, I AM GOING TO VISIT HER FOR A WEEK AND THEN I WILL RETURN 3 WEEKS LATER TO LIVE WITH HER. I AM LOOKING FOR A POSITION THERE AS WE SPEAK. I BELIEVE WE LOVE EACH OTHER AND CARE A LOT FOR EACH OTHER VERY MUCH, AND WE ARE IN OUR EARLY FIFTIES. SHE IS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND I AM IN BUSINESS. OUR CHILDREN ARE GROWN AND WE ARE ALONE SO WE WANT TO SEE IF WE CAN MAKE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP OF IT AND MAYBE GET MARRIED IN THE FUTURE. IT ISN'T PERFECT, BUT IT IS VERY GOOD AND WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE EACH OTHER, SO THERE YOU HAVE IT...
I just wanted to say thank you to BlackSingles. I have met a lot of interesting and beautiful women on the site, but then one day I met someone special who caught my attention. Not only is she beautiful, she's kind, gentle, smart, fun and totally into me! We started sending smiles and cards, then we exchanged phone numbers. From there we started talking on the phone every day!, Finally we met for the first time, when she walked up to me and smiled...WOW!! She was even more beautiful in person! We spent the evening having dinner and talking and it felt as if we had known each other forever. I just couldn't take my eyes off her and I find myself now just looking at her with a smile on my face thinking this beautiful special person sitting here beside me is mine! She's everything I had hoped for. What's even better is that she feels the same way about me!!!
When I joined this site, my expectation was not the best because I had joined a few sites before and found that most of the men on the sites were not sincere about finding a mate, but more about playing games.
However, I decided to give this site a try and within a week of joining (April 17th) I sent a smile to charlesmoody49 of Denmark, SC or so I thought (his profile was showing Denmark, SC). He responded back by sending me a chat request, which I accepted. During our conversation I found out that he was actually in Washington, DC (he put in his old zip code by mistake). When I found out that he was not in SC, I was skeptical about getting to know him because a long distance relationship was not what I was looking for, but our conversations were so good that I decided to keep in contact with him. We would meet up online every night and chat for hours, then we started sending emails, then the phone calls started, then we decided to meet.
On June 12, 2009, he came to SC and spent the weekend. We hit it off right away and decided that we wanted to take the friendship to the next level. He has done more for me in 3 months than I could ever imagine and twice a month he sends me flowers at work. It has been a month since his visit and we are looking forward to the next one. He will be retiring in the next year and is planning to move back to SC.
Thank you BlackSingles and "YES" there are some good men on this site, you just have to weed out the bad ones.

I am dating a previous username: "doctorbyday". We met around the end of June. First there were smiles, cards, etc. and then we started chatting with each other on BlackSingles. We were both attracted to each others profile and looked beyond the cons of dating the same color code. We exchanged personal contact information so we could go on our first date. After meeting up with Mark, it was love at first site. We have so much in common that it seems unreal. I just want to tell all my sisters out there who are discouraged about finding a soul mate, that there are great gentlemen out here, you just have to be ready to commit. Tell the truth about yourself in your profile and you will find the man that you have been looking for. Thank you Tasha, I was very pleased with this site.
I would have never believed that I could find the person of my dreams on a dating website, but I did. We did. Intelligentdrew has been the greatest blessing to my life, on the side of my children. I want to thank BlackSingles.com for providing a map to my true happiness.
I signed up with BlackSingles on June 11th '09 after typing into the google bar 'dating single black men in the UK'. [I'm British.] Within the first few minutes of browsing, it became apparent that this site predominately catered for American clients. However, I thought, "I've paid my money so I might as well stick around".
On the 17th of June '09, I received an e-mail from a man with the profile name of 'Mufasared'.
His interest in me was certain and the compliments were flowing, but I was not moved, because he physically did not fall into my stereotyped image of what my 'Mr. Right' should look like.
We continued to exchange conversations and to my surprise, I found my heart warming towards him. He was intelligent, respectful, caring, knew the word of God and made me laugh. [I couldn't quite understand the pull that he had on me, because at that point I was not attracted to him.]
However, one day he sent me a video message and I was able to see the animated Mufasared. It was then that I said to myself, "This man is quite sexy".
Well, since then we've grown closer and closer, via phone calls, twice a day, video link conversations and post correspondence.
We are serious about each other and have spoken about getting married, having children and living in the UK or the States. We are due to meet in Aug/Sept of this year.
We're so much in love with each other. He is the man that I have been praying to meet for the best part of my life and he has all the qualities a woman could ever want in a man. What makes it so wonderful is that these feelings are mutual.
I'd like to thank BlackSingles for providing us with this forum, since without your web site we wouldn't have met and I'd still be searching, in hope of filling that gap in my heart.
Once upon a time there was a man in the US who decided that in his backyard that maybe the love of his life would not be found. After joining BlackSingles and wading in the water of possibility, that which seemed highly improbable, became very probable. I met Ginger67 from the UK. After reading her profile and engaging in the many thought provoking conversations, we decided that a new love was born. I want to thank BlackSingles for the platform that brought Ginger67 and Mufasared together. Loving me some Ginger67.
Well, I met Hotsweething in December and we hit it off from the very beginning...and what was so awesome about our contact is that we are from the same town. I wanted her, but never had the opportunity to get close to her. But when I found BlackSingles, I found her, so I can truly say that this site works. I have found my dream in this woman that every man wants, so I will thank you now because I am soooooo happy. My mom loves her and her mom loves me...the whole family is so happy for us. What you and God did together for us, it can happen for someone else. Therefore, those of you who are still looking, don't let it come to you, God is still in control and he has your date waiting for you. We are about to go now...we have to start a long life together. Thanks BlackSingles...thanks to you, I found my baby!
Well, my match initially contacted me over 8 months ago, but we never actually talked on the phone. We communicated through a few emails, but missed a couple of opportunities to speak to one another. There was the issue of long distance, but he is willing to move to my city. I had been busily working and completing a degree, not to mention being a single parent raising a teen-age daughter. After a lot of conversations, we knew it was in divine order that somehow we still managed to hook up and since recently we have talked constantly and plan on being together in the same city. It didn't happen until it was time, but it happened. Now love has definitely been ignited and we are in it for the long haul...
