We are kindred spirits and genuinely like each other.
I want to commend BlackSingles.com for providing a forum for individuals from a cross-section of society and from around the globe to meet, greet, develop friendships and even fall in love.
Upon receipt of an unsolicited e-mail in October '08, I joined this site without any expectations other than pure entertainment. I have met and gone out on dates with several wonderful gentlemen. And, though there was no love connection, we shared a genuine respect for each other and enjoyed our communications and dates.
Upon the eve of the expiration of my 6 month subscription in April of '09, I came across the most remarkable gentleman who truly touched my spirit. So eloquent, so sophisticated, so charming, so confident and secure. His words and prose spoke to my soul and he is authentic. An extremely intelligent man. Looking back, I find it even more special that the initial contact was on Easter Sunday, the Resurrection. In the ensuing three (3) months, PeaceWarrior and I have enjoyed each other's company in New York, London, Paris and the Caribbean and have FALLEN IN LOVE! The last trip involved meeting his family. Again, a perfect fit! We are kindred spirits and genuinely like each other. We marvel, at times, how the two of us, 5000 miles apart, could discern quite accurately, to date, how much of each other we have within. We are making plans for the future, which includes marriage and children.
I wanted to share our success story so that others will read it, have their curiosity peaked and know that this social networking/cyber dating really does work! I was skeptical although I read the success stories, but I was open. Know your needs and wants, strengths and weaknesses and don't settle. Enjoy the journey, be kind and respectful with prospects even if there isn't a love connection. Enjoy dating because when you least expect it, YOUR person will appear for you and all will be great!
Best wishes and good fortune to the BlackSingles.com family.
Jolienoire and PeaceWarrior.
