My boyfriend and I talked on the phone two weeks prior to meeting and we had emailed back and forth several times on the site for over a week prior to meeting. We initially planned a phone call but because he had plans with family that ran late we had to put the phone call off, which I thought was fishy. But he called when he said he would the next time. He is very busy with his work, which is not unusual for his level. The conversation went well, I could tell he wanted to get to the elimination round.
I truly didn't care if I was in or out and was ready to stop dating for a while at this point anyway, I had not had any prior dates from MillionaireMatch. I told him everything he wanted to know, including why my first marriage ended after 15 years, which is that my husband had decided to become a woman, that is enough to scare some men off right there. He wanted to know if I was ready for a serious relationship. That is precisely why I was dating, which I told him. Our conversation went over an hour and went very well. We decided we wanted to meet and left that open because I still was not sure what my schedule was with my THREE children (again another scary factor for some men). So, he rang me less than a week later and asked if we could get together. I wanted to see him, but I had made plans with a girlfriend to attend a play, she was not sure she was going to make it due to her work schedule so I told him I would have to get back to him.
I was going to be disappointed if I didn't get to meet this man who declared after I first "winked" at him on the site that we were a "match". So, I told my friend that I would prefer to meet this man that I've been trying to meet since she was unsure she could make it before doors close. I met my date at the theater and he was more down to earth and normal than I expected. I typically never made the first moves on the dating sites, but I did wink at about ten men on the same day that were all from the Houston area. I am sure glad I did that because I am so glad I met this one. He was the first man I met from the site, I don't ever want to meet another man. We had the best first date ever watching the Santaland Diaries that I had gotten tickets for and we walked to a historic hotel nearby that he knew of for dinner. He landed the first peck on the lips there. I usually do not want to kiss on the first date, but as we talked at dinner that night I could not help but think "Is this guy for real?", so his kiss was welcome. We have now been dating for almost eight months.
Initially when dating online, I had many rules for myself. I would not meet for more than a drink (waste of time, I thought). I would not initiate contact by emailing or winking. I am glad I bent the rules and decided to have a real date with a man who could carry on a good phone conversation and I winked at him first. I am a busy mom and I don't want to waste my time, but it is an investment of time. I had several REALLY bad dates for over 2 years before I met this man. I could write a very detailed book about those dates. But it was all worth it to meet the right person. My guy was also ready to throw in the towel, so keeping the attitude that they also have to take time out to make plans, be on time, shave, and generally carry on a good conversation and then pay the bill is a good start. It's a mutual effort.
I am glad I bent my rules and made the first move online. I had thought if they want to know me they would reach out, but some men who I might have been willing to get to know had eliminated me thinking I would not be interested in them. In fact, the man I am dating saw my pictures on another dating site and based on those thought I would not be interested in him. I disagree, I winked at him on MillionaireMatch.com. I initially made the mistake on my profile on another site of saying what I don't want, and I did much better finding what I want when I stated honestly what I wanted. I think men should do the same on theirs.
There is a lot of speculation on the site about if it is "real" or "does it work". All I know is that it has worked for me to find a man who accepts me and my children, which was the goal, not to find a millionaire. The site is as real as the people on it. I would recommend for the site to allow some interaction from successful members to new members of the same sex.
Regarding my girlfriend, she was listed in my compatible matches. I sent her an email, and we started corresponding. This leads to some very good phone conversations, and ultimately I decided to buy a plane ticket and go visit her in Montreal. Since then she has been to visit me twice, staying for several days at a time. We are currently planning a trip to Maui in August, and a meeting with the parents in September...so all going very well. We both believe we are the perfect match for one another. I know she does not mind me telling you this, but she is Viangel from your site. My relationship is serious and we have already been talking about marriage...but need a little more time together.
I actually conversed with quite a few people on your site, and it is by far the best site I have used. Match.com has too many scammers and people in general who are not serious. Eharmony wants to match you with who THEY think is best...not you. I think the fact that you take the time to verify pics, income, and education means that you reduce the chance of having scammers on your site. And the women are serious...not simply looking for millionaires but they want some one who is successful and real...and I wanted to find some one who was "real" as well. Truthfully, I emailed and talked with several high quality women from your site...I was really impressed!
Keep doing and encouraging the verification process...I really think that most women are not looking for a "millionaire" as much as they are looking for a man who is successful and has a real job. I am a physician not a wealthy businessman...I don't own a yacht and travel on commercial (not private jets). Ha. No one I met seemed to care...or maybe I just attracted this type of person...at any rate, I appreciate your website.
I came across my wife's picture and profile. I loved what I read, and sent a wink. She responded! We continued to email each other for three month. She lived in LA, and I lived in Midwest. Email turned to love, the love got stronger and stronger.
We decided we needed to meet, I travelled to LA to meet face to face, hoping we could also have that magical chemistry! We are both waiting patiently, and so excited for that moment. We could harly wait! For that moment!
The day arrived finally! The moment our eyes met...we knew...chemistry was there, and the magic was there!
From that day on we never separated. After spending a week together, that was enough to ask her to move with me to Texas. And I gave her my hand, and she took it without hesitation! We left for Texas a week later together. I asked her to marry me after six months, and "SHE SAID YES".
We got married two months later!
We are so madly in love with each other! We are so happy together, and we are so compatible! We have never been as happy with anyone in our lives. It is a true blessing, and a miracle!
We want to thank MM match, from the bottom of our hearts for being the reason we found each other!
Thank you all for your hard work, and God bless!
I am very pleased to tell that when I meet the man with the same values as mine, as well as same goals. I didn't want to keep looking for more. I am very willing to give it a chance. I wanted a serious relationship, and believe this is it. Thank you very much.
This was a wonderful website. I was also on match.com and eharmony and found the most success on MM!
I have found someone and we're planning on marriage. We had been looking at each others profiles for months before he finally messaged me. Days later he drove an hour to where I live for our first date (dinner) because I had to work early the next morning.
I had started moving in with him after 2 months and am interviewing for positions in Chicago. He is already engagement ring shopping. Things moved fast but at our age when you meet the right one you don't waste much time!
Be happy to share my success story. We started email for about 2 days, then moved to phone calls. I live in New Jersey and he lives in Florida via way of Australia. We spoke every night for hours for almost 2 weeks and decided it was time to meet, so he flew into NJ at the end of those 2 weeks for a long weekend at the beach.
We just knew it was the real thing even before we met. Maybe through the hours of open conversation, he hearing me supporting my friend who was in a hard place, and me loving his music. But he left and returned to Florida and within 3 days packed some things and drive from Florida to New Jersey to stay for the summer. He's still here and I really don't plan on letting him go back, lol.
Phil and I started talking online in April. I loved him before I ever met him which wasn't until the end of May because he lives on Maui and I live in Portland, Oregon. I spent four wonderful days with him at his home in Hawaii. We continued talking about EVERYTHING and before I left he booked a flight to Portland in June. We are planning a life together living part-time in Arizona, part-time in Hawaii and part-time traveling.
Feel free to ask him for more details. Philip G. Smith (Philipjazz). And thank you. I've used several dating sites since my husband died in 2008 but yours worked for me in a big way.
I became a member back in 2009, and met Todd in 2010 through MM! We have a little girl named Calentina and have been living together since October 2010! Our relationshiip is fillled with ups and downs but we love our little family! It all begin right here! Thank you guys!
On here for 1 week and met someone amazing. Had our first face to face after 2 weeks of constant emails, texts, talking on the phone at night. Beyond a dream come true. Deleting my profile for good. Thanks for a great service and a great man in my life.
I have met many wonderful women on MM and have found one who meet everything I desire. Wanting to focus on her it is best to terminate my membership. If things don't workout, I will rejoin.Thank you for this great service! George
I met some nice peolple on the site and I really enjoyed my time growing up my love experiences as well. Now I'm ready to live the real love. So that's why I'm leaving the site. Thanks to all staff. Francesca
I met the person I knew many years ago on here, and oddly it was like a face book moment, where you talk and share history. I can not say it is love or romance, but it is spirit of friendship and that is really nice to have.
I am right now in a relationship with a man from this site. We corresponded for about 3 weeks then we decided that we should meet. He flied with the airplane,we met in my city and went to a restaurant then I took him in a nice place for a long walk. Everything was great and still is.
I have been dating Rod. I am so grateful to you guys for helping me find this amazing man. We are getting married Sept 8 2012, and I am so excited! Honestly, I wasn't looking for marriage, and still can't believe its happening to me.
This site offers all the right tools, and variety to single women like myself. I thank you so much again!! He was on your site for years. We both thought it would be a good idea to let you know how happy we are:))
