Get Out There

No need to lie – I know there are many of you seeking out stories just like mine. You can wait to get out there and meet mr. self-deprecating or mr. other or, perhaps even, mr. right?!?!
I wanted to be sure I resourced you with the many ways out there you could do that. Most of you probably didn't even realize this many (FREE) dating sites were out there!
[Note: I am NOT on all of these sites...probably not even half. OK, seriously though, I have probably only tried four. But if you find any of these helpful or hilarious please do share]

Wait - you can "flower" people? Is that the opposite of "de-flowering"? How would that work?

ps - Thanks for giving credit where credit is due...pfsh.

Beware... I have a friend who went on positive.com thinking it was some kind of "the secret" think positive site. After falling for a guy, she found out he was HIV positive, and he was kind of confused why she wasn't.

LOL< this is great :) I didn't know there were dating sites for HIV positive people... I went to another interesting dating site, called Seeking Arrangement, it says that it helps people make mutually beneficial arrangements.. interesting
