Grateful for GreenSingles. Got off to a very unpleasant start with one of your members. Fortunately, your staff took quick action to remedy the situation. Soon after that experience, I met the most amazing GreenSingles member and we are enjoying the blissful stages of falling in love. I highly recommend this site for setting a new standard in internet dating. Of course, it's all about writing a thoughtful and honest profile. GreenSingles seems to have created a venue for finding a partner that matches core values including respecting each other and this planet we share.
In gratitude~~ S

Just over a year ago, I met a wonderful man on your site. Please remove me from your member list, as I have found an amazing partnership and am very happy. Thanks for doing what you do!
|We are now working on about 7 months...|
|March 12th, 2013|
Hi Alan and Mary,
The story might not be what you want but I will give you a snippet to see if you want to know more of the details.
I had decided to take a hiatus from dating and at about that same time a green singles member contacted me. I politely told her that I was taking a break; thanks but no thanks. Many weeks later, totally out of the blue, she showed up at one of my regular contra dance venues, I recognized her from her profile photo on GreenSingles and asked her to dance. That was it, we both enjoyed each other's abundant energy and were very attracted to each other. However, I was still ‘trying' to take a break and kept on trying to keep her at arms length. Even after I failed, I still tried to keep her at arms length. Our separate stated goals did not include a relationship and for many months we struggled against the obvious budding relationship. I think it is fair to say I struggled against our attraction to each other the most, however, we both had a difficult time letting go of our expectations... to not be in a relationship.
We are now working on about 7 months and have found a lot of common ground from our parallel journeys. It hasn't been easy, at all, but it has been a very good personal growth experience.
That's my story and I am sticking to it!
If you'd like to hear more please let me know, I am sure Susan would like to have an opportunity to comment as well.
Here's Susan's story:
i met don on greensingles, we exchanged several e-mails, and eventually, we planned a meeting; a date. he invited me to go contra dancing. never been before, and was a bit nervous, but mostly, was embracing the opportunity to try something new. had a lot of fun... although was not sure about the rules of engagement regarding contra dancing. just before the mid-dance break, a stranger approached me. he asked, "are you from newfane?"
"i am." i answered. he responded with another question: "can i have the next next dance?"
i replied in the affirmative, yet my exact words escape me. consumed with curiosity as to who this man was and how he knew me. had just mentioned to don how i was surprised to not see anyone i knew at the dance, and then this stranger, who seemed to know me, approached.
don, my date, seemed perplexed as well... wondered if i'd messed up. should i not have told this man i'd dance with him? noticed everyone else dancing with other people, not paired up with the same person every dance. did dance with a few other people, and don sat out those dances, watching me. eventually the waltz came, and don and i danced again. he had already told me that he was going to leave early and it became clear that he was waiting until after the waltz.... so, afterward, walked him to his car and said goodbye and went back to the stone church to dance with the stranger.
the stranger introduced himself as john. still, had no recollection of how i knew this person, until he mentioned greensingles. ah ha! like a light bulb going off, was reminded of the profile of the man who liked to leave crumbs on the floor.... recalled a profile picture of him in a canoe or kayak and he recalled a profile picture of me among snowy pines.
seen the stranger's profile and really enjoyed what he had to say -- especially this bit about how "life should be taken in big bites that leave crumbs on the floor...." the smile i sent him was simply: "i like your profile." and had no expectations that anything more would come of it. in his profile, he said he was taking a year-long hiatus from dating, and i'd stumbled upon his profile near the beginning of his solitary journey. respected that, and honestly, had no interest beyond sharing with him that i in fact enjoyed reading his profile. he responded to my smile eventually with "enjoyed your profile, too, my dear. life is incredible." and signed it "john." he also mentioned in this profile that he was looking for a woman who is "curious, a bit crazy and impulsive and who has balance in her life for an 'us'.
when john and i danced, for me, the connection was immediate and electric. wanted to stay at the dance and learn more about this john foster, but chose instead to go home. somehow it felt wrong to stay after i'd been invited by another. as i began to leave, john caught my arm and asked: "can i call you?" "thought that was against your rules." i replied. "i think you're worth bending the rules for." he said.
it's been about 7 months now, and, according to john, he's still bending his rules for me..... and it's been difficult for me, as well, but the struggle has resulted in tremendous rewards as i've made room, gradually, for an "us". this process has not been seamless or without hic-ups. i have ascended and descended.... held on and let go.... grown and learned.
from a journal entry from mid-september:
something bright and brilliant has entered my life.
his energy has seeped into me
swimming inside my veins
becoming part of who i am.
indelible marks are being made.
yet, nothing is permanent.
we can only rely on change.
and still, a moment shared is a lesson learned.
so greensingles has lead to the opportunity to meet someone with whom i am spending time with. someone with whom i am romantically linked. and yes, we intially met on greensingles, and perhaps john never would have asked me to dance had it not been for the smile i sent to him... who knows... but perhaps the abundant universe had plans. since a greensingles exchange did not lead to anything more than that, other possibilities were created in order for our paths to cross once again.
let the adventure continue...
|We are still together today and forever after!|
|February 27th, 2013|
Dear Green Singles,
We have been meaning to share our success story for quite a while. Tim was the first person I talked with and met through the site, and we are still together today and forever after: gardening, bamboo farming, homesteading, cooking, hiking and learning from each other. It was amazing to meet someone I had dreamed of for so long who shared my love for the planet and strong earth-lovin' values.
|"This is what happiness looks like".|
|February 24th, 2013|
Dear Mary and Alan,
Please cancel my account as I no longer need it. Thank you very much for being the best link for me to find my best friend and my soul mate. I have met and engaged to be married to a wonderful person through your website. I am very happy and stop searching.
|I could probably write a book!|
|January 15th, 2013|
Dear Green Singles... I could probably write a book on the experiences I've had on green singles over the years with a fairy tale ending of "finding" the love of my life just a few miles (40) away and someone I'd known well a couple decades ago. In the meantime I communicated with, dated, spent various amounts of time with, from a week to several months to a year. I ended up with the best match of all, and curiously enough someone I probably would have met and gotten together without GreenSingles, but GS certainly made it happen a lot sooner!!!!I I live in a rural area with a very, very small pool of alternative/greeny folks, so GS has been a lifeline for any time at all dating or exploring relationships.
Thank you green singles. I'm sure you see on my membership data I've been involved a lot for a lot of years. This is a very merry goodbye and thanks. Sincerely, applejack
|Have met a friend|
|January 8th, 2013|
Have met a friend on your site and have enjoyed that, but want to remove my profile. How do I do that? I will recommend, this is the only dating site that feels like it has substance.
|January 8th, 2013|
I have met someone on your site and will have been dating them for a year in February. Thank you for helping me find someone that shares many of the same interests as I do.
Thank You, Pam
|I bit the bullet and tried online dating|
|November 26th, 2012|
Hello, I just wanted to add to your list of success stories. I bit the bullet and tried online dating after my best friend met her husband on this site and another friend as well. My partner and I met on your site back in July of 2011. After emails and phone calls for a about two months we finally decided to get over our fear of meeting each other and did so. We still travel back and forth between MA and NH but the plan is to move in together soon. We both still find it odd that we actually met through the internet but so happy we did. We get along so well and with each others friends and family too, it's like we've known each other all along.
Thanks green singles,
|Thank You GreenSingles for helping to unite us in love!|
|November 6th, 2012|
John and I met 2 years ago through your site and began a long distance relationship between Maine and New York. We wrote daily and visited as much as we could until we moved in together after close to a year of getting to know each other from afar. 6 months later we decided to get married and have been planning life, a farm and for a family together ever since. The bliss we have found is out of this world, thank you for allowing us to meet.
We love you GreenSingles <3 Kate and John
|Here's to new beginnings!|
|September 17th, 2012|
Hello staff at GreenSingles,
First of all, thank you so much for this service you provide. It was really hard for me to sign up on an on line dating site, but I felt perfectly safe and fine with it, on your site. I even checked out a couple others, and they totally freaked me out! Pop ups about "mail order women" and such!
I was very self conscious about being online, but soon you realize, oh, we all are. Everyone here is... so what's the big deal. I was on your website for all of 2 weeks, when I met Emily. I realized how this online thing has its own kind of beauty. See, I come with a lot of baggage at this point of my life, but it's all there for her to read... and she had the same! Also, I read her profile before she put up a photo, and even with no photo, it just clicked, and I sent her a smile right away.
From that first correspondence, neither of us wrote with anyone else... it felt very right, right off the bat. We now have gone on 4 dates, despite the 3 hours between us, and so far, it has been dream come true type experiences. We are still very new together, but for now any way, we are both exactly what the other needed, and are having a lot of fun together too. I probably won t get to writing again... if things keep getting better... I am taking my profile down today.
So I thought I'd write now, and say thank you and good luck to everyone else out there searching! I will send a photo when I have a nice one to send.
Thanks again! She is so wonderful! Here's to new beginnings!
Ian aka mais si
|Thank you, thank you, thank you.|
|August 27th, 2012|
I will be taking my bio/photo/story off the website because .... it worked!
I met one of the greensingles members and we are off to the start of a life together. Although we haven't even seen each other yet in person, we already know.
It is with great joy I write this note, and tremendous gratitude. The friend who recommended greensingles met her partner there...and now it's my turn.
I can hardly believe I'm writing this, but because of what you do, I have found the man I've been waiting for. Many thanks. You can be sure I'll tell everyone I know where we met!
|My heart told me I had to do it.|
|August 22nd, 2012|
Thanks for your wonderful site. I've met some pretty awesome people here. One person in particular I've been talking with since Nov. and in June I flew 3000 miles to meet him, unbeknownst to him. It was a huge risk, but my heart told me I had to do it. I'm so glad I did because it was like going home, just writing to you about 2 months later brings tears to my eyes. I wound up staying there for a week, it was the most comfortable I've ever been. I cried all the way from SEA to LGA. Without this site I wouldn't even know him, and now he's family to me.
Thank You... Suzanne
|The miracle happened|
|August 19th, 2012|
I met a wonderful person through your site about 6 months ago. I was about to give up after almost 2 years... when the miracle happened so I am very grateful to your web site, the freshness and awareness it brings to our daily life.
|Thanks for the matchmaking "nourishment"|
|July 13th, 2012|
I've been a member for a few years now, but haven't found my match here. For one thing, I'm gay, and the "pool" is much smaller.
But I wanted to thank you for another reason.
In the crazy and often negative world we live in, it's so great to read people's profiles here, and to especially read success stories. It feeds my spirit that there are still such warm-hearted, spiritual and loving people out there.
To those members who feel "anxious" about contacting someone, that's understandable. Most of us are anxious about the unknown.
But think of it as a spiritual practice: expanding our experiences. We can either believe that life means protecting ourselves, or that it means growing. I choose the latter at all times (though not without anxiety!). I hope you will too. After all, you're on greensingles!
Much appreciation to you, Mary and Alan, for this site. You don't know how much good you do, even when it doesn't always result in matches.
from: Arthur R.
|Thank you for this wonderful site!|
|April 25th, 2012|
I met some friendly fellows through the interactions here, and I appreciated the opportunity to communicate with like-minded individuals, and to get real with them about what I want and don't want in a life partner and situation.
The exercise of writing my profile was a powerful lesson for me in being clear with who I am, what kind of relationship I'd like to manifest, and with whom. In fact, after I wrote my profile, I realized that it actually might fit a local friend of mine that I've known for years. I asked him out, and as we got to know each other, I've found that he fit even the subtler points to a T. Amazing! After six weeks of dating, we're now having a go at a relationship, and it's begun really well!
My feelings grow daily, he impresses me daily, and I'm excited for what the future may hold for us. I'm grateful to GreenSingles for the opportunity you offer to clarify our feelings and desires. Thanks for the great works!
|Much love and appreciation!|
|April 17th, 2012|
Funny you should email me!!! I have been wanting to email you guys.
I met my DREAM man on your site - even though we live on opposite sides of the country, I am planning to move there the end of June. We have even met each others families already and it is a blessing for all of us!
I am SOO grateful to you for your site - it allowed us to find each other and be open to letting things transpire despite our location...greensingles is a great place for conscious people to connect and build something wonderful for the world and planet. I recommend your site regularly to my single friends.
Thanks again - while this sounds funny, I hope to never be on your site again! :-) Heehee.
Much love and appreciation!

|And baby makes three!|
|February 23rd, 2012|
|Eleanor, Lewie and Danielle|
I sent Lewie a 'smile' on January 1st of 2008. It was the start of a very good year. We talked online for a month or so before meeting in person on Valentine's Day. It wasn't long before I moved the two hours away to live with him, by August we were married. Since then our lives have taken us from Ohio to New Mexico and now we are in Tennessee enjoying the outdoors near the Smoky Mountains. This past year we celebrated the birth of our first child, Eleanor. She was delivered by a midwife and came out a healthy 8 lbs 4 oz. We feel so fortunate to have been able to find each other. It's refreshing to have found someone that cares about the same issues that I do. We are so thankful for GreenSingles for providing this for us. We now hope to instil the same values we liked in each other to our daughter. We have already gone on several hiking trips with her (see photo) and she seems to already enjoy the great outdoors as much as we do. Thanks GreenSingles!
|1/17/2012 - Thank you for your service and for caring.|
|January 17th, 2012|
The services that Green Singles provides includes the chance to investigate and the chance to look for another person that is looking for things that are important and someone to share them with. The second thing that I learned is what I am looking for in a life partner, in other words, I had a chance to take a closer look at myself and understand what I wanted and what I was able to share.
Thank you for your service and for caring.
|1/11/2012 - A most interesting experience|
|January 11th, 2012|
Hi Mary and Alan,
Being a member has been a most interesting experience. Thank you for providing a potential vehicle by which people of similar thinking can meet!
|1/5/2012 - everything clicked beautifully for us|
|January 5th, 2012|
I am cancelling my account for a good reason. I tried match.com and eharmony but felt like it was hit or miss and a bit overwhelming. Maybe I am just picky but with all the actvity I never felt like I found many truly likeminded matches on these sites. I tried greensingles on a whim. Although the activity was less, the members I met were much more a fit with my beliefs and lifestyle.
I started corresponding with Bill in August, we met in person September 10th and everything clicked beautifully for us. I am starting out 2012 amazed and rejoicing for this gift.
With thanks and gratitude,
|I want to encourage people to take the chance|

Michael and I joined Greensingles from very different places. I was recently divorced after 30 years of marriage. This was the first time I attempted to meet someone on-line.
Michael had participated in Greensingles for years. I was very nervous starting to meet men again after all those years but decided to dive in and try. Greensingles highly suggested to reach out and write someone, so that's what I did. I read a lot of profiles, wrote a few people, but was immediately drawn to Michael's profile. He wrote right back and we emailed for a few weeks. On our first date, we spent the whole day together. We both had a good time and agreed to meet the following weekend. And we've been together ever since - about 10 months.
I want to encourage people to take the chance of meeting someone. You can meet all kinds of people whether you get to have a long relationship or not. Everyone feels nervous when trying this but there's nothing to lose.
As Fran said, we came from slightly different places. I'd tried a couple of different sites and had been with Green Singles over a year. While she was nervous and a little scared about jumping in, I'd been in the pool for a while. I'd met several interesting women but nothing really clicked. Quite honestly, I was getting a bit discouraged. Initially, I thought Fran would probably just be an interesting lunch date. We hit it off and here we are ten months later. We're just hoping this post will encourage those hesitating to take the leap and those who might be getting discouraged. Go for it and hang in there.
|12/19/2011 - I feel really blessed.|
|December 19th, 2011|
I didn't meet my partner through GreenSingle but I have to tell you that it was very helpful! Thinking and writing down what I was looking for in a man helped me fnd my current partner. As they say ask and you shall receive!! I actually met this really nice guy right after I posted and even showed him the post which was funny b/c he also could see himself in the post. I feel really blessed.
Thank you for managing GreenSingles, a friend of mine met her current partner through GreenSingles and they are doing awesome.
I would recommend it to anybody looking for a partner who is down to Earth!
|12/6/2011 - I am so happy that we have come together|
|December 6th, 2011|
Hi Alan and Mary,
Just wanted to let you know that I cancelled my account because I met someone through your site.
After many attempts off and on with other sites, I found someone who could turn out to be a long term match.
We started corresponding through Green Singles in August of 2011, and have been dating since then, with a mutual recognition of our potential. I am grateful that you created this site for those of us who are awakening and becoming more conscious about our role on this planet.
My new love and I have found that we each complement the other in significant ways, and I feel that she has come into my life at just the right time with just the right gifts. There is still so much more to know about one another, and I look forward to the exploration. I am so happy that we have come together and appreciate that Green Singles was the vehicle of our meeting. So thank you for your help and I will keep you posted on the development of our relationship. I have a feeling this could last.
|11/21/2011 - I cannot believe it.|
|November 21st, 2011|
Hi guys! You are the best singles site ever, ever. I've never been contacted disrespectfully by anyone and I never felt like I was at a meat market in any way. Only met very cool and interesting people from around the country. Best of all, I met a really, really awesome guy and we hit it off so well that we are planning how to move to the same town and live our lives together. I cannot believe it. And I can't believe what a great relationship it is, with someone sensitive, aware, loving, with great values. Thank you so so much. I tell everyone (cool) about your site :))

|11/4/2011 - a big thank you hug|
|November 4th, 2011|
Dear folks..... thank you!
I want to thank you for having me here at G.S. It has been fun, and I have been very appreciative of the way you manage the site. Every time I have had a question, I received a prompt and curteous response... and it was free!
Not only that, but a wonderful man found me and after much email back and forth we started talking on the phone. First thing we discovered we have the same birthday. After about two and a half months he came down to P.R. to visit and it was terrific. We not only found each other attractive and exciting but we were immediately comfortable together.
So next month he is coming back and we are going to live together. Life is good. We might never have found each other without your site... but then perhaps we would have. who knows.
Well, wally and zochi send y'all a big thank you hug and sign off to give our spaces to someone else that they too might find someone wonderful!
|By June we were hooked.|
|October 31st, 2011|
Dear Mary and Alan,
I met the most amazing woman through your Green Singles website. We began writing in March. By June we were hooked. Small obstacle: she lives in Massachusetts and I'm in Washington State. There's something very intimate and yet backwards about getting to know somebody through writing and phone calls. Something secretive and mysterious. The opposite of physical. The opposite of real. I had two rules for myself when I signed up over a year ago: no long distance dating and meet the girl right away. Good idea, but for some reason I couldn't really control these things as much as I thought. She booked a flight out here in July and after much anticipation and build up, we finally met. For the first time. And yet we had a depth of connection and an ease of communication with each other already. Needless to say, this is only the beginning. The beginning of what I hope is a lifelong friendship and love. The beginning of what I know for sure is amazing.
Thank you for your role in helping us to find each other. It would have taken a lot longer without you...
Please remove my profile,
11/1/2011-Dear Mary and Alan,
Almost two years ago now, I saw the profile of a man on your website and thought to myself, "Wow, he seems like the perfect partner for me. Too bad he lives all the way in Washington state and I just moved to Massachusetts." I bookmarked his profile briefly but soon forgot all about him, at least on the surface. In the meantime I made some wonderful connections and learned so much about myself through Greensingles contacts, but I hadn't quite found that "special someone". Then, this spring (2011) I began to think--for seemingly inexplicable reasons--about moving to Washington, a place I'd never been. On a whim I searched for profiles of men in Washington. Again, there was a profile that caught my attention. I read it thoroughly before a faint fog of recognition set in: my "perfect partner." I sent a message figuring, "What could it hurt? Let's see what happens." And what happened was, is, and continues to be a blessing that grows with every little bit of love and fertilizer we add. I feel so lucky every single day that somehow in this vast, complex world I've been allowed to find such an amazing man, been allowed to participate in the building of such a powerful and unusual cross-continental relationship. We've each made cross-country journeys as we've interwoven our lives, and by next Spring I will be in Washington where Travis and I will be planting seeds in the same soil. Thank you for making it possible for us to find each other...and please happily remove my profile.
|9/30/2011 - Ongoing success -- update|
|September 30th, 2011|
I sometimes forget that GreenSingles was the reason Darin and I met. I was reminded today while chatting with some friends about online dating. Then I realized I haven't sent you guys an update for awhile.
Darin and I just celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary. You can see our business online at our website: www.goodlifefarms.com. We are now a fully-functioning, sustainably-run hydroponic farm, supplying farmers markets, restaurants and groceries in our area. I was able to quit my job in 2009.
We have had two beautiful baby girls, Josephine (2) and Autumn (1).
Life is good! Thank you, once again, for providing the forum that brought us together. ... Deb
|9/24/2011 - Lightening does strike|
|September 24th, 2011|
Dear Alan and Mary,
Dean: Lightening does strike. After two years of meeting great people online, Green Singles worked miracles for both of us. I had been married for 38 years before my wife died from brain cancer about two years ago. I thought I could never love someone as much as I did her, but lightening does strike and what seems to me to be a miracle has happened. Danna and I met through Green Singles and fell in love within two days of meeting. We are so happy now and looking forward to a long future together.
Danna: And as for me, I knew that there were qualities I needed to find in my prospective mate that were non-negotiable, which made it hard to hold out for the great man that, amazingly, after two years of searching, I found in Dean. Life is so complete, and we wonder if any couple in the world feel as in love as we do today.
We want to encourage all of those who get discouraged with online dating to continue to search for your heart needs and desires. It takes patience and persistence to find the right person, but it will happen if you just keep at it. Thank you for providing this excellent site without which we would probably still be wandering out there missing each other.
Danna and Dean
|6/28/2011 - I will always be grateful for GreenSingles|
|June 28th, 2011|
Dear Alan & Mary et al,
I am delighted to report that GreenSingles was the vehicle for introducing me to my soon to be husband, Nick. I have referred 3 people to your site and enjoyed email conversations with several very interesting and lovely men.
I will always be grateful for GreenSingles bringing me together with the fulfillment of my personal dreams.
THANK YOU!!! ...Claire
UPDATE: I'm writing this Thank You note from our honeymoon. After receiving the first message from Soil & Seed on January 31st, 2011, we've enjoyed a whirlwind, joyous, playful and fulfilling courtship. We married on the full moon of August surrounded by loving and happy friends and family at our farm. We're so happy we finally found each other and so looking forward to getting to know one another over the years. Neither of us expected an internet site to yield our ultimate marriage partner, but we're extremely grateful that GreenSingles connected us. Many blessings and thanks for providing this service.
Claire (Make mine morning)
|6/5/2011 - amazed that we met each other in this way|
|June 5th, 2011|
Dear Mary and Alan,
My partner and I met on Green Singles a little over two months ago. We are constantly amazed that we met each other in this way, and we are planning to be in a long term, committed relationship. We thought you would want to know. If you would like more information, please get in touch.
All the best and thank you for providing such a wonderful site... Frances
|5/1/2011 - found by my true soulmate|
|May 1st, 2011|
Grateful Greetings !
Having, finally, been found w/in Green Singles by my true Soul Mate, the day before Valentine's Day, and responded favorably to his note the day after Valentine's Day, I am happy to say that we are harmonious together, and committed to our relationship.
So, please remove my profile from your excellent network. Thank you for your superb service!
|3/16/2011 - We began something like a Victorian courtship|
|March 16th, 2011|
Dear Mary and Alan,
After three years of dating through the usual sites someone told me about Green Singles. I could see right away that although there were few men within 200 miles of me, they were all like-minded. I put up a profile and the next day received an inspired and inspiring message from Craig. We both have little houses in the bush, three hours apart. We began something like a Victorian courtship - all in writing for a couple of weeks. When we talked on the phone the first time, four hours seemed like one. We were already making long term plans before we met, we were so sure the 'chemistry' was there. When we did meet we knew immediately that we fit. We're both around sixty, so finding love at this point in our lives is an amazing gift, thanks to your site.
Many, many thanks and skies of blessings,
|3/13/2011 - you are welcome to quote me|
|March 13th, 2011|
First off, let me just say that you have the best site going for online dating. I love the format, it's private (no interruptions by people who are seeing you online) yet accessible (searches are great), and everyone seems to be really genuinely friendly, healthy, nice, considerate, and wonderful. I have tried three other popular sites, and yours exceeds my every desire and expectation. I'm very fit for my age, and on other sites, I've had such a hard time finding similarly fit matches. I feel confident I'm going to meet some great friends, and maybe even someone amazingly special on GreenSingles, and you are welcome to quote me (I'm a marketing professional). Frances
|3/11/2011 - ...all melted away with a kiss.|
|March 11th, 2011|
Within days of creating my profile, I was contacted by Nicholas from Alabama. He had just created his profile too. We sent each other a few e-mail messages, then a few texts, then finally, on St. Patrick's Day 2009 I got up the courage to call. This was truly the beginning of something wonderful. We spoke to each other every day for the next three months until I flew from Wisconsin to meet him in Alabama. I was so nervous going through the airport, knowing that I would see him for the first time. When we met it was awkward for a moment, but that all melted away with a kiss. I spent one week in Alabama with him, then he came to Wisconsin for a week. There he met my six-year-old daughter and they became fast friends. We had so much fun through it all that we just kept rolling with it, and soon we were helping him move across the Mason-Dixon Line. We married on August 29, 2009, just five months after we met. We stayed in Wisconsin for a year, which was enough for my dear southern gentleman, then moved to Hawaii. We love plants, and have hundreds in our yard, we also enjoy biking through our quiet town and hiking the forests and beaches. We have had our tough times and have made it through with faith in each other and strength in our spirit. Thank you GreenSingles for bringing us together.

Thanks for letting me update my profile so many times. I just joined Green Singles and I probably have tweaked the profile 50 times! In 15 or so hours I have received "smiles" in response to ones I sent, and my profile has been looked at several times. And I have exchanged messages with two men. Much better than my experience with eharmony.
I can't remember how I first heard about Green Singles but I was reminded of your site by ads in High Country News when I received a gift subscription about a year ago. What prompted me to check out the website again, and register for the first time, was yesterday's segment on the Today Show.
|2/8/2011 - Love connection from green singles|
|February 8th, 2011|
My partner Randee and I want to extend our deepest appreciation for providing a wonderful green friendly dating service to allow us to discover each other. We connected on line on Valentine's Day last year and have been creatively collaborating on a journey of unfolding love for each other. This is a match that makes us feel grateful to be alive with all the intimate affirmations of finding a true love with a fondness for nature and the good life.
Sincerely yours, Dennis and Randee

|1/7/2011 - We hit it off immediately|
|January 7th, 2011|
Hi, Mary and Alan, Today marks the fourth week anniversary from when Cliff and I met in person, after making contact on GreenSingles. We had both been widowed, and are both progressives who care about our natural environment and the future of our planet. This site narrowed down our choices to people of like mind, and when we met, we hit it off immediately. I have been promoting your site ever since.
Thanks so much for what you do! Nancy
|1/4/2011 - We are very compatible in many important areas of our lives.|
|January 4th, 2011|
Nancy and I met in person 25 days ago. Apparently, each of us liked what we read on Green Singles and arranged to meet in person. Fortunately, we live only one hour apart so we met for dinner about halfway between us. We had a very good evening and then parted. From that point on, both of us wanted to meet each other again. We have been together for many of the past few days and have found that we are very compatible in many important areas of our lives. Both of us chose Green Singles as a likely place to meet a person with similar interests in the outdoors, nature, adventure travel, ecological ethics, and social justice. We are glad to be together. Thanks for helping that to happen. Cliff
|12/31/2010 - How we met on Greensingles|
|December 31st, 2010|
Would you be interested in linking to our YouTube musical clip of how we met on Greensingles? We started corresponding and got married several months later. Our clip is called, "I'm Falling For You" located at: http://www.youtube.com/user/merrykenmusic
|12/22/2010 - I am no longer searching|
|December 22nd, 2010|
Dear Alan and Mary,
I am no longer searching for a partner, as I found her a few months ago. We really hit it off on our first face to face meeting after writing and calling for a few months. We did meet through Green Singles, and screening from the beginning for the right people you want to associate with is so important, and you do this beautifully. I continue encouraging others to use a networking site that narrows the field to those fitting their criteria for happiness, rather than throwing themselves out into the expansive universe of some online networks. Thanks for being there and allowing me the opportunity to meet the woman I am meant to be with.
|12/20/2010 - thank you for creating a site that attracts intelligent people of integrity!|
|December 20th, 2010|
|Mightymoose & Forest Care|
Dear Mary & Alan,
A bit of an overdue letter to thank you for creating a site that attracts intelligent people of integrity! After a few months of exchanges with some really fine human beings, I met my husband on your site on June 1, 2008.
Forest Care smiled at Mightymoose, and when I read his profile I realized he was in fact looking for me! In spite of great distance and separate countries, we managed to spend regular time together. We found immediately we are so fabulously compatible and in sync on every level, it is the most natural relationship we've ever had. We feel we have been together before and have found each other again.
Although it wasn't without courage and faith, it was surprisingly obvious and easy to leave my country to be with him. That has been one of the best decisions of my life. We married on November 7, 2009, and are happily moving into our second year as husband and wife. Life is better.
My Forest Care is a private sort, so I will attach a photo of our wedding day in keeping with that. We got married in a beautiful grove between two giant sugar pines on our land in the Sierras. A perfect day. Thank you for being the vehicle that brought us together.
|12/11/2010 - Thank you|
|December 11th, 2010|
Thank you for this wonderful and magical site. Love and Blessings, Meg
|12/7/2010 - I met someone through Green Singles|
|December 7th, 2010|
I would never have thought in a million years that this would actually happen. I went on as a total skeptic and had only planned to be online just briefly for kicks.
Thank You! Judy
|11/21/2010 - please except my thanks|
|November 21st, 2010|
Thanks Alan and Mary,
I have found a wonderful person and please except my thanks for your site. I will not be needing it anymore.
You have a very special service.
Best regards, Don
|11/17/2010 - a super story of success|
|November 17th, 2010|
This is a super story of success on this Green Singles. On October 24 the most wonderful woman in the world viewed my profile so I emailed her. I was about to get off the site because I was ready to quit looking for my partner and go it alone, and as it turns out she was leaving the site doing the same thing.
Well, we emailed for two days and then on the fourth day I called her. We talked for 38 hours over the next six days. That brings us to ten days of open honest communication without all the pretence a couple runs into dating over time. On the eleventh day I drove to Denver where she lived and on the twelfth day we had known each other we got married.
We have based our marriage on total truth, total communication, and unconditional love. I have the miracle in my life and her name is Cindy. I cannot tell you all the likes and dislikes we have in common as they are almost in total. This woman has made me the happiest man in the world and has become my reason for living. On another I will never gaze, as I have my eyes and heart full with love for the woman I call my best friend and wife.
So somewhere out there is the just right person, and you will click with this person instantly. A relationship requires work on both partners part and my wife and I will put in that work in for the rest of our lives together. All I can say is "Thank you God for this woman." YES.
My wife and I are going to close our accounts but first we want to make sure our story is posted. I am rezdoc and she is veggie girl. Thanks, Rezdoc
|11/15/2010 - I found love through Greensingles.|
|November 15th, 2010|
I found love through Greensingles. Thanks for being a singles site that attracts people that are awake and aware of the important things!
|10/29/2010 - an attraction right from the beginning|
|October 29th, 2010|
Thank you for your site. I have someone in my life I met on Greensingles and we're growing a relationship. It was very important to both of us that we saw eye to eye on progressive matters and this site narrows that search. This is what's in common to both of us. The rest is unfolding and we both found an attraction right from the beginning.
|10/27/2010 - I love the user friendliness of the GreenSingles site.|
|October 27th, 2010|
Dear Alan and Mary,
I just wanted to take a moment to say how much I love the user friendliness of the GreenSingles site. I'm a project manager for a web design firm, so I am very particular about the look, feel and usability of websites. Your designers and programmers have done an amazing job. The alerts in my Yahoo mail are simple and friendly. The links on the site itself are clear and leave no question about what's behind them. I am so impressed. Not to mention that the quality of the people I've communicated with so far has been great.
Keep up the good work. Thank you so much.
|10/13/2010 - Mark and I just got married this July!|
|October 13th, 2010|
Hello Mary and Alan,
We have a personal success story for you!
Mark and I just got married this July, 2010! We met on greensingles 4 years ago, and had our beach wedding almost exactly 4 years to the day we met. We had not been signed up on greensingles for more than 3 weeks when I, Marie, saw Mark's profile. I was intrigued and was going to contact him, when Mark contacted me first...called me from Ireland where he was at an Aikido seminar...
Turns out we had lived in the SF Bay area for over 15 years--unbeknownst to us--and met in Tucson where we had individually moved to, about 4 years apart.
We were both yearning for the ocean and lush redwoods again, so we now divide our time between Tucson in the cooler months, and beat the wicked heat with a condo in the trees in Sonoma county. We are very happy and will go on our honeymoon to Hawaii in November.
We each found our kindred spirit on greensingles!!
Thank you for being great matchmakers,
Marie and Mark
|8/13/2010 - we are having a wonderful time.|
|August 13th, 2010|
My membership has expired and I do not wish to renew because I have met someone from this site and we are having a wonderful time.
My ONLY complaint about this site is that there are very few people from my area. I have recommended the site to others and hope that more people will take advantage of it. You certainly make the site very user friendly, even for some of us older people who may not be as tech savy.
I was lucky in that the one person from my hometown turned out to be someone I connected with.
With this site, I felt that these people would be a little more sensitive to the issues surrounding us at this time. That makes it a better place to search for a companion because we are probably leaning the same way in ideas. Thank You, cu8ber
|8/12/2010 - Our minds were compatible|
|August 12th, 2010|
I just wanted to share with folks the fact that i joined Greensingles in November of 2007; I began corresponding with Jim late that month and three weeks later invited him up here (5-6 hours away) to meet me and go to a Winter Solstice party. Since i already knew that our minds were compatible, from the online correspondence, all that remained was to be sure our physical presences liked each other-- and they did. We loved each other!
By Summer Solstice of 2008, Jim had moved all his belongings and joined me in northern California. Here we are over two years later, making plans for the rest of our lives.
I believe that meeting and getting acquainted online is the best way today to assure the kind of relationship that can last-- based on shared values, similar intellectual makeup, knowledge of each other's personal history, etc. So much better than meeting a person whose physical persona blows you away at first, then you realize the whole person is not someone you can live with. And of all the sites i have seen or tried, Greensingles is the best, because it seems to select for sensitivity, awareness, intelligence, and a certain kind of lifestyle.
I had a friend who had been for months on match.com and nobody paid any attention to him. I got him to join Greensingles, and he has been having a great time ever since. No exaggeration... meeting online friends, making dates: his "problem" now is so many women, so little time!
Thank you, Greensingles, for your service. I will continue to recommend your site.
~Laura (aka "Dazed and Confused")
|8/2/2010 - Life feels truly blessed and wonderful!|
|August 2nd, 2010|
Hi Mary and Alan,
We're happy to report that we met the persons of our dreams through your service. We started dating on the fall equinox of 2008, became engaged on summer solstice 2009 and had a beautiful beach ceremony in Mexico on spring solstice 2010. We're now settling into life together and planning to build a retreat centre in the next couple of years. Life feels truly blessed and wonderful!
Thanks for providing an essential service.

|7/23/2010 - Follow your hearts|
|July 23rd, 2010|
Hi, I apologize for taking so long to write about our success. We met each other in December through your site. Although we lived 1282 miles apart, he came to visit me for a long weekend. Within 2 days of being together the question became, "Who is going to move where?" We decided that he would move here and in March the man of my dreams moved to New Mexico to be with me.
We have been supremely happy and know that this has been the best decision we've ever made. Follow your hearts, don't always listen to logic, and you get a beautiful, wonderful thing. Thank you so much for your site and the magic that it has sparked. Sincerely, Sarah and Colin
|6/25/2010 - I have made a new friend|
|June 25th, 2010|
Hi Mary and Alan,
I am very pleased with the service you offer. I have made a new friend in the process and we will be meeting soon. Another longer term relationship has re-emerged so I have withdrawn my ad as things get sorted out.
I am very impressed with your site and the flavour of openness, integrity and communication that you have set up. I just wanted to thank you for connecting such terrific, like-minded people. It's sounds to me that you love what you do. Well done. Perhaps we shall reconnect in the future. In the meantime, all the best !
With much thanks... Susan in Canada
|6/15/2010 - Thanks to Greensingles|
|June 15th, 2010|
...I have met a most wonderful man. I signed on about Jan 1 and met him Feb 2. We're in the process of moving in together. All is well. Thanks so much for everything.
|6/10/2010 - Here it is almost one year!|
|June 10th, 2010|
Our anniversary for meeting is June 22nd. Since we met we have traveled the west coast (where we both are from), grew organic foods together, created amazing dishes together, moved in together, campaigned for social justice together, threw a big party for Cousin Harry together, we have a shared interest in classical, blues, and rock music (four concerts together in one year), and now we are buying a home together. We were both loners who did not think we would find a soul mate since we are both different than the average. Thanks Alan and Mary!

|6/7/2010 - a second lease on life|
|June 7th, 2010|
THANK-YOU!!!!!! Alan and Mary,
Thank-you for giving me the opportunity to have a second lease on life. This e-mail, to you, is LONG over-due. I fell in love with a VERY special woman through Green Singles. Carolyn and I will be celebrating two (2) years together in September. I am a true advocate of your site and found it to be a breath of fresh-air just knowing that there are many like minded people out there. With that being said, my "inactive account" can officially be deleted. All the best to you and much success to all the members of Green Singles. According to Confucius: beauty comes out of lover's views.
In peace, Fred
|5/26/2010 - I met an incredible man on your website|
|May 26th, 2010|
Hello Green Singles!
I sincerely want to thank you for the kind of site you have created. In July of 2008 I met an incredible man on your website. He is everything I had been searching for in a partner with a few things thrown in I never knew I needed. We corresponded for 4 months and then finally met. Seven weeks later, on January 2, 2009 we eloped and have been blissfully married ever since. It has truly been a dream come true to be his wife and this July we will welcome our first child, Jack. I want to thank you for having an amazing site like this one where people who hold things like the environment, conservation, and an alternative lifestyle close to their hearts can find each other. This man was definitely not someone I would have ever met by going out to a bar!
So thank you, thank you so much for helping me find the man who in 60 years will definitely still be making my knees weak and a smile cross my face =)
Much love, Trisha and Kyle
|5/23/2010 - this has been a blessed gift|

(Follow-Up from 12/20/2009)
Hi Alan and Mary,
Thank you for your e-mail. I have met the most wonderful man via GreenSingles and we are now partners. We started corresponding last September and have been together ever since. We are both in our sixties, so this has been a blessed gift for both of us. We are both active in environmental concerns. I am fine with being deleted from your base now.
Thank you for your site. It led me to a wonderful man and partnership after being alone for so many years.
Sincerely, Lorna & Daniel
|5/19/2010 - I met a wonderful lady|
|May 19th, 2010|
Hello. I just wanted to thank you for your great web dating site! I met a wonderful lady and we've been dating for nearly 2 months. I've cancelled my subscription as a result.
Thank you, JM
|5/11/2010 - a great big thanks from two happy people|
|May 11th, 2010|
Thanks for the service you give to the alternative community. I met my true love on Green Singles. We are deeply happy, and both have similar passions for ecological simple off grid living, for being in nature, for dancing, spirit, community, joy, and for making the world a better place. When I read his creative description, I knew I'd found someone beyond my wildest imaginings, even though he was five hours away. Lots of traveling since then, but worth every mile, and soon we will be moving in together.
There is no other way than on the internet we could have made the delightful discovery of knowing each other. And being on a site that starts out with green expectations makes for an easier choice, as well as knowing that we were both looking for a long-term relationship. So for making more love on this planet a great big thanks from two happy people who invariably spread the word about you whenever asked, well, how did you meet?
|5/1/2010 - met some great people here|
|May 1st, 2010|
Thank you so very much for your service, met some great people here, really important service you have created, and I have been recommending it to others often.

|4/1/2010 - You have forever created untold blessings for us.|
|April 1st, 2010|
Hi, Alan and Mary!
After 12+ years (starting with the snail mail days), meeting some now best friends and staying intermittently tuned to G.S. through 4 moves and all the changes, wanted you to know that when someone from my state joined 13 months ago and I just wrote to welcome and encourage him about Green Singles (I wasn't looking for a relationship), we met after 5 months of email and phone, fell in love and I am retiring, selling my house in the city and moving 350 miles north to a sweet little house on a dirt road. We will grow some food, build a prairie and walking trails, breathe clean air and grow old(er) together- we're both 67! Thanks for your concept and dedication. I (we) never thought this could happen! I heard something beautiful today about being old. "The hills are old, too, and they are still green." Thank you from 2 old "greenies," from the bottom of our hearts! You have forever created untold blessings for us.
KD and Ed

Thanks for letting me know... I actually am in a very beautiful relationship thanks to you guys! I thought I'd wait til we hit one year to actually let you know... do you like people to share their "success" stories at any particular time? So yes, it's okay to go "inactive" on my account.
Thanks again, Tracy
|3/7/2010 - we're eternally grateful|
|March 7th, 2010|
I think I can speak for both of us when I say that we're eternally grateful to GreenSingles for hooking us up. We couldn't possibly be happier or more compatible (we were practicing the Cha Cha today). Rae Ellen will be sending you a more eloquent, and complete email with photo, soon.

|February 22nd, 2010|
Your website helped me find a very special person, Mary Ann, and our connection is terrific. It is unclear how things will progress due to relocation issues, but for now I have no need to search for anyone else. Thanks for your help, and if things change I will sign up again.
Best Regards, Pat
|2/2/2010 - Nothing short of incredible.|

Hello Green Singles,

|1/30/2010 - Thank you so much for introducing us!|
|January 30th, 2010|
Sorry for the delay in sending you our success story! We wanted to wait until our one-year anniversary to send it to you, but we were a bit busy celebrating the day to get it done.
Thank you so very much for providing such a wonderful web-service! Both Steven and I had tried other websites with no luck, but Green Singles starts the search with an excellent chance of success by having only people who have common thoughts on the environment. (One requirement down!)
Steven and I met through Green Singles in December 2008, just before Christmas and, after a few emails and phone calls, simply couldn't wait until returning from already-scheduled holiday travels to meet. What a wonderful first date - the start to a wonderful first year! Since then we have continued to learn and love together, sharing a deep connection that fascinates us daily.
Mary and Alan, thank you so much for introducing us!
~ Elizabeth C. and Steven B.
PS - I've attached a picture of us from a fantabulous camping trip we went on this past August. We were relaxing at the Silver Cascade in New Hampshire when a very nice lady came up to us and let us know that we ended up in a picture she took and would we like her to email it to us. (Of course!) And after a little cropping, the attached picture was the result.
|1/23/2010 - I am eternally grateful|
|January 23rd, 2010|
Dear Mary and Alan,
I am eternally grateful for the Green Singles that you have created. I met a wonderful person, Steven W. there and next month I am moving in with him. He lives in Chicago, I live in Toronto. It hasn't been easy to date, but what chance did we ever have to meet each other if it wasn't for you?
I am not therefore, reviewing my membership, unless this relationship goes broke. But Steven and I are very hopeful it won't. Be well and keep on going that terrific job that you do.
best wishes, Helen C.
|1/23/2010 - Married in June 2008|
|January 23rd, 2010|
Ron and I were married in June 2008 - we first met on Green Singles in November 2006 and began living together in March 2007. I was then living in upstate NY near Ithaca (where he had attended college) and he had been living in the Oklahoma/Arkansas area since 1993, having relocated there from Binghamton, NY. We had grown up virtually 10 miles apart, but had never met, even though we had several mutual acquaintances. Thanks to Green Singles which gave us the opportunity to meet - we instantly believed we were meant to be together, once again...
|1/13/2010 - Happy news, good news|
|January 13th, 2010|
Dears, Haskell and I, after writing letters and talking for hours on the phone, met in Virginia, where we each had relatives. After courting for several weeks, we agreed to be together for life and to be snowbirds... living in Ann Arbor, MI for the summer and fall, and living in Shreveport, LA in winter and spring! We have been very happy and busy settling in to both locales, and would like you to drop us from membership from your most excellent service. Gratefully yours, Amy B.
Dear Green Singles, Through your auspices, I've met Amy, a widow who lives in Shreveport, Louisiana. The likelihood of people from Louisiana and Michigan meeting through the internet is, it seems to me, not great. In our case, however, it happened. We are a committed couple, and we owe our happiness to Greensingles.com. Haskell R.

Hello, I am writing first and foremost to thank you for providing such a great service to people around the world. In November of 2007 I met the love of my life who used to live 16 hours away from me, on Green Singles and we have since moved in together and got married in Maui.
Best Regards, Evan S. and Kim C.
|12/20/2009 - We could not have met any other way|
|December 20th, 2009|
Hi Alan and Mary, I have actually met a wonderful man through GreenSingles and therefore have not been active on my account. I am so happy – we could not have met any other way as he and I live 5-hours drive apart.
Sincerely, Lorna K.

I met my match on Greensingles back in June. We have been living together since then in his off the grid home in Covelo, Ca. ever since. We are very grateful for having been able to find each other through Green Singles and we often tell folks about our success story and recommend Green Singles. Thanks so much! Blessings, Katja

|10/15/2009 - hope is as perennial as the grass|
|October 15th, 2009|
Dear Mary & Alan, I am delighted to be able to ask you to please remove my profile from GreenSingles. When I joined GreenSingles a year ago, I was very skeptical that I would find my match online -- after all, I had been searching for many years with no success. But hope is as perennial as the grass, and I went ahead and contacted the person whose profile most intrigued me the very same evening I signed up. We shared our first kiss on the winter solstice, and since then, my life has never been so beautiful! He is everything I always hoped for and never believed I would find. We are moving in together next month and look forward to a long and joyful life together. Thank you for bringing us together!

|10/13/2009 - they met on Green Singles|
|October 13th, 2009|
We were at a Green Networking Event and this guy we know from past events was there with this girl. We found out later they met on Green Singles and they both saw the ad in the Healthy Hippie. Then 2 other people I know one in Colorado and one in Baltimore recently broke up with their boyfriends and both used Green Singles and went on a couple of dates. Yay!!

|October 9th, 2009|
Dear Green Singles, Please remove my profile and take me off your program. You may however be interested to know that I am now one of your success stories. I have found a woman beyond my wildest dreams. The relationship is effortless and profoundly powerful.

BTW, I am sending lost souls looking to find a meaningful relationship to GS.

|9/13/2009 - found the man that I love|
|September 13th, 2009|
I am most fortunate to have found the man that I love and am planning a future with, through Green Singles, and would appreciate having my profile removed from the site. Thank you for providing an excellent service.
|8/30/2009 - he was the first one I sent a "smile" to|
|August 30th, 2009|
Thank you so much for giving me a chance to find my true love! Amazingly enough, on the very same day of my registration he was the first one I sent a "smile" to. Yesterday was our first year anniversary. Thanks again! Your site is the best. I am sure you'll forgive me if this is not the right place for expressing gratitude. Sincerely, Ana (aka free spirit 08)
|8/15/2009 - we feel like the luckiest people in the world|
|August 15th, 2009|
Hello Mary and Alan,
I recently received a notice from you reminding me that my membership will expire soon. I'm sorry to inform you will be losing my business, but I'm happy to tell you it is because thanks to your site I have met Tiffany and we feel like the luckiest people in the world. I live in California and she lives in Pennsylvania (at the moment) and though we'd like to believe someway somehow we could have met with a lot of help from fate, we both know it is because of greensingles that we are together now. It is almost spooky how meant for each other we are. Once the dust settles on our little off the grid farm on the coast of Cali after Tiffany moves out, we will write you again, if you like, to tell you more about our story and your role in it.
|8/13/2009 - married this summer|
|August 13th, 2009|
Diqui and I met on 9/15/06 through Green Singles. It had been recommended to her by a friend who had found a mate. We had been in the same running club here in town, but had never met before. We moved in together in February, 2008, and were married this summer. Diqui was a good sport when we had a rat invasion from the rotting, failed compost pile. We still haven't made good compost but are working on it!
Thank you for your site; without it we would not be together. Go Green!
|4/10/2009 - We Met in December and Now Have Been Happily Dating|
|April 10th, 2009|
Thank you GreenSingles! We are very grateful to your site for helping us find our true love! We meet in December and now have been happily dating for about two months. We are already thinking about the possibility of marriage! We will keep you updating! Again thank you so much!

|3/3/2008- GreenSingles Bliss for Both Of Us Ever Since|
|March 3rd, 2008|
I met a really swell fellow through the site last spring and it has been GreenSingles bliss for both of us ever since. Great site, have sent many friends your way. Keep up the good work.
|3/2/2008 - I am singing the praises of GreenSingles|
|March 2nd, 2008|
I just cancelled my membership to GreenSingles. I'd like to say Thank You! to GreenSingles for helping me to find the love of my life! I am hopelessly and eternally in love with a real man who was previously only a figment of my imagination. Stephen and I have found each other after a lifetime of searching for the unconditional love and acceptance we only glimpsed in our dreams. We compliment and complete each other in temperament and humor. I never imagined I could find someone so perfect for me this late in my life (I'm 49). It has only been 51 days -- we are both still in awe of the whole process -- but we know that our search is over.
As we embark on our future together, joyfully exploring the unknown while cherishing the familiar, we will never forget how we met. I am singing the praises of GreenSingles to anyone who cares to listen! Thank you!!
|2/26/2008 - I Have Not Felt Another Person So Close and Loved|
|February 26th, 2008|
Magic is everywhere and your site was its means to happen to us - through space and time, out of the blue, only as Santa can do it. We are on both ends of the world but I have not felt another person so close and loved so dearly and truly. I feel it every moment and I feel it is growing, and it doesn't matter when it started. All we have is Today. No destination, just the journey of Each day. Today we love each other, today it is a 'Success story', it is Happiness and it is all and only up to us to keep it, up to us to have more and more of it, up to us to Enjoy it all. And the best is yet to come... Magic never ends. Namaste!
|2/22/2008 - We Have Created A Great Relationship|
|February 22nd, 2008|
Thank you for making GreenSingles for people like me! As luck, fate, angels, or whatever would have it, I met someone within the first couple of weeks I was a member - he was also a member- and we have created a great relationship which appears to be "The One." I would like to hide my profile and have it revert to a free membership for the immediate future. I will hide my profile and trust the world of automatic deadlines to take care of reverting the membership to a free one. Thanks So Much!
|2/21/2008 - We Came From Totally Different Worlds, But Connected On Your Site|
|February 21st, 2008|
Please remove me from your site. Thank you first! I found the love of my life on your site. I don't believe that I could have found her on any other site. We came from totally different worlds, but connected on your site. Thanks!
|1/14/2008 - Happy Story!|
|February 14th, 2008|
We met thru GreenSingles last October (when I took you advice and sent smiles out to everyone who looked interesting, not waiting to be contacted first!). After initial correspondence, turns out we have a dear friend in common, who vouched for both of us as being really who we said we were in our profiles. That led to several months of lengthy emails, sharing of cd's and cookies by snail mail, and finally meeting for a weekend at a midway point in Arkansas (I am in Mississippi) at a beautiful state park in Jan. That went so well that Dave came to my place for a long weekend, which cemented our relationship.
We have the same core values and spirituality, and sense of humor. We challenge each other to live ever more "Green" lifestyles, and consider ourselves a couple now and are planning several more visits (carpooling with friends, so as to leave a smaller carbon footprint) and combining work and pleasure to justify the travel. Though neither of us can relocate at the moment, it doesn't matter - we are delighted to be a part of each other's lives, and look forward to how things will unfold.
Though it turned out we had common friends, living in different states we would never have met were it not for GreenSingles. We tell everyone about your wonderful service. What a joy to be with another vegetarian, btw, living in Mississippi, the land of "big meat." Dave and I look forward to cherishing our times together and apart, and to dedicating our energies for the healing and happiness of all sentient beings, including you too! Thank you!
Peace, Nan ("Organic Farmer in Land of Monsanto")
|2/12/2008 - First and Only Person I Contacted Turned Out to be "A Perfect Fit"|
|February 12th, 2008|
I have been very lucky and found the most wonderful man on your web site. I was not going to use the internet, but found your ad in the Co-op America Quarterly and it was so different and encouraging. The first and only person I contacted turned out to be "a perfect fit" and we are happily making long-term plans. You may cancel my membership. You are providing a great service by helping people to find someone like-minded. Thank you very much!
|2/2/2008 - Our First Date Was Wonderful and We Fell Deeper In Love|
|February 2nd, 2008|
I started writing Michael the same day I applied for a transfer within my company. He lived within 40 miles of where I would be transferring. We wrote and talked on the phone for the two months I was still in my home state. Our first date was wonderful and we fell deeper in love, cementing what had been formed in long distance communication. We have been together for six months now and got married a week ago. We were soulmates and meant to be together and I thank GreenSingles for allowing us to meet. Looking forward to a lifetime of love and laughter with my best friend
Serena and Michael
|12/19/2007 - We Both Realize That Your Site Made it Possible For Us To Meet|
|December 19th, 2007|
It is probably no revelation that many people search through your site for their matches in the evening hours. One particular evening, discouraged by the lack of available, ethical, vegan, compassionate and environmentally-aware singles in my area, I decided to discard the idea of geographical proximity and type in all the characteristics that I hoped for in a mate: vegan, in my generation, someone who has a child and who wants another child in their lives and so on.
My match appeared and he lives in New York. I live in North Carolina. I took a chance and sent a smile. After two and a half months of nearly nightly phone calls that lasted 2-3 hours each and hundreds of text messages between the two of us, this past weekend I finally met "BenNYart" in person. I had the strange sensation of meeting someone for the first time but with whom I already felt deeply connected - as if we had known and cared for each other for much longer; someone I share quirks and values with. We both decided after this weekend together that we were very happy and that we would delete our accounts immediately. We don't know yet what the future holds for us but it looks promising and we both realize that your site made it possible for us to meet. Thank you for helping us find each other ~
|12/3/2007 - Miracles do happen|
|December 3rd, 2007|
|Dinny Aka Artseer and Pan|
I heard about you from an acquaintance who had met her match on GreenSingles at age 67, and moved from Maine to Vermont two years ago to marry. I had been on several other dating sites and was discouraged and ready to quit looking. Little did I realize that in a short while after signing on I would meet my soulmate on GreenSingles at age 64, that he would be across the country in Seattle and that our phone conversations would be so wonderfully connected that I would fly out to meet him after just three weeks of 4 hour phone calls. We exchanged a couple more visits before he moved to Vermont to live with me. We are delighted and amazed at our good fortune in finding each other, and full of gratitude to GreenSingles for making this great joy possible. Miracles do happen, and my advice to all is not to give up, and to get really clear about what matters. Thanks,
Dinny Aka Artseer and Pan
|12/1/2007 - There is No Way That Two Of Us Would Have Met and Fallen In Love|
|December 1st, 2007|
Wrensong and Dunewalker thank you for making our relationship possible. Without your outstanding site there is no way that the two of us would have met and fallen in love. One in Missouri and one in Nebraska, almost 450 miles apart. We exchanged over 50 pages of email and a number of phone calls before we actually saw each other. By our second meeting (after 7 weeks) we knew that we had found the person we were longing for all this time. Thanks again for making it possible for us to meet.
|11/28/2007 - He Looked Me in The Eyes, Leaned Over and Softly Kissed Me|
|November 28th, 2007|
Dear Mary and Alan, I'm more than happy to inform you of another GreenSingles success story. This Kindhearted Gal met her Counting Crow. I was on the site for a few months and had many correspondences from interested parties in and around my location, as well as from far and beyond. I met with a few for a first date or two and although they were nice guys, the connection just wasn't there. So, I decided to take a chance and send a smile to a fellow whose profile kept grabbing my attention (Counting Crow). It wasn't just his inviting smile which pulled me in, but his words of expression in his writing. He responded sort of wearily with some concern about the fact that I was a little taller then himself - "You do realize I'm shorter then you, don't you?", "If this is an overlook, I understand". Well, it wasn't an overlook and I really didn't care.
We continued our correspondences with growing intrigue. As days turned to weeks, we began speaking on the phone about meeting for lunch or dinner perhaps. Finally a couple months from our first correspondence, we met. Well, we had planned to meet on an AMC (Appalachian Mountain Club) hike, but I couldn't find the carpool location and had no idea how to get to the hike's starting point. I gave him a call and he came up with a resolution to our predicament - meeting at a central location and going on our own hike. From the moment I saw his smiling face the attraction was apparent. I noticed too, that his grin continue to expand as the date drew on. We had a wonderful time on the hike and decided to extend our outing by going to a local restaurant for a bite to eat. It was nothing fancy, but the warmth between us was definitely permeating. When we finally returned to our vehicles he looked me in the eyes, leaned over and softly kissed me... "Wow", was both our reactions! We've been enjoying our time together thus far learning, living, loving and being truly grateful for our connection and the powers that brought us together. My Forever Love was found. Keep reaching for the stars! Warmly,
Lauren (Kindhearted Gal)
|11/16/2007 - I'm Thrilled With My New Man|
|November 16th, 2007|
I just wanted to tell you I sent a smile to a man the very first day I posted my profile on GreenSingles several month ago. Several days later he contacted me back and we've now established what looks like a very promising and beautiful relationship. We have agreed by way of commitment to each other to close our accounts, so that is what I am doing today. Thank you for establishing an internet dating site of such consciousness and integrity that it attracts members of the same quality. I'm thrilled with my new man.

|11/15/2007 - I Have Found The Perfect Woman|
|November 15th, 2007|
Hi -- I have just closed my account because I don't need you anymore. I have found the perfect woman -- thanks to you. And thank you for the great experience you have created for your clients. It's easy, it looks great, and it has everything I needed. I know there are many services like yours 'out there' and they're all a little different, but you seem to have all the right stuff and you're friendly too. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,
|11/4/2007 - I've Met The Most Wonderful Man On GreenSingles|
|November 4th, 2007|
I won't be renewing because I've met the most wonderful man on GreenSingles already! We met within a month of my joining -- after I had been "looking" for someone for several years. I was impressed with the many interesting people in my area that I found on your site. I like the way you run it, and I have referred several friends. I am happier than I've been in many years. Thank you!!...
|11/4/2007 - I Found A Very Good Man and Partner On GreenSingles|
|November 4th, 2007|
I want to very warmly thank you for connecting me, Ilanit, with B. I always appreciated your service, which is so caring of our planet and all its inhabitants, whose members are -- all I chatted with -- very fine people, and whose web-system has been so reliable and easy to use. AND, it worked, because it put B and I in contact, which I doubt would ever had happened without GreenSingles! We are very compatible indeed, and both of us "one of a kind", so not easy to find compatibility without an excellent service like GreenSingles. Please discontinue/erase my profile, because I found a very good man and partner. I attach photo. Thank You! Again,
Hey, Mary and Alan, Thanks to you folks, I'll no longer need your swell service. So, I'll let my membership lapse and keep my profile hidden. Best,
|10/25/2007 - I Have Met Someone Special Through Your Site|
|October 25th, 2007|
I am happy to report that I have met someone special through your site and we have been dating since June. We get along very well and it is such a pleasure for both of us to have met someone with similar interests and dietary preferences. Thank you for your service. I have posted your site details (the flyer from your site) at a local natural food market and I will continue to refer your site to those who are looking to meet someone. Blessings for continued success! Kind Regards,
|10/14/2007 - Physically, You Are Separated But Your Heart and Soul Are Not|
|October 14th, 2007|
I think it's time to close my account and thank you very much for your great service. It's true that we could have not met without you. He, 67. divorced, lives in California, and I, 59, divorced, live in Texas, a two thousand mile distance. We started emailing in February 2007 and decided to meet two months ago at his ranch in California. After that meeting or that one week stay, we found that we were destined to be for each other. One obstacle is the distance between Cali and Texas. We don't want to move. Each has his/her good reasons which are understandable by both. We, finally, agree to fly to each other every two or three months. I'm going to fly there again next week at his own expense just like last time. He's generous and kind-hearted. This time, I will stay for three weeks. Then sometime next February, he will fly over Texas to see me. We are working on the 2000 mile obstacle. Even if we cannot have a happy ending like other couples, we still can have each other and enjoy our company. This arrangement is perfect in our case and we decide that this is our only love and also our last love.
Thank you again for your good work which is very helpful and meaningful. Also, I would like to send my best wishes to those Green friends who are still seeking. Good luck to you all. Keep seeking and you'll find. A happy ending is not for everyone, but a good companion and a true soulmate can be found by him who himself is what he is looking for. Once you have found him or her, don't let the long distance get into your way. Physically, you are separated but your heart and your soul are not. That counts.
|9/13/2007 - We Got Married, Thanks to GreenSingles!|
|September 13th, 2007|
Hi -- I met Ian through GreenSingles in February of 2006, and I am happy to report that we just got married on September 1, 2007! He was living in Philadelphia and I was living in Virginia Beach at the time, so without your website, it could never have happened! Thank you, GreenSingles!

|9/12/2007 - No Wedding Bells Yet. But Yes, You Can Hide My Profile|
|September 12th, 2007|
No wedding bells yet. or photos. But yes, you can hide my profile. And thanks, again, for your service. The best for conscious folks. And should I become engaged, I'll send you that testimonial and photo.
|9/11/2007- I Have Met A Lovely Woman Thanks to Your Service|
|September 11th, 2007|
Just a quick note to let you know that I have met a lovely woman thanks to your service. Thank You! for the platform to connect with like minded souls.
|7/10/2007 - We clicked the first time we met|
|July 10th, 2007|
Just to let you know that I am deleting my account, prompted by you, because I have met someone through GreenSingles. Daniel lives in Maine, I in Philadelphia; he is 76, I am 65; he was divorced, I widowed. We clicked the first time we met in Philadelphia in January and have been seeing each other ever since. Neither of us is willing to move, so we have a house in the city (mine) and one in the country (his) - the best of two worlds. So far we are willing to travel back and forth though the distance (10 hours by car; cheap flights 4 hours from his house) is an obstacle of sorts. We are treating our new relationship and the complications of visits as a new adventure, one inspiring both of us. We feel amazingly young.
|5/12/2007 - The work you do ...changes people's lives !!!|
|May 12th, 2007|
You are such sweet people ! The work you do... changes people's lives !!! I am so happy GreenSingles... exists... as I have met so many beautiful people on your site! Peace within,
|4/29/2007 - I Have Met My Soul Mate|
|April 29th, 2007|
Yes, I have met my soul mate and soon will be making our commitment in just a few weeks. Please remove my profile from your site and thank you for your assistance. Sincerely,
|4/23/2007 - Your site has a markedly different and superior group of users.|
|April 23rd, 2007|
I just wanted to thank you for your site. I do recall when you were a newsletter! Your website is clear and easy to use. It gives a thoughtful and useful way to join or to participate in stages. For those new to the world of online dating, they won't know how lucky they are if your site is their introduction! Your site has a markedly different and superior group of users. Who knows if it is too late for the planet - but for online dating - you arrived just in time! Thank you.
|3/29/2007 - Our Relationship, Feels Like A Dream Come True|
|March 29th, 2007|
Hi GreenSingles "Thank you GreenSingles for helping Kristin and I connect. Though our relationship is new, I have faith that we will have a long and loving partnership. This confidence is based on our shared values, lifestyle choices, and dreams. It feels wonderful to have a 'Green' partner; someone who understands and values my efforts in support of environmental and social sustainability. We currently live in different states, and without this service might not have found each other. It takes a lot of courage to buy a ticket and make a date with someone you've not met in person (Thanks Kristin!). Fortunately, the process of mutual exploration that starts with the profiles really does translate into a high probability of it working out in person. I am glad to have found someone who is available for the loving, committed, and close relationship I've been dreaming of. Kristin, and our relationship, feels like a dream come true."
"Internet dating doesn't feel like the most romantic way to meet a potential partner, but I am grateful that it exists and that it helped me connect to an incredibly beautiful, passionate, gentle man. Best wishes for all you out there who are currently seeking love. Have Faith."
|3/28/2007 - We Are Currently Planning Our Green Wedding|
|March 3rd, 2007|
I wrote to you about a year ago to tell you I'd found him. Told you I'd keep you posted. Well, after an amazing summer (2006) of growing things and selling our chemical-free produce at the local farmer's market, he proposed in our bean patch. We are currently planning our Green wedding and our second year of farmer's markets, and we have you to thank.
Darin and I just spent the evening in the garden, as we do almost every night. We have put up two Greenhouses this season and are working on getting a CSA started for our community. Just wanted to let you know we never would have met if it weren't for GreenSingles. Thank you again! - Wedding Date: Sept. 15, 2007
Deb and Darin
