Dating can be a daunting prospect for anyone, but more so to those living with chronic conditions. With the stigma surrounding sexually transmitted infections like Herpes, people living with such conditions may find it difficult to open up enough to connect with someone romantically, fearing the judgement that may come about as a result of ‘the talk.’
Meetpositives.com is a Herpes dating site that helps those living with herpes find supportive, empathetic partners who understand the disease and will offer no judgement or discrimination. The site offers the opportunity to meet others who suffer from the same condition, people that understand the stress of living with the condition. “Our members understand your situation and can help you feel normal again,” says Meet Positives.
Herpes is a viral infection caused by the herpes simplex virus. Infections are categorized based on which part of the body is infected. While the infection is contagious, the symptoms are often very mild, going unnoticed in many cases with some people never displaying any symptoms at all. The mild nature of the disease means that one may easily transmit the infection to their partner without knowing.
Herpes manifests periodically in episodes or outbreaks, the frequency of which varies greatly between individuals. Some show symptoms within days while others take months. The first outbreak is usually the most intense, with future outbreaks being milder. Later outbreaks are triggered by sex, menstruation, fatigue, general illness, stress, and can even occur randomly with no discernible cause.
Dating while infected with the virus can be very difficult, perhaps even frightening. However, meeting others who suffer from the same conditions offers such an individual peace of mind. Genital herpes shouldn’t stop anyone from meeting someone special, and Meet Positives exists to try and make sure that nobody ends up alone no matter what they might be suffering from. “It’s not your fault for being positive, you are still in control of your happiness. Meet positives and never have the talk again.”
Many people are unaware of just how common herpes is. Over 40 million people live with the condition, and the majority are completely unaware that they are infected. In the United States, one in five people live with the disease, with genital herpes being the most prevalent Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) in recent years. “If you are living with herpes, you are not alone,” Meet Positives assures its users. “There are many others like you, and even though there’s no cure for herpes, you can still live a happy and healthy life. For an infected person, it’s very important to find the right crowd. The community here is made of similar people who understand your situation and will not be quick to judge.”
Meet Positives was built for positives, and has thousands of herpes singles who have chosen to use the website as their sharing platform. Members regularly share their stories and swap information on how to live with the infection. Through online discussion forums and individual posts, members can read about the experiences of other people living with the disease and learn how others live with their diagnoses. This is a great resource for those looking for a better way to manage their situation and live a better, healthier life. ‘A problem shared is a problem solved,’ holds the age-old truism, and it holds true even in the case of a herpes infection. Talking about one’s condition can be frightening, but when speaking to someone who understands the condition and is sympathetic to one’s plight, it is easier to feel comfortable and overcome the fear and apprehension.
Those living with herpes who are also looking for a way to be around people who care, or who are seeking crucial information, about their condition are encouraged to contact Jack Lombardi of Meet Positives, or join their website. Rejection and judgement are things of the past with Meet Positives.
