Online dating platform Meet Positives has announced that their website is a safe and secure place where people with herpes and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) can connect with, and get support from, those who are living with similar conditions.
“Dating with herpes can be difficult and, at times, frightening. We understand the struggle of those who are suffering from STDs, which is why we created an online platform where they can freely express themselves and meet similar people who can truly accept their situation,” says Jack Lombardi, spokesperson at Meet Positives. Lombardi also states that their online algorithm is designed to match people with the same interests, and ensure that their advanced predictors generate long-lasting relationships.
“At the Meet Positives herpes dating site, you will get more than the traditional personal ads that typical dating apps offer. We pay attention to details because we want you to find a compatible match and give you a different but interesting online dating experience. This is just one of the main reasons why Meet Positives is the number one online dating site for positive singles. With our advanced compatibility dimensions, you will surely find the perfect match within a short period of time,” says Lombardi.
Meanwhile, according to the latest data from the CDC, there are approximately 20 million new viral infections every year, and the most common types of STDs in the U.S. are Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Hepatitis B, Genital Herpes, HIV, Syphilis, Trichomoniasis, and Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Statistics show that those infections incur at least US$16 billion in treatment and medication, and 50% of the infected population are people between the ages of 15-24. The driving factor behind these numbers is the fact that sexual activity occurs the most in this age bracket.
Lombardi says that, while it may seem daunting at first, STDs can be managed, and those affected can still enjoy a healthy and meaningful life. “Meet Positives exists to help you meet other interesting positive singles that understand your situation and are willing to accept you for who you truly are,” he said. In addition, he explains that their online service not only helps positives find true and long-term relationships, but also provides useful STD resources and herpes information so those who are infected will know how to handle their condition and live well with other positives. Furthermore, Lombardi affirms that their free online service is 100% secure, and it is compatible with most devices, including Android, iPhone, tablet, and desktop PC.
Lastly, Meet Positives is also a platform where people with herpes and other STDs can share their inspiring stories of physical, emotional, and psychological recovery. One member said, “Herpes is a sexually transmitted infection, or at least that is what I thought. My roommate used to have cold sores frequently and also often complained about his itchy genital area. I never took this seriously since we were in college and he was always wearing tight pants. It never crossed my mind that he was suffering from a sexually transmitted infection because we were still young, and I though STDs were ‘things’ for older people. One day as I was taking a shower, I noticed a lesion on my inner thigh near my testicles and I first thought it was a heat rash or an injury caused by friction since I was an active athlete. With time, the area got worse and I had to see a doctor. She asked me about my sex life and since I was not that active, she asked about my roommate and this is when it hit me that my friend might have infected me. I do not blame him because I should have told him to go get tested before I got infected. In short, what I am trying to say is that not everyone who has herpes is promiscuous; some get it from their partners who are unfaithful. Some get it from skin contact like me, and some are infected by people who got infected long time ago and were unaware of their status. The stereotype is not justified and it is good to get tested even without the symptoms.”
