Meetpositives.com, the leading international dating platform for herpes and other positive singles, recently announced that they have refreshed their website’s design and given it a great new look. The new design is geared to make it even easier for those who want to find a safe place to discuss their problems. The site allows members to be upfront about what they are living with without needing to ‘have the talk’ with someone they are romantically involved with.
Jack Lombardi, CEO of MeetPostives.com, says, “After listening to our members, we’ve redesigned the platform from the ground up to make it easier to use. We’re excited about the new look and hope that many more will find the courage to reach out in a safe place without the fear of being rejected because of a past mistake or indiscretion which left them with a permanent STI/STD. Everyone deserves to be free to love and enjoy an intimate relationship, and our platform helps make that possible for anyone who has tested positive. We can’t guarantee you’ll find the love of your life, but we believe our connections can help you generate long-lasting relationships, not just matching interests or selecting via a like-the-look swipe.”
Across the globe, nearly half of all people will be or have already been infected with an STI/STD. Telling family and friends is difficult enough, but sometimes necessary to fend off their good intentions to set up blind dates. Through the platform, members can use the instant chat feature to write to others who know of the loneliness they may feel following the heartache of being rejected due to a past mistake. The new website’s ‘look and feel’ remains discreet, and is accessible from any internet-capable device, removing the need to have it permanently stored on their preferred device.
As the leading dating website for people with herpes, it also provides valuable resources for anyone who has just been diagnosed, especially if they have questions and no one to turn to who has the knowledge and kindness to help them cope. Lombardi continued, “Just because someone has tested positive for herpes, it does not mean that their social life has to be over. Our site is designed to be discreet but to also let people interact with others who share their diagnosis. We have kept that aspect as many of our members have fed back that they enjoy talking to others without worrying about having to tell them that they are positive. We are 100% anonymous and secure, and provide advice on staying safe online, so they don’t need to worry about their situation getting out.”
A 2017 CDC report highlighted double digit rises in key sexually transmitted diseases. While some of them may be curable, many, like herpes, are lifelong conditions. New herpes infections appear to be persistent, with nearly 3.0 million year on year, globally. For those dealing with a new diagnosis, Meet Positives also provides the latest information regarding a possible cure for herpes, as well as vaccination and treatment options.
Many people hope that a cure for herpes may be found soon. In the meantime, over 67% of the population under the age of 50 have HSV-1, and another 11% worldwide between the ages of 15 and 49 have HSV-2, according to the World Health Organization. Lombardi said, “Unfortunately, herpes is a lifelong condition. The rates in America are slightly lower than the global rage, and vaccinations may help prevent the spread of herpes. However, there are over 20 million new viral STD infections every year, according to the CDC. Those finding out for the first time they have an infection can use MeetPositives.com as a safe place to ask their questions and get the correct information.”
Digital Journal recently featured the MeetPositives.com August announcement of Version 3.0, which packed in many upgrades, most of which did not impact the end user’s experience but made improvements to match results in searches, greater usability, new security features, safer browsing, and so on. The platform is also available in Spanish, French, Dutch, and Danish. All in all, the feedback from members is that it provides a very different but interesting online dating experience.
Interested parties may contact Jack Lombardi, CEO of Meet Positives, to inquire further about the platform and their resources. Those who are active on social media can follow the Meet Positives Twitter platform for their latest news and announcements.
