Meetpositives.com, a dating website that connects people with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), is pleased to announce that their online platform helps positive singles overcome the difficulty of finding intimate relationships due to their medical condition. They also highlight that the Meet Positives platform is a safe and secure place for positive singles to find emotional support, companionship, and even love.
Jack Lombardi, the dating site’s spokesperson, explains that Meet Positives offers an alternative to conventional dating sites, whose users often discriminate against people who have STDs. He explains that the platform was created to help impacted people regain a sense of normalcy by giving them the chance to connect with others who are also experiencing the same difficulties. “Our algorithm matches people who are living with the same conditions, by distance, and by their personal, saved criteria. Registered members enjoy searching through the profiles of positive singles who also want to date, share their stories, and learn more about their conditions on discussion forums,” says Lombardi.
According to the latest statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1 million STDs are acquired every day. In 2016 alone, WHO estimated 376 million new infections with 1 of 4 STIs: chlamydia (127 million), gonorrhea (87 million), syphilis (6.3 million), and trichomoniasis (156 million). More than 500 million people are living with genital HSV (herpes) infection and an estimated 300 million women have an HPV infection, the primary cause of cervical cancer. An estimated 240 million people are living with chronic hepatitis B globally, even though both HPV and hepatitis B infections are preventable with vaccination. Meanwhile, according to UNAIDS, there were approximately 36.9 million people worldwide living with HIV/AIDS in 2017. Of these, 1.8 million were children (<15 years old). An estimated 1.8 million individuals worldwide became newly infected with HIV in 2017—about 5,000 new infections per day. More STD-related news can be found on the Meet Positives Press Advantage page.
Meet Positives is also promoting self-care and STD prevention through education programs, but reminds the general public to not discriminate against people who are living with STDs. In fact, to help STD positive singles find fulfilling relationships, Meet Positives uses a set of unique parameters to successfully match compatible individuals. Their predictors are geared towards connecting people with the same interests as well as generating long-lasting companionships and romantic relationships. “At Meet Positives, we are not only interested in helping you find love, but also making it last long-term. For this reason, we also provide free advice and tips on how to build a strong relationship that will lead to happiness,” says Lombardi.
Furthermore, Meet Positives highlights that their online community is a safe and private place for positive singles to share their life experiences and inspiring stories. “Bringing up your medical condition is not an easy topic to discuss, but finding a community who understands your situation is a great place to start to overcome the fear of rejection,” says Lombardi. He also says that Meet Positives is a place to start deep and meaningful conversations with people who are patient and willing to listen.
A Meet Positives member, on one of the platforms’ discussion boards, says, “I know this statement is a bit confusing because every piece of advice you get will direct you to be positive. This is not the positivity I am talking about. I am talking about the infection. Though your body is infected, the infection should not get to your head. At first, I thought it was a cold sore and treated it like that until my girlfriend started having outbreaks in her genital area. Since we were in love, we went to see a doctor together and the results showed that she had HSV2. The doctor explained that the cold sore I had was herpes simplex virus 1 and, through oral sex, I had infected my girlfriend. I became a villain and she broke off our relationship. I got depressed because I thought I had ruined her life.”
The member continues, “As I was looking for information related to herpes, I came across a piece that explained that most people are infected without knowing and that herpes is an infection that can be managed and treated. I also learned that stress can trigger outbreaks. This is why I say that your mind should be negative though your body is positive. You should not let the infection affect your mind as this will only make the situation worse. Accept that you have the infection and move on and this will help in reducing the outbreaks to almost zero levels and let you get back to your normal.”
More information can be found on the website. Members can also use the site to anonymously order STD tests online. Furthermore, interested parties may connect with other positive individuals by joining Meet Positives for free. Meet Positives can be accessed on all types of devices and is available for both ios and Android users.
