Meetpositives.com, an online dating site for those living with herpes and other chronic STDs, would like to announce that they have added PayPal Checkout. The addition of PayPal Checkout is aimed at making the payment process as convenient as possible for the platform’s members.
The platform is built specifically for STD-positive people and offers them a second chance at dating. “Our goal is to help impacted people feel normal again in a relationship,” the site says. “MP helps positive singles avoid embarrassment and possible rejection after telling a potential mate about their condition. Our members join because they want to find and date others who have experienced the same struggles. Our algorithm matches people who are living with the same conditions, by distance and by their personal saved criteria. Registered members enjoy searching profiles of positive singles who also want to date, share their stories and learn more about their conditions on discussion forums.”
At Meet Positives, they understand what it can be like to have to keep a secret. STDs carry a heavy stigma, and people living with them often find it difficult to meet a sympathetic partner who does not treat them differently due to their condition. Notably, sexually transmitted infections are some of the most hidden epidemics and, according to the CDC, there are 200 million new infections every year. The most common are Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Hepatitis B, Genital Herpes, HIV, Syphilis, Trichomoniasis and Human Papillomavirus (HPV), and many of them are misunderstood and stigmatized, especially when it comes to dating.
These infections can be managed, however, and those living with said infections can live long, healthy lives. “If you are infected, you are not alone,” the site says. “The reason why Meet Positives exists is to ensure that you meet other interesting positive singles who understand your situation and are willing to spend their time with you. At Meet Positives, we are not only interested in helping you find love but also making it last long-term. For this reason, we provide free advice and tips on building a strong relationship that will lead to happiness. We have created a community where you can share all of your concerns and information that you feel will help others. From this community, you will also get something in return. You will receive important details on handling your condition and how to live well with other positives.”
The site has helped many people find the romantic connections they seek while also offering them a safe space in which to talk about their conditions and how their lives have been affected. According to the company, Meet Positives was built to, “free the hearts of people living with an STD,” from the shame and stigma they face in society. Most people who contract STIs do so not as a result of any wrongdoing on their part but as a result of trying to find love—and encountering an incredibly common infection along the way.
“I got herpes from my friend,” says one user of the site. “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 a 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.”
Another user shares that, “I decided to go to our family doctor and, after examinations and tests, it turned out I had HPV, and the doctor told me that ‘condyloma’ was just a fancy name for genital warts. I couldn’t believe what my boyfriend had put me through, so I left him. The doctor assured me that, with treatment, the warts could be managed, and I agreed to follow any prescribed medication from his clinic. Today, my life is as normal as it was before the infection, and I am looking forward to getting back to the dating world.”
There are many people living with STDs, and many of them are still looking to be loved. Meet Positives is an excellent resource for people with chronic STDs, and they are welcome to join the site and utilize all its resources whenever they wish.
