Meet Positives Herpes Dating, an online dating site, is looking to offer a second chance at dating for people with herpes. The site allows people living with herpes and other chronic sexually transmitted infections (STIs) to find other people in similar situations without fear of judgement and rejection. People with STIs often face challenges when it comes to dating, especially given the fact that many will fail to understand their condition.
“Dating with herpes can be difficult and, at times, frightening,” says the dating site. “Meeting others who suffer from the same condition offers you peace of mind. Our members understand you, understand your fears and are looking forward to feeling normal again. Don’t let HSV1 or HSV2—genital herpes—stop you from meeting someone special. It’s not your fault for being positive, you are still in control of your happiness. Meet other positives and never have the ‘talk’ again.”
The site is 100% anonymous, presenting users with an opportunity to learn more about their condition from others with similar experiences. It offers users access to all the latest information regarding possible cures, vaccination and treatment options along with herpes drug reviews from members, side effects and success stories. One can also meet others who understand what it may be like to live with herpes and are also looking to move on with their lives.
“A lot of people are surprised by how common herpes is,” Meet Positives says. “Over 40 million of people live with this draining yet common condition, but only a few know they are infected. In the United States of America, 1 in 5 people live with the disease. Genital herpes has become the most prevalent sexually transmitted infection in recent years. If you are living with herpes, you are not alone. 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.”
The site was built for positive individuals and has thousands of herpes singles who have made the website their sharing platform. Members contribute their stories as well as information on how to live a better, fuller life with the infection. Talking to uninfected people about the condition is difficult for most people with herpes, but Meet Positives makes it so they can meet those who understand them and are willing to listen with open minds. The site allows members to communicate with like-minded people who might benefit from their stories.
The site also has a list of all known symptoms of herpes. The virus does not usually show any symptoms, which is why it may be difficult for one to know if they are infected unless they are tested. When symptoms do appear, however, they usually take the form of mouth sores and genital sores. The most common symptoms of genital herpes include painful blisters on the penis, inner thigh, vulva, buttocks, anus and cervix, and one may also experience burning when urinating, difficulty urinating, pain near the genitals, itching and other issues.
The site has a number of stories from members who have managed to make the best of their situation and manage to continue to lead healthy, happy lives. “Last year, a few days before my birthday, I went to see a doctor for some uncomfortable pimples around my genital area,” says one member in their story. “On the day I was supposed to be celebrating, I received a call early morning from the doctor, and he told me that what I was suffering from was not all that serious because it could be managed with proper treatment. This was the first time I had heard about HSV2. The doctor tried to calm me down but I was over any counseling. However, I agreed to go to his office the next day. What got me worried is that I just turned 18 and had HSV2.”
The story continues, “The next day, I went to his office. After some explanation, I calmed down and began accepting the situation as it was. It took a few other visits, and I thank the doctor for being such a helpful professional in helping me cope with my infection. Word of advice: the infection is more in the mind than it is in your physical body. The faster you learn to accept yourself, the faster your body will learn to fight the virus.”
Those infected with herpes can continue to live their lives as they see fit, and Meet Positives considers it their privilege to help positive individuals do exactly that. More information regarding their work can be found on their website, and interested parties are welcome to reach out to Jack Lombardi of Meet Positives Herpes Dating to follow up on any further inquiries.
