Meetpositives.com, a dating site for people living with STDs, has created a comfortable and safe space for STD dating in Australia. The site, with its guarantee that users will “Never have ‘The Talk’ again” places great emphasis on ensuring that its users feel comfortable seeking out romantic connections without fear of judgment.
Built for STD positive people, the site offers people with chronic STDs a second chance at dating. MeetPositives looks to help people feel normal in a relationship. It helps users avoid the embarrassment and rejection they often have to endure whenever they reveal their condition to a potential partner.
“Our members join because they want to find and date others who have experienced the same struggles,” the site says. “Our algorithm matches people who are living with the same condition(s), 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. “
Often, people with STDs feel quite isolated, but sexually transmitted infections are some of the most hidden epidemics—the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the US states that there are more than 20 million new viral infections every year in the United States alone. In Australia, STD transmission rates have seen a steady increase over the years, and chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis have seen a sharp increase in notification rates. STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections) are more common than most people think, and the number of new cases grows every year in many countries around the world, which means that one is never as alone as they think when it comes to an STD infection.
“At Meetpositives.com, we are not only interested in helping you find love, but also making it last long-term,” the site says. “For this reason, we provide free advice and tips on how to build 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.

Unlike conventional dating sites, Meet Positives uses a different approach to matching users. The site attempts to match people who are more likely to form long-lasting connections with one another. With MeetPositives’ compatibility dimensions, users are likely to find the perfect match within a short period of time, and they will each have access to more than the traditional personal ads. The site pays attention to every detail of every user’s profile to try and find them a compatible match, offering a different but interesting online dating experience.
The site features a number of stories from members, describing their experiences with various sexually transmitted infections. “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,” says one member who was diagnosed with HSV2 on their birthday. “This was the first time I heard about HSV2. To get the news that I was infected, and that I now carried an incurable infection, was too much for me to handle. 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 next day, I went to his office, and after some explanations, I calmed down and began accepting the situation as it was. It took a few more visits, and I thank the doctor for being so helpful and professional in assisting 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.”
