Dating Site Offers Second Chance For Those Living With Herpes
Singles living with herpes have been turning to Meetpositives.com, a dating site for herpes, to find judgment-free relationships. Meetpositives is unique in that it is specifically designed with STD positive adults in mind. It provides a safe space where people living herpes and other chronic sexually transmitted infections can talk to and possibly meet others in similar situations without having to worry about the stigma they normally face. “Never have ‘the talk’ again” is Meetpositives’ motto, and the site has successfully created a place where people with STDs do not have to worry about revealing their status and being judged for it.
“Dating with herpes can be difficult and, at times, frightening,” says Meetpositives. “Meeting others who suffer from the same conditions offers you peace of mind. Our members understand you, understand your fears and look 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 positives and never have the talk again.”
Herpes is surprisingly common. Over 40 million people live with the condition but only a few know they are infected. In the United States, one in five people live with the disease, and genital herpes has become the most prevalent sexually transmitted infection in recent years. Meetpositives wants those living with herpes to be aware that they are not alone and that it is still possible to live a happy healthy life. Though the disease has no cure, it does not stop one from living their life to the fullest and it is still possible to find love and acceptance. The Meetpositives community is made up of people who understand what it is like to live with herpes and do not judge people for things they have little control over.
“A problem shared is a problem solved,” the herpes dating site says. “Talking about your condition with uninfected people can be a daunting experience if not frightening. When meeting people who understand you, it becomes easier to share your experience, ultimately allowing you to feel more comfortable. Well, you will feel more confident when you share your experience with like-minded people who will benefit from your story. Through online discussion forums and individual posts, members can read other positives’ stories and how they live with their diagnosis. This is a great way to find information that will help you manage your situation and live a better life.”
Most people who contracted an STD did nothing wrong and simply made a mistake while searching for love. What makes this even worse is the fact that many people who have contracted an incurable STD did so while in a relationship with a partner who either failed to reveal they had an STD or cheated, got infected and then infected their partner. Revealing one’s status can also be difficult and often results in the end of a relationship if the infected person fails to reveal it in time or the other partner reacts badly. With MeetPositives, both parties are fully aware of the other’s situation from the get go. One’s STD status becomes irrelevant when the other person is fully aware of it from the beginning.
Meetpositives is not only a dating site, it is also a place where people come to share their stories. “Herpes is not the end of the world,” says one member. “After receiving the news that I had herpes, I fell into depression and thought about my life, my boyfriend and my family. For some reason, I thought HSV2 was a matter of life and death but I was so wrong. The first lesson I learnt is that the people around you and how they react to the news is more important than your own reaction. Keep in mind that you still will be loved and you deserve to be loved. My sister and cousins were supportive enough to get me through the stage of accepting I have herpes. That part of my life is behind me but herpes came to my new life with me. You cannot tell that I am infected by just looking at me. You will have to get my blood and test it to believe that I am infected. This simply means that herpes is not the end of the world, and you can still go on with your life just like you are not infected only that you will need to be careful not to infect other people.”
