Herpes Dating Site Sees Rise In Romantic Connections
US based Meetpositives.com is pleased to share that their herpes dating community has continued to thrive despite the challenges of the pandemic. While many are still choosing to social distance where possible, the site has noted an uptick in online interactions as members reach out to one another.
“Many of us prefer to go on dates in locations outside,” says Meetpositives.com, “but this has not been as easy in the past few years due to Covid-19 and associated concerns. At Meetpositives.com, we were concerned that the need to isolate and social distance would drive a wedge between burgeoning online relationships since meeting up in person was now a more challenging process. Even with mandates coming down across the country, some of these challenges remain.”
However, the platform also says their members have proven to be more resilient. Despite the fact that they were separated for extended periods from friends and family, people around the world switched to digital platforms and online messaging tools in order to stay connected, and this trend was reflected on Meetpositives.com as well. Since the website itself was largely unaffected, members took the opportunity to reach out even more and establish new connections — or rekindle old ones. In the time since, many of these connections have grown much stronger, and the platform is excited to share that they believe more people are starting to meet in person as a result.
“Many are still being careful,” the platform points out. “Our community has always been a hub for education on viruses, transmissibility and so on due to their positive status, and this may have given them reason to be more cautious regarding Covid-19 as well. Whatever the case may be, they are all taking the precautions they feel are appropriate for their circumstances and going out to build their relationships in person.”
Since its inception, Meetpositives.com has always been a platform that allowed people who were positive with various types of STIs to pursue a romantic relationship once more, free of the stigma that tends to come with their positive status. As such, the platform now has a reputation for being an excellent dating site for herpes positive individuals, possibly due to the fact that this is one of the most common conditions affecting Americans today. Genital herpes is an STD caused by two types of viruses: herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). The CDC estimates that there were more than 570,000 new cases of individuals with genital herpes infections in a single year, and most adults are believed to carry at least one form of herpes, if not more (though they may not be symptomatic).
This means that there are far more people with herpes than most would expect, which ideally should correspond with a greater understanding of its various forms and what it means for those who are infected. Unfortunately, this is not the case, and many still fear sharing the news that they have herpes, even though modern medicine has made it an extremely manageable condition. Daily suppressive therapy, for instance, can lower an individual’s risk of spreading the virus to their partners. The issue is that it can be quite difficult to have this conversation with a potential partner.
On Meetpositives.com, this is no longer an issue. Members openly list their condition when they sign up, and they can tailor their search parameters to connect exclusively with others who have similar conditions. Furthermore, the site has a great deal of respect for every member’s privacy, so nothing is shared without their express permission, including their full name, precise location and so on.
Meetpositives.com states that their site is always ready to welcome new members who would like to get their romantic life back on track or simply wish to learn more about living with their condition from like-minded individuals. The platform offers many educational resources from experts and peers alike, and it is a great environment to seek fulfilling relationships in.
