Chicago, Illinois –
Meetpositives.com would like to talk about the opportunities for romantic and platonic connections their platform offers. Meet Positives is considered the number one dating site for people living with certain conditions due to its status as a judgment free safe space for people with herpes and other incurable conditions. People have used the site to find love, make friends, share their stories or simply reassure themselves that they are not alone. With the large number of people on the herpes dating website, MeetPositives is evidence that contracting a chronic STI is not the end of one’s life and that it is far more common than many people think.
The platform says, “A lot of people are surprised by how common herpes is. 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. Meet Positives was built for positives and has thousands of herpes singles who have made this website their sharing platform. Members share their stories and information on how to live a better life with the infection. By joining you will enjoy a number of benefits.”
One of the main benefits a dating website for people with herpes offers is the opportunity to learn from others in a similar situation. Through online discussion forums and individual posts, members can read stories shared by other members and find information that could help them manage their situation and lead a better life. Uninfected people do not understand what it is like to live as an infected individual, and talking to them about the troubles an infected person faces can be very difficult. This is why spaces like MeetPositives.com are so important as they allow their users to feel more comfortable sharing their stories — knowing that they will not be judged and that their readers will benefit from their story.
The main issue faced by people living with herpes is how difficult dating can be. Dating is already difficult for most people, and being positive with an STI or STD makes it even more difficult, especially when it comes to revealing one’s status to a potential partner. MeetPositives makes it so that people living with herpes never have to have ‘the talk’ with potential partners again. Everyone who uses the site understands the trials faced by herpes-positive people and approaches each interaction with a judgment free, compassionate mindset.
“Just a few months ago, I had my first outbreak at the age of 22, and to say it was devastating is an understatement,” says one member. “At the time, I was visiting my grandmother and there was no way I could show her that I was in pain. The discomfort, the pain and confusion made everything worse and I could not help but lock myself in the guestroom and cry. My grandmother, being a retired counselor, approached me, and I explained everything. She took me to see her doctor and as I waited patiently for the results, I had nothing close to HSV2 in mind. The news broke me down further, but my grandma was there to take me through the pain and heartache. I know most people might be thinking that I was a promiscuous person at my age but the shocking truth is that I was a virgin till I was 22 and it is in this same year that I got infected. I confronted the guy who I had lost my virginity to but he said that I had got it from somewhere else and up to this day, I just can’t tell if he was the one who gave me HV2. Anyway, my grandmother extended my visit, and she counseled me through the acceptance stage, and I can look around and all I see is a beautiful life and a bright future ahead of me.”
