Is positive singles a good dating site

A booming app industry in Silicon Valley means that new STI dating services pop up every few months, and a cursory Google search means that their marketing team, or their founder, or their intern, quickly discovers me. As time goes on and stigma lessens, there will be less of a demand for these services.

She wanted me to become a spokesperson, and when I refused, someone higher up in the food chain emailed me again. But then the same thing happened again with another STI dating site, and then another, and another. I don’t think any STI dating service is going to reinvent the wheel and be successful when so many have tried and failed in the past.

On the surface it is run like many of the other dating sites on the market.

However, you are required to state up front which STD you suffer from, so be prepared for that.

One of the first emails I received when I went viral way back in April 2015 was from a woman claiming to work for Positive (I say claiming because she wasn’t using a Positive Singles email address). I don’t want to endorse a product I would never personally use.

In a world where we are judged for having a sexually transmitted condition, telling a new partner about herpes means risking a rejection that plenty of herpes people would rather avoid. There is a market for these services, and I don’t want to dismiss the experiences of the people who use them. I don’t mean to knock the insecurities of people with herpes: I want to address the companies that profit off of them.

It’s time to talk about herpes dating websites and how much I hate them.

The family and friends of an individual with an STD can be very supportive as well.

They reinforce the impulse of scared, raw people to hate themselves and hide from the rest of the world.

Let’s face it a dating site like this would only work if you are prepared to be open and honest, just as you would expect the same from others.

The site is functional with plenty of options, more for paying members.

There is even a live online expert counsellor available.
