Are you living with an STD? Is it hard to meet women that want to stay with you once they find out? Or, are you not telling women at all? If you are living with an STD, there are popular dating websites that cater to you and your needs. You can openly disclose which STD you have, and find women who are okay with that. One of the best dating websites for people living with STDs is Positive Singles. Seriously, I think this site is amazing, and they have done everything they can to make this dating site rock.
What Is Positive Singles All About?
It is a dating website for people living with STDs, but it is also a supportive community as well.
Like a regular dating site, you create a profile about yourself and fill out some questions about who you are looking for in an ideal partner. The twist is that along with the normal questions, such as hair color, age, location, and ethnicity, you also fill out which STD you have and which STD you would prefer a partner to have- or if you don’t care, you can simply click on the ‘no preference’.
This dating website goes beyond the normal questions, though. When you are inside, you can extend your answers to let other Positive Single members know more about you. For instance, you can talk about your first date idea, your hobbies and interests, your relationship history, job details, where you like to travel, whether you have pets, and a ton more. In short, if someone checks you out, they will know everything they need to know about you to make an informed decision.
Also, you can easily verify your photo, income, age, occupation and education. They allow a few different ways for you to verify this, including uploading to the site, sending a fax, or sending an email. Various information is required to verify each thing, including photo ID, banks statements, and other applicable materials. Simply go to ‘My Account’ and click on ‘verifications’. There you will get an option as to what you want to verify, and when you click on the appropriate section, you will get clear instructions on what you need to do. To be honest, if you verify yourself, and get the little icon that says you are verified, you are going to be much more attractive to the single women on the dating site. It is well worth taking a few minutes to do!
Going beyond the regular dating website stuff, there is a forum, chat room, and blog section. These features are busy! While they do act as a way to meet other positive singles, they also act as a way to offer support. It is like a community of like-minded people going through the same situations, and it extends much farther than dating and trying to find someone who is a perfect match. I think that this is what makes Positive Singles so frickin’ cool! It is like a dating website and a support community all in one place.
In fact, in the left-hand sidebar, there are a couple of links that lead to inspirational stories and treatment stories. These are stories from members of Positive Singles, and as of this review there are over 1800 stories in total! That’s insane. Plus, you have the ability to add your own story and inspire other people.
There is also a link to success stories. As of this review, there are over 1600 stories. In other words, Positive Singles works. The site has been around since 2001, and dating websites do not last that long unless they have something going for them.
Yeah, So You Have An STD!
I found Positive Singles listed as number 45 of the most bizarre websites according to CNET. But according to STD statistics, in the U.S. over 50 million adults have genital herpes, and over 776,000 are infected every year. Furthermore, there are almost 3 million new cases of chlamydia every year and over 14 million people acquiring Human papillomavirus (HPV) every year. In other words, a lot of people have an STD, so it is something that many people are dealing with as part of their everyday life.
In short, Positive Singles doesn’t sound weird to me. It sounds like a dating site where responsible people with an STD go to be open and honest and meet other people who are not as judgmental as some writers at CNET.
What Can You Do For Free On Positive Singles?
You can search for Positive Single members for free. The search is limited to who you are looking for in terms of gender, age, and location, but it produces some pretty massive results with just these 3 criteria.
Other things you can do for free include:
- Talk to a live support person
- Reply to emails or online chat
- Send greeting cards
- Send free winks
- Post and view first date ideas
- Post up to 26 photos
- Verify your age, income, photo, occupation, and education (this can really help you stand out among the crowd!)
- Access all STD stories and information
- Comment on forum, blogs, and even member’s profiles
Really, you can do a lot for free on Positive Singles, and if you have an STD, and want to meet other people, you might as well create a free profile. The site talks about having over 120 thousand conversations per day with their 15 thousand daily active members. I can attest to this. This is one of the busiest dating websites that I have been on. It really is an alive community full of people. And these people are smart, educated, and honest about themselves.
According to Alexa.com, there are almost as many women on the site as there are men, which is rare. I have done my share of dating website reviews, and men are almost always the more dominant participant, unless it is a millionaire dating site, where women tend to outnumber the men!
What Can You Do With A Membership On Positive Singles?
To me, if you are looking for a positive single to date, then you want a membership. It offers you more features to find someone and get to know them better.
These features include:
- Send emails
- Put in a response to others’ status or first date ideas (Not just view them)
- Check and see if members are reading your emails
- Get full mobile access
- Talk to a dating advisor by email or chat
- Use advanced search filters, such as what type of STD someone is living with, astrological sign, who is verified, and who is compatible with you.
- View the last time people have logged in
- Hide yourself in the search results
- Get listed at the top of searches, as well as highlighted
- Create a private photo album
- Quick exit button
- Much more.
It just makes sense to me that if you are looking to date, you would create a membership. You have more chance of finding someone, getting noticed, and communicating with them one-on-one.
Some features related to STDs worth talking about are:
– The Live Dating Advisor: This allows you to talk to someone anonymously about dating, or emotional or psychological issues. This is an excellent feature to have on an STD site.
– The Quick Exit Button: If you are using your computer in your home or in a dorm or anywhere else where other people could easily walk in and see what you are doing, then this feature allows you to quickly exit out of Positive Singles and avoid the questions, stares, or concerns. Let’s face it – there are some nosy people out there, and they tend to be our friends and family members. They don’t need to know what you are doing!
Prices are as follows:
- 1 month = $29.95
- 3 months = $59.95
- 6 months = $95.95
Note: All prices are in USD and all memberships renew automatically unless you cancel them before renewal.
Are You Single With An STD And Looking?
If you are, I highly recommend checking this dating site out. Positive Singles was made for people with an STD…any STD. I’ve noticed that some people talk about herpes dating websites, but this website is for anyone with any STD, including herpes, hepatitis, chlamydia, syphilis, gonorrhea, thrush, HIV, or HPV. And I noticed that they encourage you to contact them if your STD is not listed so that they can add it.
Check Out Positive Singles For Yourself
The support system is amazing, the chances of finding a date on the dating site are very good, and it will be well worth the time and effort.
