When you have Herpes, HIV/AIDS, or any other STD, it can feel like you are all alone in the world. Positive Singles is dedicated to providing the premier community for anonymous STD dating, friendship and support. Here you don’t have to worry about being rejected just because of something beyond your control. You can share your struggle with new friends, partners or potential spouses who are encountering the same fears. Here you will never feel lonely again!

Today, over 70 million persons are afflicted with STD’s in the U.S. alone, and an estimated 200-400 million worldwide.

The Positive Singles dating site is approximately 4 years old. The founding team’s vision is to build a community for people with STD’s, where they can find friendship, support, and love? When you are newly diagnosed, your whole world seems to have been turned upside down and inside out. There are so many questions that run through your mind: Did my partner know they were infected? Maybe yes, maybe no. Many HSV (Oral and Genital Herpes), HPV (Human Papilloma Virus), and HIV infected people have no visible symptoms. Individuals may not be aware of their infection or the risk of transmission to others and of their bodies developing complications.

Unfortunately, there are those who are fully aware of their condition and choose not to disclose. This is morally wrong, and in some cases, criminal. However, it happens more than we would like to think, and makes it even harder to accept that a chronic disease has been acquired through deception. How do you tell your family and your friends? Do you tell them at all? Will they look at you differently? Will they shun you completely?

Many people are afraid to reach out to the people whom they are closest to. You feel shame, embarrassment, fear, and anger. The stigma attached to people with infectious diseases suddenly becomes personal; the jokes aren’t so funny anymore. You are afraid of losing friendships and your family altogether. This fear can quickly become a reality due to a lack of education. So you retreat inside yourself, and try to overcome the overwhelming feelings that have suddenly taken over your life. Loneliness is a terrible feeling!

Who will want me now? Will I ever find love? How do I tell a potential partner?

These are very tough questions to answer. It is hard to find love in a world where no STD’s exist between partners, some people never find it, and it certainly doesn’t get any easier when you are diagnosed with an infectious disease.

Whether you choose to continue to date uninfected people is a matter of personal choice. If you do choose to do so, you are morally, and sometimes legally, bound to disclose your status. Do not ever take away the right of someone else to make a choice that might have life-long implications for him or her. Many infected people never had that choice, which makes the end results even more devastating. Having “The Talk” is never easy, and full of unknowns and probably even more questions.

Will they accept me? Will they keep my secret forever? Will they tell their friends and swear them to a secret that everyone might eventually be in on? What if we break up? Will they still keep my secret? What if they reject me? Will my secret become public
knowledge? Fears and loneliness can haunt you for a lifetime.

Should I limit myself to only positive partners? Being involved in Positive Singles makes some aspects of dating easier for people with STD’s. Your condition is known up-front, your partner can offer you support based upon their personal experiences. You don’t have the worry of infecting someone that you love. Positive Singles is a place where you can find friendships, support, and even love. You won’t have to worry about being rejected on the basis of your condition. No matter what kind of infectious disease you have, everyone has asked themselves the same questions you have asked yourself, had the same fears of disclosure, and of being alone.

On our site you can post a free profile, and send out free winks. You can become involved in the blog and forum sections, comment on a variety of subjects posted by members, and post your own topics. You can check the Daily Positive News for a variety of STD related subjects; send suggestions to our staff for improving the site.

If you upgrade to Gold Member Status, there are many additional options available to you, such as sending out an unlimited number of e mails and winks, see who has viewed your profile, do a variety of searches including new members, and initiate a private chat with other members.

We have many wonderful members willing to share their stories, give advice on how to make it through the hard times, and make you laugh. Some of us have overcome the issues, dealt with the hardships, emerged back into the light, and are helping others to follow in our footsteps. Some of us continue to struggle down that road of unknowns. Some of us have just begun the journey. We are a community willing to reach out to others and make this journey together. Won’t you join us? Your friends are here waiting for your emails. Free lifetime signup.
