The Scoop: More than 1 million people become infected with a sexually transmitted disease every day. However, that doesn’t make it any easier for positive singles to find a love interest who accepts both them and their condition. Luckily, there’s STD-Meet.com, an online dating platform with more than 1.5 million members who are upfront about their situations. Daters can feel vulnerable and ashamed when they know a serious disclosure conversation is on the horizon, and STD Meet proves it’s possible to find love even after a positive diagnosis.

According to the World Health Organization, more than 1 million people around the globe contract a sexually transmitted disease every day. That’s approximately 357 million new infections each year. While some STDs are curable, others aren’t — including herpes, Hepatitis B, HIV, and human papillomavirus (HPV). Once a person contracts any of those STDs, they can pass them on to their sexual partners.

Beyond the physical effects, living with an STD can also make dating difficult because you want to be upfront about the disease if you want to develop trust in a relationship. That leads many STD-positive daters to feel like they’ll never find love.

However, the fact that there are so many other positive singles means someone out there understands exactly how you feel and can accept you as you are. Not all online dating sites offer a judgment-free zone, but that’s why STD-Meet.com was created.

More than 1 million positive daters have used STD-Meet.com to find someone special.

With more than 1.5 million members — and counting — the site has remained one of the largest dating sites where singles who are managing an STD can find others who understand their reality. Signup is easy and free, and STD Meet gives positive singles the opportunity to regain their confidence and remember their value quickly.

“STD-Meet.com has a large community of daters of different ages, statuses, castes, and diseases. You can find the person you desire from our large pool of profiles,” said a spokesperson for STD-Meet.com. “Within our community, you can find a partner quickly and effectively — whether locally or internationally.”

Enhanced User Support Makes Dating Easier

One thing that sets STD Meet apart from other online dating sites, including those focused on STD-positive singles, is that it offers 24/7 customer service. This team supports users as they get back into the dating scene and understand the new realities of their situations.

Positive singles can even find a match from different regions on STD-Meet.com.

“People using the dating site tend to have an open mind about cultural and religious differences,” the spokesperson said. “They believe in quality, not identity. The hundreds of success stories are proving this. People with different STDs like herpes, HIV, and HPV are finding open-minded partners on our site.”

With hundreds of STD-positive sites on the web, it can be costly to figure out where to find the right singles. The best part about STD Meet is that it’s free.

STD-Meet.com makes member security a high priority and is working to make the site even safer.

“One of the most searched terms in Google is ‘free positive singles,’” the spokesperson said.

To register on STD-Meet.com, users simply fill out a form with name, gender, age, and ethnicity. Then, they can input their country, zip code, and height, as well as post a photograph of themselves. Once finished, they can start searching for people with whom they want to make a connection.

“Humans are social animals, they’re unable to live alone. Because of that, they need a partner to spend their lives with,” the site reads. “STD singles visit these sites to establish a new relationship and to get rid of their boring life. For some people, they are in the mode of entertainment and fun.”

The Site is Fun and Effective Thanks to Unique Features

STD Meet offers many unique and interesting features that users may not find on other dating sites with a similar focus. Members become part of an engaged, active community of positive singles who frequently post and respond on blogs, forums, and video channels. Users learn, most importantly, that they’re not alone.

Once users find someone who interests them, they can meet them in a personal chat room or comment publicly on their profiles. At any time, users have the option to make their profiles private and manage their privacy settings.

STD-Meet.com provides resources for positive singles who want to know more about the dating scene.

The site also offers ideas and help for going out on your first date, which may seem especially daunting to those managing a disease they find embarrassing. But there’s no need for embarrassment or worry when meeting other members from the site.

“STD-Meet.com has ‘Let’s Meet’ tool that helps locals find each other and get together,” said the spokesperson. “This special feature is part of why we are one of the most popular STD dating sites.”

With 12 years of experience helping positive singles find love and fun online, STD Meet is a place where users can turn what they thought was an unfortunate fate into an opportunity to build confidence and meet someone special.

“You can change your story and write your own destiny if you have the confidence in yourself,” the site reads. “STD-Meet.com is the right place to start building your confidence all over again and meet positive singles. You can find the right person for you.”

What’s New? STD Meet Has a Security System That Helps Ensure Safety

In 2019, STD-Meet.com is renewing its focus on reducing the number of scammers who may appear on the site. Fake profiles are a problem in the online dating industry, but it’s especially important to trust people with whom you’re sharing sensitive health information.

“To eliminate scammers once and for all, we are aiding international authorities to catch and prosecute these criminals to the fullest extent of the law,” the spokesperson said. “By doing so, we ensure these scammers won’t hurt and abuse those who trust them in the future. This includes sharing any account, IP, and proxy information we find.”

In fact, the STD Meet team is in the process of implementing what it calls “next-generation security software” to identify scammers.

“This will filter out criminals from our site so that your experience will be a positive one,” the spokesperson said.

One surefire way to tell if an online dater is who they claim to be is to arrange an in-person meeting with them. That’s why STD Meet plans to begin hosting events in the upcoming months.

“This is one of the biggest promotions in the history of STD-Meet.com. Our users with HIV will get a notification in the mail with a promotional link before the event. To make it private and secure, STD-Meet.com will only invite HIV-positive members,” the spokesperson said.

If users still feel a little shy, there’s no need to worry. The site’s customer service team is there to help you feel supported and ready for love.

“At STD-Meet.com, you’ll receive extensive dating services such as chatting, direct calls, a user-friendly interface, as well as ad-free pages,” according to a statement on the site. “Infected people may find the conversation a bit intimidating; the customer care at STD-Meet.com will guide you through the entire process and be with you to the end.”
