Herpes Dating

Herpes Dating Websites

Herpes Dating does have some special considerations.  But if you’re just starting out, it might be helpful to start out by finding other people to date who already have herpes.  Fortunately, that’s not too hard.  Herpes is super common, and there are dating sites and online groups that cater to people just like you.  Below are some of the most popular herpes dating sites.  There are also some tips for how to find people who have herpes on some of the most popular regular dating sites.

Positive Singles

PositiveSingles.com (PS) is the largest online dating service for people with Herpes and other STDs. With tens of thousands of members, PositiveSingles is NOT exclusively for people with herpes. People with HPV, HSV-1, HSV-2, HIV, Hepatitis, and other STDs are served in the same searchable profile database, so you can select just to see profiles with HSV-1 and/or HSV-2 or HPV. PositiveSingles.com is one of the more expensive herpes dating services, but a lot of people sign up because there are many more profiles for people with herpes than any other site.  You can sign up for free and later decide if you want to pay to upgrade in order to email or reply to other members.

Hwerks.com is a community exclusively for people with Herpes (HSV-1, HSV-2)  and HPV. In addition to user profiles and dating, it has community features,  groups, blogs, forums, photos, local and national social group and event   listings, etc. They are supportive of local H social groups and social events.  They are one of the less expensive herpes dating sites, but with fewer profiles than PositiveSingles.

Secret Facebook H Dating Groups

There are many local, national and international Secret Facebook Groups for people with genital herpes (HSV-1, HSV-2) and HPV.  Some of these groups are specifically for people who are looking to date others in the general H community. There are groups for all types of interests, including LGBTQ and other segments. The problem with dating someone you meet via Facebook is that there is no *vetting* of any members, and if the relationship goes south, it’s possible that they may post something negative about you for others to see.  Always be careful about who you meet and make sure to protect your privacy online.
