Of all the dating sites for people with herpes in the world, Positive Singles is arguably the most established. Positive Singles Australia is a dating site for people with herpes of all kinds , but by allowing you to narrow your results you can only communicate people with the same STD as you (or any other you might be willing to accept). This Positive Singles review includes screenshots of the search features and more, so read on.
Here’s a screenshot showing the different parameters you can search. As you can see, not only are there options to filter by STD, but also location, physical appearance, type of relationship desired, religion, education, ethnicity and more. You can also search for keywords in their profiles (common interests?). A cool feature here is that you can also name and save your searches for future use.
However, this is the paid membership search feature. When you have a free account, you can only search by gender, age, and distance. You can’t even choose the STD you are searching for. This is just one of the several reasons I recommend the paid membership.
Worried about putting up your photo on an STD site? Naturally. On Positive Singles, you have the benefit of privacy settings. You can set your photos to be viewable by all other members, or to be viewable only by your favorites. You can also have more than one photo album. You have the ability to create “private albums” that can only be seen by people you choose. That way, some photos can be public and others require special access. This is a feature that only paid members get to take advantage of.
What some people on the site do is publish one or two public photos that are skewed, dark, or even from the back. Then when someone sends them a private album request, they can allow or deny the person to see them.
It’s a good idea to have at least one photo public to other members, since 1. they are generally in the same boat as you anyway and of course 2. you will get a lot more messages that way. It’s the same on pretty much any dating site: if you have no photo, people are likely to just skim over you in search results.
As the homepage for the site (above) declares, the site hosts 15,000 daily active members and 120,000 conversations per day. Having tried out both the free and paid account myself, we also found that there is a large active community. We were surprised to find many people who matched our criteria locally.
With 14 years of experience, we have created an easy process for you to get started. By just completing our 100% free profile placement you can start meeting thousands of people like you who are living with STD in Australia.
