Meet Positives was built to free the hearts of people living with an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) from the shame society casts upon them. Sadly, most people who have contracted an STD did nothing wrong and were simply trying to find love. Even worse, we have found that most people who have contracted an incurable STD were in a relationship with a partner who either didn’t disclose their STD or cheated and brought one home. So the decision to create a trusted platform for Positives was easy and the right thing to do.
It is all too common that couples get together and do not talk about their sexual health before becoming intimate. This typically puts them into a position where they feel like disclosing their condition is too late. When this situation happens, it is only a matter of time before their guilt starts to play a role in the destruction of the new relationship. The couple will have to face the truth about one of them having an STD but by the time this happens, both partners will have the disease and will most likely break up.
So why does this scenario keep happening? The stigma that comes with having a disease is to blame for some of the increase in STD transmission. So how can we help change the world? Simple, we offer a dating option for people who are positive and who are looking to move forward without additional stress.
Our catchphrase, “Never Have ‘the TALK’ Again,” is really the main reason why someone would want to find a trusted website to submit their profile to in hopes of finding someone like them. We understand how difficult dating can be for positive singles because we reached out to many who have an STD and we learned from their experiences.
Of course, there are cases where positives might have engaged in risky behavior, but that doesn’t mean they “had it coming to them” as some might suggest.
Our end goal is to offer a safe place for positives to learn from one another and if possible, meet someone who they can enjoy having a healthy relationship while living with an STD.
