H-Date is the world’s largest herpes and HPV-specific dating and support site, with more than 40,000 registered members from around the world. H-date is proud of the fact that many users who, after contracting herpes, thought their dating life was over, have been encouraged back to the dating scene with the support and help of H-Date (not to mention being able to access and get to know other Herpes singles from across the world). If you needed any more encouragement, users will also be excited to find out that the site is completely free to join and use (with no hidden costs) meaning it is the ideal partner site to one of the other broader, premium STD sites we have reviewed in this category.
Readers who may have checked out some of the premium sites in our listings for this category (such as Positive Singles, for example) may find the look and layout of this site a little primitive – but the real charm of this site is in its active membership rather than its looks. When joining the site, users create a profile that tells other users more about themselves and what they are looking for.
Profiles contain information on everything from body time and shape, to hobbies, interests, attitudes to sex, love and a good deal more besides, so it’s easy to get a feel for the ‘person behind the profile’. Users can include as many photos as they wish, which is great, too. What’s more, if you’re worried your profile doesn’t stand out enough, you can ask for your profile to become “featured”, bringing it to the top of search results – giving you a greater chance of getting a date through the site.
Another great thing about H-Date is that finding and chatting to other users is easy, too, making it simple to build relationships on the site. Users can quickly find profiles belonging to the kind of users they would be interested in talking to by using the site’s great search function – with more than 40,000 registered users, this is important! The search function allows users to search based on location and refine the results based on any or all of criteria above – helping them find someone who fits the bill perfectly.
Getting in touch with those members once you have found them is also easy, with users being able to take advantage of a number of different options. Members can use instant messaging to chat to other members in real time, send emails using the site’s internal email service and also send “winks” to let other users know you’re interested in them. When it comes to the community element of the site, users are also encouraged to get to know each other more collectively too, with the site hosting an active forum, which we’re sure users will love.
H-Date is a great site that offers users the opportunity to meet and get to know other herpes and HPV sufferers from around the world. As the site is free of charge to join, what are you waiting for?
