 Increase Observed in the Number of Dating Sites for People With STDs

Dating websites cater to almost every section of the society and a new survey reveals that such websites for people with sexually transmitted diseases are rising in popularity.

According to New York Daily News, some of the more popular websites include STD Soulmates, STDMatch and Positive Singles which allows people with STDs to perform basic functions such as filtering potential dates by age, gender and location.

But another special menu also allows the user to specify if they are suffering from some of the most common sexually transmitted diseases such as herpes, HIV, HPV, hepatitis B, HIV, AIDS, syphilis and even thrush.

Says Steve Kasper, a consultant for the dating website Positive Singles, "It provides a particular service to people who otherwise assume their dating life is over. You're surrounded by people who understand you, who have been through what you're going through. It's not just about dating, it's a support group."
