HIV positive singles face very difficult challenges when it comes to dating. They have to either date someone with HIV or disclose their HIV status. Disclosing to someone that’s HIV- is a terrifying task and finding someone else with HIV; well…the local bar isn’t having HIV singles night.
In recent years, HIV positive dating sites become the best and most effective way to meet other positive singles in the location. There is a vast number of HIV dating sites. Just Googling “HIV dating”, will yield many results. These are great places to for HIV positive singles that are looking for friends, lovers and companionship.
Here we list the top 4 tips for how to use positive dating sites correctly.
- Search as Broadly as Possible
For example, search the entire country instead of narrowing it to a state or city. The number of people with HIV in the USA is about 1 million. Consider the population of the country is 300 million. Not all of that 1 million is single and a good number of them are homeless or in a lower income class; so less likely to have a computer. The broader the search, the more results. If two people fall in love, is there anything more meaningful in life? Don’t let distance stop that.
- Don’t Search Profiles with Pictures Only
The biggest mistake people make on HIV dating sites is selecting to only view profiles with pictures. HIV is a private matter and many are not comfortable posting their picture. Get to know someone and then ask to see a picture. If there is no physical attraction, at least there is a new friendship, and with this disease, it never hurts to develop more friendships.
- Paying HIV Dating Sites offers More Opportunities
Any free dating site, HIV or not, is a breeding ground for scams. These scammers are not going to pay to scam people. It’s very frustrating chatting with someone for 15 minutes and getting excited about them, only to be led to a porn site. Free sites are loaded with these scams. The pay sites offer a scam free environment, a better quality site, less ads, and an overall more enjoyable experience.
All of these sites let people join and browse profiles for free; so members can test out the site.It’s only when a member wishes to email others that they charge.None of them have a contract and payments can be stopped at any time. Some sites charge as little as $4.99/month and some offer a free premium membership to anyone on disability.
Here is a quote from a paying member on one of the most popular HIV dating sites:
“I have been a member on free HIV dating websites and one thing I observed was I was not protected. As soon as I signed in I’d get 5-6 emails from attractive females and after doing a little research, I could see it was scammers trying to get me to pay them. I find that your website has grasped the problem. Thank for the service.”
Is meeting real people worth $20 – $30 a month? How much is spent going out to bars to meet people? And if someone is paying, aren’t they serious about meeting someone?
- Perfect Your Profile Completely
When a profile has 1 sentence it’s boring and it seems like the person doesn’t care. Nobody wants to talk to someone that’s boring and apathetic. A good profile will emphasize what’s great about the person, their dreams, what they’re looking for, what they like, etc. If a profile is not filled out, it is not going to get any attention.
