#3 Herpes Dating Site
STDFriends takes a different approach to STD dating and herpes dating by allowing you to contact others for friendship first much like facebook. While the dating aspect is still at the core of the experience, its harder to find someone on the site in your city due to the currently limited number of users. While this could change if the site becomes more popular, it suffers from the “chicken and egg” problem of not having enough users for others to want to sign up. You should give it a try if you’re curious or want a more “friendly” user experience.
- Easy communication with email and winks
- Lots of options to create your own content such as blogs and lists
- Custom Instant Messanger
- View the content others have created
- Quick and Easy Search
- User Forums and Guestbooks
A fun modern approach to the herpes dating website idea, STDfriends gets you right into the mix quickly with an easy sign up process and quick access to other users photos (though this may be seen as a drawback as described below) Once you are signed up its easy to find others profiles with the quick search by age, sex, gender and city. You can also search for “online only” members to start a quick chat. STDFriends tries hard to make it easy to communicate with its members and get the conversation going right away.
STDfriends.com has a total membership of about 40,000 with 100-200 new members joining each month. While this is a respectable number, it is hard to find someone with the same STD in the same city who is also an active member of the site. While this could grow overtime you’ll be waiting along time to hear from someone and we’ve found many emails to be “spammy” and not people showing genuine interest in meeting or dating.
You’ll notice first and foremost the STDfriends shows a list of random profiles with photographs the moment you enter the site. While this is a quick and easy way to discover users of the site, some might not feel comfortable with such a private part of their lives being on display for all to see. One can then search the profiles by sex, age, country, city and whether or not the user is online currently. Clicking on any photo gets you right to the users profile page where you can see a timeline of their actions and ways to share their profile on social media. Again this seems awkward for someone on a sensitive herpes dating website to want others to proclaim it to the world for them.
