Review of HerpesPassions.comRating 3/5 by Josh
Herpes Passions is an online community which allows members to make new friends and possibly find love on the internet. This herpes dating website is actually part of a larger network of dating sites with many niche interests included. Users are able to join multiple sites in the network to increase their chances of meeting new friends online, for $4.95 a month.
Users are made to go through a detailed sign-up process, where they are encouraged to fill in information for their personal profile, as well as provide information about their likes, dislikes and interests. Strangely, during the sign up process, users are only asked if they are HIV positive or negative, and does not mention anything about herpes. It is also not compulsory for users to answer the question. This might make it a chore to find another person who is in a similar situation as yourself, although you might find someone with a complementary personality.
The website comes in a ‘tab’ format, with multiple sections that are segregated through web tabs. This makes it rather easy to navigate to the exact part of the website you would like. A unique feature on this site is their instant messaging function, which lets you have a private chat with another member in real-time. Get to upload interesting or personal videos on their dedicated video gallery. There is also an online forum where members can engage in discussions about almost anything under the sun, but of course topics centering on herpes are included in addition to the others.
Number & Type of users
You can search according to your location and you’ll find a number of profiles, but it won’t be much. Many of the profiles appear to be genuine, with regular looking pictures that don’t look like stock pictures.
The great thing about HerpesPassions.com is that it’s free to use for all users. You can search for other members, chat with new people online in a fun and interactive chatroom, room up about STD related books and references, and even join in a discussion on their dedicated online forum. One thing you might notice is that the site is riddled with advertisement banners, most likely since the service is free. If you do not like advertisements in your online dating community experience, then this site might not be for you.
Should you join?
The website does have the potential to be a vibrant Herpes support and dating community, with many features available. While the number of members might not be much, with no price tag to all the features of HerpesPassions.com, it seems to be worth a try.
