As the number of people who are positively infected with the conditions and diseases associated with stds, there has been a proportionally growing std dating community. These people want to live their life no different than those who are without the illnesses. There may be a slight difference in lifestyle due to the people needing to be on medical and/or homeopathic remedies. Life, Dating and Sex should not have to end just because a person becomes contaminated with a sex disease.
Newspapers, Bulletin Boards and Magazines are full of listings from folks from this high risk population seeking to get together with individuals who have such commonalities. There are camp-outs, cruises, holiday retreats, special event dinners, day trips, and so forth. In most ways, one who is not from this high risk std population would not only be surprised at the plethora of activities engaged in by this crowd, but the fact that many of those same folks would not look sick by appearance alone.
Even though a large sector of STD Dating happens on the Internet, many of these groups focus on engaging in face to face social outings. Several of these web groups put out lists of ongoing events for people with sexually transmitted diseases such as herpes, chlamydia, hiv and other stds to attend. This is not an isolated occurrence as one of these groups boasts planned activities in over 40 cities ranging from San Francisco, California, to Long Island, NY
Many of the events attract several hundred people. The people that show up appear as if if they were at any other type of large party or celebration. There is no degrading signs at these outings neither, as the organizers don’t put signs up in the location’s venue stating, “Meeting of the Miami hiv club’” Some of the events can even be dinner with 30 other std positive adults. Regardless of the itinerary, it is always nice for people who have to live with infections to have a built in support group and a chance to date others in the same circumstances.
