San Diego Herpes Dating Scene Heats Up, Fueled By Online Herpes Dating Site


San Diego herpes dating is just one of the many online herpes dating scenes growing in popularity across the country. The website powering this growth is, a website catering specifically to people who have herpes and other STD's. While Positive Singles is a worldwide website, this article focuses on dating with herpes in San Diego. Hundreds of people from the Los Angeles herpes dating scene also use the site, as well as herpes daters in Orange County.

Southern California Isn't Herpes Proof

Anyone newly diagnosed with herpes can find the news overwhelming at first. Part of the shock comes from the notion that their dating life is over. That's actually far from the truth. San Diego is a great place for dating for those without herpes, but it can also be a great dating environment for people who unfortunately ended up with HSV (herpes simplex virus). Approximately 1 in 6 people in the United States have genital herpes. Factor in the more prevalent and more socially accepted oral herpes (also known as cold sores and canker sores) and a whopping 90% of adults in the United States have "the herps". We can only loosely estimate that the numbers are about the same in California and San Diego for both genital and oral herpes. So if you have herpes, you're definitely not alone.

You Probably Already Have It

Due to the prevalence of herpes, it's no surprise that you (yes, YOU) might already have it. After all, most people who have herpes don't experience any symptoms, so they go on dating normally potentially passing it along to their partners. In other words, herpes spreads fast because most carriers don't even know they have it. The problem is partly due to the testing policies of most doctors, hospitals, and clinics nationwide. If you ask for STD testing, which many people do at least once a year, the test panel does not automatically include a herpes test. In most cases, you'll find that they do not test for herpes unless you ask for that test specifically. That said, you should specifically request testing for oral and genital herpes from your San Diego area doctor at least once a year.

San Diego Dating Scene

Fortunately San Diego has an excellent dating scene, so a herpes diagnosis is not the end of the world. You'll still live a long, normal life, you'll still have a healthy dating life, and you'll likely still go on to get married to the person of your dreams. The only downside is that your options might be a little more limited than they would have been otherwise. Positive Singles already has a lot of members in the San Diego area, so once you connect with them online, your next step is to set up some dates and enjoy all San Diego has to offer, just like a non-herpes dater would. Get out there and enjoy the restaurants lounges, beaches, bars, hiking trails, and anywhere else people might go on a date.  

Your Options on Positive Singles

To say this with a positive spin, herpes in San Diego has something for everyone. People with herpes come in all different sizes, shapes, ages, and colors. No matter what race you prefer to date, you'll find your preference on the website. The majority of herpes daters in San Diego are white men and women, although black men with herpes and Asian woman with herpes have been discovering the site more. Hispanic herpes dating is also growing in popularity.

Why Join a Herpes Dating Website?

Single people with herpes often have an urge to isolate themselves from the dating world altogether. That's not a reasonable action, and it's certainly not sustainable. You'll eventually want to get back into the dating scene. Positive Singles makes is possible for you to engage in online dating with other herpes members in the San Diego area, and the good thing is that the site is a very private and secure place for those who don't want to let their secret out. Among other great features, a free profile is an option that can get the job done, although like other dating sites, you get more features with their paid option.

If you're newly diagnosed with herpes or you've had it for years, stop wasting time and start dating again. One of the biggest reasons people join a herpes dating site is because they don't like having to explain their situation with potential non-herpes partners. Positive Singles allows San Diego herpes singles to date without having "the talk". So go ahead, find yourself a good person online. With any luck you'll soon find yourself on a great date walking hand and hand on Coronado Beach or bar hopping together through Gaslamp.
