Seattle's Social Group for People with Genital Herpes and HPV

Herpes and HPV Dating Sites

Seattle H Scene is a social group, and not a dating service. Although most of our members are single, Seattle H Scene welcomes anyone with Herpes or HPV, regardless of their relationship status. We’re mostly about making friends and meeting each other in person at social events and activities organized by regular members. Many members do end up dating people that they meet at Seattle H Scene events. For more information on Seattle H Scene’s local social events, please join the Seattle H Scene Yahoo Group

Many Seattle H Scene members also join Online Dating Services for People With Herpes and HPV. Below is a list of some of the most popular online dating services that specialize in helping people with STD’s find people to date. These are listed in no particular order. Seattle H Scene is not affiliated with any of these sites. We simply want to provide you with information so that you can decide what’s best for you.

MPWH.net Free basic membership
3 months for $25.00
7 months for $45.00
1 year for $69.00
Claims to be the one of the largest online HSV and/or HPV dating services. You can post a profile, and send a Flirt for free. If you want to initiate a private message to another member, you must first pay to upgrade your account. However, if a paid member sends you a message first, you can respond to that person for free. MPWH frequently reviews member profiles, message board posts, and sometimes personal correspondence between members – to prevent members from mentioning their local herpes social and support groups, local herpes social events, and other herpes or miscellaneous websites – that they determine to be in violation of their Terms of Service. For instance, just by mentioning this site – DatingWithHerpes.org – would violate MPWH’s Terms of Service. Because of MPWH’s unusually restrictive censorship practices, many people in the H community no longer use and no longer recommend MPWH.

Non-Herpes Online Dating Services

Many people with herpes have also had success dating on larger, non-H dating services. When posting personal ads on Non-H dating sites, some people choose to disclose their herpes status up front, while others prefer to wait until a relationship looks like it might become intimate before disclosing their herpes status. Having “the talk” is always easier if you have already established a friendship with a potential partner and feel that you can trust them with sensitive personal information. Click here for tips on telling someone that you have herpes.

When using non-Herpes dating services, some people place the numbers “437737″ in their ads or in their searches to find others with Herpes. “437737″ are the numbers on your telephone keypad that correspond with the letters in “HERPES”. It’s sort of a secret code that some people use. Of course, other singles just come out and say “Herpes” or “HSV+”, “HSV-1″ or “HSV-2″ in their ads. Still others choose not to disclose their herpes status to someone else until they think that the relationship might become intimate. It’s really up to you to decide what feels right for you.
