With this in mind, Web Connections wasn't on my good side when I signed up, no matter how pretty their main page looked or enticed me to join.
I also had no idea it was an STD dating site until after I joined, and even then I had to look around during the profile creation phase to see that having an STD was an option to click on later on in the list.
Welcome to STDDating Canada.com, the largest, most active and dynamic STD community for singles with Herpes, HIV / AIDS, HPV and other STDs.
Every day thousands of people visit our community to meet people with Herpes, HIV and HPV for romance, dating, friendships, support, community, and to learn about STD medical treatments and information.
I've either used or reviewed each of these STD dating sites myself to see what they're about and to make sure they're actually free.
Built for STD victims by STD victims, MP (Meet Positives) is an alternative to dating and a second chance for people who live with a sexually transmitted disease.
STD Passions is completely free and has a host of features and benefits for their members to take advantage of.
That's great if you don't mind being in a community of folks who may or may not have an STD, but you may not feel comfortable sharing your picture or searching for other members if you aren't sure what their health status is, either.
Then you'll need to confirm your email address and wait for the moderators to approve your profile before you gain full access to the site. When I searched, I only found 49 people listed in my province and none at all in my city.
I'm not a fan of dating sites that ask for a first name or those that don't allow you peruse anything at all without having signed up, first.
It has a clean layout and lots of options (privacy groups, blogs, subscribing to another member's updates, photo albums with varied permissions), making it a favorite site on this list.
HMates offers one of the largest database of members amongst all of the STD dating sites, free or otherwise, with more than 15,000 members listed to date.
STD Community wants to offer its members a completely free dating site, with few (if any) ads.
I didn't see any when I visited, but the owner's statement on their About Us page states they may add a Donate button at some point to help with the costs of maintaining the site.
The issue is that there aren't a lot of folks who have signed up yet, and all of the hot-or-not pictures and blogs are available for all to see, regardless of whether or not you've signed up.
Many of the blogs are filled with spam, and the privacy options aren't up to snuff, which is why this site isn't the best on the list.
