    More and more people are becoming affected with a sexually transmitted disease (STD) of one form or another due in some part to the widespread popularity over the past several years of online dating sites and apps. Without singles disclosing their health status prior to dating, this creates a growing health concern for all actively dating singles.

    Fortunately, there is a dating website that provides a safe and welcoming environment for STD-positive singles. Founded in 2002 and with over 1,050,000 registered members, PositiveSingles.com is the largest global STD dating site and community for people living with HPV, HIV, herpes and other STDs. For over fourteen years, the website has been providing positive support and encouragement for people with an STD, as well as a safe environment for those individuals to meet and connect with other local singles.

    Based on data from the PositiveSingles.com website, the top twenty states represented in its membership are, in descending order of number of members:
