Online dating website profiles checked by people not machines equals quality

Every profile submitted to Datepositive is checked manually by a person and not by a machine.

Datepositive.net is the UK’s top HIV dating and Herpes dating website, and is committed to quality and customer service.

The procedure has helped our Datepositive become successful.  The focus on quality means that most people put an effort into writing a profile – so you’re not going to click on a profile in the search page and find that it is empty.

Datepositive has a mandatory number of characters that must be entered in the profile description field. I’d guess that 95 % of members make an effort and write a fair or good profile.

Occasionally we have profiles submitted that are full of random characters, and we take a pretty strong position on this kind of profile – they are deleted.

To be honest, I don’t understand why anyone would join a dating website and not bother to write a half-decent profile. What’s the point? Your profile page is designed to make you appear interesting – so if it’s empty or shows no effort you won’t receive any interest from other members.

Datepositive aims to attract genuine people who really want to connect with other people.  By encouraging people to write good profiles, we’re putting the needs of genuine members first.

I’d say that if a dating website is judged on the quality of its profiles, then we’re doing pretty well.

Checking profiles is also one of the many steps we take to protect your safety. Everything you see on the site has been approved by our team. And we monitor the Datepositive daily to deal with any issues.  If you have a complaint, feel like a profile looks fake, or have a problem with another member, send an email and we will respond the same day.

New site live

Datepositive has relaunched itself with a new, fresh website.

The site has done away with the heavy blue background colour and now orange on white.

The new site also includes a couple of new features for Premium members – a forum and who’s viewed my profile. You can find it at www.datepositive.net

Negative words spur us on

The website I’ve been helping with, Date Positive, has received excellent feedback from members.

The site was launched eight months ago and since then it’s been surprising and sometimes shocking to discover the level of predjudice people with STIs face on a day-to-day basis.

So it’s been incredibly heartening to receive positive feedback from some of our members: “You are doing a great job, keep up the good work. You guys are my heroes”. “What a great idea for getting this site up and running. I saw your piece in the Metro newspaper that I was reading on the bus. I couldn’t wait to get back home and have a look”. “I just wanted to say that this is an amazing site that you have come up with, thank you for giving me the opportunity to talk to other people with the same condition.” Continue reading
