Profile of the Month offer back at datepositive.net

Datepositive.net is bringing back Profile of the Month at the end of October.

Profile of the Month is where we pick two of the best written profiles and give them a free upgrade or a free extension of three months Premium membership.

This is a great win-win for the site and its members. It means the site has better profiles and you’ll enjoy using datepositive.net so much more, and two people get free upgrades. Couldn’t be easier!

www.datepostive.net is the UK’s largest HIV dating and herpes dating website and offers the lowest upgrade fees.

We are into good profiles – why they matter to you and the website

At datepositive.net we are into good profiles in a big way.

This is because good profiles make or break a dating site.

A good profile adds to the quality of a dating website and they can really make a difference on an HIV dating or herpes dating site.  It can be hard enough to meet people, and having an STD makes it harder.

So if you make an effort and write a half-decent profile, just describing what you are like and what you enjoy it does two things.  One, and most importantly, this profile will massively increase your chances of having success at datepositve.net.

Number two, good profiles maintain the quality of this, the largest UK STD dating site.  People join, have a look around and think “I like what I see here. It’s probably worth sticking around.”

If you make a bit of an effort, it encourages others to make a bit of an effort.  People who use the site end up having better chances of success. It becomes a win-win situation.

That’s what we want at this hiv dating and herpes dating website – winners and success all around.

So, sadly, If you fill your profile box with random characters or write something like “Just looking around”, we’re sorry, but your profile will be returned to you for a rewrite and after one week, removed from the site.

We don’t want to sound harsh, and we are here to help.  We have a whole section on the blog on dating website profile writing and we are also always here to help you with your profile at info@datepositive.net

Healthy diet when you have HIV

Q. I have HIV.  Are there any foods that I need to stay away from?  If so, which ones.  Also, is it OK drink alcohol with having HIV?

A. HIV positive people should try to follow general healthy living advice-a diet with plenty of fruit and veg, limited red meat and processed products, good consumption of fish and chicken. You should avoid uncooked food and risky unusual foods. Hydration is important and alcohol of course can be enjoyed within healthy drinking limits.  Two to three units of alcohol a day should be fine, and binge drinking should be avoided if possible.

Add a photo – even on a herpes dating or hiv dating website

This is a subject we have written about a lot in the past, but we think it is never something that’s written about enough.

We really, really want to encourage datepositive.net members to add a photo to their profile.

It makes a massive difference if you are serious about online dating.  Adding a photo to your profile will significantly increase the amount of success you can have with hiv dating or herpes dating at datepositive.net.

We know that people are very concerned about privacy, and hiv dating and herpes dating are very sensitive things. Privacy is the most important element and the normal behaviour on, for example, Facebook or any other social media site, does not exist at datepositive.net.  We know that 99% of our members are concerned about their privacy and rate it as their number one priority.

We have a solution. You can keep your photo private by choosing the correct site settings, and you do not have to reveal you photo to anyone until you have selected them as your favourite.

You may ask What difference does it make if people can’t see my photo if it is private.  It does make a difference.  It gives out a message that you take your membership on datepositive.net seriously and are committed to finding someone who is a friend, activity partner, a relationship, or what ever you are looking for.

That signal of commitment is the most important message you can give, it tells people that you will mostly likely get back to them, respond to their first contact, send a note, be interested.

If you’ve joined this STD dating website be sure to make the best use of it and create success for yourself.  Adding a photo is one big way of doing this.

If you have any questions or concerns, or are unsure about how to use the privacy settings, please get in touch (see the contact link, top menu) and we will be happy to help.

Can animal parasites give infections if I have HIV?

Q. I have read that some some animals can have parasites that might give me an infection because I have HIV.  What animals are included in this group and what kind of things should I look out for.  We have both a cat and a dog.  Can the animals be tested for any relevant parasites?

A. Animals may carry a host of infections and everyone needs to take reasonable precautions.  There is no need to carry out special testing and animals should be assessed generally to check they are reasonably healthy and their routine vaccinations are up to date.  Make sure they have treatment for fleas and be careful handling animals with loose bowels.

A. HIV positive people should wear gloves when handling litter trays for cats.  Animal faeces are particularly risky and hand washing rituals are important.  The pet should eat a healthy diet of cooked food and avoid the temptation to kiss the animal!  Cats and dogs may transmit Toxoplasmosis, Toxacara, cat scratch disease, hookworms, salmonella and a wide range of other infections.  Reptiles and exotic pets need to be avoided. – Dr. Laurence Gerlis
