Radio 4 programme explores HIV in women over 50

The increase in HIV amongst women was explored in women over 50 on Radio 4′s Women’s Hour last Monday.

The programme highlighted some big and important issues, such as lack familiarity with symptoms, not knowing you’ve been infected by a partner or former partner (and struggling with the consequental sense of betrayal), and financial security.

The number of women over 50 with HIV is increasing, and the health and financial implications are significant and a concern in many countries.

It’s very worthwhile taking time to listen to the programme which makes an interesting and moving discussion. As well, it prompts people – either female or male – to seriously consider seeing a financial planner to review budgets and pensiion provisions.

The programme can be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00vkpk8.

Bad online dating profiles

There’s one profile type that always prompts members to comment via email or in feedback forms.

It is the profile created by someone who fills the description box with the letter x. A whole series of them, so you get this: xxxxxxxxxxxx. More than a few, of course – they fill the whole space.

Members who have done searches and come across someone who seems to tick all the boxes are then disappointed when they click into the profile and discover a row of random characters.

It’s almost as bad as saying they will return to complete the profile. Only a bit worse, because the person can’t even be bothered to write that.

Here at the UK’s best HIV dating and Herpes dating website, we’ve had people email usand say these profiles are a waste of time.  They ask: why don’t we do something?

Now, admittedly, this doesn’t happen very often, but lately when a few members have filled the profile space with random letters, I have not even rejected the profiles. Instead, I’ve decided to delete them.

The few profiles a month like this are intriguing. Some such members have filled out all the other information with care, and sometimes even added an image or too.  So it’s unfortunate that they ran out of time, or just didn’t feel like completing the description.

But if our members aren’t happy with these profiles, and if they affect the quality of the site, we’re not going to publish them.

As always, if you need help with any aspect of your profile, let us know and we will be happy to help.
