BBC - Mar 28 - Some sites, such as H-YPE or H-Date, are aimed specifically at people with the most common types of incurable STIs, such as herpes and HPV. Others, such as PositiveSingles - which has 30K members in the UK, accumulating 100K new members last year worldwide - and DatePositive, which has ~ 6K profiles, allow users to search for people with almost any sexually transmitted infection.The rise in these dating sites coincides with increasing rates of STIs. There was a 2% UK rise in new cases from 2010-2011, according to the Health Protection Agency's latest statistics. On most sites, users can write as much or as little about their condition as they like. As with any relationship, shared experiences can also lead to shared understanding.
