British Columbia Herpes Dating, HPV Dating – Local Social and Support Groups

Note: These herpes (and usually HPV) groups are not run by HWerks.  They are run by awesome volunteers! While some groups may focus on support, others may be purely for social and dating.  Local groups are just another way to meet people in your area and are a great asset to the community!  Each group is different so please visit their website for more details.  See the Local Groups page to learn more or Join HWerks and start meeting people today!

Welcome to Vancouver H Friends

Our social group is for people with herpes (HSV1, HSV2) and HPV who live in Metro Vancouver (BC Canada). We get together for pub nights, brunches, dancing and other recreational activities in which members show an interest. Our membership is diverse in age and interests, and new members are always welcome!

We are not a dating site nor a support group, although we hope that in the context of our social activities we provide a supportive environment. Our message board and calendar are for postings related to introductions, upcoming events and our activities.

This is a moderated group–meaning that membership must be approved. To get you membership approved, please take the time to add your age/gender/location to your profile and tell us why you want to join. (Allow 3-4 days for approval.)
