Iowa 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!

About the group:

We are growing the local support group in the Midwest area (Lincoln, Omaha, Council Bluffs… Etc).  This group will be a way for people to meet and mingle and for those who are feeling alone with herpes and hopefully not feel that anymore. Feel free to join and come when you can!
