Oregon 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!

PDX friends

From their Website:

PDX Friends (secret Facebook group)

Send a friend request to facebook.com/pdxsuperfriend. After you are added to the group, PDX Superfriend will unfriend you in order to maintain your privacy.

This group is intended to provide fun times and social support for those who have HSV and/or HPV and are in the younger age bracket (18-30 something). We also want to provide an interface to the Portland Area Friends (PAF) Yahoo group so we will be posting most of the yahoo group events and have the organizer of PAF as a member here as well.

Come meet people in the Portland area who are in the same boat as you are. I’ll try and make the events diverse so that as many people can participate in the group as possible. Anyone who is interested in helping set up a meetup or has suggestions can post them to the homepage or an existing meetup.


Portland Area Friends


From their Website:

Portland Area Friends is a social organization for people 18 years of age and older dealing with the challenge of herpes.

We are not a group that provides medical information or treatment options.

Our purpose is to provide a relaxed environment for fun and friendship. We go to local and seasonal events, happy hours, dinners at local restaurants, movies, pizza night, and an occasional day trip or camping trip.

Each month, our members plan our activities to ensure that there is something fun for everyone

Many members tell us that they delayed joining the group for a long time because they were intimidated by the thought of attending their first event. The same members tell us they wish they had come to their first event sooner, because they found it fun and helpful.

The members of the Portland Area Friends welcome you to join us for fun and good times! You are far from alone in dealing with this situation.
