Virginia 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!

Our group reaches from Ocean City, MD and Dewey Beach, DE all the way to Hagerstown, MD (even as far as WV)… from Richmond, VA to the northern-most points in MD (sometimes as far up as Philly and NYC)… and everywhere in between. We’re one of the most active HSV/HPV social groups in the country.

Membership is free, and there’s nothing to fill out. To join the group, simply come to an event. We offer a variety of fun-filled activities; it’s a great way to meet new friends, and, of course, new interests.
