Ohio Herpes Dating and Support
Since 2007, HWerks has been the community site for herpes dating, herpes support and social networking. It is the members who make this site what it is and they join for many reasons. Some come for friendship and dating while others come for the support they cannot get anywhere else. We have a vibrant community made up of people from all over with various backgrounds and their own stories. We hope to hear yours. Join HWerks and start meeting people today!

Ohio Herpes Groups (Local)
Please Note: These herpes groups (HPV, too) 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! Not all group members are a member of HWerks and vice versa. Each group is different so please visit their website for more details. Visit the Local Groups page to learn more about local groups.

Ohio Friends is a statewide social, support group for those with Herpes and/or HPV (human papillomavirus). We’ve been part of the worldwide “H” community since 1999. The H community is made up of groups just like this one with dating sites throughout the United States. The Ohio Friends mission as a group has been to provide friendship, activities and support to those affected by these viruses. We are a multi-cultural group; our membership is open to everyone. Ohio Friends is run by volunteers who plan and host our events. When planning functions, members work to ensure your privacy and that events are held in a safe environment.
Secret Herpes Facebook Groups:
Local Secret Herpes Facebook Groups (HPV, too) are popular among the herpes community. Acting as its own container, only group members can see within the group. At HWerks, we have our own secret Facebook Group for our members. They have access to these groups and many others. Learn more about Secret Herpes Facebook Groups and how they work.

While most groups have a secret Facebook Group, some still maintain an internet presence on older mediums, such as Yahoo Groups. This is usually only for a point of contact. Feel free to reach out to these groups but your mileage may vary.
From their Website:
Twenty percent of the U.S. Population has genital herpes. Eighty percent of the U.S. Population has oral herpes. Because of the fear of ridicule and rejection we hide and keep our secret. Here we can meet others in the Cincinnati area, who understand the minor inconvenience of this gift and maybe find a friend and shed our loneliness.
