Whether you join a dating site for people with herpes or one of the huge commercial dating sites, the results can be the same. Either there is nobody in your area or the competition is huge. So, what do you do to get noticed or pass the time until that perfect one joins? This is where the social networking comes in.
Social networking is basically interacting with other members in various ways and having fun doing it. Look at it this way, Facebook is not a dating site but they are probably up there, in terms of dates, as the big guys are. You have friends, wall posts, games..etc. In other words, you are now a personality instead of just a profile.
How does this help you? In a perfect world, you would go online, click a profile and find that perfect person that lives around the corner from you. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Having herpes and/or HPV doesn’t make it any easier. What social networking does is it opens your search radius and that of others. You may catch the eye of that perfect one, who came across your profile, and lives an only hour away. We know this happens and have the marriages to prove it! We have also had quite a few that spanned several states.
So, how do you get in on this whole social networking thing? We make it simple with the forums and chat. What we did not expect was how popular our groups have become. We first noticed that our main forums were slowing down and that had us stumped. We realized this was due to to the groups exploding. Groups are created by members for people that share a similar interest.
Here are some of the more popular groups within HWerks:
