STD Dating Apps – The Top 5 and Why

STD Dating Apps – The Top 5 and Why

Do you remember the day when you got the results from your STD screening? It felt like the world had crumbled under your feet. It is never easy to take in such news, which change your life forever. Some years back, discovering that you have an incurable STD such as HIV, HSV or HPV meant, for many people, that they would never find love again, spending the rest of their lives alone. This is no longer the case!

Being diagnosed with one of these diseases is not the end of the world and certainly not the end of your dating adventures. There are a number of mobile apps, specifically designed to meet and match people with sexually transmitted diseases and give them hope for living life to the fullest. Here you can find the top 5 STD Dating Apps and what they can offer.

1. PositiveSingles

Availability: iOS, Android

This is probably the best dating online platform for individuals with any sort of short or long-term STD. PositiveSingles is available on PCs and mobile devices as a website, and as an app, which is user-friendly and highly interactive. One of its best features is a live counsellor answering STD-related questions and providing support. In addition, there is a live dating advisor, who gives useful tips for dating and helps finding your best match.

Users can engage in a friendly chat with others, sharing a similar story and suffering their pain. Additionally, the app offers a map with the available STD help and support centres, as well as motivating individuals by sharing the numerous treatment and success stories of other members of the community. No doubt, PositiveSingles is one of the best places for STD diagnosed people.

    2. MPWH

    Availability: iOS

    This is a close community for people living with Herpes. The platform is active as a website and an app and similarly to Hift it’s all about privacy. Your details, as well as your entire profile, can be kept private, so that only people you approve can look at your info. The app also includes blog and forum, where members can ask questions or share problems and find answers from someone, who has experienced the same. If you identify as a member of this community, you can download the app from iTunes.

      3. Hift

      Availability: iOS, Android

      This is another app, which offers high level of privacy. No one can message you unless you have shown mutual interest in the particular individual. This will save you any unpleasant experiences with creeps and annoying people, you do not like. Hift is only available as an app and its website serves only as a point of information about the app. The platform mainly accommodates individuals living with HSV and HPV and helps them in finding like-minded soul mates.

        4. Hzone

        Availability: iOS

        Hzone is an app, specifically designed for HIV positive people. Now that the disease is no longer a death sentence, individuals should be encouraged to continue their lives and look for new love. Much like Hope, Hzone has some social networking features. For example, you can share pictures and experiences throughout your day. Also, the app incorporates a feature, which gives you suggestions of potential matches, based on location in close proximity to you. Hzone is only available on mobile devices, so you would need to download the app from iTunes to join the community.

          Hope is another great STD dating app, which acts like a mini social network for people with sexual transmitted diseases. Some of the most exciting features include a drag and drop profile builder, which makes it really easy and quick to create your presence, upload your pictures, preferences and location for best matches. What is more, you can even chat and have a video conversation with members you like. If you are open about your condition, you can connect your Hope profile to your Facebook one, and who knows maybe some of your friends on there have been living with the same issues for a long time, but were too ashamed to disclose it. You can give them Hope.

            7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

            7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

            Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

            Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

            Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

            So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

            Joe’s Goals

            Advertising

               

              Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

              Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

              Daytum

                Daytum

                is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

                Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

                Excel or Numbers

                  If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

                  What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

                  Evernote

                  Advertising

                    I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

                    Evernote is free with a premium version available.

                    Access or Bento

                      If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

                      Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

                      You can check out Access and the Office Suite here and Bento here.

                      Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

                      All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

                      Conclusion

                      I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

                      What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
