STD Friends comes across refreshingly different from other niche sites, as it is aimed at helping you find a companion for romance, dating and the like; but also someone with whom you can share your problems. It is not targeted at any specific STD, but offers an inclusive community, accepting members with any of the common STD illnesses, such as Herpes, HPV, HIV/AIDS, Thrush, Hepatitis B/A and so on.

Even as a Standard user, you can tap into some of the best features on the site, but in addition, you can also opt for the Gold membership.
Social Networking Features
The site operates almost like a social networking site like Facebook, where you can make friends with others, establish a connection, receive updates on their profile and leave comments and so on. Favorite lists or blocked lists help you manage the interactions better, keeping track of those whom you wish to remain in touch with. An interesting feature allows members to find hot members by rating them, using a button to say “hot or not”, based on the profile pictures.
Helping you Cope Better
There are blogs and informative articles and topics related to the illness, so you can check out the news digest every day in order to keep abreast with the latest researchand findings of STDs. If you have any problems, the FAQs and the Technical support are just a click away. All members can use the guest book, participate in forums, read blogs and articles and so on. You can read the latest articles on STD related topics, such as Home remedies for Chlamydia or Symptoms of Syphilis and any others. The categories and the number of articles on the topics are clearly mentioned on the side, so it makes it very easy to select a topic of interest.
One of the gripes we have with this site is that the membership base is a little smaller, especially when compared to the large players in this niche group of STD dating.
The privacy settings of STD Friends are top notch, so you can be assured that your personal information remains secure. The site is a trusted one that has been in operation since 2001. It allows members to remain anonymous while connecting and meeting real people.
STD Friends offers a great platform for meeting others people with similar problems and finding love, companionship and support in your fight against STDs. The site is known for its personalised attention and round the clock support, and is the perfect outlet for chatting with others in your condition, meeting them and then taking things further, if you like.
