Dating site for those with std
Pierce says it is OK to get to know someone first and reveal the STI after the first interaction.
However, if sex is involved, again, you need to be direct.

Pierce says sometimes when people with STIs go on popular dating apps, they’ll add a series of numbers to their profile page or username that indicates they have an infection.“It’s a low-key way to say I am STI-positive,” she says.
This, of course, is something only people with that STI would know. However, if you choose to go this route and meet someone who doesn’t have an STI or understand what the numbers mean, make sure you’re clear and honest about your infection.

If you want people to know you are STI- or STD-positive, add it your profile page to weed out people who consider it a deal breaker. Some people like to take it slow and get to know someone before telling them about their infection.
A booming app industry in Silicon Valley means that new STI dating services pop up every few months, and a cursory Google search means that their marketing team, or their founder, or their intern, quickly discovers me. As time goes on and stigma lessens, there will be less of a demand for these services. She wanted me to become a spokesperson, and when I refused, someone higher up in the food chain emailed me again. But then the same thing happened again with another STI dating site, and then another, and another. I don’t think any STI dating service is going to reinvent the wheel and be successful when so many have tried and failed in the past.
