Truster is a San Francisco-based technology company. It was founded to stop stigmas around health issues like depression. This herpes dating app helps people with herpes understand their diagnosis, meet people locally with herpes, and educate sexual partners. They are stopping the herpes stigma and preventing future spread through education and open conversation. “The isolation caused by social stigma can lead to larger issues, like depression. With Truster, people can find compassion, privacy, and support to avoid this.” – Steph Sczech, Truster Co-Founder
For most people diagnosed with HSV, the stigma is far worse than any symptom they experience. For this reason, the medical community usually only encourages testing if symptoms are visible.
Truster uses Facebook login for security. Early members preferred talking about HSV with someone that has been through a diagnosis, rather than friends or family. Once on the app, members can swipe through profiles of people they want to meet nearby.
Truster is new herpes dating app, you will few people in your area. You may also join other bigger herpes dating app like PositiveSingles.com. PositiveSingles has been online for over 13 years.
With the new Tinder-style feature “Let’s Meet,” PositiveSingles makes dating much easier for people with STDs such as Herpes (HSV-1 & HSV-2), HPV and HIV. The app shares many of the same features as Tinder along with some unique upgrades. On Tinder, users are given one profile at a time. PositiveSingles has innovated to allow users to view two profiles at the same time. Users have a choice after they make a comparison: like one of the profiles or like neither of them. If they like one person more than the other, they can tap on her or him to like, and if they like neither of the two people, they can “swipe right” or “swipe left” to pass.
