Ohio Herpes Dating, HPV Dating – Local Social and Support Groups

Note: These herpes (and usually HPV) groups are not run by HWerks.  They are run by awesome volunteers! While some groups may focus on support, others may be purely for social and dating.  Local groups are just another way to meet people in your area and are a great asset to the community!  Each group is different so please visit their website for more details.  See the Local Groups page to learn more or Join HWerks and start meeting people today!

Herpes Cincinnati

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/herpescincinnati/

From their Website:

Twenty percent of the U.S. Population has genital herpes. Eighty percent of the U.S. Population has oral herpes. Because of the fear of ridicule and rejection we hide and keep our secret. Here we can meet others in the Cincinnati area, who understand the minor inconvenience of this gift and maybe find a friend and shed our loneliness.

 

Ohio Friends

http://www.ohiofriends.org/

From their Website:

Ohio Friends is a statewide social, support group for those with Herpes and/or HPV (human papillomavirus).  We’ve been part of the worldwide H community since 1999. The H community is made up of groups just like this one with dating sites throughout the United States. The Ohio Friends mission  as a group has been to provide friendship, activities and support to those affected by these viruses. We are a multi-cultural group; our membership is open to everyone. Ohio Friends is run by volunteers who plan and host our events. When planning functions, members work to ensure your privacy and that events are held in a safe environment.
The Ohio Friends calendar will list upcoming events, but for you to receive details such as time and location you will need to subscribe to our newsletter. Members receive a monthly newsletter that gives details on upcoming events within Ohio as well as neighboring states.

Ohio Friends is a close association of equals who share a gift we can’t return. Welcome!
