There are a lot of social challenges that accompany those living with an STD so you if you’re going to get involved with a dating app designed for people like you it’s nice to know you can depend upon their discretion. This app not only has a lot of user friendly features, it also takes your privacy very seriously. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
When you sign up for Positive Singles you are required to register with a valid email address and you’ll also be prompted to set anunlock pattern the first time you use the app to protect your privacy. This is a great feature – especially if other people have easy access to your device and you’d rather they didn’t know about your situation. Once you get the basics out of the way, and you’ve entered the information for your profile, the app will ask for permission to access your location – you’ll want to allow this so that you’ll be able to find matches closest to where you live. After that you’re ready to get started.
The user interface has a pretty familiar feel to it if you’ve used any of the popular social media apps with any frequency. The main screen features a feed with matching singles in your area along with pictures if they’ve included them. If you tap on a picture you can access information about their profile, send a wink, favorite their profile, or send a message if you’re a premium member. If you want to become a premium member all you have to do is tap on the upgrade feature under the settings menu in the top left corner – you can choose to pay monthly, for three months, or for six months. Along with gaining the ability to send messages with a premium membership you’ll also be able to add photo albums, see who’s viewed your profile, and browse other profiles anonymously.

There’s a chatroom if you’re not quite ready to take the plunge with the whole one on one thing right away – this allows you to get comfortable with the app first. There’s also a blog, which is really more of a Twitter type feed, but it’s still a cool way to find some interesting information.
