I've foolishly tried these charlatans three separate times over a 5 year span and it is a complete and utter con. They take advantage of earnest people's desire to not be lonely by basically forcing you to become a member if you want to have any real results. There's the rub. After increments of one month, two months and 5 months, no hits. Once I canceled my membership I received hits instantly: every time. This obvious ploy to retain your money is so greedy and blatantly clear its shameful. There is a reason these people were sued in a class action lawsuit. Save your money and date normally and just tell them or, $#*! it, spread the love. We desire to not be lonely and these parasites are taking advantage of us. Please don't be a three-peat idiot like me. Also, the same company owns all the top three std/herpes dating sites. It's the biggest clandestine rip off going.
I've noticed that a lot of people will message me once and then never hear from them again. There are about five women that are active on a regular basis from my location in TX and it is insane how many people will not reply or anything on this site. I definitely wasted my money for a three month subscription. I can tell there are ALOT of fake profiles by the way they are worded. It looks like a robot has went in and scripted multiple paragraphs together. The site functionality is incredibly poor and constantly has to reload or glitches out when you are typing. Also it seems to be only really really beautiful older women on there and most seem way to good to be true. I'm honestly st the point to where I'll talk to someone and can't tell if they are cat fishing me or are even human or a robot. I thought POF was bad but this has got to be even worse. The only good thing I can say is that I have met two women in the past two months who I believe are truly real and the conversations have been great. Let's face it though, only reason people use this site is to find someone to have sex with without worrying about "having the talk"
So expensive simply for the privilege of messaging someone you're attracted to. The site is boring and slow with few people using it. It is because of the extortionate membership fee that few people sign up. I have emailed them to suggest that they significantly reduce the membership fee in order to bring in more people. They would most probably bring in more revenue if they charged just a tenth of the fee. Pure greed and short sightedness.
There wasn't a huge amount of people in my area, but I found my soulmate within a couple months. There didn't seem to be many scammers or fake profiles, so that was another plus.
DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY
Ive been on this site a few months as a paying member. The site suspended my account sending me emails to send them a copy of my passport and drivers licesnse.
I try to contact them to ask why and I get the same email again. I finally blocked my credit card and refuse to send my personal information. DONT LET THEN TRY TO SCAM YOU.
You cant send any messages unless u pay but u can like someone and theres nobody no here!!!what I would like to know is WHAT am I paying for ????
- Hardly anyone on there
- Of the people that are, hardly any with photos.
- Limited accessibility (Have to pay to message) - Which is a good thing in a way
- The site is too expensive for what it is.
- Ugly interface, slow website and the mobile version has issues; brings back only a couple of profiles in "search".
It could be so much better, especially if there were more people on there. I don't feel that it's marketed very well, especially considering about 50 - 70% of the population has what I have. They need to run some PR and awareness social campaigns or something.
Obviously there are benefits to a site like this, but now that there are regular dating websites that are incorporating std questions into their algorithms, this could be a sinking ship.
I signed up for MPWH and Positivesingles, put all my photos and details in both sites. Next day i could not login, my account was suspended. Now i cant go in an delete anything. Send emails to support no response. Big mistake, i should not have put my photos in.. Stay away from this site, its a con.
I have been using PositiveSingles for almost six months and met a few interesting people on here. Can't really understand why everyone is throwing s#$' at this site. In my opinion one of the best sites along with HIVdating4u. Sometimes you need to have a little patience. Just my two cents.
I dont trust this website one bit.
Recently, I tried to open an account with PositiveSingles. The next day my account was suspended for "suspicious activity." So, I contacted them to ask what my suspicious activity was, and this is the reply I got.
We are sorry for the inconvenience. Our system detected some unusual details on your account. To activate your account, please get your profile get verified on our site. Method 1: Upload a readable copy of your clear ID (Driver's License, State ID card, Military ID or Passport, NO PERSONAL PHOTOS)
Why does an HIV dating site want to have my personal ID in its records? That makes no sense at all. Why would I have to reveal who I am and my condition to complete strangers?
It is really unusual that they are asking for such information.
The whole idea of a website should be to provide members anonymity - as oppose to your request to reveal my information.
And, here's a report about the website, saying it was fined for sharing people's confidential information, instead of "keeping them confidential."
They sound like scam artists to me.
In order to use this site effectively you need to pay. You are only allowed to "wink" at someone or post comments on forums. Not really a place to chat online first to see if you want to take the relationship to the next level.
The free website does not allow you doing anything. Besides, I am really impressed about the bad reputation and more impressed that I agree....
Really surpirsed to see so many negative reviews. I am HIV+ since 2008 and 'PositiveSingles' was the first STD dating site I've been using...with good results btw! Only reason why I stopped using it was because I personally like 'HIVdating4u' a little more (seems to have more members in my area, even though I think 'PositiveSingles' ha smore members in general).
Conclusion: Good dating site if you are HIV+ and don't feel like spending ur life alone. You can find plenty of people, some looking for casual relationships, some looking for serious relationships. IMO four stars for 'PositiveSingles' and really the best site I've been using together with 'HIVdating4u'. One or the other will give you what you want.
Now i will say i have met a hand full of women off here at least 10 in person and i have yet to pay for anything cause they either messaged me first or i found a way to look them up or vise versa thas the only thi g i will say that is remotely gud bout this site is that i have met some women from the site but they really pissed me tbe hell off when tbey suspended my account for absolutely nothing at all had no aparent reason to do so ....this is a bill$#*! ass site if they cant relay a cause or reason as why u suspended my account evn or especially if im not a payin member fhas jus sum garbage a** bulls*** anyway you look at it suspended for no reason then i cant get in contact with you to see as of why ....bad business PS i hope yal get shut TF down and down for gud and some other site surfaces that is more bout business cause clearly you are not .....IN MY OPINION PS GETS A STRONG A** .....F .....F*** Positive Singes BS A** site straigt up garbage
I can't log into my account even though the password and username is correct having clicked on the forget mail,no password recovery mail has been sent to date and non of my mails to positive singles has been replied
Have been on here for a year, paying user, most people will not ever reply, very rarely somebody does, and then 100% of those people "disappear". They have fake accounts to bait you to pay so you can message them.
This site is atrocious. From my experience, most of my encounters were with low class people who are extremely vulgar, practice bullying, especially in the public chat, brag about masturbation, sexual conquests, hunting "pu**y", an*l sex and so many offensive topics it's downright horrifying. The Nigerian scammers have got a pretty good grip on it too. There seems to be no safeguards in place. Do not waste your money.
I met three guys in person two were actually nice and about 5 fake guys. They just disappeared after winking conversing and when the next step was meet and greet. Gone! Not sure how the others got through but they did so pay for a long membership......Give it a try Oh free does not give you much and photos did help but I just dont like to keep it posted.
From conversations with multiple women, I have determined this is a scam. Things I told one person would be repeated from a complete different person. I can tell I'm talking the same admin because of repeated conversations with different people. Then when things start to get any where near serious, bam, gone.
After serving all these other people mentioning the same thing, convinced that this is a scam.
Ghost website, no one seem to be there, except to those that run it, making money on people diseases. Appalling not to mention expensive.
Having been on this site for about 30 days, I'm quite convinced it is a ruse and a scam. I don't know where they get or how they keep these profiles. But I think it's all manipulated and a clever fake to keep you engaged on the site, and paying membership fees. Don't waste your money. Better spent buying Valtrex!
I received very few emails in comparison to other sites. The ones that did respond, were not actually quality people looking for a relationship. They were only interested in pictures and sex.
Is it your normal practice to offer extended gold member status for helping your weak staff do the job that they are assigned to? Rewards for assisting in the exposure of scammers? My membership was paid up until Jan 3rd, 2016 but now, it's been suspended. I've called & e-mailed but there's no response whatsoever. As soon as my fiance" went on the site, also with "gold" member status to determine what was going on, she also was suspended. This is pretty bad, PS. I hope we will be able to bring this matter to a legal standpoint as you have clearly violated your own policies & refuse to respond to questions regarding these matters. Yes, dead profiles, fake winks, people that may not even exist. This is a major scam. My fiance' & I have attempted to contact the so called staff at your site for explanations but no one responds. I think that 36 hours is quite sufficient for an explanation of why we're out over $120 collectively invested yet unjustified by you people. This does not end here, I assure you. Please sprout the courage & consideration to at least respond to your our calls &/or e-mails. What are you afraid of? Are you criminal & cowardly as well? We'll talk soon, one way or another. I was sent a message stating that I was, "required" to contact you. We've called & we've e-mailed your posted contact number as well as your posted e-mail address. I have over 3 months of active membership left & have been suspended with not one bit of effort on your part to even begin to explain why. I hope you go to jail, & since you've made NO effort to resolve this, explain this or even refund our loss, I will make every effort to assist in that result. It also is obvious that many others here feel robbed by you people. Now, we're on board as well. You have all of our contact info. We've waited patiently for your explanation, responses or justifications. Get with it or get sued.
I'm sorry, but not really. I'm a writer & simply cannot believe that you people don't respond. "Required" to contact you by phone or e-mail? Shouldn't you be "required" to respond? Are you just ghosts also? Instead of handling things well, you seem to ignore them. What a joke. Well, I suppose that the joke is on me, as well as the others here that rely on you to care & honor the honor system.
There are seemingly very good people on your site. There are others that need to go. Take a moment's pause & handle things effectively. If you're scared, get under the bed.
Have a great day ignoring your responsibilities, it's ok, real people will smell the stench & step away from it.

Positive Singles is the biggest dating site scam I have ever seeing. I wish some one would investigate. The adm sends you empty winks from people who left the site years ago. I replied to a few of them to see what happened. They were never read. I even received winks from people who thanked me for viweing their profiles when in fact, I had never viwed their profiles. WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS NOT LEGAL FOR THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO ABIDE BY THE LEGALITY BEHIND ONLINE BUSINESSES.
Yah so the 5 star reviews you see are spam I assure you.
Stay away from this site. It is extremely expensive and most profiles are 'dead' once people see what it costs...they will not come back since only 'gold members' can talk to each other.
I signed up for a month and found many of my potential matches were inactive for over a year. I did manage to find an active match but since she wasn't a 'gold' member she couldn't reply back anyway! She did manage to communicate by 'winking' at me several times lol.
I found out There was a class action lawsuit filed against this company in 2012 for deceptive advertising and selling user profiles to 'affiliates' among other things. Just google the case to get more details if you want to see proof.
