Dating website for hepb people

Hi all,

Anyone knows if there is a dating website for hepb people ? Not so sure if non-hepb people would like to date hepb people, I know there could be medical risks and most people do not want to deal with this.

Br,

Not that I know of, but it has definitely been raised with me that people are looking for one.

Not to be negative, but I couldn’t see a reason for it. I could see 2 hepatitis b carriers dating, but don’t see anyone without hepatitis trying to exclusively looking for someone with hepatitis b.

If anything, date as normal and tell them about your status if it gets serious.

I mean, theoretically it shouldn’t be necessary, but there are also a few people on this forum who have experienced traumatic relationship experiences to do with their Hep B status. If you know you don’t have to explain your status to someone, that’s a big conversation (and potential relationship-ender) off the table.

In the end, if it helps people with Hep B form relationships easier and be less alone, I would have a hard time arguing against it.

If have heard from a girl that she got rejected by her boyfriend after she told him about hepb status. I suppose if both have hepb they would accept eachother.

Hello!
Having such dating site sounds a good idea as many HBV carriers worry about acceptance in a relationship. But I guess it’s really unpractical as the sensitive information of the users could be exposed. Just imagine someone creating an account just for learning who has HBV and then telling everyone.

Right also, women would have less concerns. It’s the men who would have a harder time.

More men would date women with hepatitis b than women would date men with hepatitis b.

When I did not know I had hepb, not even my mom knew she had it, I wouldnt date a hebp woman, I rather date some one who didnt have it, irony of fate, I have hepb.

Yes, how to solve this right ?

My kids do not have hepatitis b. I have it. I would not and do not want my kids to date anyone with hepatitis b. It’s worry some that majority of the hep b carriers in the US are Asians and my kids might date other Asians kids who might or might not be chronic hep b. My kids are vaccinated but still you never know.

If they are vaccinated, they cannot get infected I assume ? When the relationship get serious usually the status will be revealed, so nothing to worry about ?

I don’t know but if teenagers are exposed, even when vaccinated, I do not know.

Just to chime in here, as long as you’re vaccinated and your antibody levels are above the threshold of 10mIU/mL, the risk is very very low that people will end up with a chronic infection. There are many here in relationships (my own included), where one partner is positive and the other negative (but vaccinated) and have not seen any transmission despite decades together. That even includes couples who have had kids.

Cheers,
Thomas
