Speed dating for friends
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/buffalohfriends/info From their Website: Diagnosed/living with oral or Genital Herpes or HPV? We invite you to join Buffalo Herpes Friends for friendship and support. Many of us are from Western NY and surrounding areas.
Social event listings (both local and national) are offered along with a link to a very active support group. We will keep you up to date on events and support group meetings in and around New York State.
“What I realized was missing from the experience that I was having was not just finding people with shared interests, but really people with a shared mindset,” Ilani said.
“That's an interesting filter that is harder to come by these days.
We’ve all been at the situation of going to our first meeting, not knowing what to expect, and feeling apprehension.
I can assure you that we are a friendly, down to earth group of people who try to make the experience as beneficial and welcoming as possible.
We’ll make sure to introduce you to other friendly people and make you feel at home.
We do not talk about health or support issues out in public (please keep those topics here in the message board), nor do we identify the nature of the group in any way. Coming to a social event is just like going out with any other extended group of friends, except here we all share a similar history.
