While most people who join herpes groups are nice, normal people, there are always a few folks out there who are trolling for dates/sex, or who send you a message recommending a herpes site, group, product or dating service for which they may receive a commission or have another motive for getting you to join.
If anyone like this contacts you, please report this immediately to your group admins or contact us at this site.
Many local herpes groups function as both a Herpes Support Group and a Herpes Social Group.
There are also many “secret” (hidden) herpes Facebook groups that have hundreds or thousands of members, but cannot be found by doing a search and require knowing the right person who can “add” you.
Herpes social groups often use terms like “Friends” as in “Bay Area Friends” (SF Bay Area) or “H2O” as in “DC H2O” or “H Club” or “H Friends”.
A lot of regional herpes groups can be found on Meetup.com, Facebook (see below), Yahoo Groups, and other websites and social media platforms.

View the list below, then follow the instructions to join your local herpes group.
