There, you can change any of the information you entered. You will also see an option in the left sidebar called My Status. This option allows you to update your status and let people know what you are doing or thinking in 140 characters or less.
Note: While uploading a photo is not necessary, you are not allowed to send emails if you don’t have a profile picture. Therefore, it is highly recommended to upload a photo to increase your participation on MPWH, as well as gain more interest.

To get your free gold membership, you can share dating tips, give quality suggestions, report abuse on MPWH, promote them on social sites, or write articles or press releases about the site. Once done, send your confirmation information to them in an email to support.
An interesting feature to MPWH is the ‘Let’s MEET!’ feature. It can be accessed through the top menu, and it takes you to a page where you can see profiles of members and choose whether or not (yes or no) you would want to meet them simply from their picture. There is also an option for people who are unsure called Maybe. The cool thing about this feature is that you can see your mutual interests. In other words, if you are interested in someone, and they are interested in you, then you will see that person in the mutually interested tab in this section. It is a quick and efficient way to scroll through some profiles and see who you match up with without having to reach out and face rejection by members.
When you log into MPWH.com, there is a box on the left-hand side that shows you how many connections you have made regarding people who have viewed you, winked at you, emailed you, been added to your favorites, or are interested in you. It is a handy little feature to have as it allows you to see some stats easily on MPWH and figure out how well it has been working for you.
Another unique feature to MPWH is that you can hold your profile and reactivate it later. If you are going on vacation or if you have met someone and want to see how your relationship turns out before deleting your account, you can just put your profile on hold by going to ‘My Settings’ and then ‘Other Membership Services’ and enter your password. You can also hide your profile if you are going to be away for a few days and don’t want people contacting you.
Other features of interest are:
- The ability to create your blog or view other member’s blogs. It is an excellent way to interact and meet new people.
- The forums offer a place to discuss dating, current events, and even issues you are having.
- A great selection of search options to choose from.
- The ability to comment on someone’s profile directly under their picture. It increases interaction on the site, and it allows you to say hello quickly.
- When looking at a profile, you can easily block the member, report them, or hide them from your search results.
- You can access everyone that you blocked under the ‘My Lists’ section in the top menu.
- Send winks to let people know that you are checking them out, and you are interested in them. You get to include a one-liner from a predetermined list with your wink.
Safety and Privacy
MPWH.com does not screen its members. Therefore, use caution when talking to or meeting members on MPWH. Never give out your personal information and always meet someone by using your transportation and meeting in a public place.
Your privacy is important, and they ensure that it is a 100% anonymous place to create a profile. All information you submit will be kept private, even when you engage in the verification process, and there are many privacy settings in MPWH to help you keep unwanted herpes singles from checking out your profile or your pictures.

For all privacy concerns, make sure you read the privacy section in the footer menu before signing up.
Which STD Singles Does MPWH Cater To?
They call themselves the number one dating site for people living with herpes, and there is no selection to meet singles with other STDs on the site. In fact, herpes is rarely mentioned on MPWH simply because it is assumed that if you are signed up with the website, you have herpes. So, know that when you search for members, herpes is the STD that they have.
To help you stand out on MPWH, and to help you find other members who are willing to prove they are who they say they are, there is a verification process that is available to all members. You can verify your job, income, education, age, and picture through a simple process that is laid out clearly in the verification section, inside your account. MPWH.com actively encourages you to verify details about yourself. In fact, when doing this MPWH review, I found that the site encouraged you to get verified with a big, noticeable green box. You can’t miss it!
Verification helps you to prove you are who you say you are, but it also has extra benefits, such as increasing the likelihood of you getting noticed due to your profile being listed above other profiles in the search results. Moreover, MPWH.com says that you will increase your chances of being recommended to other members and receiving recommendations of other verified members. Once verified, you receive verified icons below your picture and by the appropriate sections in your profile so that other members can easily see that you have gone through the verification process.
Searching for other users is very easy. When you hover your mouse over the Search label in the top menu bar, you get the option to search with an advanced search, a location search, a new member search, or a username search.
1. Advanced search: Here, you can look for a gender, age, and location, plus use additional filters, such as distance, photo, height, keywords, relationship status, looking for, ethnicity, body type, religion, education, smoking, drinking, and children. It helps you zone in on the perfect member if you know what you are looking for. Just click on what you want to filter your search by, and then use the drop-down menu to choose your personal preferences. When you finish one filter, you will notice that another box appears to choose another filter. Click on the appropriate filter and choose your personal preference again. Continue until you have filled out all of your preferences for the advanced search.
2. Location search: This allows you to search by age, gender, photo, and location – which includes city and zip/postal code. It is an excellent way to find singles close by.
3. New members: Search through new members according to gender, age, and photo. It will come in handy after you have been on MPWH for a while.
4. Username: If you know who you want to search for, then just enter their username into the box and off you go.
STD Support And News
The blog and the forum provide a sense of community; however, the blog is the best section to receive STD support. Inside the blog, you will find people talking about herpes research, diagnosis issues, and common concerns. If you don’t find a topic you are looking for, just create your blog and wait for comments from other members.
One thing I liked during our review was that the navigation was super easy. Just by hovering over an option in the top menu, I was led to many other options relating to each heading. I found this to be very user-friendly, and it helped me navigate through MPWH quite quickly.
Also, the search fields were unique and fun to use in the advanced search. MPWH.com uses a unique drop-down design to help you see everything clearly and make quick decisions on what your preferences are.
MPWH.com has a direct phone line that you call 24/7 for professional support. It is unique for an online dating site, and it allows you to get instant feedback to your concerns or questions. However, there is also an extensive FAQ section to help you answer any questions you may have. If you would rather send a message to their staff, then you can click on ‘Contact Us‘ in the footer menu, then click on the appropriate concern to send a message through their convenient form.
This MPWH review turned up what I expected – a great herpes dating site that has excellent features to help you find the type of relationship you are looking for, whether it be a friend or something more.
The signup process is easy. MPWH.com is incredibly easy to navigate through and use. And, with the ability to verify yourself and prove you are who you say you are, your chances of finding someone will go up exponentially.
