Pierce says sometimes when people with STIs go on popular dating apps, they’ll add a series of numbers to their profile page or username that indicates they have an infection.“It’s a low-key way to say I am STI-positive,” she says.
This, of course, is something only people with that STI would know. However, if you choose to go this route and meet someone who doesn’t have an STI or understand what the numbers mean, make sure you’re clear and honest about your infection.
Pierce says it is OK to get to know someone first and reveal the STI after the first interaction.
However, if sex is involved, again, you need to be direct.
