There's a new Tinder-style dating app for people with herpes

A new Tinder-style dating app has been created for people suffering from sexually transmitted infections.

Herpes sufferers need not be alone after a tech firm from Hong Kong created a brand new dating app that lets them meet similarly afflicted people.

The MPWH (Meeting People With Herpes) app adopts the same format as Tinder, with users swiping left or right depending on whether or not somebody appeals to them.

The key difference, according to The Journal, is that you need to tell the app the kind of Herpes you are suffering from before being allowed to browse your fellow users.

“The app aims to help people living with Herpes find love, companionship, friendship and support,” say the producers MPWH, and it's available to download on both iOS and Android.

The vast majority of users on the app are based in the United States - somehow we don't see there being much of an uptake in Ireland.
