Q: Why STD? That is about sexually transmitted diseases, why not another acronym?
A: The acronym STD has always been synonymous with a negative association. But Someone to Desire promotes responsible dating and fighting against STD. One of our slogans is ‘STD – You betta check it’. Awareness of STD’s and knowing about them teaches our society that there’s a deeper level to the act of sex and consequences. It’s not something to hide, but something to promote awareness for and responsible living. And if it so happened that my name initials were STD, should I change my name or hide it? No, because it stands for something bigger than that. It would represent who I am as a person, my life, my life story and something to be proud of, not ashamed. Further, do we shun people with STD’s out of society? Has it come to that much of a negative association that people can’t see otherwise? We believe in education, openness, faith, creativity and thinking outside the box.
Q: Who are these stories about?
A: All the stories are based on true stories of me and those around me, but details have been changed to protect the innocent! The stories are universal, dating and relationships touch all of our lives. These are the stories that people don’t tell and keep to themselves. The pain is real and the humor we use is to remind us to not take ourselves so seriously. We are all human, after all.
Q: Do you provide professional advice?
A: STD is purely for entertaining purposes and if you are need of professional help, we encourage you to seek it through counseling, medical doctors, or whatever route works best. We in no way claim to be experts on the subject matter. Our opinions are expressly from our experience and knowledge. If it helps great, but we are not claiming to be experts in the field.
Q: How do I submit a dating question?
A: All questions are anonymous. You can submit questions (and like our page too) on FB, at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/someonetodesire or submit a question via email@example.com. You can also utilize the right pull out box that says ‘FEEDBACK’ as well.
Q: Every now and then, a serious post appears on your site that deals with abuse, rape, etc. Doesn’t that defeat your purpose of entertaining people?
A: Our message is for everybody dating, and unfortunately, there are traumatizing life events that affect our dating and relationships. These are real issues, just as much as humor, and we believe, should be brought to light. If there isn’t increased awareness, people aren’t educated and don’t understand the depth of the impact of these issues. We encourage anyone who has gone through similar stories and any of those issues to seek help. We try as much to help direct people to resources, but the ultimate decision to get help out of your situation is for you to make.
