Dating a person with genital herpes
This should be like talking about how your father died, or how you had anorexia in high school, or how you didn’t lose your virginity until you were 25.All of those things might be sensitive and relevant, but they don’t have to be dealbreaker-type issues if dealt with effectively.I wouldn’t put it in a profile, I wouldn’t say it on a first date, and I wouldn’t say it when slipping on a condom.
1/6 of the country has it and most don’t even know.
And finally, if there are herpes dating sites for people who aren’t afraid of your condition, maybe you should at least take a peek, okay?
Once you’ve come to terms with the infection and learned to manage both the physical and the emotional aspects, you may be thinking about getting back into a relationship, if you’re not already in one.
And I wouldn’t be dramatic, just simply say, you need to know something, I have herpes.
I control it with medication, but no matter how you slice it, it is what it is.
