Dating a person with genital herpes
I always just told myself.."you can never have a girlfriend". I had more opportunities where girls came into my life, whether it be through brothers setting me up or girls that would approach.The more female interaction I have, the more I realise what "im missing out on". Everyone around me has noticed I'm growing into a different person. I met a girl a couple weeks ago that works closely with my brother, she's amazing and beautiful.One of the first things that you should do is get STD tested yourself!Testing is affordable and maybe, I hate to say, it but there's a good chance you may have Herpes also.Excuses create distance between partners and often lead to misunderstanding and guesswork.Inaccurate and stigmatising articles and advertising have contributed to many of us having a lot of negative beliefs related to herpes that make it difficult to convince ourselves that others would want to be with us.Most people (like 70%) with genital herpes don't even know they have it. If you follow all these preventative measures, the chances of getting the herpes virus is like less than 3%. If you test positive, and your partner is positive... Since you cannot pass the virus to someone already positive, then you can both enjoy a worry-free sexual intimacy.2. Maybe ask them to tell you more about the virus and what it's like to live with it. Don't get sexual when your partner has "The Talk" with you. Many people have long term relationships with a herpes partner and NEVER GET THE VIRUS. But, there's still that chance of getting the virus if you are dating someone with herpes.
But girls find it desperate and needy and basically you can't win.
This strategy may have more disadvantages than advantages.
