Dating someone that has herpes
But I personally try to never do that anymore, because it's not something that you should be apologizing for.It's just part of being with you, a part of your life. It's made me a great partner, and I will do the best that I can in terms of keeping that person safe. ED: Unfortunately, there's no way to "hack" dating with an STI.It's hard sometimes to vocalize those things, and it's sometimes scary to look at someone's face when doing that.My only caution with that would be: Always be confident before you put something in writing, because people screenshot things.I've had really positive experiences; I've had one serious relationship, I've had a couple consistent partners who were more casual, and I've been on Tinder.
I disclose really early, because that's who I am as a person and that's really important to me.ED: I think everybody after they get diagnosed reads the statistics about how common herpes is, but then looks around and goes, "But I don't know anybody who has herpes!If one in six people and one in four women have genital herpes, why haven't I heard about it from my friends and family members?MC: How do you tell a potential partner that you have herpes? What I say is "Hey, this is something that you should know about me.A few years ago I contacted this STI and it's relatively easily preventable if we use condoms and I will always tell you if there's something that you should know, like if I'm having an outbreak or anything like that.
