If you think you may have it, get tested as the treatments out there will provide you with a world of relief. The truth is though that anyone worth dating won’t back out because of something so small.
I didn’t back out on my gf when she told me…and it took 4 years and and a bit of carelessness on our part for me to get it.
It’s been over 20 years I have not dated…yup very lonely and sad…Honestly, I don’t know how to tell and don’t want to see that look on his face when I say btw I have herpes…
Honestly I am tired of all of the negative stigma attatched to Herpes and HPV as well. about 1 in every 5 people have it or have (or had) some kind of STD. Life goes on, but people who are ignorant about it, make people feel that they’re not worth shit when they try to live a “normal” life.
Instead of judging those who have herpes, we could get EDUCATED about it. the most common response i have gotten since dating after being diagnosed is “well, its not your fault, there was nothing you could have done differently, i would never leave you for something as dumb as that.” so for all you rude people out there, believe me, you can easily get it.And if it took getting an std to take better care of myself, to stress out less, and made me smarter than I cant hate it all together, its just a bummer to have an outbreak.But hey, I take my valtrex and I ride my bike, go swimming and camping. It’s truly sad how disgusting people are in terms of what they say about herpes when the don’t know a thing about it, just what they have heard or think they heard.Because HPV 16 may not cause outer symptoms but it causes cancer if left unchecked. As most of us caught what we had by not sleeping around, but from someone we were in a committed relationship with who we trusted. How is having an ailment as common as a cold gross? It’s uneducated people like you who publish lame stories such as this that cause such misconceptions about a simple virus that millions of people have. because one day you no you are going to have to tell them.You people have NO IDEA how you can easily catch it. ignorance is why people who do have it are afraid to come out and be honest about it!!! so how do i meet a nice lady that may have it to and we dont have to say we have it.
