Positive herpes dating stories
I held off on sex for as long as I could, but it got more and more difficult.
One day, my new beau reassured me, "I'm disease-free, I just got tested.
I met dozens of electronic pen pals and eventually went on several dates.
It was a relief not to worry about when to bring up my medical history, and to bond with a guy over asymptomatic shedding instead of having to explain it.
My selling point, however, was telling him that approximately one in four people has herpes and, statistically speaking, he undoubtedly had slept with someone who had herpes. He thought about that for a minute and then realized he might not know.He said he would know if he had been with someone who had herpes. In the end, instead of rejecting me, he chose to continue our relationship. But after we had sex, he would always wash himself like a doctor scrubbing down for an operation.
