Herpes, a highly contagious sexually transmitted disease will get in the way of your love and dating life if you let it.
For example, if you try and talk about it with a new love or dating interest, there is a very good chance you'll be rejected as someone he or she would like to start a relationship with.
Tread slowly with someone new if you don't feel comfortable discussing it and don't become intimate until you do feel comfortable.
On one hand, you really can't blame a potential match for rejecting you. After all, you have an infectious sexually transmitted disease. And they will always doubt your decision making process no matter what they say. So why bother?
On the other hand, wouldn't it make more sense to meet potential love or dating interests who have herpes already? Why go through the guilt, shame and rejection with non-herpes people when thousands of people in your own area who have herpes are available and share your outlook on dating?
Dating people with herpes takes the issue off the table and you both can concentrate on getting to know each other better and planting the seeds for a wonderful long term partnership.
If you do decide to date a non-herpes person, be responsible and protect her or him from contracting this annoying life style changing disease.
You should be honest and out yourself as a person with herpes. You'll feel better and he or she will appreciate and respect you. Hopefully they won't dump you and you'll be able to start building a stable relationship.
Don't let your hopes for a meaningful and lifelong love relationship end with Herpes. There are thousands of people just like you in your area. All you need is a place where you can find and meet them and an online dating website is just what you need.
