So, what most of you are saying is that people with herpes should lie. There are plenty other gems in my arsenal of embarrassment, but who hasn’t had a red-faced moment or 10? This additional stress is usually the result of a lack of understanding regarding herpes dating. Not one time was it a deal breaker and each time I was thanked for letting him know in advance. My question is, is this something I need to disclose early on in dating, such as you would a STD or something like that? And if you do have it and care to share, how did new partners react to the news? So its easier to catch,and a person has more outbreaks with type 2 vs type 1.
I dunno, it just seems a bit presumptuous to tell a date too soon and finding just the right moment can be tricky. So what is the truth? “Who is not an ignorant dilettante,” she is quick to add. They feel that it is better to be alone and lonely, than to take any chance of being ridiculed and rejected. WebMD does not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Posted: 3/11/2013 3:14:40 AM N0, it would not be a big deal to me, just an obstacle, and I would deal with it when the time came. In my experience the easiest action you’ll find is with someone with herpes.
It’s even possible you have herpes, you just don’t breakout. Sure I was wrong for walking outside of the house without telling my wife where I was going. A really cute guy too. Not only did her date clean up after her, “He still wanted to make out the next day!” After she brushed her teeth, naturally. Herpes dating introduces honesty in the relationship from the very beginning. Women who have genital herpes before they become pregnant have a very low risk of transmitting the virus to their babies. I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be offensive – and you’re right, nobody’s body is perfect – but cold sores on a woman’s mouth would be an instant turn-off for me!
no matter how they got it. If a virus manifests itself in a particular way, chances are it will keep on manifesting in the SAME way. But this is I think another example of the double standard that exists… Nationwide, 45 million people ages 12 and older, or one out of five of the total adolescent and adult population, is infected with HSV-2. I’m guessing she wanted to tell you all evening but could never find quite the right moment so she texted it later and crossed her fingers. Instead of being grateful that she told you at all, because from reading this thread it sounds like a lot of people do not, you just slam her for telling you via text rather than trying to look beneath the surface and think about what was really going on, so I’m going to join those who called you insensitive. From a medical point of view, the herpes is very benign, it is no different to any other flu.
Probably not. I’d have to say yeah, it’s a deal breaker for a blossoming relationship. That version is located downstairs, it can probably be dormant where she might not exhibit any symtomps. I don’t get the logic of “well a lot of people have it any way, so why not.” While it would never go away, if more people were more discerning about who they have sex with, then so many people wouldn’t have herpes in the first place or at least it wouldn’t spread so fast. I would not walk away from him right off the bat knowing that the odds were pretty decent that the next guy I was with would have herpes and either not know it or be lying about it. it would be like reasoning, that since most American’s are overweight, why shouldn’t you eat a lot and not exercise too. Technically, you’re right.
But, as we just learned, the majority of people with herpes have no idea they’re infected because they don’t show symptoms (or symptoms are so mild they go unnoticed). Not me. So your reply is misleading. I do not think this is true. Instead of being grateful that she told you at all, because from reading this thread it sounds like a lot of people do not, you just slam her for telling you via text rather than trying to look beneath the surface and think about what was really going on, so I’m going to join those who called you insensitive.

Why do you think it means they have a sketchy lifestyle? Let’s say you were not attached to the guy/girl yet–you just started seeing him/her & do not believe it will work out in the long run anyway. And accordig to WebMD, oral-to-genital herpes is possible, but not common. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum. I have dated people who were kind enough to tell me that they had this but all of them had their last break-out many years before we dated (they both also only had 1 break out.) Personally, if their last outbreak was over 7 years ago, i would date them. Over $68,000 in prizes has already been given out to active posters on our forum. Additional giveaways are planned.
