Dating someone with herpes
Many couples manage for years without infecting the other partner. However, since you’ve already blabbed to family and friends that this girl has Herpes, I suggest you leave her alone. Your reaction is the reason why people are afraid to admit they have Herpes. 60% of the people who have genital Herpes don’t know that they have it and they are running around spreading it! Go get a Herpes blood test to see if you have HSV-1 (oral) or HSV-2 (genital) antibodies. You can take antiviral medication which will reduce your viral load to a negligible level, so that you cannot infect anyone.If you do have antibodies, it means you’ve been exposed and have the virus in your nerve root. This is a pain in the ass because the pills have to be taken several times a day. For the poll let's say that the person is someone you'd definitely consider dating under normal circumstances but I'm not going to say that they're otherwise perfect (if you answered "no" to the poll but would be willing if the person was indeed otherwise perfect feel free to share). So yes, I'd be willing to try, and if things worked out well and we were really into each other, I'm sure we could work out a way to try to keep the transmission issue under control.
They are careful during outbreaks, which she can always feel coming on, and her husband has not gotten herpes in all those years.She apparently requested a full battery of tests, to try and fully ease my mind as we discussed my worries in the past and she was confident she didn't have anything. Finding out down the road that their partners has herpes. I've always had trouble connecting with others, so limiting the future dating pool sounds like a bad choice. As far as I can figure if I want to try and stay with her, perhaps just suggesting we don't have sex while I sort through this is a good approach. Taking the risk of contracting it (assuming I haven't already) is a big risk even if statistically small as women I'd date in the future I'd obviously have to tell assuming I tested positive.
