This Is Proof That Just Because You Have Herpes Does NOT Mean People Are Going To Run For The Hills When They Find Out

Hi everyone. Thought I’d share a positive experience with you all.

I was diagnosed with genital HSV1 early October. Pretty devastating and I’m still coming to terms with it. I’ve been hanging out with a guy for the past month. Someone I never would have expected to start a romance with. We have kissed and cuddled and hung out but beyond that we haven’t done anything else because i have been having a fairly constant out break that is just finally clearing up, and I knew that I had to tell him before sleeping with him.

Anyway, yesterday we were cuddling and making out, and i said: ” I’m really glad you’re willing to take things slow with me.” he said it’s no problem, kind of adds to the excitement to wait etc etc. And I was like “hah, I GUESS”, he then was like “why? What’s up?”

Long story short: I told him about my H and guess what? Doesn’t change a thing. He told me last night that he likes me even more and that he doesn’t mind waiting as long as it takes til I’m ready to get intimate.

I’m going to the doctor this week so they can have a look and see if there’s anything I can’t see, ask their opinion, then if I’m all clear, I’m getting some, cuz it’s been wayyyy too long for me haha!

Anyway, hope my positive telling a partner experience gives people hope. He’s not a boyfriend and has no obligations to me aside from liking me a lot, so this is proof that just because you have herpes does NOT mean people are going to run for the hills when they find out.

Cheers!
