It’s been over 20 years I have not dated…yup very lonely and sad…Honestly, I don’t know how to tell and don’t want to see that look on his face when I say btw I have herpes…
I would have rather gotten away with herpes than HPV because I now have complications with cervical cancer. Put it this way, the one you turn away because they may/may not have herpes, will be the reason why the next person u try to get involved with will be the one to burn you.
As for the other people on this forum who have herpes, consider yourselves extremely lucky. =) do some research before you start rambling on about a disease that is just as common as the common cold… like someone gave it to me but its hard to meet someone that you like and may want to hang out with or whatever.
Because HPV 16 may not cause outer symptoms but it causes cancer if left unchecked. As most of us caught what we had by not sleeping around, but from someone we were in a committed relationship with who we trusted. How is having an ailment as common as a cold gross? It’s uneducated people like you who publish lame stories such as this that cause such misconceptions about a simple virus that millions of people have. because one day you no you are going to have to tell them.
You people have NO IDEA how you can easily catch it. ignorance is why people who do have it are afraid to come out and be honest about it!!! so how do i meet a nice lady that may have it to and we dont have to say we have it.
Yes, I have herpes and because of those people that judge us I have been hiding and making excuses not to date cuz I am afraid to tell men.
