Okay, so he's driving over for 6 hours and it's not for sex... so there's no rush to tell him, right? Do you know anything about his sexual health and history? Maybe that's something that both of you can discuss when the circumstances are such that something intimate is likely going to happen. Maybe you might want to learn more about him first? Such as his views on STIs, not just limited to but definitely including HSV. What is his status and what is his attitude towards it?
My advice: take a step back mentally, take a deep breath... you've met this guy on a dating website and chatted with him on Skype... for a month. It sounds to me like you desperately want to love somebody (right now you're infatuated with him because so far all his bells and whistles are catching your attention), but be cautious because you don't know him as well as you think you do. Take your time - make sure he's really right mentally.
Hey NMG, welcome honey. Here is a link by a wonderful male Moderator who has given the talk many of times and has never been turned down, he is also in Chat alot so you could possibility chat with him for advice. Its all in how you tell him not so much as important as what you say but how you say it. Let us know how it goes. Hugs Aces xo

I'm requesting STD testing at my doctor's office. He wants me to get their in-house herpes 1&2 tests. I'm planning on getting another Western Blot because we never resolved the paired test I requested last February that they mistakenly sent in as unpaired. Should I not bother with the in-house test? I don't see the point in getting a test where false positives are so common.
