Same old story

Recommended Posts


I know this is on here all the time, but I can't stop feeling horrible about myself. My ex gave me herpes, I am in my 30s, and I feel like I will never be able to have another relationship again. I am so angry that he did this to me, and has given me this burden. He has moved on seemly with no conscience about what he did. He has said go and find a better relationship - thanks you ruined that for me. I hear some many different reactions, and I am so afraid of what would happen. I don't want to get close to someone, only have them look and me like I am a walking disease. I would never not tell. How many people out there would really be comfortable dating someone with this? I live in the south, and things are not as progressive here. Do I have to move to even have a chance? I am so hurt, angry, confused, and lonely. Thanks for whatever support.

I completely understand where you are coming from. However, when I was 15 an older man gave me herpes. I know exactly what you mean about a walking disease because that's how people look at me. My "NOW" ex-boyfriend was OK with it at first but a year ago is when it hasn't been ok and I just found this out! He apparently has thought about settling down and having kids but didn't want to get herpes. Meaning, he didn't want to settle down with me and used herpes as a fallout! Talking about stringing someone along. That he did. I don't think you have to move. Move if you feel it's the right thing to do. I moved away when I was 18 but didn't make a difference. People are going to be ignorant there's no stopping that. With herpes, you have the upper hand and weeding out the good people and bad people. The good people are going to love you no matter what!
