Hey Everyone I'm New

Recommended Posts


:DHey... I'm new to the site, and I'm really interested to see what I will find and learn. I've actually had herpes for a little over a year now, I was 18 when I got it. At first I was so devasted, but now I'm all smiles. I thought my life was over, and I wouldn't live the life I dreamed of, but I am living such a great normal life, and it's cool lol. Not many people know I have herpes except for two of my friends, and they're really cool about it, but there is a guy I really like and he likes me too, but I refuse to accpet his offer to go out with him, because I don't know how to tell him that I have herpes, and I'm scarred of what he will think. It would be nice to hear to talk with someone who could relate.

Butterfly of the Moment

Hey there, I think it would be okay if you went on a date or two with him...that way you get a chance to get to know him better and see if he is trustworthy or if he is "worth" telling. The thing is, he doesn't know you have genital herpes and he won't if you don't tell him. If you go out with him and find he is not trustworthy or someone you thought you liked, then you can end it, and you won't feel bad b/c he doesn't know you have it. Also, when you do tell him, it's best to do it in a calm manner and make sure you have the facts straight so that when he asks you questions you'll be able to answer them. Another poster on here used this similar line: "There's something I think you should know about me, but I ask that you keep an open mind." Tell him that you really like him, and understand if he's hesitant to begin a relationship with you, but ask him to do some research. Give him this website. If a man cares about you and not just likes you, then he'll give you a chance by at least listening to everything you have to say and do research on his own...he'll find a way if he really wants to be with you. Besides this, the female to male transmission rate is very low...and if you use condoms and don't have sex during outbreaks and take suppressive medicine (if you're not comfortable doing it don't) then he only has a 1% chance of getting the virus.

      @hopeful22 Sorry, just to save me a bunch of reading and possibly getting nowhere..and I'm not sure I'm asking correctly.. Is cas12a in the casY category?  Is there some list showing each useful enzyme and which category it's in?

      @Hairpeesthere is absolutely nothing inaccurate in what I have said and I stand by EVERY word. There is not one ounce of fact or accuracy in any of your comments. I’m sorry for your misinterpretations, but their yours alone. I suggest you need to undertake considerable research before commenting further. Please lift yourself.

      I was going to post something about this but I figure this should help people understand before this thread goes haywire.  CAS12A remember cas12a  Instead of CRISPR cas9 crispr cas12a is a more precise and deemed more safe.  In the past couple weeks CRISPR has had a lot of bad publicity over new research, but last week it was discovered that another enzyme CAS12A is very precise and safe.  I am guessing that Excisionbio is going to switch gears and start using CAS12A instead of cas9.  please see the article published last week.  https://www.genengnews.com/gen-news-highlights/crispr-cas12a-more-precise-than-crispr-cas9/81256099

      bad UI design. but I agree. they probably consider HSV-1 and HSV-2 comparable enough and will do each with a different CAS to see what works better.. and then likely do another study with whichever wins the comparison...
