welcome to the board. I know this is upsetting for you. You will have no promblem finding a bf or husband . Herpies is not the end of the world although it feels like it. hSV1 dont carry the same stema that hsv2 does. most people seeing someone woith HSv1 just think oh it a cold sore and pretty much ignore it. most do not relise it even herpies.

im finding that talking about it is helping me cope better. i have been carrying genital hsv1 for 5 years and the only people that knew were my brother, cause he had to take me to the doc, and my boyfriend i had after i contracted it. he was totally ok with it so i didnt really have to "deal" with it. now i am single again and going through all the same emotions i did before.

i have been talking about it with my close friends and finding that a lot of people have it, and although everyone in our society feels its ok to joke about it, a lot of people suffer from it. and it not a joking matter.

i am happy i found this website.
