Hi I just signed up. I found I had herpes many years ago. Both my partner and I have genital herpes. Now we are getting ready to separate and I am worried. How will I date now. I never had to date while I had this.

You should date just like you did before. Herpes is just a very common, mostly harmless virus. I have dated many women since getting this and have never been rejected.

80% of the adult population has hsv, so chances are the person you go out with will have it too.

Read all you can about this and you will feel a lot better. Here is a good article that talks about the transmission rates and you will see that it really isn't that easy to pass along:


Come to the Chat Room, there you will meet many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!
