Matchmaking?

Recommended Posts

sim

Hello,

In the past- I have been set up on dates with a well-known Matchmaker.

Last night she contacted me- telling me she had the perfect match-up!

The problem? I was diagnosed with Genital Herpes about a month ago (from a trusted boyfriend). Do I have any right to return her call? I have been hung up on it because I don't think it would be fair to the man, but on the other hand- I can't keep degrading myself and taking myself out of the dating pool.

If I do return her call and go on the date- how do I approach it?

I'm confused, sad and disappointed! Advice is greatly appreciated!

Thank you :)

Go on the date and have fun!!! Dont miss out on meeting a potentially great person bevause of a stupid skin rash. I think you only need to disclose when you are ready to be initimate with this person. You only have one life to live; dont let the stigma of a stupid skin rash push you away from meeting potential relationship material.

      That’s right, most infections of the one type are in one nerve ganglion. As such, the virus only appears at the skin’s surface where that ganglion reaches to.  This does all come down to the numbers though, if you have no other evidence than a firmly positive HSV infection, the default assumption which is not likely to be wrong is that type 1 is oral and type 2 is genital. A positive swab is the only evidence to the contrary.

      I was having back to back OB's and decided to try several things I had read about here.  The first one was instant gratification:  oil of oregano diluted with fractionated coconut oil.  I could feel another OB coming, tingles, and just spread the oil all over the area.  In a few minutes the tingle was gone.  The lesions and red scarring i had responded well to it too.  Went away promptly.  The second thing was diet.  A person on this forum said they had good results by eating more vegetables, some fruit, meat and mostly using potatoes for carbs.  Like, leaving grains alone.  I decided to leave wheat alone and use other grains occasionally.  I no longer eat chocolate, nuts, seeds, coconut, oats, as these r all potential triggers for an OB.  I take 1000 mg lysine 2 x day in case i unknowingly eat some food that is high in arganine.  So far so good.  Another person on this forum said she took neem capsules 2 x day and hadnt had another outbreak in 2 years.  So i do that too.  It hasnt been long enough for me to make any great claims, but the continuous, never ending breakouts have stopped, i have energy and feel good.

      Is it possible to catch HSV 2 somewhere else other than the penis... And if so does this mean you will not transmit from that area?

      I wouldnt want to give anyone info that they might decide to use against me at some point.  U must tell those that u must tell, but otherwise, i would only unburden myself anonymously, like on a forum.  No judgment or harm here.

      Could you recommend any decent treatment if you know of any?
