My Story

Recommended Posts

1PetiteLady

I had been dating a man (exclusively) for 11 years. He did not tell me that he had Herpes when we met. He was avoiding having sex sometimes, just wanting to cuddle. He eventually told me years into the relationship. Well, I showed the symptoms after having sex when he was recovering from an outbreak. I did not have any STD before being with him, so I felt that no other man would love me. He had commitment issues, so I ended that relationship, now with a lifetime STD. That is how Genital Herpes/Cold Sores on my face has became a part of my life. I have found it difficult to date a man, because of my concern for him and fear of rejection. I am told it is not that big of a deal, but it sure seems like it is. I have checked into the herpes dating sites, not finding very many people there. I am trying to find a local support group, to meet new people and maybe a nice man with the same STD as me. After researching both options, I am no closer to finding either. I am a strong woman, been through a lot in my life, but this is hard to deal with.

Hey 1PetiteLady, welcome to the site. I agree, having herpes does add to the already difficult act of dating. However, you seem like a beautiful, smart, and friendly person who someone would love to connect with. Just keep putting yourself out there and you will meet someone eventually. I know it's hard, but it often takes a long time to find "that someone". In the meantime, do what makes you happy and smile b/c you never know who you are going to meet.(:

Absolutely I fully agree :) with SheisBlue. Dating is hard with or without herpes. Staying social and dating (no sex involved) just movies, dinners (gentleman always pay) or picnics or coffee. Can't catch the right one if you don't put your pole in the pool ;) ! Hugs Aces xo

I'm of the same opinion as SheisBlue and Aces.. but I will add: Don't limit yourself to dating partners that know that they have HSV. Many people out there are not even aware that they have the virus and others don't know about it but would be okay with having a HSV+ partner. It's hard enough as it is finding the right person. That person might be HSV- and could completely love you if only he could meet you.

What type of HSV do you have, as determined by blood test? HSV 1 or 2?

Exactly, my husband of almost 25 years is a Muggle, means non-herps man :) . Even back then many didn't know exactly what herpes was, so we just lived and had no time to dwell on herpes.

I had a blood test done, results were positive for HSV1 and HSV2. Thank you for the words of support, I really appreciate it. :)

      I’m not following mate. You simply do not have herpes. Do you care if your partner has herpes? Has she tested?
    • IloveCoco
      I know it’s genitalia because I had my outbreak there and sore was swabbed as hsv1 genitalia.
    • WilsoInAus
      Hey mate, really glad you sought out the swab. Regardless of what it all is, I hope it clears and you get back to your normal self soon.
