My fiancé has never seen me with a cold sore


Recommended Posts

This may sound ridiculous but it's a genuine fear I have. I'm about to get married in a few months however my fiancé has never actually seen me with a cold sore. I'm concerned of his reaction. 

He does know I get them. One night we were at my parents' house and my parents brought up my embarrassment whenever I do get cold sores. He didn't say anything. I didn't see his reaction due to the fact I was staring at the ground hoping for some kind of escape from my awkwardness. I acted like it was no big deal but on the inside I just wanted to crawl under a rock. 

Hes a great guy. Hence why I'm marrying him however I am scared of his reaction the first time he sees me with a cold sore. I'm not scared of him rejecting me and calling things off but more so just being grossed out by me. I'm clearly very insecure.  Do you think maybe if I let him know how insecure it makes me feel that he would be more understanding? I'm not even sure how to bring up the subject. 

So he knows I get cold sores but has never actually seen me with one. Has anyone ever been in a similar situation and can offer advice/support?

Well married is for life, if he cant handle you with this he will not able to handle the marriage.

And he is your soon to be husband, which we expect to be the one who closest to you and your main support. If he trully loves you he wouldnt bat an eye. 

I think better let him know before you seal the deal, let him decide.

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
