That's what I'm doing. Better to keep expectations low. That way you don't stop living your life and don't end up dissapointed.

yeah, but its quite sad there is no cure for it, ok I have to accept it, but I will never be as happy has I was before I got infected, because this constantly bothers me, its a big cross I have to carry to the rest of my life, I feel like the guy from the Metallica song, I feel like The Unforgiven.

I know how you feel everything was looking great for me before i caught this I was moving i had just moved into my new apartment  was hitting the gym and dating. Then one day i ran into my giver and nothing has been the same. Tried dating but it never worked out i guess I can't sit around waiting for  cure. Life will pass me by I guess i just have to make the most of it s hard as it is.

You are the only person who is putting that burden on yourself and stopping yourself from leading your life.  Having herpes does not stop you from doing anything it is only your mind and thoughts about it.  I totally would be grateful for a killer but at this point in time you need to just keep moving on.

Yes, let's hope the live Theravax vaccine (Dr. Halford) continues to perform well in human testing.

And don't forget the very promising live Einstein vaccine (Dr. Jacob) and the subunit trivalent vaccine (Dr. Friedman), which are both preclinical. We also need to hear from Sanofi about HSV529.

And maybe someday a CRISPR cure will be available.

I am not being jealous, but I dont care for a vacine, I just want a cure, a vacine will not do anything for me, but if even a vacine is not discovered yet I think we can all lose our hopes on a cure, at leat in our lifetime.

      It should be noted that the Gates foundation was part of a venture capital group that gave Genocea $30 million in support of their vaccine development efforts in the period when their lead candidate was an HSV-2 therapeutic vaccine (GEN-003): https://xconomy.com/boston/2012/10/10/genocea-snags-30m-from-gates-foundation-vcs-for-new-vaccines/ They have also provided 30 million dollars to the University of Washington's HSV efforts.  This time specifically on research into whether suppressing HSV results in a reduction in HIV transmission: https://honeycomb.click/topic/77503-donations-to-fred-hutch-center/page/21/?tab=comments#comment-493474  Far from inactive in HSV research they provide significant funding in the context of reducing HIV transmission.  It's a well established fact that genital HSV greatly increases the probably contracting HIV from an infected partner.

      Human trials starting next year?  Not even close. It will be several years.

      Sounds like X-vaxs' biggest concern is prevention and erradication secondary..... 🤦🏻‍♂️

      It may be small scale but at least it shows me that I'm by far not the only one who isn't willing to disclose to casual partners anymore. The damage for oneself is too high to make it worth it imho: - seduction becomes difficult as guy if they know in advance - you're very likely to become a gossip object if it happens within your social circle - you get abandoned before it even starts to get intense - you end up lonely and depressed after being abandoned for such a reason Still, that doesn't answer the question if it's better to disclose properly out of nowhere during the relationship or wait for the symptoms to appear and pretend to be surprised and fake the doctor diagnosis afterwards. At the moment I think the true disclosure would be less likely to be accepted by the partner, but in case it works it would feel better in the end because there's less of a secret kept in the long run... and of course there's lower moral burden when disclosing earlier because you're handing over responsibility of risk exposure to the partner.
