Dating outside of the positive community

Recommended Posts

scaredat46

Hi everyone, 

I'm polling a little here... I contacted GHSV1 a little under a year ago and naturally the fear of dating possibilities has weighed heavy on me. The guy i was with while i had my initial breakout got tested and per his admission the results were negative. I didn't press for more because i had no reason to not believe him. He stayed with me in the relationship and as we took precaution it seemed like a normal relationship. We ended the relationship a few months later , he pulled away still unsure if it was related to my disease. My question is now single for the past 5-6 months i've pondered the idea of getting back out there a little but i'm afraid and wanted some feedback on anyone who has been where i am or care to share their dating experience in or out of the positive community.... thanks for listening :)

You will find you will get different responses as evrryones situation is different. what I would say to you is get out there and date and don't make assumptions that you will be rejected because you don't know another persons status or how they view it.  I am 50 and have had HSV for 2 years and I have dated and no one had a problem with it.  I find it is about education and how well people understand the virus and the risks.

Thank you @Lisajd for the response. It's so new to me and while my ex boyfriends response wasn't typical. I'm fully aware that rejection will sometimes come with the territory. I'm simply afraid it can be a very lonely place. I'm still coming to terms with the life changing events. Perhaps i'm not even ready to go out and put myself in a situation where it will magnify my skin issue. Your input has given me a little confidence.

I dont see it as a huge life changer.  Its sometimes the assumptions you make as opposed to reality. Remembering how common it is is important. I view rejection as their loss and they will prob end up with it anyway

      @DJwah curious about your results. anything you can share?

      Thanks. Did you experience general discomfort when urinating for quite a while after the excruciating part was done, or was it instantly over after the week with antivirals?

      Thanks for the response.  I have been tested for HSV over and over for 5 months (IgM 1 time and IgG over 5 times) and been negative on everything, including a swab of a red rash and of an irritated urethral opening.  My very first symptom of anything was VERY painful urination that lasted about a day or two if I recall, followed a week or so later by a sore throat, chills, night sweats, and fatigue.  Things settled for maybe a few days, then came an extremely itchy anus/rectum with redness for weeks, itchy groin with no redness at all, then eventual red, itchy rash in groin and increase in redness on penile skin with mild itching. Never had a lesion or blister anywhere from what I've seen. Nothing seems to coincide with typical herpes, but herpes isn't always typical from what I've learned. Creams of all kinds from doctors are not helping at all.  I seem to have a new bug no one has ever come across (doubtful), or an atypical case of herpes or something similar.

      No, Sebi was a fraud. This article is an interesting summary. https://www.thebody.com/article/dr-sebi-did-not-cure-hiv-nipsey-hussle-documentary If you’re basing the possibility of ‘cures’ on Sebi, I’ve got a car for sale that’s had one careful lady driver! Its simply fact that of the 40 billion people who have ever had HSV 1/2, not one eradicated it from their body.

      I'm amazed people do not think outside the box and to go to great efforts to reply to me saying "it's not curable" I simply cannot understand. If you truly believe Western Medicine and they say it's not curable then whatever they claim in the future you will live your life with their scientific proof. I simply have posted here to hear from like minded people who are juicing and doing colonics to see what their results are. People who have had cancer have cured it with a alternative lifestyle becoming vegan etc so if cancer is cureable who can't you open your mind and just think could hsv be curable? did you know Dr Sebi was taken to court because he claimed he cured someone with Aids? He turned up with 25 people who he cured of all illnesses and was let off. So please spare me your thought's of "It's not curable" as I will never belive that. Unless you have some experiences with juicing and colonics you wish to share then do not comment on this thread. Will no longer reply to closed minded sad people like yourselves.
