New to the site- looking for some help

Recommended Posts


I have been living with herpes type 2 for about 4 years. My ex girlfriend and I found out that we had it at roughly the same time. This obviously put a lot of strain on our relationship and neither of us handled the situation correctly. I got very down and in a very bad place where I basically felt like my sexuality had been robbed from me. She refused to talk about our situation and acted like nothing had happened. We broke up a few months ago and I have moved to a new city. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good way to meet other people with HSV2? I have essentially pulled myself out of the normal dating scene because it terrifies me when I imagine giving this disease to someone else. It has really turned my world upside down and if I did that to someone else, I would be devastated. 

Does anyone know of a good dating site or other support groups to meet other people for dating? I would like to get my social life back and actually meet women where I am not constantly dreading the inevitable outcome.

There are secret facebook groups and positive singles.  Dont limit yourself.  Normal dating sites have women with hsv.

      Hey hi202020, the Varivax vaccine definitely removed the neuralgia for me, at least so far (fingers crossed). My signs of HSV1 infection after the blood test came back positive in December (with a high IGG of over 55) were: horrible flu symptoms initially (in February) with swollen lymph nodes, followed by almost non-stop, super painful genital neuralgia, and one oral outbreak in March. However, the neuralgia has completely disappeared since the end of April (about a month or so). I had the first vaccine on April 10 and the booster shot on May 19, so about a week ago.

      Hey Mackie I have the same neuralgia that you do, did you find anything that helped you? Did you try any vaccines? I’m feeling desperate as I’ve had non stop neuralgia/pain for 4+ months after contracting GHSV-1.

      Got my igG results after 13 months and it is negative I think I need to put this behind and may be rhink do some shitty infection that is causing this itching in genitals and on face. Just an FYI my Western blot at 7 months post exposure is negative.

      Exactly. Plus some people don't seroconvert ever or for a long time, so it's even larger than that.  Also, it takes longer for hsv. To show up on wb than on a commercial igg test.

      Even Terri says that sensitivity of WB for hsv1 is 95-96%. So somebody has to be in this 4-5%...
