Nervous following Disclosure

Recommended Posts

asdfz

Hey, I've been seeing a guy for a couple weeks and he's so great. I always struggle with when to disclose about HSV2 but I went ahead and got it over with two nights ago.  He was really nice about it at the time and said no one had ever told him that before and he wasn't sure how to react but it didn't change me as a person. I reached out to him yesterday and he said he was stressed with work.  Not sure if I added to his stress. Haven't heard from him today.  Just curious if it's best to disclose and then give the person space?  Is it normal for someone to pull back? I don't want to hover but my stomach is killing me and i'm really anxious about it.  Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

Sorry to say he has definitely pulled back to think. There is little to do but wait. He has to come to you if this has any chance of working well for the two of you.

Put a date in your head that marks a point where you’re moving on. I think another two weeks is plenty.

Figured that might be the case. I guess I'll just wait and let him make a move. I don't want to be with someone who's scared to sleep with me or make me feel bad about myself b/c I've already done that long enough.

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂

      I just found out that the person I suspected I got this shit from has been having symptoms for YEARS! For years and never saw a doctor or got tested. Even after I was diagnosed he wouldn’t get himself checked. He said “if I do have it too, it just means we’re meant to be together” like what in the actual f*ck!!! This guy is a friend of a friend and has been wanting to date me for a while but I was never interested...until one lonely drunk night he ruined my life!!! Even after my diagnosis he lied to me about this. He told me he’s never even suspected he had a problem. I had to find out from our mutual friend that he’s had symptoms for years! I want to smash his face in with a baseball bat!
