I have lots of guilt and trauma over sex already, thinking i should have been more chaste. But since i got lip sores i dont even dare kiss anyone. There is a guy i like, we know eachother, but he doesnt know of the sores yet and i dont dare kiss him. 

He is a widower with a child daughter which he gives peck kisses on the mouth at times and im terrified of infecting the both of them at once. I think id kill myself if that would happen. I love him and the girl. We will spend the new years holidays together for a few days. Im afraid something might happen. What shall i do? 

My own son i dont dare kiss anymore either, we just hug and he kisses me on the cheeks. :'(

I dont think i can kiss someone again without my mind shouting "herpes!". Im sad...

I can imagine how emotions are in your head now. 

Talk about with the guy you like, if he already invited you to spend new year´s with them because it sounds like he likes you. 

So, bring the subject and don´t be afraid. My best wishes.

      Omg you crack me up. Being reckless is sleeping with a condom and not having any other sexy foreplay before just in case? This was not a random dude I just met at the bar that night, he had been talking to me for 3 months before.  The lawyer was reckless for not disclosing or taking antivirals or whatever. I trusted him for being so nice to me.

      How could I have gotten hsv1 on my genitals as a child??? I’ve never had a coldsore either in my life. My body changed after I had sex with that idiot, which sucked  and it’s not pointless to know who did this to you when in some states it’s considered a crime to transmit an std to another person.

      its very very very hard to know who gave it to you..my drs told me is pointless. and to come back positive for hsv1 on blood test, its alsaw kind of dumb because most people get it as children, and they dont have any outbreak..so could be the lawyer..or not...

      I am in a similar situation. I experience the dizziness every day. I feel fatigued most of my day. I get tiny cuts in the genital area and lips. I get burning/tiny red dots in the genital area. I get tingling sensations in different areas. Valocyclavir did not work for me. I have a tiny, white bump on my lip that crusted over. All tests (no Western Blot) have been negative. Blood work is negative. This all started after I had unprotected sex.   What are your oral outbreaks like?
