"special dating sites"

Recommended Posts


After posting something on one of these sites about having genital herpes, I received a response from a guy that was meant to be encouraging; however, he mentioned that there are special dating sites designed for people who have HSV. I know he intended to make me feel that I was not alone, but this mention of a particular site for those w/ herpes made me feel as though I have some "abnormal disease" which will not allow me to date "normal" people...and that I will have to date someone who is going through the same thing I am as no one who is STD-free would want to date me. I realize he didn't mean to make me feel hopeless and depressed, but that's how I took his post. I don't want to feel like I am any different than any other 26-yr-old girl out there. Does anyone understand my way of thinking here?

I really think he did mean well. Many people feel the hsv positive dating sites are a great option because then they never have to have "the talk"....it's a given.

As far as you feeling as though you have an abnormal disease, well, there's no skating around the fact that you now have a sexually transmitable virus. That certainly doesn't mean you can't date someone std free. However it does mean you must disclose your hsv status before becoming sexual with someone you date.

I have a feeling there are many other 26 year old girls out there with herpes...guys too!

If you are newly diagnosed, don't worry, you are going to be fine! try to focus on taking good care of yourself and enjoying life..

      Is someone able to kindly explain to me what synergy products actually do without opinions or disagreements on its effectiveness? For example what ingredients are involved and how does it aim to target the virus. Can't find any info online. Hope someone can help. Many thanks

      Why is it your worst fear to have GHSV-1?

      Not sure if this has already been mentioned before, could we donate to his lab? Hsv specifically?

      It can be very difficult to diagnose I do not know the lab discussed here but I have read about sexual health clinics that no longer use the blood tests for this reason of false negatives. Even swabs can be hard they were in my case.  I know I have it and never resorted to the biopsy.

      Do your own research and consult with GP's. I would assume you have this until its totally ruled out.  

      I read about a person on this site who tested neg on the IgG and pos on the weston blot.

      Please do your own research.

      If it is an issue why not speak to admin about creating two separate threads...one for those looking at natural management and "supposed" natural cures and one looking at medical breakthroughs. That way both interests are served, no one is offended and people who wish to look at both can. No one is excluded and everyone included. Those who want to stay with the medical threads can. Maybe there will be less issues that way. 

      Personally I would prefer not to engage with those who are seeking vaccines and gene tech ect esp if they are nasty or condescending and prefer to support and encourage like minded without the excessive debates in a supported enviro.

      Just putting it out there.
