Honestly it is better to tell sooner than later. If you wait too long he might think you betrayed him. Let him get to know you before you tell him so you are more than a girl with an std; you are no different inside now than you were before. Herpes doesn't change who you are. It is very hard to tell someone you have it, but the anxiety of telling is much worse than the telling. Do your research so you can answer his questions and give him solid information. Try not to cry and be positive. It is not going to be as hard as you think it will be. If he gets up and walks out or doesnt take the time to listen than he isn't the kind of guy you should be with. He might react well and tell you it doesn't matter but you have to be honest with him. Honesty and trust are very important in a relationship. When I told the guy I am with he reacted well. We went over info for about 10 mins before he just closed the computer and said "it doesnt matter... it won't change the way I feel." People are all different but if he lets this get between you than he isn't worth the time. Good luck and let us know!

I to am getting ready to tell my special someone. It's still early on. Having a STD really does affect things, but who you are as a person isn't changed. For the most part, It changed me, but for the better. Getting it actually straigtened out my life. No more random drunken parties, or sleeping around. I no longer do drugs, or feel the need to drink to have fun.

And the way I look at it now is, you can do something other people cant, you can screen a guy. Face it, if the guy just wants to be with you so he can score, then he'll flip out and leave. But if the guy is interested in you as a person, it wont affect him much. If a guy is interested in you as a person then sex is a side benefit, rather than the focus of a relationship.

Some times it helps to look at things from different point of veiws. All tho its hard to think positive, look at it from a positive point of veiw. Also before telling him think about what you would want to hear if it was being told to you.

I plan to tell him when It's just me and him, but at a time where he can leave afterwards. Such as I won't tell him on a night I plan to sleep over. And it has been strongly reccomended to not wait until right before something is about to happen to tell him. he may then feel betrayed. You can always role play to pratice too. (sorry for the spelling, I'm half asleep here and everything looks like it's spelled wrong). Your more than welcome to send me a private message on what you would say to role play it if you think it will help.

Remember, I'm right here with you, in the same boat, first time telling a guy I'm dating.

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.

      Good question- someone here maybe Wilso will be able to elaborate on this, but I do believe there needs to be a certain amount of copies detected before it can be infectious.
