Dating when you both have hsv2


TinkerbellAustralia

Recommended Posts

I've had Hsv2 for 9 years and have had experience with dating with this condition, though i have never actually met anyone else with it.

I'm currently chatting online to a guy online who also has Hsv2

We are both single, similar age and live not far apart.

What's the problem, you say?

From his pictures he seems attractive  but I'm not sure we are compatible. 

He is super confident and adventurous. I have low self esteem and definately not adventurous .

He's a social butterfly and I'm a homebody. He likes outdoor pursuits and i like indoor activities. 

I'm scared that we are too dissimilar . If he didn't have herpes, I doubt he would be someone I'd date.

Haven't had much luck with  dating non Hsv2 partners in the past, though. 

Can opposites really attract? 

Should I pursue this further?

I really can't deal with more hurt and rejection.

Hi "Tinkerbell".... sometimes opposites do attract but often they do not.... however, since you've done nothing more than just chat online, my humble opinion is to see how things progress and see f you may have some things more in common.... if you live in the same area, perhaps you may want to meet up and get to know a little more about each other through conversation in person instead of doing it online.... of course there's always a risk you won't be compatible but, I think it's best to give it more of a chance than just chatting online before you make a decision on whether you want to pursue a relationship further.... best of luck....

Thanks CHT, i appreciate the advice. I think I just need to build up the courage and meet him. Stop being scared and take a chance. Or I might just become a hermit...lol

      Hang on @tweetsoc this is just self-indulgent self-delusion. What is super tricky about HSV? You're only saying that because of the super trick situation you are in having cheated on your partner, stop deflecting, how does that help anyone least of all yourself? You do not know you are going through an issue with HSV; it is pretty much certain you are not.

      The first article is from 'The Sun' which is just a sensationalist rag. The second article deals with a correlation between HSV-2 and cardiovascular issues that may cause ED. Did you actually read it? NONE of the participants experienced ED at the time of infection and 0.5% self reported EDS after 12 months. How does that fit with your 9 days. Herpes infections do not cause orchitis, that's just a myth that is started and perpetuated by people on web forums. There is no medical evidence of this. It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with me on HSV. There is no subjectivity in the facts that I present.

      None of this changes the fact that: you cheated on your partner and you can't cope with that; and you do NOT have genital HSV. Yes I do have to lecture about messing up because you are not dealing with it. You are creating a world of confusion from fake and/or obscure accounts of HSV in order to not deal with it. Whether you consider it nasty or not is exactly the point - this is the key thing that is wrong with you - when are you going to address - man up! Who has tested years later despite a negative WB?

      Thanks tweetsoc,  I haven't taken anything but ibuprofen. My doctor won't give me anything without the lab work. I get tested on the 17th and if negative again 4 weeks after that  I will look into prostatitis and definitely ask him about it. Best of luck to you. I hope you get some relief. Are your symptoms constant or do they come and go? It's strange how the brain works. Sometimes this drives me crazy and sometimes I have just got used to the feeling of hot sauce in my pants. good luck to you.
