Scared to death of his reaction

Recommended Posts

HG08

I've only had Herpes for about 2 months now and I've met this guy. Already I can tell that I like him. He's funny and sweet, and is always there for me. He asked to be in a committed relationship but I'm so scared that he won't accept the fact that I have herpes. I don't know what to do. I know if he doesn't accept it then it wasn't meant to be, but I'm not ready for that rejection.

Help me! What should I do? I have to tell him, there's no doubt about that, but when. He has started talking about us having sex and I wanted to tell him then but couldn't bring myself to tell him. Plus we were talking on the phone and I don't want to tell him that way. Please help!

He wants to be in a committed relationship with you, so that's a very good start.

You must tell him before sex. Make sure it's not literally before either. Try to do it face to face (something I have not been able to bring myself to and end up emailing them). Face to face, as others have pointed out to me is better because you can definitely gauge their reaction better and be on hand with the facts.

I have a feeling things will be fine here. Tell him when you're ready and the timing feels like you had better.

Good luck

      Hi, I have the exact same thing and have been to a gp and sexual health clinic and it hasn’t been resolved. Did you get any answers?

      a week ago, I went to lab and get my test done for STD. everything is clear on the test except HSV 1.   Ranges are  <0.90 - Negative 0.90-1.09 - Equivocal >1.09 - Positive   And My result for HSV 1 seems to be too high    it is HSV 1 IGG, TYPE SPECIFIC AB 56.90 H ( OUT OF RANGE ) I was paid for this test (full std) everything came back negative except hsv 1, after I seen the result, I called my doctor to made an appointment to discuss this matter. I will most likely request a test from my doctor and have him to check this out.  It's been 3 years I was in USA and had sex just a couple times.   I never had unprotected sex since like 10 years. I was in USA for 3 years now and like i said never had sex unprotected almost for 10 years. Received oral for 5-6 times.   Here is the picture :  The purple marks on my legs are stretch marks due of doing weight lifting. I do have so many of them on my body. As you see in the picture, they are FLAT. not like a bump or pimple. I checked so many pictures on internet but I think mines don't look like herpes but I just want to know your thoughts about this.
