Cold sore dating site
I have gone through "the conversation" a million times in my mind.
After going through the normal flip out and that my dating life would now consist of Ben and Jerry’s and DVD’s every Saturday night, I’m ready to get out there again.

And I wouldn’t be dramatic, just simply say, you need to know something, I have herpes.
I control it with medication, but no matter how you slice it, it is what it is.
(IE, they can shed the virus with no visible outbreaks). Well, they are generally worst case scenarios or perhaps first outbreak photos (the first is usually the worst…once your body develops antibodies it generally goes quiet and you may never have another OB).
If you ask a Doctor about it, they will tell you it is a “nuisance skin condition” …. To them, it is a very insignificant issue – you will be given a script for antivirals if you need it (if you are having an outbreak or have a partner to protect from transmission) and they will show you the door. a viral skin condition that happens to show up in a really inconvenient place. I promise you, while the first OB’s are generally not fun, you junk won’t fall off if you get it and you usually end up with only minor OB’s after the first one or two occurrences. BUT, even more important is the fact that I *KNOW* I have it and I can do a LOT to keep you from getting it. Many who contract herpes get it from someone who didn’t know they had it …
and some may have followed my more recent experiment with disclosing my status on my online profile on OKCupid. Your chance of getting it from me (assuming you are H- …and BTW, there is a really good chance you have not been tested unless you specifically ASK for the test) is less than 2% - the SAME risk you take when you get in a car for having a fatal accident. In fact, I recently came out to everyone because I’m tired of the undeserving stigma that comes with Herpes.Well, I'm getting people asking how that is going, so I'm going to keep you up to date here as things develop. I am currently working with others on a project that will increase public education and awareness about STD’s including Herpes.First, my statement as seen on the profile: The most private thing I’m willing to admit I am a full believer in transparency so here it goes: First, if you got this far and you liked what you read, please read this section all the way through before you pass judgment.
