Dating a girl with an std
i've done it before, my ex of 2 years had HSV-2, and she was caring enough to tell me before we had sex. i got tested every 2 months, just to stay current and clear.i don't know, i think that it shouldn't stop one from dating someone with an STD, only because it's about the person, not the virus. Now that you know you have genital herpes, you're out of the dating game, right? There's no reason to stop looking for love and fun.If you are one to be candid with people, you'll want to blurt it out. There are some things you should reveal about yourself right away -- for example, that you're married, or that you're just in town for the week -- but some things are better left for the appropriate moment.It's up to you to decide the right time to tell a date that you have genital herpes.The facts on herpes are actually quite clear when you do research online: herpes transmission is not that simple, particularly when both parties make an effort to use condoms, antivirals, dental dams, and so forth.I know couples who have gone years without transmitting by being honest with each other about when they are having outbreaks.Sometimes the question is data-based, about what transmission statistics are real. When you ask me questions about if you should date someone with herpes, I know you’re looking for an expert opinion.Sometimes the question is esoteric, about whether or not he truly knew this woman in the first place. You’ve never given herpes any serious thought before and here I am, a woman with herpes and a blog, who has so generously spilled her guts to the Internet about what it’s like.
Visually, all of her female parts look beautiful – unlike how Hollywood would have you feel they appear when someone has an STD or the worst-case-scenario pictures they show you in sex education class.
I know this guy that actually married a girl with the herps.
He didn't have it himself at the time, but he didn't care and accepted her with open arms. He's a better man than me that's for sure, because I don't think I can date someone with the herps, even if I was the meat between a Mila and Natalie lesbian sandwich.
And sometimes it’s the classic entitled bullshit I face on Twitter all the time: I’m not a jerk for dumping someone who poses a risk to my health, right? It’s just a simple question to you: should I date this person, yes or no?
Why on Earth would I knowingly choose to put myself in danger like that? But to me, it feels like you’re asking me to justify my value.
Last time I checked, it takes two to hook-up, and as a result, I’m willing to assume some accountability too.
