  1. I agree it’s a disease, I just don’t like that phrase because it makes it seem a lot worse than it actually is (for most people).
  2. I hate the phrase “risk your health” it sounds like you are asking someone to put themselves in a life or death situation which in this instance couldn’t be further from the truth. I don’t think anyone should be shamed for not wanting to engage with a person who has hsv. I believe where the frustration comes in is that a lot of the times the people who “bounce” as you put it, do so because they are uneducated about the virus and believe the stigma. To walk away from casual sex is one thing but to walk away from a meaningful relationship that could make you happy for the rest of your life is ridiculous.
  3. That’s easy to say to someone who has no problem getting dates, get rejected and try again, but when you really struggle and only date once in a while those rejections are BRUTAL. I’m at the point that I’d rather lower my standards and be with someone than be alone forever.
  4. @100918 can I just say how awesome you are. You literally have changed my whole attitude about myself this weekend and you have no idea how valuable that is so thank you!! @Teach28 hang in there, I’m confident this will get easier and will be one of the least of your concerns in life.
  5. I feel like my dating pool has been significantly reduced since not everyone will be ok with HSV. Do you feel you have to lower your standards to be accepted?
  6. Thank you for your response and thank you for replying to a lot of the posts from people, it really makes me feel better. I’m older at 45 and this guy is 47. The funny thing is he has HSV1 and knows a lot about both strains but views type 1 oral as no big deal (he didn’t disclose it to me) but type 2 is the plague which is how I think most people view it. Rejection is tough and it’s just disheartening to know I have a future of these disclosures and rejection until I find someone accepting, if ever.
  7. I was falling in love with someone and very excited about the relationship. Told him about my HSV2 status and he suggested I use a dating site for HSV+ people because they are more “my kind.” He didn’t say it maliciously but meant it would save me the disclosure talk and rejection. I’ve been crying for the last 3 hours straight. I’m starting to think all these success stories are made up because I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t look at you with pity and disgust when they find out. I know you are going to say he was not the right one but how many times can you put yourself through this before it has a seriously damaging mental toll?
