  1. Hi there, I've been dating my boyfriend for 9 months, and he has HSV2 (he's had it for about a year and a half). I've been tested very recently, and do not have HSV1 or HSV2. I am 27 and he is 25. He told me 3 dates in. He was so amazing about it, and I was so blown away by the fact that he told me prior to us having sex that I continued to date him. I'll be honest, I think part of me was crossing my fingers that a few more dates in I would find him less appealing, but it didn't happen like that. Fast forward nine months, and I'm in love with him.... We're still not having sex but it's getting increasingly difficult to refrain. He doesn't pressure me at all, in fact he hates talking about it; it's like he'd rather not deal with it. When we do talk about it he just shakes his head and is seemingly convinced that he will pass it to me. I've read the stats and I know about daily antivirals, condoms, etc...I know my odds of meeting someone else who is positive if we were to break up... I would LOVE to talk to another person who was/is in my position, or any advice you can give me on dating someone with HSV2... Or if you have HSV2 and are dating someone who doesn't, it would be great to hear your perspective. I don't want to give up on this relationship, but I can't help feeling like relationships never last forever and am I dooming myself to a life with herpes by being with him? Thank you so much for your help. I really appreciate how supportive this forum is. Hula
