Nervous for disclosing

Recommended Posts


I was diagnosed with GHSV2 in January and have not dated anyone since. I was recently set up with someone online and we have been talking every day. We will be meeting in October and I am already super nervous about disclosing. I have never had to do it before and I am soo nervous. So far, this man seems amazing. But I can tell I’m trying to hold myself back a little because I’m nervous to put myself out there for rejection. One important information can you recommend that I have ready to give him once I disclose? I do not take antivirals, yet, but will once we get closer to being intimate. I also have had only one outbreak since being diagnosed.

Hey there! Congrats on what sounds like an awesome prelude to a possibly equally awesome relationship. Soak it up. Enjoy the prelude. Enjoy getting to know each other and opening to more and more vulnerability.

To your question, the ebook will be super helpful in getting your mind/perspective right. And the handouts summarize all the facts you’ll need. Here’s the link to download them: https://www.herpesopportunity.com/lp/ebook
