Please excuse my poor grammar and expression .

Rule number 1: Love yourself unconditonally

Have a positive attitude

Educate yourself fully about the disease. You will better be able to share it with others. Share it in away that it takes prejudice people have in their mind.

Learn to not fear rejection and judgement because its  human nature hun and even before you had herpes I am sure you have experienced being criticised or judged wrongfully or rejected.

Do you know the importance of dating? You are getting to know someone to see if you are compatible for an intimate relationship. Let the person get to know your interpersonal qualities ( if thats the right term to use) thats the most important thing first. Less than 10 dates is not enough to get physical. I know you miss sex and all but this is a sensitive situation. It takes time. After person falls inlove with your personailty then you inform them of the herpes.

If accepted . Yay!! 

If rejected. Yay!! If the person cannot accept you, they never saw your worth in the first place. Move on. You already love yourself so a little rejection isnt going to discourage you. You know whats funny, some them have it and dont know OR   answer this question , before you had herpes , would you have accepted someone with the illness?( RETORICAL) If they are nice person but they are not willing to accept. You should be able to understand.
