Disclosure to new dating partner

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I am looking for abit of advice please, I was diagnosed with HSV-2 a few years ago, and I feel it affected me a lot. I haven’t slept with anyone since, however I have just gone back in to the dating world and have met a lady, we have a great connection and have met up five times now. I feel we are nearing the next step, and it is my duty to explain to her that I have the virus.

Would anyone be able to offer me any advice on the best way to raise the subject please?

Many thanks!

Thanks for the info, I read through one of your ebooks which helped me gather information!

I disclosed to my new dating partner on Friday, I was able to fit it into a conversation previously that I wanted to make her aware of something on the weekend.

When I raised the topic, she was extremely nervous about what I was going to say. I explained to her that it was important for me to tell her.

All went well, but I am picking up that she has changed her communication tone and gone abit distant. I know it’s only been a couple of days, and maybe my mind is playing tricks on me l, how do you recommend going about this situation?
