Feeling responsible for my ex girlfriend

Recommended Posts

I recently had a catch up with my ex-girlfriend (someone whom I’d given herpes) and she mentioned to me that she’d recently had a couple of one night stands. I didn’t ask for any details but I’m just concerned she’s not been safe. I can’t imagine her disclosing this whilst drunk and she’s in turn putting them at risk. Hearing this has put me in a difficult situation because I don’t want to get too involved in her decision making. I’m in a new relationship now and she might misconstrue what I’m trying to say but it puts a really bad taste in my mouth thinking about the risk to others. She was never phased when I told her I have it even giving her the facts but this leads me to believe she doesn’t see it as a big of a deal than I always have. 

My current girlfriend would just tell me to leave it to her, and I don’t want me getting involved to cause any issues between us but I feel it’s my moral duty.

Any advice welcomed 🙂

@chapstick1520 I know, and this is what others would tell me too. In my new relationship I was honest from the start and we’re stronger for it. With my ex I didn’t tell her immediately but later down the line after we’d been intimate (wrong of me I know) but I somehow feel this could convince her it’s okay to do the same. I’ve learn from it but I’m not sure she has.
