i found out i had herpes back in july. only had to disclose to one person who was a friend (possibly more) well it turned out he couldnt handle it. That was a blow to my confidence. I met my current boyfriend just over a month ago. I had known him in highschool and just reconnected randomly. i fell for him right away. we decided when we first started talking that we would take things slow and hold off on intimacy. He asked me to be his girlfriend officially 10/22 at this point i knew it was time to have the talk. it was the first time i was disclosing to someone i cared alot about and was so fearful he would walk away. i told him everything and he did have a look of concern but then he held my hand and told me that herpes doesnt define who i am or how much he cares for me. i started crying right then and there. and then he grabbed me and kissed me so deep i felt it in my toes. i am head over heels in love with this wonderful man and i dont think i would be in this place without all of the support and wonderful advice on this website! thank you so much for everything :)
