Met A Special Herpes-Positive Someone Online, but What Do I Tell Others?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


I've been a member of another herpes support site for a few months now, and I've met a great guy on there. Things are still very much in the beginning stages, but in the event that this turns into a LDR, what do I tell others? I don't want to keep him a secret, but everyone doesn't exactly need to know what he and I have in common/how we met! Any advice is welcomed :)


*luckily, my immediate family knows of my status, so that's out of the way, but his family doesn't*

Hi Serendipity,


Shall we say it is serendipitous that you've found us? Rimshot please.


Well, what do you mean "what do you tell others?" You tell them the truth. One day you were walking down the street and he was in town on business. As you passed him looking longingly into his eyes, a bus careened onto the sidewalk and like Clark Kent he sprung into action, lifted you up into the sky, and rescued you from certain doom. Then he took you to dinner. From that day since you've been inseperable and have spoken on the phone at each and every opportunity.


How'd you meet? Who cares. Tell your friends all about eachother and the qualities that make you a dream couple. Once they have those details, the minor "How'd you guys meet" will go away like a whisper in the wind.
