How to Disclose in College

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with GHSV1 about 7 months ago. I ended things with the guy who I was with at the time (for reasons not related to HSV) and I have had difficulty coming to terms since. I am a sophomore in college and find it difficult due to the emphasis on casual sex and hookup culture. I am not into that; however, it makes things difficult when it comes to disclosing. I have recently been seeing a guy casually and am afraid that he will eventually want to turn it into a relationship. I am terrified to let him know about my HSV because I feel like any college guy near my age is not ready for that kind of commitment. I am a very confident and open person yet I feel so vulnerable when it comes to my HSV. How can I disclose it to him in a way that proves that it is the stigma around HSV that makes it seem so terrifying? I fear rejection, especially because he is friends with a lot of my friends and I do not want them finding out the reason why.
