Disclosed but was weird

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've been an hsv2 carrier for 5yrs now. About 6yrs ago I dated this guy for a few months but had to end it because he had to relocate for his job. He kept contact with me throughout the years and when he found out that his job was relocating him back to my area, he contacted me and asked to see me. I've blown him off from a year because I felt embarrassed disclosing to someone I dated before, that I got hsv the time we've been apart. Somehow he kept coming back, didn't give up, so I decided to give it a shot because I'm still attracted to him and have a lot in common and I can't let H interfere in my life.

We've been dating for about a month now and everything has been great. So I decided that yesterday was the day to disclose!

I started my usual disclosure talk and told him that I carry hsv2, he then said that's ok and asked how I felt when I was diagnosed. I told him that I felt betrayed and ashamed but after reading and learning about it, it's so very common and gave him the statistics and he said yeah, a lot of people have it.

What I feel weird about is that usually when I disclosed before, they were more curious and asked questions and also comforting but this time it felt like he brushed it off. We continued the evening like normal, but the energy around us felt weird.

I don't know if I'm overthinking about this but would appreciate comments from people that had similar experience when they disclosed.
