Disclosure success story

Hey guys. First I want to say what a wonderful community this is and how I’m so glad I found you all. I’ve only recently learned about my GHSV1 diagnosis. And then I immediately went on vacation. While I was there I met someone. Someone that I connected with in a way that I’ve never before connected with another person. I had spent a lot of time with this person and I knew that he was wanting things to get intimate. So naturally, I was very nervous, freaked out, etc. I was beside him and I told him, before we go any further, there’s something I want to tell you. I told him that I knew my last significant ex of 5 years had a history of cold sores and I found out that I now also carry the virus in my genital area. His reaction was so? It’s really not a big deal. I was absolutely shocked, even though I went into the conversation with the mindset that everything would be okay and work out in my favor. I told him that when I saw the doctor for it, he even noticed that it was a very mild and didn’t look like anything serious.


So, ultimately he accepted it and me wholeheartedly. We remained inseparable and have stayed in contac since. I 100% realize that things still may not work out because of the distance between us, but it *won’t* be because of the herpes. He told me tonight that I am something very special and he’s so glad he had met me and that he’s willing to make me a priority. It makes my heart happy.
