My first herpes disclosure talk was a success!

Recommended Posts

I never thought that I will be able to tell a potential partner that I have herpes. But I did! And I was successful! He still wanted me..well we didn't have sex because he is at the other half of the world. But he is coming over! If he will be able to get a visa haha! Anyway, it felt so good to finally let it out. It wasn't bad telling him at all. I mean, he was really understanding and didn't judge me. He told me that I am still me. So I guess, the stigma is there but not everyone thinks that way. There are people who will understand. And I will keep those people in my life. :)

I'd say that he not only understands, but actually sees you for you, beyond a simple skin condition. Congrats, dilemmagirl! I'm proud of you. (And dare I say "Told you so"?) :)
