Online dating ?? Hsv1

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone.. just recently started looking into some online dating sites. I’m curious if anyone noticed that on sites for ppl with herpes that there are barely anyone on there with Hsv1. I seen mostly HSV2 profiles. Is this because more ppl have Hsv1 verses HSV2? I’m just wondering why this is this way. Most profiles indicate that their condition isn’t a big deal only skin condition?? Anyways any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I’m no expert and I’m fairly new to this (not even certain that I have H yet). However, from what I understand recurrences of OBs of GHSV-1 are less common and from what I have read it is less likely to transmit while symptoms are not present than HSV-2. Obviously HSV-1 isn’t any less of a herpes virus but perhaps those whose genital herpes are caused by HSV-1 generally feel easier about sharing the information with potential partners; which could also be because so many more people are infected with HSV-1 as you pointed out yourself. I mean that’s obviously all just speculation but perhaps that is why.
