He Was Completely Fine With This And I Think Telling Him May Have Brought Us Closer.

I’ve spent the past year being super picky about who I would date knowing that I would have to confess that I get occasional cold sores. Well, I’ve met a wonderful guy and we’ve had the “talk” and I was completely surprised by his lack of a reaction. It seemed like he didn’t understand why I was even disclosing this to him. I even said, “that’s it?” and he goes “well, how did you think I would react”?

Once I confessed that he was the first person I had ever told he seemed to understand where I was coming from and he thanked me for telling him and acknowledged how uncomfortable it must have been for me. In any case, he was completely fine with this and I think telling him may have brought us closer.
