I’m New Here But I Read About Ppl Being So Worried About It And I Just Wanted To Say It’s Not So Bad

I have been HSV type 2 (and type one i suspect also) for more than ten years. Getting divorced now and back on the dating scene. I have had the talk seven times and NOBODY has freaked out yet. I have been intimate with 5 out of the 7 women. Other two women choose not too because of herpes ??

Who knows, but nobody has freaked out. I’m new here but i read about ppl being so worried about it and i just wanted to say its not so bad.

Id like to talk about the fourth woman who i had the talk with. Third time we got together/date …. back at her place i thought things were going really well. So well i figured we better stop the action and have the talk right then. I tell her and her reaction was kinda nothing. So i asked her what she thought about it and if it was a big deal. She said no and do you know why ?? Because you are a nurse i imagine ? No because she has herpes too.

Wow ok cool. She was wayyyyyyyy more worried about telling me. She was scared i was going to run back to our mutual friends and tell them. Lol. We bonded very quickly because of it but she ended going back with her husband. Oh well … It was a great experience sex wise and makes all the talks that i will have for the rest of my life that much easier ;0)

Might have the talk tomorrow night again too. Its just a part of me that has to happen before intimacy. It gets easier to tell every time.

I will follow up this post if i do have the talk tomorrow. I will put this here right now. Kinda a blind date thing. So far just emails and one phone call. While i was looking at her picture today i felt what i will just call the hand of God touch me on my shoulder. I felt very secure that this talk will be the easiest talk yet because she has it too. I will let you know if God was with me OR it was just a cool breeze lol.

Herpes is not half as bad as it might seem (promise!) and it would be awesome if folks could realize this. The biggest challenge we all face is Perspective. We are here to help people adopt a more positive outlook toward this very common virus.
