I Should Have Told Him So Much Sooner. It Really Is True That If The Person Loves You They Won’t Care.

I told him last night. I was shaking; crying- told him how I contracted it and about how my ex boyfriend was abusive. Told him I loved him and explained I could protect him from getting this and how low the transmission rates were. He was so calm and collected- and just said ‘I understand’ then he started crying and saying how much he loved me and he didn’t care. And how he thought I was going to say something so much worse- that he thought I was going to say I didn’t want to see him anymore. He said it doesn’t matter to him and it doesn’t make me dirty or anything like that. Then he went and got tissues and wiped all my tears away…

Feels so surreal. He just said I don’t deserve this and we’ll get through it. I should have told him so much sooner. It really is true that if the person loves you they won’t care.
