He Doesn’t Care If He Gets It Because He Just Wants To Be With Me For The Rest Of His Life

Hey, so happy to hear that! I, too, told my serious boyfriend of 3 years, not knowing how he would react. Surprisingly, he said the same thing:

– Jeez, you scared me to death, I thought you had cancer or something.
– HERPES! I have herpes!
– So? That’s ok!
– That’s the worst thing!!!
– You are crazy.

He was sweet, got me flowers the next day, even said he doesn’t care if he gets it because he just wants to be with me for the rest of his life. Of course, I don’t want him to get it if he doesn’t have to, and I’m still trying to figure out how to start having sex again, so if you have any updates on your life, keep me posted!
