Dating and hsv2
I'm also getting tested myself again just to check that I'm not already HSV2 positive - again I understand the national statistics of 25% incidence and there is a good chance I have it and don't know about it. but it doesn't help me create a good decision framework for the question, 'do I continue seeing her or not'. For the next 3 days while I'm waiting for my own test results, I'm not likely to share this decision framework with her. So taking a chance on her now might not work out very well for me in the long term if this relationship doesn't pan out (and I'm unlucky and catch it -but considering our chemistry, I expect there will be significantly above average freqency of sexual contact...). Do I go with the bird in hand, or move on (and hurt a decent person in the process)...If I turn out to be positive, I'm sure I'll continue seeing her. If I'm negative, I'm inclined to reject her. I don't know how to think and act in a manner that is right by me, right by her, and is also pragmatic. that are not personal attacks on what I've had to say.I had barely finished my first semester of college when I found out I had herpes.A high school friend and I wound up taking our friendship a little further, and 20 seconds into the act that would change my life forever, he stopped.It's free to join to our site for Herpes and HPV Dating and Friendships!We offer Herpes Dating, Herpes Support, herpes personals, and HPV personals, with dating and community forum for people with Herpes and HPV, we are here for Herpes and HPV Singles and Couples. Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the herpes simplex viruses type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 (HSV-2). Most individuals have no or only minimal signs or symptoms from HSV-1 or HSV-2 infection.I accept that I'm flawed, imperfect, selfish etc., but I'm self-aware enough to know it when my selfishness is likely to manifest as meanness to another person.I'd like to limit the damage I cause to others... As a male, if you do nothing but avoid sex anytime she has obvious genital symptoms, you are 96% likely each year NOT to contract hsv2 from her.If she takes daily suppressive therapy, you use condoms and avoid sex when she has anything going on genitally, it's a 99% likelihood each year that you won't contract hsv2 from her.
After the 2nd enounter, she mentioned that she is HSV2 positive. I'm pretty desirable for a niche set of people (who are in turn interesting to me), this is a rare crowd.
Second, don't wait until you're just about to have sex -- in which case the attraction may be too strong for either of you to think rationally and act responsibly.
If in the past you tended to start a new relationship with sex, you now might want to change your approach.
it's not likely you contracted hsv2 from her from 2 encounters.
Honestly you are much safer with someone who knows that they are hsv2 than you are with someone who doesn't get tested to know that they are infected.
Now that you know you have genital herpes, you're out of the dating game, right? There's no reason to stop looking for love and fun.
