Herpies virus dating
He had been infected as a teenager and was used to managing outbreaks and mixed reactions from partners, which explains why he was so patient with me.
The fact that he'd been honest about this pretty major thing before we'd even met was a testament to how trustworthy he was, and maybe because of that, I continued to pursue him.
In fact, the same could be said for most of the sex I’ve had since I was diagnosed with genital herpes two years ago.
This didn’t make sense, as I’d never had unprotected sex in my life.We had agreed to meet in the middle: the campus of our alma mater in Connecticut.What we hadn’t anticipated was that because we weren’t students anymore, we didn’t exactly have a bed to call our own.When we met offline, we became intimate very quickly, but we abstained from having intercourse.
He told me I could take as much time as I needed to feel comfortable having sex with him.My newfound herpes education led me to make a choice: I was going to have sex with this guy.At that point, I had real feelings for him and didn't want to walk away.After brushing up on my herpes facts, I felt incredibly vulnerable.
