Im dating someone with herpes

Do NOT share this email address with any of your non-herpes friends.

Major bulletpoints: You trust him and feel he needs the truth if the relationship is to progress. He will not catch it since you take drugs and carefully monitor the situation.

And make sure you have your facts ready in case he’s curious.

You want to make it clear: this is a fact about you, and it’s something you have under total control. You can literally have this conversation after dinner or a movie while walking, so as not to make the situation feel too pressurized.

This should be like talking about how your father died, or how you had anorexia in high school, or how you didn’t lose your virginity until you were 25.

All of those things might be sensitive and relevant, but they don’t have to be dealbreaker-type issues if dealt with effectively.

The question is how do you explain this to someone else who is freaked out by this kind of stuff? I think the best answer is to treat your condition matter-of-factly.

The bigger deal you make out of it, the bigger deal it becomes.
