If you are need of help or advise or would just like to talk to someone, the community at HSV Dating Central is ready to help you.
Our site offers plenty of features with variable search options, being a 100% confidential community for those living with Herpes (HSV 1 or 2) and other STDs.
With more than 450 million people all over the world diagnosed with Herpes, HSV and other similar conditions, the truth is that it is becoming more and more common and people may not be so quick to judge you after all.
But use your best judgment as to how physically intimate you want to get before telling.
One thing could lead to another, and you might find yourself in an awkward situation. The person you're seeing may beat a hasty retreat when he or she finds out you have genital herpes.
And it's important to understand that genital HSV is very common, affecting about 20% of the U. If you hope to be sexually intimate with your date at some point, you may feel like you're keeping a secret.
If you are one to be candid with people, you'll want to blurt it out. There are some things you should reveal about yourself right away -- for example, that you're married, or that you're just in town for the week -- but some things are better left for the appropriate moment.
Keep dating, and you will find someone who wants to be with you regardless of your condition.
There are certainly some who wouldn't mind keeping the intimacy level just short of doing things that could transmit the virus.
Of course, there might be people who will reject you, but the right person will never do so.
