Herpes dating stories
Herpes dating stories - dating a recovered meth addict
For the poll let's say that the person is someone you'd definitely consider dating under normal circumstances but I'm not going to say that they're otherwise perfect (if you answered "no" to the poll but would be willing if the person was indeed otherwise perfect feel free to share). So yes, I'd be willing to try, and if things worked out well and we were really into each other, I'm sure we could work out a way to try to keep the transmission issue under control.
And if it seemed like too big a hurdle to overcome, then we could go our separate ways. One of my best friends has had to deal with that for over 20 years.
It is a hassle I'd rather not ever have to deal with.
Why the heck would I want to risk having to mess with cootchie sores for the rest of my life? One of my best friends has had to deal with that for over 20 years.
Why the heck would I want to risk having to mess with cootchie sores for the rest of my life? She has been married for 20 years, and with her husband for years before that.
They are careful during outbreaks, which she can always feel coming on, and her husband has not gotten herpes in all those years.
I think she said she takes the medication that is used during an outbreak, not daily.
Another friend has asymptomatic herpes...outbreaks, no symptoms at all, but has the potential to infect someone when the virus is active.
But since she has no symptoms, and didn't even know she had it, she has no idea when to be "safe".
She informed her current partner when they started getting to that point in the relationship, and he educated himself about the slight, very slight, according to the doctor, risk, and decided he was okay with that. Another guy she was starting to date before her current fellow read all the information, got educated too, but decided he was too afraid.
He had other issues, though, too, which made her decide to end it with him herself.
I have done a ton of reading on the subject myself, and the risk of transmission isn't as high as you might think.
And the severity of outbreaks varies, from horrific to meh.
