single parent dating atlanta idaho - Dating someone who gets cold sores

As i single mom & finally opening the door for love. There is no reason to sleep with him right away, take your time and get to know him first.

I met the sweetest, nicest guy & recently he just told me he has herpes. If after that time you want to have a sexual relationship then use protection.

The question you should be asking is not “Why should I date someone with herpes?

I am afraid of being that ranting feminist with herpes who seems to think herpes is great. It perpetuates a preconceived notion of someone’s moral character and individual worth based on a skin condition that itself is not a barometer of value or happiness.

The harassment and mocking of “Men’s Rights Activists” and strangers on Twitter has gotten to me. How silly, this girl thinks we’re bigots for not wanting to contaminate our junk for some desperate, shitty lay. To let someone’s STI status be a game changer is a form of discrimination.

My first outbreak was quite painful because it coincided with an infected spider bite, but now I show symptoms so rarely that I pose no credible risk to my partners 99% of the time.

In retrospect, if my ex-boyfriend had known he had herpes and told me before we started dating, I wouldn’t have done anything differently, and I would still have herpes today.

It’s human nature to think it, and to wonder, and to actively make the decision. But in asking me this question, an actual person with herpes, you are shaming and insulting me in the name of needing help deciding.

I don’t want to be the selfless Mother Teresa of herpes.Here’s another pet peeve of my email inbox: when a man (because it’s almost always a man) asks me if he should continue seeing this woman he’s been dating who just told him she has herpes.Sometimes the question is data-based, about what transmission statistics are real. When you ask me questions about if you should date someone with herpes, I know you’re looking for an expert opinion.I know couples who have gone years without transmitting by being honest with each other about when they are having outbreaks.The person most likely to give you herpes is the person who doesn’t know they have it in the first place. Now you'll have it and men aren't as accepting as women are when it comes to these things. 1 out of 5 people do so it's great he was up front about it.
