Asymptomatic hsv 2 dating

I have little to no interest in being with someone who doesn’t think I’m worth getting herpes from. If you are not willing to brave the risk of getting herpes, you are not worth my time.

If my STI is a deal breaker for you, your ignorance and cowardice is a deal breaker for me.

Although individual symptoms depend on your overall health and the strain you carry, for many folks herpes is an uncomfortable initial outbreak and mild recurrences, if any.

When it came down to the brass tacks of who I am, there was no decision to be made at all.

In the past I have made room for the discomfort of strangers who do not want to date someone with an STI.

One of the most romantic moments of my life was when an old partner told me that I had so thoroughly de-stigmatized herpes for him that he saw contracting from me as an inevitability he chose, rather than a nightmare I should have panic attacks over (and although I continued to have said panic attacks, I never did transmit to him).

A true partner, a true best friend, accepts all of you.

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.

To you it may seem reasonable, a matter of self-preservation. If you let someone’s herpes define who they are as a person and the role they will or won’t play in your life, you have reduced them to their STI status alone.

The facts on herpes are actually quite clear when you do research online: herpes transmission is not that simple, particularly when both parties make an effort to use condoms, antivirals, dental dams, and so forth.

I know couples who have gone years without transmitting by being honest with each other about when they are having outbreaks.

Finding out down the road that their partners has herpes.
