The Hardest Part of Dating With Herpes is Knowing When to Tell


Love is a relationship of expectation, romance, and discovery. There is no denying the fact that it is little embarrassing to disclose your partner that you have a fatal sexually transmitted infection. Well, but you must tell your partner you have genital herpes at the very initial stage of the relationship or certainly before you get into any physical relation. Every relationship is its own particular snowflake, and you have to discover an approach to the conversation that works for you.

Don’t Psych Yourself Out

If you are diagnosed Herpes do not be afraid of rejection. Not every disclosure would be a disaster. You may have experienced bad response initially but instead of fixating on the risk of rejection, focus on how awesome you are. Let your partner know the positives you may bring to the relationship. Be honest about your sexual health. If you are doing the right thing, who wouldn’t want to date you? There are many who would be comfortable getting involved with someone with Herpes.

Be prepared to offer honest information

You should know how and when to disclose. If you do not have an idea of how to answer questions about your herpes, there could be a misunderstanding. Register with an online dating website for Herpes individuals. These sites help you to gather knowledge about the sexually transmitted disease. It is always recommended to come to the conversation armed with knowledge. The sites allow you to upload your profile and picture. You may mention your likes, dislikes, type of partner you are looking for, your dreams etc. As these sites are meant specifically for herpes individuals only, so less chance of embarrassment. Be confident, a smiling charmer who can graciously share information.

Choose the right time to say

Select a private place to disclose the truth. Go out for a romantic dinner and look for the right moment to share the information. Give your partner time to think. Some people need time to accept whether they are comfortable getting involved with someone who has Herpes. Do not insist for physical relation at the first in-person date. Avoid getting physical during an outbreak. It is not an unfair demand to ask someone to date you despite your disease. Don’t be shy or express your fear of negative response. You should have a partner who adores you and treats you the way you deserve to be treated, not considering of your sexual health.
