She had had sex with him a few times before she ever got the courage to tell him that she had herpes. So many women with herpes never disclose to their partners until its too late.In this case, the boyfriend was extremely loving and compassionate towards his girlfriend, but the trust he had in her was ruined by her withholding her status and exposing him.The Talk: The most glaringly obvious benefit is that dating on a positive singles site can help to lessen the fear of having The Talk and disclosing your herpes status.
Dating within the herpes community is a great first step, but I encourage women to get out there in the open pool if things don’t work out in the “small pool”. Transmitting Herpes To A Partner: For many women, their greatest fear is transmitting the virus to an uninfected partner.
It will eat away at one’s soul and rob a woman of her right to be have a happy and healthy relationship. Small Pool of Fish: If a woman chooses to only date within the herpes community or from herpes dating sites, then she limits herself to the number of potential partners that would otherwise be interested in dating her.
This is the main reason why I never used a herpes dating site.
The truth is that herpes affects all sorts of women and the stigma of it being “dirty” and “shameful” is totally unfounded.
The fact is that herpes affects at least 1 in 4 women and statistically speaking, there is absolutely no way that 1 in 4 women are “dirty”, sexually irresponsible and promiscuous.
