It’s been over 20 years I have not dated…yup very lonely and sad…Honestly, I don’t know how to tell and don’t want to see that look on his face when I say btw I have herpes…Honestly I am tired of all of the negative stigma attatched to Herpes and HPV as well. about 1 in every 5 people have it or have (or had) some kind of STD. Life goes on, but people who are ignorant about it, make people feel that they’re not worth shit when they try to live a “normal” life.Because HPV 16 may not cause outer symptoms but it causes cancer if left unchecked. As most of us caught what we had by not sleeping around, but from someone we were in a committed relationship with who we trusted. How is having an ailment as common as a cold gross? It’s uneducated people like you who publish lame stories such as this that cause such misconceptions about a simple virus that millions of people have. because one day you no you are going to have to tell them.You people have NO IDEA how you can easily catch it. ignorance is why people who do have it are afraid to come out and be honest about it!!! so how do i meet a nice lady that may have it to and we dont have to say we have it.It isn’t that transfferable if your careful…and I think most people know and accept that pretty well. If it’s true she has it, it only adds to her beauty as strength is an attractive quality.I came across this by accident and I am so glad I did…I want to thank all of you for your supportive comments…I feel so much better after reading everyone comment…thanks If ure trying to meet sum1 there are websites such as If sum1 likes u, don’t be afraid to open up.Im not saying go ahead and tell ur business to everyone you feel that ure attracted to, but life is all about risks. Your life is different now, but ure not disgusting because u have it.
The story, though highly judgmental and poorly informed, does underline the importance of using protection when engaging in sexual activity. I can honestly say, I have genital herpes, and you should be ashamed of yourself for judging people who have it, especially since none of us ASKED to be infected, but instead were either victims of people who didn’t have the decency to inform us, or by partners who didn’t even know themselves. 99% of the time i forget i have it because everyone is right, it IS symptomless! i used to watch the valtrex commercials and snicker and poke fun at them… its not the end of life…life is what you make of it.
i never in a million years thought that herpes could be the culprit.
