You should educate yourself before making a decision, and that's hard with herpes because there's so much misinformation out there, and doctors will steer you in the WRONG direction more often than not. Aside from a complete lack of a physical relationship, if there is no sex then there is no hope of kids. My reasoning is this: they could find others who have herpes, and they wouldn't have to worry about spreading it because the other person already has it. When I first got a sore I was in a big panic -- I didn't know what herpes was --i went to a clinic and they told be all sorts of horror - i told my boyfriend and he took me straight to bed and had unprotected sex with me.

I have genital HSV, not sure if it's type 1 or 2 because you can get both anywhere on the body. THere is no place on earth so fine as in a man's arms. I would happily be a platonic friend to some man who would put up with that, but regretably I met a real man and he loved to touch me but changed his mind when he found out I had Herpes.

The idea of choosing to date someone with it or not is ridiculous, because you don't have a choice if they don't tell you, and many people are too ashamed to tell. People think they can do a visual check to see if a partner has got it, but there is something called asymptomatic shedding. I wish I weren't so emotional and I try to be sensible but it hurts so very much when someone instinctively reacts that way to you. If you or someone close to you is currently in crisis or in an emergency situation, contact your local law enforcement agency or emergency number.

Why would I risk getting a life-long disease for someone I just met even if they seem to be a nice person?
I know most people would call me narrow minded, but realistically, does anybody want a STD?
I would just like to say that people should be a little more compassionate if a potential new partner reveals that they have herpes. I did for him what I could but I don't think he liked it much and I don't think I'll hear from him again.
Chances are, you've been sleeping with infected people anyway, because they say 90% of infected people don't know it, and 9 of the other 10% aren't going to tell you. Right now I feel really down, really dejected and rejected.
This is the virus present on the skin with absolutely no symptoms whatsoever, it can happen up to 5% of the time, and you can never tell when it is.
