Dating With Herpes and Working Through It
I have had antibodies for herpes for over 20 years, but only recently had my first outbreak. I had been diagnosed with HSV 2 two years ago. I was terrified when I found out that I would never be able to find someone who would understand what I was going through and want to be with me, a feeling I am sure many people on this site have had.
After a year of struggling, I joined a herpes dating site PositiveSingles.com. I was skeptical about online dating websites but within the first couple months I received a message from him. We were living about an hour and half apart at that point in time, but decided it would be worth it to meet up. We started meeting up every weekend after that.
Although we live 3 hours apart right now we are still making those weekend commutes and it has been one of the greatest relationships I have ever been in. It is incredible to have have someone who knows what a struggle finding out you have HSV can be and is supportive.
I just wanted to let people on this site know that you should never give up and you deserve someone who won’t judge you but who can really be there for you.
