Dating with Herpes
Dating can be very hard at times but it can turn out to be more challenging if you have an STI. Herpes is one of the STIs that affect a lot of people throughout the world. One of the things that make herpes dating hard is sharing the information with your partner or future partner knowing that the STI is incurable and there is a backstory. According to the recent statistics, HSV is very common because it can be transmitted through other means besides sex. In fact, half of the population in the world is estimated to have HSV-1 which is mainly transmitted through oral contact. Therefore, the virus can be transmitted when an infected person kisses or gets into oral contact with an uninfected person. This is one of the challenges of living with herpes and dating. The second type of HSV is transmitted through sexual intercourse and it is a rare type.
Just because someone is living with herpes does not mean he or she cannot date or their image is tarnished. Herpes is an STI just like any other and one can find love even if he or she is infected. One can get an STI if the partner was not faithful or if they’ve had sexual intercourse or any intimate relationship with an infected person. However, since viral diseases are incurable, the only option is to open up and find someone who will accept you the way you are.
HSV dating requires more communication, creative intimacy and self-restraint from both partners because it is quite challenging. One of the challenges you will face is stigmatization from society, probably your friends and even some family members who are not understanding. You are supposed to understand them, cooperate and give them enough time to accept the situation. However, if they are not changing or they are not supportive, it is advisable not to focus on them because they will affect your life negatively. If you have HSV-2, you need to be honest and tell your partner about the infection instead of them finding out on their own. When you share the information in advance, it shows you respect them, love them and you are willing to do everything for their love. On the other hand, if you fail to tell them and they find out after or before you’ve had sex, you can break their heart, trust and probably the love they had for you. It is an indication you are selfish, not serious and you are not committed to the relationship. The key to effective dating is to find the most appropriate time to let your partner know about the virus.
If you've just started dating or you are planning to have an intimate relationship, you should give yourself sometime before telling your partner. Waiting for a period of time not only helps you understand your partner but also create an intimate relationship. When you are discussing serious matters or you have known each other, that's an opportune moment. You should avoid sharing the info after having an intimate relationship because that would ruin the relationship. If you already have the virus, you shouldn't lower your standards or get frustrated because you can also date and find love. There are numerous dating websites which help people with herpes find love. In fact, these websites can help anyone with STIs find love because there are potential partners who are looking for you even if you are infected. Finally, consulting with a doctor is recommended especially if your partner is not infected. You can understand the virus better thus avoid infecting your partner or live a productive life.
