Dating with herpes simplex 1

I believe I'm quite a positive person, except for Monday mornings ;) I'm ambitious and always looking for the next project no matter how big or small...

Passionate, loving, kind, idiosyncratic (like most? ) People tell me I'm sexy and look young for my age. I feel I've had a pretty interesting life so far and am rarely bored and often amused (or outraged) but...

One of the most difficult things I had to do was call former boyfriends I may have exposed (think it was dormant in my system for quite sometime, I honestly did not know). I think all the readers should take a second to put themselves in your shoes for a moment. That’s 50 MILLION people, a majority of whom don’t even know they’re infected.

None of these guys started screaming at me, they THANKED me and said they would get tested – none of them had it -YAY!!!! And while I’m not an expert in herpes, per se, I do know a number of people who have it, and continue to lead rich, happy, limitless dating lives. Because one second you’re saying “No way” to a guy with herpes, and the next, you’re praying that a guy doesn’t judge you for this one minor thing. According to Herpes.com, 50-80 percent of the American adult population has oral herpes. The scariest part of this whole thing is the staggering ignorance about herpes – a disease that undoubtedly affects someone that you know. Well, let’s just say that I have close friends, clients, and ex-girlfriends who have genital herpes, and none of them are traumatized, hospitalized or ostracized because of it. Just know that if you have the disease, you may be entirely asymptomatic, which would mean that you could potentially transmit it without knowing.

I like to enjoy life to the full and believe we only get one shot at it so enjoy it while you can.

My work allows me to bring out the best in the most vulnerable members of society but I need a man that has the capability to be my solace, my home, and make me laugh...

And if you do have symptoms, they are easily controlled with the use of drugs.

I have seen men post on various dating sites where they come right out on their profile stating they have herpes.I am lots of fun with a very sarcastic and dry sense of humour.Would love to find someone who takes me for who I am. I am very caring and dedicated when I find something I believe in. Well, I've found myself on here probably the same way as everyone else.This is why it is important to be cautious when dating with herpes simplex 1. I have gone through "the conversation" a million times in my mind.
