How to Date and Have a Love Life after Herpes

Postby johnsonli » Tue Aug 05, 2014 7:50 pm

It is no secret that herpes is a sexually transmitted disease, and people who suffer from the disease may effectively consider themselves out of the dating game. However, there is absolutely no reason you should stop looking for love and fun in your life. In fact, there are ways in which you can safely begin to date and even have a healthy, fulfilling relationship despite your disease.

For most people who find out they have herpes after they are already in a relationship, the most difficult thing to do is to talk to their partners about it. There is constant fear of being abandoned after confessing about their condition. However, if you hope to be sexually intimate with your partner, you have to broach the subject sometime. It is important to consider that the disease does not detract from all your other qualities. There are a lot of things you can still do without any fear. Kissing, fondling and cuddling, for instance, are completely safe and have nothing to do with your disease. You can have sex when you do not have an outbreak, so discussing these options with your partner can be really helpful.
