Dating a girl with herpes
I don't know how our sex life would be since she has herpes.
I like her (24f) and we've been on a couple dates and hooked up, but I stopped when she told me she had herpes. Edit: I don't know why I'm being downvoted, I just want opinions. OP, highly recommend you educate yourself on herpes prevalence and typical effects on those who have it. the number of genital infections caused by HSV-1 is now thought to be about 50% of first episodes of genital infection.
I wasn’t prepared when he suddenly dropped a bomb on me: He had genital herpes.
It’s also important to remember that HSV lives in your central nervous system, where it hibernates until it sees a good opportunity, such as when your immune system is weakened, to come out and multiply (causing an outbreak).
The outbreaks are merely expressions of an internal virus — the virus does not live on the skin itself.
Something to consider but ultimately the decision has to be yours and yours alone.
You have to respect that she at least put it out there before anything happened. I've heard of a few stories where the girl just neglects mentioning it because there is always that chance the guy will instantly leave.
