Dating for people with cold sores
Many people are unaware they have it, because they don't experience symptoms or because they attribute the symptoms to something else. Years later, I've come to the realization that he knew he had herpes, and that is the reason he stopped in the midst of our sexual adventure.
During an outbreak, blisters or sores appear on or around the genital area. The nurse taught me how to manage the virus, but managing my personal life was another story. Our friendship, unfortunately, ended as quickly as the act.
I didn't date for awhile, but inevitably, I met someone.The whole experience made me more comfortable with the fact that I have herpes and gave me the confidence to begin dating again.It was as if I had just re-entered mainstream society.He said he would know if he had been with someone who had herpes. In the end, instead of rejecting me, he chose to continue our relationship. But after we had sex, he would always wash himself like a doctor scrubbing down for an operation.I could hardly blame him, but it wreaked havoc on my self-esteem.
