hi all, I wanted to come by and give an update to any newbies that are looking for the light at the end of the tunnel.It's been almost 2 years since I contracted hsv-2 from an unprotected encounter with a good friend (yay surprise! He was the 4th person I'd ever slept with, and I had only just gotten out of my 4 year long relationship 2 months earlier. From a health perspective, I had a terrible primary that lasted about a month, rolling into small outbreaks every few weeks for about 6 months. From a dating perspective - and this is why I wanted to give an update.Michael Krychman, executive director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine.
We broke up at the beginning of this year, for reasons not related to herpes at all. I'm still not dating - I don't know what I'm looking for and I need to give myself some time.
So, this is me disclosing to men that I'm attracted to but not necessarily interested in something more long term.
Chances are, genital herpes is not on your Christmas list this year. It's not the most fun STD (unlike chlamydia, which I hear is downright hilarious). The virus has been destigmatized in recent years, thanks to the fact that one in six American adults has it.

"Being in a rut usually comes from having sex the same way all the time, either in the same position, place, or time, or if it follows the same format," says Claire Cavanah, co-founder of Babeland and co-author of Cavanah suggests exploring erotica or porn together as a way to come up with new ideas.
In the here and now, you can stay off Facebook and try to avoid the temptation to do any kind of masochistic stalking. "You can also use a yes/no/maybe list as a communication tool," she says. "A simple trick is to change the time/day/place where you have sex.
And if I'm any indication, then the disclosure has a good chance at success. Theres too much life to live, don't spend it scared of what might happen.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
