    Okay, this needs to be cleared up…First of all the herpes simplex virus is nothing more than a basic skin condition. Chicken Pox is a strain of the herpes simplex virus and most people carry the dormant virus in their body their entire life, but you dont see people getting all high strung about that. HSV 1 affects the mouth area and occurs in 80% of the population. The clean looking nice wonderful people you see walking around with cold sores have HSV 1 and are having an outbreak during that time HSV 2 occurs on the genitals and approx. 1 in 4 people have this and the majority are not even aware they have it. Its possible you could have been exposed to either HSV 1 or HSV 2 and not known it, contracted it and have not had symptoms. HSV 1 is the most socially accepted and you really should not get so hung up about it. HSV 2 is still common yet more stigmatized because people automatically think all those with STDs are nasty slutty dirty cheating lying people – THEY ARE NOT! (at least not all). Sure some people make bad decisions (like his ex wife), but then again some of us trusting naive people unfortunately are on the other side completely unaware that the person we love is out exposing us to everything out there. You should first off be impressed that he cares for you, so much that he is willing to share something so personal and private with you before you two become intimate. He obviously thinks very highly of you and you should be flattered to have landed such a good catch. That is a huge step and speaks well of his character. You can have healthy children (worst case scenario you would have a C section if you contracted Herpes and had an outbreak), you can lead a happy healthy life, and with proper precautions you can greatly reduce the chances of passing it on. You people are making it sound like a death sentence and its ridiculous. As some who has herpes and has successfully dated I can tell you the more educated you are the less frightening it sounds. Ignorance plays a lot into fear. This guy you are talking about sounds great (although he might be rushing in a little too fast). You need to understand that him having herpes does not change the type of person he is. Would you rather date an awesome guy with a common and treatable STD or date a lying cheating jerk of a man who is STD free (at least for now)?? Herpes or not I would choose the first. Good men are SO hard to find. Try to understand being in his place where he waited faithfully and trusted his wife while she skanked around town bringing him home something he did not deserve. Its very similar to what happened to me. The fact that hes not had an outbreak is a very good sign and it shows his body is doing well at keeping the virus in check. YOU CANNOT CONTRACT THE VIRUS IF THERE IS NO ACTIVE OUTBREAK. The virus lays dormant and it is impossible to contract. You are perfectly allowed to take time to think about this that is totally appropriate and acceptable; did you ever stop to think how he reacted and what he thought when he learned he had HSV 1?? He basically went through the same experience you are going through now the shock and questioning… I flipped the fuck out when I found out and threatened to kill my ex, but Im cool now because I understand precisely everything about it and know how trivial it is compared to a persons character, morals, personality, faithfulness, etc. Have you ever been tested for an STD?? There is a chance you could have been exposed and not realized it. Its not like people have I have herpes written on their faces. The majority of spreading is due to people who dont know they have it and thus take no precautions. I used to think I could never get something like herpes because I was too careful, too pretty, too smart, too picky, It took one unprotected encounter with a man I really loved (my boyfriend) who had forgot to mention he slept with someone else during a vacation… whoops! Should I have used protection?? Of course! Had I known he cheated I never would have slept with him. I trusted him enough to not use protection once and this is what ended up happening. Perfect example of why partners should not lie and cheat and why you should always protect yourself. That happened when I was 23 and I am now almost 25. I was devastated and for a long time thought I was dirty and no one would love me, but with time that changed the more I was educated and I was lucky enough to have two great relationships with guys who were totally educated and saw me for me and not just a girl with herpes. This post is a little long, but please think twice before you toss this guy away because hes not perfect – no one is. Take your time, get educated, communicate with him, and be safe. If this guy is as good as you say he is you will kick yourself when you give him up for something as trivial as this. Be more concerned with the things he can control like his character and personality and not wi
