Personals dating herpes relationships dating girl messed up family
The only true way not to get anything is to never have sex on any level at any time....does that not seem a little backwards and stupid?
Since one in four women have herpes and one in five men have it, it seems only natural that you would discuss it and your choices as you would with any other disease that your partner could or could not receive by sharing body fluids with you on all levels in all places and at all times.....
I would be curious as to how they got it, then the situation may be different but still, I have a feeling I couldn't.
.......can choose to take the risk but then what if your relationship fails for whatever other reason, all you will be left with is an unpleasant reminder of what you one will have to decide how valuable one's state of health is!
Of course it is responsible for one to let the other know if you have Herpes and to discuss all the pro's and con's of what you have and what you can or can not do.
Babylonia.....stated: What gets me is that people are so frikkin worried about genital herpes and post lewd and disgusting posts on a thread where their opinions aren't appreciated. Remember too that oral herpes is just one different strain from gential herpes and if your partner has HSV-1 on their mouth, you CAN VERY WELL get it yourself - even genitally. Remember that when you are dating someone with a cold sore.
And if you want to cut out your dating prospects of people who carry either strain (BTW, you can also get HSV-2 orally), you're looking at removing over 85% of the total population who either has oral OR genital cold sores from your dating pool.
It's time we wake up and stop with the puritan attitudes and discuss these things openly. Instead of getting upset and mad about being asked to share and getting a blood test.....should all make it just one more thing to do when dating and wanting a relationship that involves sex.
I know that having oral sex can transmit many things too, both for males and females, yet many do it without thinking at all.
I'm a very clean healthy person and would expect the same of whoever a potential partner may be. I know TWO PEOPLE who got it from oral-genital stimulation (and no, I never gave it to anyone, lol).
Here is a response from one of the last herpes threads and what Babs said then and I responded to her....the way..is one of the best on here with thinking and saying her mind and I respect her much.... I know that this can happen to my partner if I'm not careful and feel that 'tingling' on the corner of my mouth. Did you also know that HSV-1 genitally is the most prevalent way of getting genital herpes these days?
even coldsores creep me out I remember seeing the pictures in some of my mom's medical nursing books (I used to try and gross out my friends with the pictures as a kid)and then again when I was in college and was taking some anatomy/physiology and other bio related courses I got to see some more of the outbreaks... i studied up on it and found there are shields available to prevent infection. supposedly they work but i still would be leary of it. Apparently he was doing a little sleeping around and brought home someone else's luggage. don't think the prevalence is as high as 1 in4, although it might be that within a large city..even so, if a person is nice enuff to disclose it then its up to the other partner as to what the next step should having this infection, i would have to decline and probably end the relationship as much as it may hurt!Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
