Dating for herpes positive

We've had a few sexual encounters that are just shy of intercourse, but needless to say, I understand that this is enough exposure to transmit STD's. And the sexual chemistry is the best I've felt among all people I've dated (and feeling is mutual). On the other hand, I'm not the most (socially) desirable person to date (from a religion/color/ethics/politics/social alpha status and sexual appetite/preferences perspective).

Sometimes it's because you don't dress "right", sometimes it's because you don't make "enough" money, sometimes it's because you have 4 kids from a previous relationship and their mom has some serious "issues" that she thinks the whole world should have to deal with and other times it's because you told someone you have genital herpes.

With 1 out of every 4-5 adults having hsv2 in the US, it's really not the drawback you are envisioning it to be. I obviously don't have as much depth of knowledge in this subject, and my (incomplete, inaccurate, internet based) research seems to tell me the stats are 5% risk to 15% risk (depending on the site, source of stats etc). If I know I have it, I'd feel obliged to disclose it.

Chances are good that it would result in rejections, which can hurt, or just limit me.

i was actually explicit in saying that my own stats were likely to be in error since i don't have much experience or depth on this subject. what i meant was that they were both leading me to the same conclusion - that the risks are rather low. it sounds like you think i'm dismissing graces's stats, but i'm not.

But yeah, I suppose it's important to differentiate 'miniscule' from 'low', and 1% is 'miniscule'. i was actually explicit in saying that my own stats were likely to be in error since i don't have much experience or depth on this subject. what i meant was that they were both leading me to the same conclusion - that the risks are rather low.

  1. News they have a picture of Ashlee Simpson engaging in some light public displays of affection with a dude who goes by the name of Craig Owens. Now Pete has a real reason to be extra angsty during shows. This source says that Craig is comforting Ashlee and helping her through this difficult time. One minute you're crying on their shoulders, the next minute you're using your tears as lube to ride that shi* and fuc* the hurt away.
