Hi everyone. I was diagnosed about one year ago after a bad first OB. Sometimes I forgot about it because I haven’t had an OB since the first one and I think that being concerned about hsv is wild because it’s a mild skin condition at worst. A lot of the time it’s no big deal to me but the social stigma surrounding it is so frustrating. I’ve been seeing someone for almost a year now and we’ve never slept together, he’s just too afraid. Sometimes, like tonight, it just gets me down knowing we really have no future together because he’ll never get past it. And sometimes it just makes me feel so small knowing he’s afraid of my body.
Does anyone have dating tips? It can be such a mild virus but navigating the social stigma can feel like such an uphill battle.
