If you struggle with herpes simplex virus, you are certainly not alone. Aside from the pain of herpes outbreaks and the social stigma that still exists about herpes, there is the issue of dating.
Getting up the nerve to tell
a potential love interest that you have herpes can stall the dating process in it's tracks. But there is an alternative ... Date others who also have herpes. That way, you both know the struggles the other have faced and you can be completely honest with one another from the beginning, without fear of rejection.
While some may feel that this type of dating choice limits you, it may well be a blessing for those who are newly diagnosed and fear disclosure. To have that issue out of the way may open the door eventually to dating outside the STD dating service in time.
On dating services in general:
Use sound judgment. Any type of service where you meet online may be risky. Talk for a good long time. Get to know the person. If you choose to meet, pick a public location where there will be plenty of people. If you are a woman, don't have them pick you up at your home.
Meet them there. Get a voicemail phone. Don't give out your home phone. Just practice common sense.
For many, an actual date may not even materialize. It will be enough to meet others with herpes and realize that you are not alone. In any case, here is a free dating service for singles with herpes. In fact, it's the considered the best and largest site of it's kind on the world. It's called Positive Singles and with membership you can:
