I have seen men post on various dating sites where they come right out on their profile stating they have herpes.
And before I found out about my little gem, I would immediately think, "not in my backyard". I thought that if I meet someone, and there seems to be some sort of vibe, I would have the talk pretty quickly, possibly even the first date.
I wouldn’t put it in a profile, I wouldn’t say it on a first date, and I wouldn’t say it when slipping on a condom.

I control it with medication, but no matter how you slice it, it is what it is.
I have gone through "the conversation" a million times in my mind.
