Would you date someone with Herpes?Page 13 of 13    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13)
i think alot of ppl dont really know wot they r dealing with when it comes to herpes.. some ppls comments make it sound as bad as something like HIV and are very ignorant of the real facts .. it is basically a skin condition.. would u not date someone if they had a coldsore? coldsores are from the herpes virus as is chickpox and shingles it is very common 1 in 10 ppl in britain has it, and 1 in 4 in america.. its obviously not ideal to have it, but the friends i no that have it have never passed it on.. i think it was very brave of her to tell you.. u hear of ppl knowing they have it and not telling ppl n sleeping with them anyway.. which is horrible.. when my friend was diagonosed with it he was distraught.. but after looking at the internet and researching properly he discovered its not the massive deal that every1 makes out.. perhaps u should give her a chance.. im not condoning wot she did but ppl do make massive mistakes in life..

If the person is honest enough to share that with me, i can't see herpes as that big a problem, there are from memory
a couple of different types and many people play around with different people before they settle down, like pashing as many people on new years as possible, a fair percentage of people have it and its not that bigger deal than a common cold, some antibiotics and there right till next time. So in essence it wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

I know this is an old post, but...hahaha. Antibiotics on a virus, huh? Why does this guy think that will work?

I would politely say "NO" and run the opposite direction. I understand life is short but I don't need herpes to complicate the situation.

My soon to be ex had herpes when I married him. I knew the chances but we always made sure we were careful. He knew his body well and knew if there was an outbreak starting. Those times we abstained. Every other time even without an outbreak we used condoms. There were a couple times we used nothing which is how we got our sons but mostly we stayed protected. I have never contracted herpes and we were sexually active together for around at least 6 of those years (don't ask). On the flip side my best friend has herpes. No they weren't together. :) Her and her husband have been together and sexually active for 10 years. Her husband has never contracted the disease either.
My point is don't let this be the deal breaker. It is completely possible to have a sexual relationship without the other person contracting anything. If she knows her body well she will know when to avoid sexual contact. Good luck.

Have read a # of profiles and have talked to some who have contracted Herpes and in saying that have also read on the subject....there's a time to play and a time not to....that would have to be understood....UNLESS your good with a sexless relationship but there's always mutual masturbation along with other alternatives..... sign of the times IF everyone is honest and up-front on any conditions they might have.....good luck!
