Babylonia.....stated: What gets me is that people are so frikkin worried about genital herpes and post lewd and disgusting posts on a thread where their opinions aren't appreciated. Remember too that oral herpes is just one different strain from gential herpes and if your partner has HSV-1 on their mouth, you CAN VERY WELL get it yourself - even genitally. Remember that when you are dating someone with a cold sore.

And if you want to cut out your dating prospects of people who carry either strain (BTW, you can also get HSV-2 orally), you're looking at removing over 85% of the total population who either has oral OR genital cold sores from your dating pool.

In this case she did not deserve this to happen to her..I stand by her and support her the best I can. She is beautiful, young, and at the top of her modeling career, the only thing that upsets her now is who is gonna want her??? About 20% of the women don't even know they have it because they've never had an outbreak.

One more thing, up to 40% of those who have gential herpes (either h SV-1 or 2) do not know they even have it.

So it isn't always a case of withholding information from a partner. Maybe if we all would just take the time to talk and go slow enough to let our minds rule and not our genitals....we could control more of this.

On the downside, condoms do not significantly reduce the risk of infection as the contagious areas (areas where the virus is shedding; usually around the outbreak area) is not coverd by the condom. Had I been more attracted to her I might have taken the risk but even then it's unlikely. You can rationalize it all day long, but there's always some risk involved.

To say her life is over or who'd want her because she has the genital equivilent of a coldsore seems a bit melodramatic. Perhaps if I was somehow 0 certain that I'd end up marrying her at some point I would have gone that extra mile but casually dating someone isn't reason enough for me unfortunately.dated a lady for a while that was afraid she had picked up the virus from a former partner. enough cannot be said for the need to be careful with yourself and your partners. If the worst happens, then you're the one having to explain to your partner what you have, what the risks are, etc., etc.

I would be curious as to how they got it, then the situation may be different but still, I have a feeling I couldn't.

Yes they were brave enough to tell me and I would thank them that they did, but I would most likely be honest and say nothing would happen because of it. I know THREE PEOPLE who got genitlal herpes by their selfish prick-of-a-person partner who never gave them the chance to DECIDE how they would safeguard themselves from it.

With treatment, your occurance of outbreaks can be limited significantly or eliminated altogether.

It's quite possible to engage in sexual activity with someone infected with genital herpes and never contract it yourself. That seems way too high but I'd agree it's probably more prevalent than we'd expect. I was seeing a woman and she informed me that she had it. I appreciated her honesty and all but that killed it for me.

Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.

Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...

Maybe your friend should educate herself on the virus. but nothing more The closest I would have come to that was when I was a teenager and got chickenpox.. I don't want something similar in the more sensitive areas among the other things the virus does... she is pre-disposed to cold sores and it scared her to think it was possible she had it. Then, of course, there are those who don't bother telling anyone.
