None of these guys started screaming at me, they THANKED me and said they would get tested – none of them had it -YAY!!!! And while I’m not an expert in herpes, per se, I do know a number of people who have it, and continue to lead rich, happy, limitless dating lives. Because one second you’re saying “No way” to a guy with herpes, and the next, you’re praying that a guy doesn’t judge you for this one minor thing. According to Herpes.com, 50-80 percent of the American adult population has oral herpes. The scariest part of this whole thing is the staggering ignorance about herpes – a disease that undoubtedly affects someone that you know. Well, let’s just say that I have close friends, clients, and ex-girlfriends who have genital herpes, and none of them are traumatized, hospitalized or ostracized because of it. Just know that if you have the disease, you may be entirely asymptomatic, which would mean that you could potentially transmit it without knowing.

So many of you know that I am totally "out" of the Herpes Closet..... I’ve had relationships with H- men and they have not caught it because I can take anti-virals and even without them I rarely have an outbreak. Because I’m tired of having “the talk” and having guys spazz out because they have no freaking clue about the TRUTH about STD’s.
and some may have followed my more recent experiment with disclosing my status on my online profile on OKCupid. Your chance of getting it from me (assuming you are H- …and BTW, there is a really good chance you have not been tested unless you specifically ASK for the test) is less than 2% - the SAME risk you take when you get in a car for having a fatal accident. In fact, I recently came out to everyone because I’m tired of the undeserving stigma that comes with Herpes.
It would be less of a risk if you’re with a long-time partner, and possibly one who’s been tested negative of herpes. You may be wondering if you can become infected by using the same towel, toilet seat, wash cloth, or anything else a person who has herpes has previously used.
Also, if you can get herpes by dipping in a bathtub or swimming pool where an infected person just took a dive.
And I wouldn’t be dramatic, just simply say, you need to know something, I have herpes.
I control it with medication, but no matter how you slice it, it is what it is.
What many do not realize is that it’s not limited to sexual contact involving genitals, completely unaware of what oral herpes or the common cold sores can bring about.
