I'm in two minds about this and wanted to see what other hubbers thought, because while this is a taboo topic, I'm sure it's not an uncommon one.
One of my besties has recently started dating a man who ticks all of her boxes. It's been a while since I've seen her giddy like this over a guy & she is such a lovely person she deserves to be this happy.
Fast forward and he drops the bombshell the other night that he has herepes.
Now while I personally admire the guy for being honest & letting her know before they DTD.. She is now unsure if she wants to persue a relationship with this guy..
As I said, I'm in two minds. I don't blame her for having 2nd thoughts considering an ongoing relationship with this guy will likely lead to her catching the STI eventually.
Would this be a deal breaker for you? Have you experienced this with a current or previous partnar? Given the sensitive nature of this topic lets assume every story is a friend of a friend in hope to get some honest answers.
Is she making a mountain out of a mole hill? Is herepes really a big deal? I can imagine it's not pleasent and tbh if it was me I'd probably be having 2nd thoughts too.
