Dating a woman with genital herpes
A booming app industry in Silicon Valley means that new STI dating services pop up every few months, and a cursory Google search means that their marketing team, or their founder, or their intern, quickly discovers me. As time goes on and stigma lessens, there will be less of a demand for these services.
She wanted me to become a spokesperson, and when I refused, someone higher up in the food chain emailed me again. But then the same thing happened again with another STI dating site, and then another, and another. I don’t think any STI dating service is going to reinvent the wheel and be successful when so many have tried and failed in the past.
It's ugly, but you can do everything else you could before, save for some precaution.
But that's for other people's sake, not your own.
So I'm just wondering Askmen am I in the wrong?
Would you ever date a girl with herpes My wife has the cold sores on the face strain, and in 10 years I haven't caught it.
Not to mention that people with herpes are diverse.
Having a minor skin condition in common is a shoddy foundation for a healthy relationship.
But it was pretty out of line for your friend to bitch you out like that.Like other dating services, they can be unsafe spaces for women where harassment and coercion thrive.When you round up a vulnerable and isolated population, create a community space and fail to moderate it or protect your users, you create a dangerous environment.Which I don't think she took it well because I get a call from the friend that set us up basically calling me names and that I was shallow for "letting a girl like her get away" which confused the hell out of me because she knows what kind of guy I am and that I would never be sexually active with someone who has contracted an std.
But she told me " I was living in the past that alot of people have herpes and that I needed to be more sex positive when it comes to stuff like this." I told her "no way" then she hung up on me and I haven't heard from her since.These websites enable the self-segregation of the H community in a way that I believe contributes to our invisibility and inertia. Some of these websites claim to empower their customers.
