How Long Should You Date Before You Tell Someone You Have Herpes

Now that you know you have genital herpes, you’re out of the dating game, right? Genital herpes doesn’t detract from your many desirable qualities, which have drawn people to you in the past and will continue to make you a great catch. A mother can infect her baby during delivery, often fatally. Kissing, cuddling, and fondling are safe, so you don’t have to tell before you do that. How long should you know someone before you tell them? If it appears the two of you could end up in bed on the first date, that’s probably a good time.

We can tell you that most potential partners don’t leave over herpes but still, it’s not easy. Well, I’m sure there are many ways to go about telling someone you have an STD, however, not all of them will help you keep the other individual. I’ve been married, I’ve had great long-term relationships, and I’ve never lost a partner simply because of my STD. In the end, only you will know what works best for you, but in the meantime, you can try this approach on for size until you do. I’d wait until you were ready to have genital contact and initiate the conversation prior. If you tell someone too soon they may consider it TMI; if you wait too long, they may feel strung along (the actual words used were left it waiting like a time bomb). Maybe you have had it for some time and are dating again, or, if you’re lucky, have already met someone you like. Some people use a hard and fast rule that you should tell by the third date. I believe it should be sometime before you are thinking about being exclusive or before the other person is too emotionally invested. You will find those who don’t mind as long as you take precautions, and those who love you enough for marriagecommitment and won’t let an STD come between you at all, throwing caution to the wind.
