The truth is that herpes affects all sorts of women and the stigma of it being “dirty” and “shameful” is totally unfounded.

The fact is that herpes affects at least 1 in 4 women and statistically speaking, there is absolutely no way that 1 in 4 women are “dirty”, sexually irresponsible and promiscuous.

I wanted to put my best foot forward and not limit myself to only date men with herpes.

Looking back, this was a good choice for me because I met my husband through a mutual friend.

One of the benefits of using herpes dating sites is that you don’t need to worry about rejection because of your status. Getting Too Comfortable: I can’t tell you how many times I have had women with herpes share with me that the only reason they stayed in a bad relationship was because their partner also had herpes.

This seems to happen more frequently with couples who come together on herpes dating sites.

Regardless of whether your partner has herpes or not, a woman should never stay in a bad relationship because she doesn’t think she can do any better.

Over time, many women start to even forget that they have herpes, until its time to break things off.

The reason for this is that if you have genital herpes, your natural barrier of protection, the skin, might be compromised with small sores or lesions in and around the vagina and cervix that you might not even feel. Stigma: Herpes dating sites often give women who are newly diagnosed a chance to meet some really wonderful and normal men and women.

These openings in the skin are access points to HIV and other STD’s and infections. So many women with herpes who have been sexually responsible think that they are all alone.

Even after talking to his friend with herpes, he just couldn’t get over the betrayal, so he broke things off. The moral of this story is that if you are a woman dating with herpes, you MUST tell your partner before it’s too late.

Imagine how he or she would feel if they contracted genital herpes from you and you never disclosed your status!

Had I not given him the chance because of the fear of rejection, then we would have never come together.
