Dating services for herpes victims Adult married chat room
There was no counseling on how to disclose my diagnosis or advice on dating after herpes.
There was no concern for my mental health, or how I was digesting this news that so many find devastating.
I took myself out of the dating game for months after my first outbreak cleared.
I did not, however, anticipate how much stigma I would experience when I was diagnosed.I believed no one would ever be attracted to or love me again. I was the punchline of every herpes joke on TV, in the movies, and among some of my social groups. With the support of a few select friends and family, I was able to overcome some of that initial shame and self-inflicted stigma.
