The dating doctor diaries

06 Oct

Recently, I started talking online with a new guy who made me feel all of the tingles and energy that signal the beginning of an exciting new relationship.

I wasn’t prepared when he suddenly dropped a bomb on me: He had genital herpes.

A week went by, and we continued to abstain from sex, although we were seeing each other almost daily at this point. I already knew I had HSV I — typically expressed orally as cold sores on the mouth — but my partner wasn't sure if he had HSV I or HSV II.

As a woman with a deep-seated fear of HIV and plenty of education on the subject, I realized that I hadn’t spent much time studying the ramifications of the herpes simplex virus (HSV). A common misconception is that HSV I is exclusive to the mouth and HSV II is exclusive to the genitals.

When Damon was about to stab Caroline, Stefan stopped him, promising her that he would never let anything happen to her.

In Season Two, their relationship changed due to Caroline's transformation into a vampire.

If and when you meet people who further stigmatize herpes, consider shutting down the shame and spreading some education instead.
