What is HERPES?

 It is a disease caused by the herpes virus by oral or sexual conact.lt attacks the nervous system. There are eight types of herpes virus; most common is the genital herpes. One of the main issues that led to the stigmatization of herpes is that people without herpes are always talking negatively about something that they know nothing about.  Herpes: It is a disease caused by Herpes Simplex Virus (known as HSV). You are unique Herpes Simplex Virus or HSV makes you a unique singleton. You have challenges with communication that your friends simply don't.

Now, since it is about dating we consider it to be the genital/vaginal/oral infection .According to the data collected by WHO (World Health Organisation) 3700000000 population of people under the age of 50 that is 67% of the global population are influenced as of 28 October 2015. This infection can last for entire life if not detected, it often has no or light symptoms; it can only be detected by blood test.

What if I am Herpes positive?

If you are confirmed that you are herpes positive, you just contact your gynaecologist and start the treatment as soon as possible because you won't want to get matters worse with time as variable for yourself; right? After all modern medical science has evolved and developed so much that even HIV and cancer can be cured with proper medical attention so what if you want to date now and you are not cured yet! On a serious note (not being so serious; -)), you have two options. One is direct dating as we usually do or online dating. Should you date online? Probably YES!

Are you open or private?

 Some people feel that a major life challenge like herpes should be out on the table from the beginning, because if they can't discuss it now than what's the point? Others are private people in all matters and it would be unthinkable to make herpes a fortuning topic of conversation. It’s important to know how you feel about this issue, so you find either open or private matches. Usually you can tell how open a person is, by how much they reveal during small talk. If your online and virtual communiqués are equal in length and depth to someone you may be a good match. For private people other topics are often better because being comfortable with you around other topics will lead to talking all things medical. People on very specialized dating sites like a site for people with a specific medical condition may have very strong emotions around their condition. They may feel that the web community they choose is a safe place to express themselves and find compassion where they may have been or would be judged elsewhere on the internet.

Especially if you are nervous about discussing medical details, this may be a good question because other things than HSV will likely be talked about. The big question is When’ll you find you are comfortable with a person going to a confidential location on the second or third date should be easy enough if you are not interested in getting physical early then you can wait for the right time. The first date is all about personality, particularly if you already know you and your interest are in similar situations. Love will happen and when it does you shouldn't be afraid to discuss anything!

Now-a-days there are several dating websites for herpes positive people. You can just Google it and on one click you find thousands of matches. But wait....why people with herpes positive prefer dating Online??Because they think that they will get indulged in sexual intercourse! Really guys!!!If you are one of them then PLEASE change your perspective towards dating. Dating is not just about sexual intercourse or kissing and smooching.lf you two love each other than physical relationship should not be the goal .You can enjoy all these after curing yourself and if your partner loves you then he/she shall not force you to do any of Such things. Still if you are not comfortable with what I wrote you can go for online dating.

There are several dating websites for herpes positive people; some of them are highly rated such as "Positive Singles "MPWH" etc. The bottom line is if you want to experience real love and butterflies in your stomach then go and date the one in real because at the end of the day love and time is what you need the most; sex should never be the constraint but if you want it, take precautions; the online websites can't provide you the experience that a real dating can provide. Finally Choice is yours.
