I found out a few weeks ago that I tested positive for genit

I found out a few weeks ago that I tested positive for genital herpes. I have been utterly devastated since finding out. I have always been so careful, but I trusted one wrong guy and it has destroyed my life.
My first outbreak wasn't that bad but this second one I'm currently going through is KILLING me! It depressed me to know this is going to be my life. I'm afraid I am now going to die alone because no man is going to want to date someone with herpes. How did you guys go through it when you found out?

@Kupcakes2010 BTW, your second outbreak is probably just a continuation of your first...a re-outbreak on your first infection is not uncommon because you haven't built up antibodies yet. This is the worst you will have to go through.

@Kupcakes2010 this site helps as it does suck. Everyone feels the same way you do when it first happened to us. When the outbreak happens it gets worse, when it doesn't it's forgotten about...It will take time and this group and others help with coping...Good luck and yes there are plenty of men who have it and would date an HSV person...
