Hello! Do you have HSV 1 or 2? Generally or orally?

I want to assure you that you will find someone. There are plenty of guys okay with children, and many okay with HSV or have it themselves. Both men I've disclosed to since being diagnosed 6 months ago have still wanted to pursue something. You'd be surprised. It's very hard but I like to think that having to have that conversation is a filter now, for all of the BS relationships that could've come my way. If a person is not wholly loving and accepting of you both having a child and a disease many have then they aren't the one for you ya know? I'm not sure if that's helpful or not.

I have been on this site for 2 years and I know that they have been several successful disclosures and it is best not to make any assumptions at this point in time because you have not even been out there and dated to even find out. I'm sorry that you were raped I hope they found the person who did this to you and I say focus on acceptance and your child at this point in time
