The reason for this is that if you have genital herpes, your natural barrier of protection, the skin, might be compromised with small sores or lesions in and around the vagina and cervix that you might not even feel. Stigma: Herpes dating sites often give women who are newly diagnosed a chance to meet some really wonderful and normal men and women.These openings in the skin are access points to HIV and other STD’s and infections. So many women with herpes who have been sexually responsible think that they are all alone.All in all, I encourage women with herpes to keep an open mind as to who would and wouldn’t be open to dating them.
This is the main reason why I never used a herpes dating site.
Had I not given him the chance because of the fear of rejection, then we would have never come together.
While there have been several women who have found their partners from these sites, I have also heard of women who have just given up and stopped dating altogether if they are not successful.
The Talk: The most glaringly obvious benefit is that dating on a positive singles site can help to lessen the fear of having The Talk and disclosing your herpes status.
Where so many women fall short is that they skip ever having “The Talk” with their new prospective positive partners, especially if both have herpes.
