Dating with Genital Herpes

std datingMost of us shudder at the thought of passing a disease to someone we care about, especially one they will have to spend the rest of their life with; however, when you’re dating with genital herpes with someone who hasn’t contracted the virus, that’s exactly what you’re risking. Genital herpes is most contagious when open sores are present, but the virus can still be transmitted without signs of an outbreak. In other words, there is no 100% effective way to prevent transmission from one who has genital herpes to one who does not have it.

On the bright side, there are viable options out there for those who want to date others in their situation. Once you have genital herpes you have it, you don’t have to worry about getting it again. Online dating sites are hotter than ever; it’s estimated that 20 million people a month use online dating sites. One of the best parts about online dating is you are able to sift through countless numbers of possible matches and narrow it down to the best fit. It allows you to get to know someone before meeting them via telephone, instant message, or skype, making that first face to face meeting much less awkward and nerve-racking. That’s what Safepositive’s dating site is all about, taking the pressure off.
