Dating and hsv2
We've had a few sexual encounters that are just shy of intercourse, but needless to say, I understand that this is enough exposure to transmit STD's. And the sexual chemistry is the best I've felt among all people I've dated (and feeling is mutual). On the other hand, I'm not the most (socially) desirable person to date (from a religion/color/ethics/politics/social alpha status and sexual appetite/preferences perspective).
The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur.I'm also getting tested myself again just to check that I'm not already HSV2 positive - again I understand the national statistics of 25% incidence and there is a good chance I have it and don't know about it. but it doesn't help me create a good decision framework for the question, 'do I continue seeing her or not'. For the next 3 days while I'm waiting for my own test results, I'm not likely to share this decision framework with her. So taking a chance on her now might not work out very well for me in the long term if this relationship doesn't pan out (and I'm unlucky and catch it -but considering our chemistry, I expect there will be significantly above average freqency of sexual contact...). Do I go with the bird in hand, or move on (and hurt a decent person in the process)...If I turn out to be positive, I'm sure I'll continue seeing her. If I'm negative, I'm inclined to reject her. I don't know how to think and act in a manner that is right by me, right by her, and is also pragmatic. that are not personal attacks on what I've had to say.Second, don't wait until you're just about to have sex -- in which case the attraction may be too strong for either of you to think rationally and act responsibly.If in the past you tended to start a new relationship with sex, you now might want to change your approach.
