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.I coach women to really pay attention as to whether or not their relationships are only based on the fact that both partners find sanctuary in the fact that they both are infected.If so, this is a fateful disaster waiting to happen.The truth is that herpes affects all sorts of women and the stigma of it being “dirty” and “shameful” is totally unfounded.The fact is that herpes affects at least 1 in 4 women and statistically speaking, there is absolutely no way that 1 in 4 women are “dirty”, sexually irresponsible and promiscuous.I have coached so many women over the years after they are newly diagnosed with herpes and I always remind them that The Talk is an essential part of staying healthy.
They had been dating for some time and things were really going well.One of the benefits of using herpes dating sites is that you don’t need to worry about rejection because of your status. Getting Too Comfortable: I can’t tell you how many times I have had women with herpes share with me that the only reason they stayed in a bad relationship was because their partner also had herpes.This seems to happen more frequently with couples who come together on herpes dating sites.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.Dating within the herpes community is a great first step, but I encourage women to get out there in the open pool if things don’t work out in the “small pool”. Transmitting Herpes To A Partner: For many women, their greatest fear is transmitting the virus to an uninfected partner.It will eat away at one’s soul and rob a woman of her right to be have a happy and healthy relationship. Small Pool of Fish: If a woman chooses to only date within the herpes community or from herpes dating sites, then she limits herself to the number of potential partners that would otherwise be interested in dating her.
