Herpies virus dating dating a photo
Jenelle Marie Davis, 34, of Grand Rapids, Michigan, will gladly explain why having herpes isn’t the end of the world. It took years for Davis, founder of The STD Project, which encourages awareness and acceptance of various sexually transmitted diseases, and spokesperson for Positive Singles, a dating site for people with STDs, to come to terms with the diagnosis she got at age 16.“My mom says the entire way home from my appointment, I cried and said no one would ever love me, no one would ever want me, and I’d never get married,” Davis tells SELF.When she was diagnosed with herpes almost three years ago, Whitney Carlson, 29, a social media editor in Chicago, had a similar reaction.
It can also be asymptomatic, so most people with herpes don’t know they have it, which is a large part of the reason why it’s so prevalent.
The society has become more acceptable and understanding towards people having an STD.
Nevertheless, when it comes to HPV or Herpes Dating, it’s an altogether different story.
A few years ago, people having an incurable sexually transmitted disease such as HPV or HSV had no other option than to lead a life of solitude.
However, things have changed or rather improved since then.
“I mostly thought, ‘I’m going to die alone, no one’s going to date me ever again,” she tells SELF.
