How You Can Manage Dating Someone With An STD?
While there is no doubt about the fact that dating someone with an incurable sexually transmitted infection is difficult, it isn't impossible when you share impeccable understanding with your partner. When you're dating someone who is living with an STD, it becomes important to understand his medical condition and offer support.

While things would have been very different about 15 years ago, thanks to the inception of antiviral therapies and antiviral drugs, it is now possible to live a normal life despite having an incurable STD such as herpes or HIV. Here's how you can manage dating someone with an STD.

When you're living with the STD

Specialist STD dating sites have made it possible for people with herpes to find a companion who is living with the same STD. However, things aren't as easy as they appear to be. Although there might be similarities in your treatments, you'd be very different on the emotional front. It can be said that you'd still have to understand what the person has gone through in the past to ensure he has a great future.

If you have managed to overcome the stigma attached to the sexually transmitted infection, you'd have to see to it that your partner is fine and doesn't regret his past.

When you don't have the STD

STDs such as Herpes are asymptomatic. This means the infection would have no visible symptoms and you'd never know that you're carrying the virus unless you get tested. There are chances that your partner might discover about his STD status while in the relationship. In this case, your first step should be to comfort him rather than planning a breakup. Also, it wouldn't be a bad idea to get tested for an STD.

When your partner has a sexually transmitted infection, it becomes important to learn more about it and find ways of dealing with the symptoms associated with it. Look out for ways that can help make your lifestyle better and healthier. Besides, you should also consider visiting a therapist who would plan a long term or short term treatment depending on symptoms or status of the infection in the body.

After experiencing this disease's effect, I did some research on it and found that 20% of American adults have some STD and herpes is on top of the list. I did more research and saw that there tons of people going through the same emotional roller coaster as my best friend. Then I ran across std dating sites. I was surprised to know there was a community like this with normal folks that were getting the same problem and contracted an STD and they were all looking for love. These were people of all shapes, colors, and sizes. I told my girlfriend, and she reluctantly decided to join one. Now I am so happy that she did because she's now engaged to a guy she met on the website!

As most of the STD infections are caused unknowingly, it makes no sense blaming someone for contracting the infection. It would be better if you gather more information about the STD and take every precaution to avoid contracting it.
