My ex-wife denied ever having herpes, but gave it to me and finally admitted the truth.
Now divorced, as I encounter new relationships, I really struggle with this burden.
Love the outdoors and doing anything that is active.
I enjoy cuddling and going out to the movies I love to dance and have fun ...
I am able to meet and date women without difficulty—I’m fairly outgoing.

After going through the normal flip out and that my dating life would now consist of Ben and Jerry’s and DVD’s every Saturday night, I’m ready to get out there again.I have seen men post on various dating sites where they come right out on their profile stating they have herpes.That being said, I hold my head high, knowing that one day the right person will be willing to accept this negative for all the positives I have.
