Could you???

Ever be with someone who has herpes? They are undergoing treatment and have been outbreak free, for almost a yr. I do not and have any std and have never come across someone I like who's had one. I'm very torn I want more kids I have two now. But this guy seems like an awesome man. He got it from his cheating ex wife. So what would you do?

  • nice he is honest up front with you- many out there in dating world (i assume) are not
    if he can tell you this before you two sleep together, then he most likely will be as honest as possible when you two are together sexually, so you have less chance of getting it too
    can use condoms always, this will reduce chance by a lot

    if he is an awesome guy, i would not hold this only thing against him

  • Are you married to him? Sounds like no. I would not go there, you're not married. End of story.

  • But you couldn't have unprotected sex with him, so how would you have more kids?

    ^ what does this mean?
    herpes will not have an impact on your kids????
    you do not die from it- IF he would transfer to you

    confused by this statement you made
    if you are invested in him, think he is great, and would commit to him in a heartbeat IF it were not for this health issue- then you have to think if you will find another that is as good as him AND not have some issue

    your choice
    i am old, and the pickings are thin, so i am coming from this viewpoint

  • It's good that he told you, obviously cares for you and respects you, you'll have to sort out how you feel about the herpes.

  • You know you do not die from Herpies right? It is something you live with for the reast of your life.

  • A high school friend got herpes from her cheating fiance. She dumped him, but has to live with that lovely reminder of him. She married a great guy about 6 years later and have 2 beautiful kids. I know they take precautions and I think she had her kids by c-section. If a condom is used you should be protected but you should definitely ASK YOUR OB/GYN!

    The fact that this guy told you speaks volumes about his integrity. Sounds like a keeper to me.
