Can anyone help with some advice or stories of their own? Is there anyone else out there who is dating new people? I started dating someone new and I felt that I had to break it to him early in the relationship.
I've been reading the boards since I found out I have HPV a few months ago. It might be me but I can't start a new relationship because I feel like telling them should be the first thing I do.
I'd like to thank everyone for their responses as well as the people who post questions. I've been pretty down on myself since I found out (as I've seen a lot of other are/were as well). When I found out I had HPV I told the person I was with and things ended with her. Most you could do, maybe do, is if you new what strain you could check to see if the gardisil is the same strain and then ask them if they had the gardisil shots. I would feel like I was lying to them the whole time.
and i don't really want to use it as a defining factor.
Yeah, it's a little more comforting knowing there are people out there going through the same thing.
Put your best foot forward and get out and start dating! I figure I might as well use all means necessary to try and find someone! " I don't know, personally, I think the world is too small for that!
Also, it hasn't worked for me yet, but I also post ads in craigslist for people with HPV under men seeking women. Next thing you know someone you don't want to knows you have this. If you're more comfortable with it, then knock yourself out! I'm definitely not ready to do anything where I would put a picture up. My most recent relationship ended when I found out I had HPV.
It's something that is a part of who I am good or bad..
I had been talking to this person for 2 months, but when did not want to share it until I felt comfortable.
There's an art to finding an using a great, free dating site, and it usually involves a lot of care, time and attention.
Really great STD or STI dating sites aren't as easy to come by, so combine the two needs, and you may find yourself in a pickle.
For example, if you had slept with say, hypothetically, 100 people or so, you wouldn't blurt that out on the first date, would you?
