Herpes Simplex Dating

Being diagnosed with herpes simplex virus can be a very disheartening thing for a person to learn, especially since currently, there is no cure. There are some lifestyle changes you may have to make once learning you have the virus. There are many treatments available for outbreaks and ways to make you more comfortable with the disease. So essentially, you can live a normal life with the virus.

However, one change you may have to make or one thing to take into consideration is your dating. Every time you date or become involved with a person, you have to consider the fact that if you make love, you could make that person susceptible to the virus.

So does this mean you have to live your whole life alone - a celibate?

Well, the answer is no. You can date even if you have herpes.

But dating usually leads to more... and what do you do in a situation when your date leads to the bedroom? How does a person with herpes still have a sex life without infecting others and without the fear of infecting their partner?

When dating, you need to remember the following:

  • Dating can lead to sex
  • There is no cure for herpes
  • Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease
  • Even with treatment, herpes can still be spread to others


There are actually a lot of people in the world with the herpes virus. You can still live a normal life and meet people and form relationships. When it comes to sex, you need to be careful and protect yourself as well as others.

It’s important to note that you should never have any type of sexual activity while you have an active outbreak of herpes.

There are many places to meet people and the internet has opened a whole new world of interactive dating. Herpes chat rooms are available so you can communicate with other people who have your same fears. You may even meet someone on a herpes chat board that you would like to communicate more with or even meet in person.

Hooking up with another person who has herpes is also a possibility. You could meet someone who understands your worries and has the same worries themselves. You do not have to worry about transmitting the disease to someone who already has it. You may find that you meet someone and form a relationship with someone who has the same disease and will therefore understand your situation and you will be equally understanding of them.

You could even meet someone in a herpes dating chat that you want to get together with.

Whatever you decide and whoever you meet, always understand that any person you have sexual relations with has the right to know that you have the virus and that the virus is incurable. You never know when you could transmit it to others and it is not fair to put someone at risk without their knowledge.
