I am 30 years old and was diagnosed 1 year ago with type 2 herpes. I have struggled to date guys in fear of being rejected for something I feel I can't control. I take my meds when I feel an outbreak coming on, but not on a daily basis since I'm not in a relationship. I just started dating a guy for a month, which I know is short but things were perfect!! We got along, had a lot in common and I haven't felt this way for someone ever. He was ok with waiting so we didn't mess around at all. I wanted to tell him before we got into a situation where the physical rush took over.
I told him two nights ago and he was in shock. I got upset when I told him. I later explained to him that it was the fear of telling him because of the stigma that goes along with it. I left his house to give him time to process everything. He made sure I got home ok, and I tried to stay positive,
The next day we text a bit and joked around like normal. He said he wanted to come over after work. Long story short- he ended it!! I am lost, hurt, emotional, and don't know what to do. I want nothing more than to be with him and I feel like there is nothing I can do.
Should I send him links with information? Leave him alone? PLEASE I need some guidance.
