No, your message doesn't sound moronic and yes, things could be a lot worse.
I had the same thing happen to me with my first wife, but I was about twice your age. I wasn't in a band at the time, though, and didn't have girls hitting on me for casual sex so that was a bit of a different situation.
I'm glad you're ruling out Option A. While there are people out there who will take that option, in my opinion that makes the sociopaths, uncaring about others. Not my kind of people at all.
Option B is a tough one at your age, I know.
Option C means the end of one-night stands. From my lofty age, that's not such a bad thing. When I started dating after my divorce, I tended to tell prospective partners pretty early on in the getting acquainted process and I never had any of them run away. Actually, they were appreciative of my caring enough about them that I would do the difficult thing of telling them about it ahead of time. That was worth a lot of "points", believe me.
One thing to keep in mind, too, is that herpes is very far from being a rare condition, it's not easily transmitted, and the risk of transmission can be significantly reduced by taking the antiviral meds daily, as I do. I've been with my second wife 15 years and she is still negative for herpes.
I hope this helps. Always feel free to come here and ask questions. That's what we're here for.
