"Talk DIDNT go well.... Need guidance!!"
   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.

   Yeah here's some advice: fuck him. Move on. Good riddance.

I married a woman with H2. Too in love to let it interfere when she told me. Very happily married. Her OB's are so terrible that she has one if she misses just one valtrex. Me? After 5 years of frequent (my poor wife hehe) unprotected intimacy I still have no indications of contraction. We have sex three times per week probably.

You dodged a bullet. Wear your herpes without shame. Really. Faaaar bigger problems can exist in a relationship than a cold sore.
