Timing is Important
Wait until you feel comfortable with each other and the relationship. Talking about herpes too soon isn't any better than talking about it too late. First dates are not the time to share something so personal. The time for the talk is before you advance to a sexual relationship. Not just before and certainly not during.

Bring it up when you're both relaxed and enjoying a cozy, comfortable evening. You can start the conversation by talking about taking your relationship to the next level. Being safe and healthy. The importance of getting tested. Flow with the conversation and see how it goes. You'll know if it's the right time.

If you aren't dating anyone or the herpes rejection ended a relationship you can always try the herpes online dating sites. Changes the whole thing. You don't have to go through the agonizing moments of waiting to tell. You already know both of you are infected.

As with any communication online, be careful. Read the reviews of any dating site you are considering. If you decide to meet someone from the dating service, make sure it's a public place. Never give out your home address unless you are really sure you can trust this person.

You deserve to be in a good, healthy, supportive relationship. Go for it and don’t let any rejections get you down. Rejections can be a blessing, because the relationship probably wouldn’t have worked any way.
