Informing the dating partner about your herpes
When a person comes to know that he has herpes, he has to inform his date about the same. It is unfair to reveal it after having sex. However, telling about your herpes to your date when you are about to have sex also is not correct. At that juncture, both the partners may fail to take right decision and act responsibly. When a man or woman comes to know that the dating partner has herpes, he or she may use it as a good reason to break the partnership. There are some people who will continue with the friendship but will avoid doing things. There are also people who continue to have sex with the affected partner in spite of the risk.
