I’m depressed about feeling I can’t be physically intimate with anyone ever again. Knowing and communicating the facts about the virus and how it is and isn’t transmitted will help you navigate dating. About one in five Americans has genital herpes, and the Centers for Disease Control estimates that over 80% of those who have it don’t know they’re infected.
There are millions of other people out there just like you who are successfully dating with herpes.
