Dating for black men and women living with herpes - Black Herpes Dating

Posted by ElvaJose on January 8th, 2018

According to various independent studies, black men and women are at a greater risk of
contracting herpes. Statistics have revealed that more than 50 black men and women are
living with a sexually transmitted infection, with a majority of them are infected with the
herpes simplex virus. However, living with herpes doesn’t mean you cannot date or maintain
physical intimacy. It only means you would have to follow some precautions and lose the
freedom of getting laid around with random strangers.

For all black men and women seeking a companion, here are a few tips that are definitely
worth having a look:

  • Join a herpes dating site: First things first. Joining a herpes dating site would ensure
    you connect with people who are living with herpes so your chances of finding a
    match are higher. On the other hand, if dating is not your primary agenda, it would be
    easier to seek support from those who already have herpes. The benefit of dating a
    person living with herpes is you would neither need to have the talk nor stand a
    chance of transmitting the virus to your partner.
  • Communicating with your partner: Although people living with herpes are advised
    to date someone already having herpes, sometimes this doesn’t seem to be a way out,
    especially when you're already someone and learn about your diagnosis. Instead of
    panicking about the condition, it would be better to calm down and communicate the
    status to your partner. If your partner has no idea of what herpes is, educate him/her
    by providing facts. However, before you decide to educate someone, it would be wise
    to make sure you know everything about herpes.
  • Medication and precautions: Black men and women living with herpes are advised to take antiviral drugs and follow a host of other precautions in order to avoid spreading the infection to their partner. Besides, your paramedic may also suggest oral drugs and ointments containing acyclovir and famciclovir in case you experience an outbreak. Your healthcare professional might ask you to refrain from having sex during an outbreak. Furthermore, contraceptives would become a mandate for oral, vaginal as well as anal sex.

While you'd feel the entire process to be a little cumbersome in the beginning, it is still much
better than being the reason for your partner having herpes. As a matter of fact, people who
once liked getting laid around became more sexually responsible on contracting herpes.
Given the fact that black men and women are more vulnerable to being exposed to an STD
compared to their white counterparts, it makes perfect sense to abide by all the
aforementioned guidelines.
