When it comes to meeting someone new you need to understand that meeting in a public place is obviously a better idea than meeting at ones home. This makes everyone feel more comfortable. Ask you date before you meet up if there is a location you both know that can be in your “comfort zone”. This really helps because what people tend to do is try and make things easier for their date when they are just making things harder on themselves.
Another thing to remember is that even with a condom you can still get HSV-2 and if you are taking that next step with someone you must clear up the void and let them know you’re positive. Its not fair to keep it a secret at all. Imagine how that must feel. Betrayal and cheated in a way is no way to start a relationship.
