So I'm 21 years old in college and I'm almost done then I will go on to grad school in pursuit of my PhD, I always had this "give him a chance" mentality. Sadly, it has gotten me in the situation I am in today. Last week I got tested for HSV-2, I had the flu like symptoms and I had one sore. I learned this week that it was my first OB. I guess I can say that I'm grateful that my first OB was only one sore and walking around feeling like a burn victim, but I think what hurts worse is that the guy that had been practically living with me and I truly cared for knew that he had HSV-2. He refuses to talk to me and acknowledge the fact that he gave me something I now have to live with for the rest of my life I don't know how I should approach this situation. He knows he has it, but doesn't feel responsible to acknowledge it and to make sure he doesn't spread it. It's a horrible feeling when your trust has been violated in a such a way as this. I look at the guys that now try and talk to me that have spoken to me in the past and think that, "How am I suppose to tell him, if he actually wants to be with me?"...Most guys that still talk to me I didn't have herpes before I met them. One person has changed my life for the worse and doesn't even care or feel responsible for it. I lost my virginity a year ago this month. I've never slept around or had a lot of sexual partners, but of course it only takes one person. How do I deal with this?View Thread
