You have to tell your partner like yesterday. Tell them in a way that's straight forward but passive at the same time. If they love you enough they'll accept you and continue to be part of your life no matter what obsticles are in your way. If they run then they were just never yours to keep and you don't need someone like that in your life. Just maybe if he leaves he will realize what he has with you and return. This disease is a "oh damn" kind of deal. You can't necessarily prevent it nor can you cure it. He can catch it any time. It's not fair for you to decide that for him, give him the choice when you confess.View Thread
