Not infected but dating

Postby Pufferfish » Thu Mar 07, 2013 10:54 pm

I know my subject line is a bit vague but I'll explain here. I have recently started dating an amazing guy. He is smart, handsome, sweet, funny, we communicate well together and he has HPV. I'm hoping someone that had gone through this will give me some advice. We have found alternatives for being intimate at this time but I'll take any advice I can get. How do you decide to walk right into something you will have to deal with the rest of your life?

Thanks in advance!!!

Have you educated yourself on HPV?? Are you taking your time getting to know one another outside of sex?? What about STD testing?? Are you guys planning to make a date to go and get tested for other STDs, too??

Yes, I'm doing quite a bit of educating. He is very educated about it too and is open and truthful about what he knows. I'm talking to my doctor about it next week as well. We aren't rushing into sleeping together, I'm just hoping to find out some opinions from those that have been there because it is all a bit overwhelming. Neither of us have anything else, I don't have anything at all.

If you like him and he likes you, don't let the HPV be an obstacle.
