This past weekend my boyfriend and I broke up, it was because of the ‘h’ but for other issues. We had not slept together yet, but it was just because it didnt feel like the right time to me.
After we broke up I realized he was just telling me what he thought I wanted to hear hoping that it would make the situation feel right, and then I would sleep with him.
Right after we broke up he went and found someone to sleep with.
Herpes can be a real drag, but it has encouraged me to be more picky about who I see and have the talk with. I am glad that I had the talk with him, but even more glad that I had strength in myself enough to not sleep with him.
Herpes does not change the person you are or make you any less of a wonderful catch. It took me a while to figure this out, and even longer to actually have the strength to stand up to him and tell that I would not let him keep treating me like shit.
It has been hard to see him with someone else, but I know I am better off without him.
I just needed to tell someone.
