Telling Isn't Easy
A long long time ago in a place not
that far away...
I was single and on a mission to make up for my bookworm childhood
(never went to my high school prom, never been kissed) by sampling all the many
flavors life had to offer.
I was in my late 20s I was finally making some
money. As fate would have it I met this gorgeous friend of a roommate.
Things progressed nicely until that wonderful evening when all the planets
seemed in alignment. One evening where nothing could go wrong.
, great wine , moonlight over her balcony... etc. We finally kissed after
weeks of teasing and innuendo. Then she hit me with it.
"We need to talk..."
I was shocked and scared but she explained the condition to me and the
risks (at least the ones she knew about at the time). She told me that she
had had it since she was 16 years old.
She said since the initial outbreak
had never had another one. She said that she wanted me and thus I

If she hadn't told me I would have never known that she had anything at
all. I appreciated the talk and her honesty moved me and only made me feel
more protective toward her.
We broke up for the normal silly 20something
reasons. She had boyfriends before me and after me and the last thing I
heard was that she is engaged.
So yes, telling isn't easy but people do it
and go forward with their lives.
