4 Herpes Dating Tips: Breaking the News Without Getting Dumped!

Dear Friend,

My name is Ed and I have something to tell you. It’s not easy to say, but I’m just going to come out and say it…

I have herpes.”

Are you still here? I didn’t scare you off, did I? Until a few years ago, it seemed like every time I had “The Herpes Talk” with someone, they’d take off running in the opposite direction.

Do You:

·        Have trouble working up the courage to tell your partners you have herpes?

·        Fear that you’ll never have sex again?

·        Worry that you’ll be dumped every time you confess?

I know how you feel, trust me, I’ve been there, done that. Take for example the chat I had with a lovely woman named Amanda several years back.

Amanda and I had been dating for about two weeks and we were really hitting it off. I was intoxicated by her. I don’t know if it was her sense of humor, her smile, her brains, or her beauty. All I know was that I wanted to take our relationship to the next level…

…unfortunately, that meant having the dreaded “Herpes Talk” with her. By that point in my life, I felt like I’ve had that talk a hundred times. No matter how many times you break the news, it never seems to get easier, does it?

Actually it can be much easier, but I’ll tell you more about that later

Anyway, on to Amanda and I…

I sat her down and told her there was something I needed to tell her. It might have been my trembling hands or the sweat pouring down my forehead, but something tipped her off to the fact that what I was about to reveal wasn’t exactly good.

I said “Amanda, I have to tell you something before we take this relationship any further”

Amanda’s mind immediately started racing. I could see the wheels turning inside her head as she grasped for an idea of what I was about to say next. She thought to herself…

Is he breaking up with me?”

Is he married?”

Is he a man in a woman’s body?”


I could tell Amanda simply couldn’t take another second of guessing, so I came out and said it…


I really don’t know how to tell you this, so I’m just going to be blunt. I have genital herpes.”

To break the awkward silence, I continued…

Amanda, I really like you. Heck, I may even be falling in love with you. I really want to keep seeing you, but I’ll understand if you want to break it off because of this.”

After an excruciating few seconds of uncertainty, Amanda politely excused herself and told me she needed some time to think about what I had just told her.

Was this the end for Amanda and I? Unfortunately, yes. Herpes tends to do that, doesn’t it? It sneaks up on a relationship with a lot of long-term potential, rears its ugly head and destroys everything.

Well, I’m here to tell you…

Did you know: there are specific ways to break the news to your partner that will actually drastically improve the chances that they will stay with you?

If I knew years ago what I know now, I might actually still be with Amanda!

As you can probably tell, I still have regrets about how that conversation with her went. When she left, I wondered if that was my future wife walking out the door. It left questions that I’m still asking myself and opened wounds that took years to heal over.

I wouldn’t wish those “what if’s” on anyone. Not my worst enemy, and especially not you.  It’s NOT your fault.

4 Powerful Herpes Dating Tips for Having “The Herpes Talk”
Without getting Dumped!

Pick The Location Carefully.

Choose a place with a powerful emotional “vibe”.  I prefer a carnival, amusement park, bowling alley, or an arcade.  Anywhere that you’re surrounded by games, lights, sounds, laughter, and rides. All these things serve to break up the tension and usually help lighten the mood.

If You’re Nervous, They Will Be Too!

If you approach “The Herpes Talk” If You’re Nervous, They Will Be Too!  with a calm and relaxed head, you can remain in control of your emotions.  If your hands are shaking and you’re sweating bullets, it’s going to send out so much negativity, your partner won’t be able to grasp what you’re telling them with a clear head.

Wording Matters!

Certain words and phrases can cut like a knife. Try to avoid using certain terms like, “genital herpes”, “incurable”, and “contagious”.  Instead, cushion the blow by saying things like, “I carry the virus that causes herpes. It’s not really as bad as it’s made out to be. I take very good care of myself and take medication that prevent the outbreaks that allow it to spread.”

Educate Yourself!

If you haven’t learned everything you can about your genital herpes, shame on you! Now’s the time to start.  Keeping yourself educated will not only protect you and your partner, but being able to answer their questions during “The Herpes Talk” will make you seem like you’re responsible and in control.

If you want to take control and never worry about being rejected then I highly recommend that you take a look at my program, The Herpes Talk. 

In it you’ll find some eye-opening facts that will help you get your life in perspective.   You’ll find the courage to have “the talk” with your new partner without feeling ashamed.
