people media online dating - Dating a person with genital herpes

My friend recently met a girl he likes- but she was infected with genital herpes over 10 years ago.She has an outbreak about once a year and says they are much milder than they have been in years past.

My understanding is that many who have healthy immune systems will not contract the virus when exposed.

It is my understanding that you will contract the virus. From what I understand, a large percentage of people are positive for the virus but never have symptoms...are carriers.

But the virus is still in your body..can still cause issues..not symptoms.

I researched this a couple years ago for a good friend whose daughter contracted herpes after only having a couple partners who each claimed to never have had herpes.

And supposedly, you can carry the virus without symptoms for years and years..then have an outbreak at a much later date. Unless this is the love of his life, I would probably not do this.

That's what I recall from my research...suggest you may want to research it further. Who in their right mind would knowingly expose themselves to an incurable disease? I'm not sure that people really do transmit the virus absent an outbreak.It seems possible to me that the carriers are falsely claiming that they did not have herpes.It also seems possible that they had a small outbreak or the beginnings of an outbreak and risked transmitting it because they were horny.Maybe they told themselves that it wasn't an outbreak but it was.Maybe they weren't that in touch with their bodies, but that is less likely.There are also people who would never sleep with anyone during an outbreak. However, if signs and symptoms occur during the first outbreak, they can be quite pronounced.
