As far as I can figure if I want to try and stay with her, perhaps just suggesting we don't have sex while I sort through this is a good approach. Taking the risk of contracting it (assuming I haven't already) is a big risk even if statistically small as women I'd date in the future I'd obviously have to tell assuming I tested positive.
I have gone through "the conversation" a million times in my mind.
All of those things might be sensitive and relevant, but they don’t have to be dealbreaker-type issues if dealt with effectively.
I wouldn’t put it in a profile, I wouldn’t say it on a first date, and I wouldn’t say it when slipping on a condom.
1/6 of the country has it and most don’t even know.
Again, I’m no expert, but I coached one client through this tricky process.
She's been taking things slow with me, which I like, because I'm definitely not the type of guy to rush into things, emotionally or even physically.
You want to make it clear: this is a fact about you, and it’s something you have under total control. You can literally have this conversation after dinner or a movie while walking, so as not to make the situation feel too pressurized.
