I totally enjoyed my chat with Marcia of askingforwhatyouwant.com. It was less an interview and more two friends chatting about how people with herpes can totally lead happy, fulfilled lives and learn to accept all the love they deserve.
Here is just some of what we talked about:
- Why herpes is not the end of your dating life
- Simple steps you can take to overcome herpes shame
- The opportunity herpes provides for deeper intimacy
- Whether or not to disclose your herpes status
- How (and when) to talk about herpes
- How to handle guilt and anger from your partner
- Tips for non-herpes partners
We also were cracking up at a few points. Who knew talking about herpes could be so much fun?
