Now that you know you have genital herpes, you're out of the dating game, right? There's no reason to stop looking for love and fun.
Genital herpes doesn't detract from your many desirable qualities, which have drawn people to you in the past and will continue to make you a great catch. The first date after a genital herpes diagnosis may seem a little strange, however.
Like warts that appear elsewhere on your body, genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).
Some strains of genital HPV can cause genital warts, while others can cause cancer.
It's up to you to decide the right time to tell a date that you have genital herpes.
