Re: HPV and Dating
First of all, good for you for having the knowledge about your condition. I, like you, was not given a choice. As for your question, I don't think there is any right answer. I have had a variety of reactions. One was that they didn't care, and another was that they didn't want to have anything to do with me. Luckily, the man I am with now, is okay with it, and we have been together for three years now, and I'm sure we will marry. Just be prepared to answer a lot of questions! Things like, how you got it, can they get it, etc. My guy asked a lot of questions, and did a lot of research himself.
Honestly, the way I look at it is, if you tell this guy and he walks away from you, then he didn't deserve to have you anyways. There are millions of people who have this STD, and there IS someone who will accept it, and love you no matter what.
Luckily I have not had any reoccurrence since 2006 when I had them burned/lasered off, and in the three years me and my boyfriend have been dating, he has not had any occurrence of HPV either. I actually check him once in awhile because I don't want to have them go unnoticed.
Good luck with everything!! I hope this post helped!! I hope if/when you tell him, he appreciates the fact that you're respecting him enough to tell him, and that you're giving him a choice!
