I think it is great to challenge ourselves to move outside of the herpes community to find love and support. Now I would like to hear thoughts and opinions from you all on the pros and cons of: 1) herpes dating websites and apps, and 2) only dating within the herpes community. , I am a doctoral student in the sociology department at Purdue University.I recently completed my MA in sociology at the University of Northern Colorado where I explored the role of stigma in the process of disclosing a genital herpes diagnosis.
I was constantly worried about how and when I would have “the talk.” For some reason rejection got a lot harder when it had to do with my sexual health status.MPWH: The New Herpes Dating App By Contributing Author: Stephanie Have you heard the news?Apparently there is a new herpes dating app that works somewhat like tinder.I urge you all to be smart when using these apps and websites for the sake of your own health and other’s health.Although I agree that dating within the herpes community can be a great start to getting back out there after a diagnosis, I also argue that this can be limiting to a person’s dating life.
I really enjoy writing for the Pink Tent community and am excited to be able to share some of my experiences and thoughts about living with genital herpes with you all.
