I had been talking to this person for 2 months, but when did not want to share it until I felt comfortable.When I did tell him, he told me that he was a bit shocked, and that was the last I heard from him. I understand that, for a relationship to have a potential for something special that both parties should be completely honest.From what I’ve come across so far, everyone approaching me with the same question seems to want to do their best to not embody the stigma that is attached to STDs.Thus, they want to be as open and honest as is expected while also having a fighting chance at beginning a new relationship.Remember, ignorance and stupidity are two entirely separate things. I believed only certain kinds of people got STDs, STDs defined your life, they did zombie-like things to your body, and basically, STDs were the end of the world – a physical and mental STD apocalypse, if you will.
Can anyone help with some advice or stories of their own? Is there anyone else out there who is dating new people? I started dating someone new and I felt that I had to break it to him early in the relationship.
I’ve heard any number of approaches, listened to the opinions of people without STDs, and have tried almost every tactic myself.
While I haven’t always told people when I should – sometimes not at all (you can read my STD Interview or find my response to telling past partners about HSV1 in this post about telling people about your STD) – I think, the majority of my readers aim to and the general public hopes that someone living with an STD will be as morally sound and ethical as possible.
I've searched the forums quite extensively and read up pretty much everything I can, but I'm still interested in some more views. The first time they gave me the blue Warticon solution which I dabbed on 3 nights a week. It was not particularly big, but it was visible to me, especially when my penis was of different sizes. The chances are they wouldn't be able to see it anyway or treatment would irritate it and make it worse than it is.
As of September last year, I believe I have genital warts. I went to GUM, they couldn't see it and gave me the all clear - telling me I was free to have unprotective sex if I wanted (but safe sex was still advised). There's my backstory which I guess people might find useful to know of, my questions are as follows: Is my penis likely to be permanently scarred from the freezing treatment?
