In addition, dating isn't about whether you have a particular bacterial or viral infection.
It's about finding someone to share parts of your life with.
That would take the burden of disclosure off people who know they have an STD.
Instead, everyone would come to the table with something to say.
If the only thing you have in common is an STD, that's not the best foundation for a relationship Everyone's tolerance for STD risk is different.
For example, some people can't imagine not using barriers for safe sex.
One thing that can help is interacting with other people who have dealt with STD stigma and come out the other side.For many people, one of the scariest things about learning they have a sexually transmitted disease (STD) is the thought of dating with it. They may question how to talk about their diagnosis with a new or existing partner.If they're angry, they may want to blame someone..worry someone may blame them.There's nothing wrong with deciding to stop having safe sex with a partner.You just want to do so with open eyes about potential consequences.
Other times, it's because being open and honest about sexual health is a good way to turn up the intimacy and heat.
