A hot topic was discussed by members on the largest herpes dating site PositiveSingles.com. “If becoming serious in a relationship do you expose how many people you've been intimate with? Is it important that the other person knows how many people you've been with? Or vice versa, do you feel you need to know about the person's past? Will it change anything?”
Members on this STD dating site had very different responses and both parts are understandable. Most participants think the question is personal. They prefer to disclose their STD to potential partners, but refuse to talk about their sexual history. The past is the past. Just as one member said, “But as far as disclosure, absolutely yes. Disclose your STD to any potential sexual partner. But if disclosure isn't the issue, there's no point in telling your sexual history. Your past is your past -- unless it reflects your current behavior.” How many people they have been intimate with has nothing to do with the person they are. When this question is posed to them, they are judged for their past.
Others hold an opposite opinion. “People not disclosing is why a lot of us are here in the first place. Also, I'd rather tell someone upfront, that way if they can't handle it I don't waste my time and possibly get attached, just to be rejected later.” They would tell their partner upfront. If their partner refused to accept their past, there is no need to move forward. They emphasized the power of honesty, which can make a relationship work.
It’s never been easy for people who are living with an STD to date. Privacy and honesty are equally important for people with STDs. It does no good for people to pose such a question directly to their partner unless he/she is willing to tell.
