haha, I’ve got a herpes story I think you’ll enjoy, can’t remember if I’ve told it before on the forum but I will anyway.
A mate of mine has the herps (yes - it really is a mate of mine and not me so knock it off with that shit), and he started dating this girl. Now, herpes is the gift that lasts a lifetime so obviously at some point you have to come clean with your girl that you’ve got it.
So he’s been dating this chick for a little while and he’s really super into her, but they’ve not had sex yet and he knows he has to tell her before they do. He really likes her so he’s trying to do the right thing.
They’re getting down to business one night and he’s starting to panic because he’s not told her yet. Things are getting hot and heavy so he knows it has to be now, and just as he’s about to tell her she says:
Her - There’s something I need to tell you.
Him - What?
Her - I have herpes.
Him - Me too!
And it turned into this weirdly tender moment where they bonded over their shared grossness. Quite touching, in a way…
