Male-Diagnosed About Two Years Ago. Finding it Difficult to Cope.

by W
(Albuquerque, NM)

I’m 21 years old. I contracted GH about two years ago, but just found out about 5-6 months ago. I’ve only slept with two women and I just can’t understand how this happened when I was responsible and did not sleep around.

I’m having a hard time dealing with GH because I feel like my dating and sexual life is over. I get so depressed when I see a beautiful woman around campus that I could see dating or just getting to know because I’m almost positive that she will be horrified when I tell her. I’m not a tool or a douche bag that sleeps around and I truly love and respect women. I value their company and the beauty they exude.

I feel like the only option is to go back to my ex because she is the one I got it from, but I really do not want to go back to my ex because we did not have a healthy relationship. I feel like it would be extremely difficult to be with another woman because when I tell her, she will think I’m disgusting and either never talk to me again and spread the word.

Or in another case, I would only be friends with that girl because she would never want to be intimate with me. I guess I just want some advice from people who kind of feel the way I do. I want to eventually get back into the dating scene but I don’t know how and I’m scared. Thank you.
