That's my question. Why and why not.
Would you date someone with oral herpes?

An estimated 50-80% of all adults have oral herpes. It just stays dormant in many people. Usually it activates when your immunity levels are weaker, like when you're getting sick.
Most people don't even know they have it because it never activates. The guy your dating likely has it already, but its simple. Don't have sex during an outbreak.0
Well, of course I would. The staggering majority of people experience oral herpes (it sounds far less disconcerting when it's called a cold sore LOL) at some point during their lives.
Would I be kissing all over them or trying for sexy action during that time? Probably not, no. I mean, they're not the cutest looking things, but really it's all about both people's health. You just wait a week or whatever and let it pass.0
"Guy im dating is afraid ill give it to him, or get it on his penis."... it's real risk, he could get genital herpes if you give him a BJ without condom.
However, how about not give oral sex unprotected... and no at all during outbreaks, if that's doable then I don't see a problem?0
No that's not me but if I knew for sure you were going to be with me for the rest of my life, which I highly doubt then maybe you have a good chance. Preferably Id rather take up the butt0
A lot of people unknowingly have oral herpes but to kiss someone or who engage in oral sex or sexual intercourse is a sure way of picking up either the first strain or the second strain of the virus.0
Didn't you ever have fever blisters?0
Sorry that would deffenatly freak me out aswell.0
Probably not, I don't want herpes. (Unless I have it and am symptomless...) There'll be a vaccine eventually, so once that's out then sure.
I think they can be contagious even when there's not an outbreak (just less likely to spread it to you), so I think it is a reasonable reason not to date someone as you can't be intimate with them. (Unless you have or don't mind catching herpes...)0
Many people suffer from the Herpes-Virus, so I don't think it's a dealbreaker.
However, I understand that he wouldn't want to kiss you while your herpes is actually visible as it's most contagious at that time.0
