The entire date I was staring at his lip and wondering if I will end up with a cold sore since I made out with him only hours before his outbreak. I have never in my life had a cold sore and I don't want to start getting them now.
Although telling someone you’re interested in can be intimidating, there are different ways to do it, and you might find one easier than the others.In the past, Carlson would put the herpes conversation on the table quickly.Around two-thirds of people worldwide under age 50 have herpes simplex 1, according to the World Health Organization, and around one in every six Americans between ages 14 and 49 has genital herpes, usually caused by herpes simplex 2, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Both Davis and Carlson eventually moved past their initial panic and saw herpes for what it is: an infection many people have that happens to usually get passed through sexual contact.So don't discount someone just because they get cold sores.
I think I read that 70-80% of the population has HSV-1 anyway. First,he could actually have TYPE 2 Herpes on his lips...yes,that does happen.
I sure don't want it so I am hypervigilant and avoid all oral activity when I even suspect he's going to get an outbreak (too much sun or stress can bring them on). This guy will not know unless he gets the cold sore cultured at the time of active outbreak,or he gets tested. If this guy goes down on OP,he could potentially give her Type 1 genital herpes,thats if he has Type 1 herpes. The herpes virus sheds even when no symptoms appear.
It is almost exactly the same, different virus but functionally no different at all.

When I meet up with him I notice he has a cold sore on his upper lip that definitely wasn't there yesterday.
Knowing that cold sores are a strand of the herpes virus I freaked out.
