I held off on sex for as long as I could, but it got more and more difficult.
One day, my new beau reassured me, "I'm disease-free, I just got tested.
Each time I had an outbreak, which for me consisted of a very small cluster of blisters that lasted two or three days, I'd pretend I had a yeast infection and say I couldn't have sex until it was gone.
By the time I finished college in 1994, the possibility of spreading the virus even when you didn't have an outbreak had become more widely accepted by health care providers.
It was as if I had just re-entered mainstream society.
Many feature chat rooms, bulletin boards, treatment information, personal ads, and social groups around the world.
A friend of mine had recently married a guy she met on the Web -- proving that not every Internet date is a psycho -- so I gave it a try.
My friend said I was too much like a sister, and he couldn't continue. I worried about how that incident would affect our friendship.
Little did I know my worries would extend far beyond that concern.
