Mutual sex dating
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.
I met dozens of electronic pen pals and eventually went on several dates.
Little did I know my worries would extend far beyond that concern.
I knew enough about sexually transmitted diseases to know that I had herpes, but I didn't know exactly what to do.
As I sat in the college health center waiting to see a doctor, I watched my very short-lived social life drift by.
Since he was disease-free, he refused to wear condoms, instead choosing the scrub-down -- something that would do nothing to prevent herpes transmission.
That relationship eventually came to an end, leaving me worried yet again about getting back in the dating game.
