This is what it’s like for a person that contracts a sexually transmitted disease, otherwise known as an STD.
While most STDs are curable with antibiotics, there are classes of STDs that aren’t spread via bacteria.
But what does a person do when their adventures in dating takes a very wrong turn?
What happens when the thrill of “hooking up” leaves a person with a diagnosis that makes them feel “messed up”?
For the single person that carries one of these STDs, it can seem and feel like they are the most vile and unworthy person in the world.
The diagnosis will forever change life as the infected person knows it.
At one point in time, a person infected with HIV had nothing to look forward to in life.
Fortunately, at this moment in history, a person with HIV can live a long, prosperous life filled with friends, and even romance!
There is no perfect formula to dating, because dating in of itself is all about trial and error.
For all the published books in stores regarding dating, the only way to be successful at it is to put one’s self out there, and simply date.
These STDs are viruses, and while there are currently treatments to stabilize the disease, there are no permanent cures for them.
These viruses are diseases known as Herpes, HPV, and HIV/AIDS.
