Hi, I'm Donna Barnes. I'm a life and dating coach, and owner of NY Dating Coach here in New York City. In this clip, we'll talk about how to tell your partner you have herpes, and this is an absolute must do. If you have herpes, it doesn't mean you're horrible or anything, but you do need to share that information because it is contagious. And unfortunately, there will be some people that won't want to be in a relationship with you because of that, but that doesn't mean that you're any less of a person and you need to know that upfront. So if you're getting into any kind of a... You don't need to share that the second you meet them. It's just when you bring intimacy into the relationship. And all the better reason to wait longer to bring intimacy into the relationship so that they've developed an emotional attachment to you and they can feel more comfortable with the situation. So as it's getting towards an intimate situation, then just be very frank -- "I have to share something with you." Tell them straight out what exactly your situation is, how it affects them, how they can or cannot get it, and just be really honest. It's the only way that they'll be okay with it. This is Donna Barnes from New York City.
