When should you tell someone you're dating that you have genital herpes?

ANSWER

It's up to you to decide the right time to tell a date that you have genital herpes.

Follow two rules: First, don't wait until after having sex. Second, don't wait until you're just about to have sex -- in which case the attraction may be too strong for either of you to think rationally and act responsibly.
