[Video]How Do I Tell Him I Have Herpes?
There is a good time AND a good way to talk about your “baggage.”

If you are over 40 and dating, it is extremely likely that you have something about your past or your present you’re afraid to share when you meet new men. As I talked about in my last Grownup Girls’ Night Out, there is a good time AND a good way to talk about your “baggage.”


I’ve discussed this in previous posts but today I’m focusing on this one thing: when and how to share that you have an STD; in particular herpes. I get so many emails asking me about this. I have many coaching clients who ask.


After researching this topic, I see why: The herpes simplex virus-2 is epidemic,especially among women 50 and over.


Why is it so prevalent? It’s believed the reason is because since post menopausal women don’t need birth control, we stop practicing safe sex. Please…read this article and learn the facts about how to avoid getting and spreading genital herpes.
