I’ve disappeared on you all and it’s fully unintentional. I think since my breakup I’ve been spending most of my time reorganizing my life and creating a new path for myself and this blog has fallen to the side. I intend to get back on track. I also think a lot of the things I so confidently discussed in the past, like navigating the dating world with herpes, are things I now have to take my own advice on since I’m back in the dating world myself.

It’s obviously always easier to spout dating advice within the comforts of a relationship, but now that I’m on the other side again I realize an unknown future can be both invigorating and somewhat intimidating. I’m apprehensive to get back out there but I’m also extremely excited at the endless possibilities an uncertain future holds. I hope as with previous posts, that future posts continue to help bring perspective or at least make you all feel less alone in going through this. I also think it’s important to remember relationships are always unpredictable. Simply because I found a man to date me even though he didn’t have herpes and I do, doesn’t mean that was the end of my journey. With that relationship ending, I now get to go through the process again and who knows where I’ll end up. I hope you’ll all continue to join me and each other in discussing all the various sides of life with herpes and dating in general. I know it’s helped me feel far less alone when I receive comments and emails from you all. I’ll be back with a more interesting post soon!
