Dr. Beth, I am 28, single, and about 6 months out of a relationship with a woman that was quite important to me.  I feel like I am pretty well over the ending of that relationship and ready to start dating again.  The problem is that my last girlfriend had herpes.  Even though she told me about it and we tried to be safe, I still ended up getting herpes too.  Now I am worried about dating and having to tell a new partner that I have an STD.  How do I go about doing this?
