I have wrote on here a couple of times now and I know that I have herpes 1 downstairs. I also have it around my mouth. Is there any real difference between 1 and 2 when you have it downstairs??? One easier ot spread? Less outbreaks? Anything different? And whats the best way to tell your partner that you have it? I have not seen my lady since I found out and I'm trying to think of how to tell her. I want her to stay with me but its doubtful since sex is a huge part of the relationship... anything would help please!
