Unfortunately after a discussion on Monday he has decided to end the relationship. I tried my best to explain the situation to him and tried to give him some perspective on the issue. He called my ideas 'irrelevant' and wasn't open to hearing about my story of dealing with the shock when I was first told.

I feel like he's come to this decision without thinking everything through properly. Personally, I don't think you can know 100% what you're going to feel like about something like after 1 week of knowing... but there's no convincing him otherwise.

I'm pretty upset right now. I could really see a future with him and he seemed to be everything that I wanted in a guy.

I'm not sure what to do with myself now, I've never had a relationship end because of HD. How am I going to tell anyone about the risk in the future?

PS. We are both 23 and I am still at risk (not testing yet).

Hey sweetie you are bigger better and beautiful....don't you forget that!!
HD might be in your family but don't let it control everything you do!!
As for him well love his loss not yours!!!
Get your girlfriends together and think of NUMBER ONE


P.S remember you cannot make everyone happy.....cos you're not a bottle of wine and life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning how to dance in the rain xxxxx

You're so lucky to have somebody there to support you! I hope I can find that too :)

Good luck with everything,

Do not worry Ashy, i hope you would get someone very soon who cares for you seriously regardless of any situation and will stand by you forever.
