On what date do you talk about your history of STDs?
Of course, some people will say never. It’s irrelevant if the behavior is gone. But in truth, is there an advantage to bringing up things in your life you may be ashamed about? Is there a disadvantage to never talking about them?
If you keep stuff in your past a secret from a potential partner, how can they ever really know you? If they can’t ever know you, how can you feel known? If you aren’t fully known, can you be truly loved?
If you had something you were ashamed of, yet felt that it was very important your potential partner knew about and accepted, when and how would you bring it up? Or, if you have done such a thing, when in the course of the relationship did you bring it up, and how did it go over?
