What to do ?

I am a 26 year old that just found out yesterday at a routine check up that I have HSV2. Over all I felt like my Dr. slapped me in the face with the news. Over the duration of my sex life I have used condoms and all kinds of methods to prevent this. But I guess I was not careful enough.

I am currently dating someone for 3 months now. I met him about 11 months ago but we have just now started having sex. I believe he might have given it to me. Only because for the past 4 years I was negative for everything . Before we started having sex I went ahead and got tested one more time to be sure as well as he. My results were in paper format and I was able to show him but he never showed me his.

Now after I left the Dr. office I felt the need to be extremely honest with him and when I went into detail of the situation. He did not take it lightly not that I expected him to do so because it is not a conversation you want to have with someone you care about but I felt the need to tell him. So he sprung on me his religion and basically gave me a 2% hope of our relationship to continue. I mentioned to him to please reach out to his Dr. and get tested.

I never pointed the figure at him I think I took this news as hard as I needed to take it but I let him know that it would not change how I feel for him nor change what we have going on. Yet after me telling him this I personally feel that I have lost all chance with a great man that is scared to commit to a woman with an STD .
