Below you will find links to local herpes social groups and herpes support groups. These groups are great places to meet other individuals who know exactly what you are going through. If you live near one of these groups I strongly encourage you to check them out.
For some, the idea of participating in a local herpes social group is very frightening. It can be incredibly intimidating to show up at one of these groups. Fortunately, most of these groups have excellent websites which allow you to ask questions and see what the group is all about. This helps you to become familiar with the group before deciding to participate.
The benefits of participating in one of these groups far outweigh the fear and anxiety of showing up. But if this is not for you or if there is not a group nearby then I encourage you to check out the other sections of this website. Another great option is a herpes forum which provides the same kind of emotional support. Also, check out the Herpes Dating eBook. It's the world's best-selling book on the topic and contains tons of valuable information.
