POLL: Going viral

Friday, July 15, 2011 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... Q: At what point in a relationship do you tell a woman that you have herpes? I need to know because the last time, I didn’t do it until we were actually in bed and naked and making out. She was very upset, but I was scared to bring it up sooner, because I didn’t want to scare her off.
POLL: When's the best time to tell someone you have herpes?
9% (185) First date
83% (1586) When things start to look serious
4% (89) Just before the first time you have sex
2% (44) Somewhere between "Was it good for you" and "I have an early meeting tomorrow."
0% (6) Never

POLL: Temptation Next Door

Friday, July 08, 2011 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... Q: My husband and I have been married for two years. About six months ago, we moved to another city for his job. I haven’t been able to find a job for myself yet. Meanwhile, we’ve become good friends with a couple in our new neighborhood. The woman works and her husband works from home. We’ve shared dinner with them a half dozen times. Here’s the problem: I am strongly attracted to this man and he to me. We’ve only been alone twice, once when he was dropping off something he borrowed and another time at his house. Both times, the sexual tension was so strong it was unbearable. I am sick over this. I can’t tell my husband. We can’t afford to move. But I don’t know how long I can hold out. I fantasize about this man. Help!
POLL: What should she do about her tempting neighbor?
3% (71) Move to a different neighborhood. It's cheaper than a divorce.
22% (473) Talk to your husband about your attraction.
2% (53) Supress the emotion. It will go away.
3% (73) A little next-door nookie never hurt.
11% (230) Just make sure you're never, ever alone with this guy.
56% (1162) If you're this easily tempted, you need to fix something in your marriage
