POLL: A Burning Issue...

Friday, September 12, 2008 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... Q: What's the proper etiquette for telling someone that they gave you an STD? I've been dating this guy for six weeks and recently developed a burning sensation. I went to my doctor, who says it's chlamydia. She gave me antibiotics, which will kill the infection, but obviously I cannot sleep with this guy again. He told me he wasn't dating anyone else. Now that I know he was lying I'm inclined to break up with him. Should I tell him about the STD or just break it off?

73% (793) Face to face, just like when it happened.
 
9% (101) A letter, e-mail or phone call.
 
2% (31) Give him/her one back.
 
14% (154) Violence is never the answer. But...
