Herpes blues

Recently diagnosed - a small patch of bumps on my pelvis about four inches away from my dick, probably transmitted during some very vigoruous grinding. It's estimated that between 25% and 50% of gay men have it, but most (80 or 90%) don't know they have it (standard STD test batteries don't screen for herpes). Not medically serious, but it's incurable. I'm pretty much done with hooking up, but I don't know what my odds are with dating anymore. I generally am pretty fortunate in the romance department, but have found myself pushing men away to avoid the conversation and rejection. Has anyone ever found love with/as an HSV-positive guy?
