And nearly all the time, these people had no obvious sign of herpes infection while they were actively shedding virus.

I've gotten better as I've gotten older, but I've tried to be careful to protect myself. Most of the data I've read indicate somewhere around 2% per year from female to male with regular condom use.
Yesterday, my girlfriend received test results from her gyno appointment. We've been dating for 5 months, probably have sex about 3 times a week on average. I believe her when she says she didn't know she had it, else why come clean now.
It’s much harder to tell someone if they just found out they’re infected with herpes.
I've always had trouble connecting with others, so limiting the future dating pool sounds like a bad choice.
As far as I can figure if I want to try and stay with her, perhaps just suggesting we don't have sex while I sort through this is a good approach.

The vast majority -- between 75% and 90% -- don't know they are infected because they don't get, or don't notice, herpes sores on their genitals.
