How to Navigate Online Dating with an STD Reveal all information when you're ready, but before engaging in sexual activity. You're an honest guy who doesn't beat around the bush, that's great. The key is clear, open and informed communication. Encourage your partner to ask questions.
As you talk, tell your partner facts about the STD. If you can't answer all of your partner's questions, it's okay. Say you don't know and then go to a health clinic or search the Internet together for more information.
