This Relationship Has Gone Cold(sore)

| Romantic | April 16, 2014

(I’m two months into a new relationship, and talking to my boyfriend during a break. Due to a cold sore, I’ve instituted a no kissing rule until it’s gone, as I don’t want him catching it.)

Me: “It doesn’t make sense, though. I haven’t had cold sores this often since I was eleven. Now, I have them all the time, but I’ve hardly had any in over a decade.”

Boyfriend: “You don’t have to worry about me, though. I don’t get cold sores. I hardly get sick at all!”

Me: “Yeah, but the worst case scenario here is that we pass them back and forth via kissing, and then we’d never get rid of them. I’d rather we just wait until it’s gone.”

Boyfriend: “But it’s not like you’re gonna infect me.”

Me: “Just because you don’t get any, doesn’t mean you don’t carry it. Then you’ll end up infecting me again, anyway.”

Boyfriend: “But I hardly ever get sick! I drink out of the same bottles as [Friend] all the time, and he has lots of cold sores, but I never get any!”

Me: *rubs my forehead* “I take it back. These cold sores suddenly make a lot of sense.”
