I can't say for sure that there is a correlation, but after I got diagnosed with herpes I connected with people that I've found more attractive than before I found out I have herpes. I've told all my partners I have herpes.
I've found that the more attractive, high-confidence people who don't sweat the small stuff don't seem to care so much. Perhaps they don't consider a harmless skin condition to be a threat.
You can chose to be a winner or a loser. It's up to you.
