Re: Advice to TOP:
Ugh. You didn't even answer his question, which was "how do I prevent cold sores." It's not about HPV at all if he wants to know the answer to that question, as Human Papilloma Virus isn't Herpes Simplex. The other question he had about getting the HPV vaccine is that there's less than a 10% chance he hasn't already had HPV at this stage in his life. Which is why they give it only to the young. Preferably before you even have sex ever, since the risk of catching it skyrockets after you start being sexually active.
Also, there's still no vaccine against Herpes. Your best hope is that your partner knows they have herpes, and they know when they're contagious, which is *only* when they've got an active sore. There's a slight overlap in contagiousness before your sore is visible, but the window for that is measured in hours, since the sores themselves also appear within hours. Beware of what look like pimples in the affected areas.

@7: I was indeed wondering that myself. You'd have to be astonishingly naive and on top of that, never been a woman on a dating site to even ask this question.
Unless you're a guy whose delicate feelings were hurt by the no-single-men rule. Then that makes total sense.

Heh. "Go off grid" is the whacko Alex Jones audience version of "Moving to Canada" I guess. But then, this same crowd has been doing crazy shit like that ever since about the 1930s if not earlier. They've also stockpiled canned goods in their personal underground bunkers as well. Same shit really, different bunker.
Also kind of describes half (at least!) of the people who live in Backwoods Alaska.
