    Hi everyone!

    I met this guy who HAS NEVER HAD MONO before (is a dr and has checked his test) and is really scared that I can give it to him since there is literature suggesting that mono could be the cause.

    He's getting a test to see if his body has "certain antibodies?" that could help him fight it off.

    He's very busy with an many responsibilities so I understand. Any recommendations?

    My bet is that he will lose interest in me but I am prepared.

    ktn...he has never had the epstein barr virus? that is unusual.

    you aren't going to give it to him. you had the acute infection long ago. it is possible you might shed the virus in small amounts but he is not going to get mono from you unless you have the acute infection again.

    he seems a little nuts for a doctor. if he hasn't been exposed to EBV yet, he will most likely be exposed eventually. dating you would HELP him!

    Sorry to hear about him.. I don't think he would get Mono from you. I know it's a bummer to have to deal with this. I think there's someone better out there for you though.
