I am a 32 year old Taurus woman dating a 44 year old Taurus male. A month ago we found out he gave me herpes. I get tested regularly and he had not been tested for all STD's in over a year. We started dating in February 09, no sex until mid-May 09. He had not dated anyone since November 08. I really do not believe he knew he had the virus but I do believe now he has an idea of who gave it to him because in one of our earlier conversations he talked about an incident where a woman he dated had a funny odor that bothered him.
My problem now is he is being distant with me. It is not a mean distance but it is a distance that seems like he does not know how to talk to me. I've told him that I am not upset and I want to continue seeing him and he has commented with "I don't know why" or "I really don't know what you think of me". This is a crazy situation for me because I am feeling really rejected. As a Taurus man, does he care for me? I have always felt somewhat attuned to people and I feel like he is constantly thinking of me even when we don't talk. We live in two different cities but we talk or text still everyday. We use to see each other every week but now he has not invited me to come and see him and when I invite him to come see me (he has never been to my home, he is a police officer working 3rd shift, I am a teacher who's school is back in session and my schedule is not as flexible as it was in the summer), he says that we will have to work something out.
I've never dated a Taurus man, I just want some insight into what he is possibly thinking about me. We were fine before the STD issue. Please help! He still takes my calls and he still calls me but I just want him to see that I am honestly still interested in dating him.
