She is pretty sure the guy she got it from was a former ex-boyfriend she was with for about 5 months.

One of my single friends is getting back into the dating world after recovering from a long term relationship - she is in her early to mid 30s and was diagnosed last year with HPV.
She tells me about 90% of the guys never call her back after the news.
My thought on the subject is that she should not be giving out that info until at least the 2nd or maybe the 4th date.
HPV is a common STD but its not Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, AIDS or Herpes- and its not like she slept with 20 guys to have gotten it (she knows which of the 4 boyfriends in her life who gave it to her).
She says she will even go far as posting it on her online dating profile so she won't be accused of deceiving guys.
She claims its better to tell a guy up front about it so there are no surprises later on.
I personally think its a personal matter and not something that should be disclosed on a first date.
Its like giving a reason to not get a 2nd date and she isn't very good at 'marketing' herself in the dating world, per se (she is attractive, but she doesnt make an effort to break out of her comfort zone to try new foods, new hobbies, meet new people and assumes her looks are "enough" to get a guy to keep dating her.thats another thread topic..lol).
