I just started a new relationship.. It's phenomenal and we've both felt that we're in love. I care deeply for her, but I don't know how to tell her about the fact that I have Herpes. Does anyone have advice on how to break the news?

I have had the illness for 5 years now.. rarely get outbreaks and am not using supressive treatments. I suppose a minor outbreak every 6 months or something for a few days.
She's a virgin. BTW, I'm 28 and she's 24. We've been dating for about a month and have not had sex. However we've had some amazing times with one another and done everything but. Each time, while elated, I'm filled with pain and frustration. She's asking for sex..
God this is a crappy situation. She's a gal I could see marrying and she feels the same about me. Thanks so much for your help!
