Hoping for good advice - when to tell possible new partner about STD?

No judgypants please.........

17 years ago I caught genital herpes off my then boyfriend. I later got married and have since separated - told my ex dh before we did the deed so he could make informed decision.
I have been on my own for 4 years and now have possibility of actual meeting of a man through dating site and possibility of sex! Do I wait until I meet him and see if we fancy each other or do I tell him before so he can decide if he wants to meet or not? We have done the usual e-mail/texting/phoning and both keen to meet - been slightly flirty but not too rude...

Any suggestions on the etiquette of telling about STDs?

No experience personally, but I would say after the first few dates (assuming you won't be "doing the deed" after the 1st date). You can't really know if you fancy someone from communicating, so I would meet up and if things are going well between you then bring it up.
Sorry I cant be more help
