How to tell a new partner you have herpes?

Forgive me if this has already been covered but it's been stressing me out. I have recently ended a four year relationship (I am cis female and was with a cis male) and that relationship gave me genital herpes. While I am no where near ready to date again, the idea of it greatly stresses me out as I've never had to tell someone other than a close friend I have herpes. And close friends aren't effected by hearing it as much as a potential sex partner! My questions are: what is the best way to broach the topic? How soon? How do I word it? And also what has been your experience with people's reactions? I am trying to mentally prepare the best that I can so I really appreciate any help! Thank you all <3
