Dating a hiv person
There are a lot of discussions we can have about emotions, especially if you are HIV positive and you are looking for a serious relationship.
Let's talk about it A reader sent us his question about how to date with HIV. Just about everyone I meet with HIV uses it as an excuse to sleep around. Online Dating Immediately, I wonder where you're looking for love. Unfortunately most of the dating websites and apps tend to set HIv aside, but try a search for "hiv positive dating" and a ton of sites pop up dedicated to dating poz.
Yet the stigma surrounding HIV still leeches its way into the everyday, affecting how we flirt, date, and fuck.“I have absolutely turned down someone because they were HIV positive,” David Robertson says.
“It’s all because of fear.” Robertson is the creator of Hope Is, an empowerment center and civic engagement movement in Chicago, who was diagnosed with being HIV-positive in 2007.
Not all neg guys are opposed to dating someone positive.
Think about it: your personality hasn't changed, you are still the same person. HIV does not define you as a person, always remember that. The most important rule is to protect yourself in every way, not just physically but emotionally as well.We are used to think that some details like being HIV positive can make a big difference in dating, but that is not so true.It’s a way of normalizing, as well; the more we know, the less afraid we’ll be and the more likely we will be to act with a well-informed sense of caution, instead of ignorant recklessness.This type of heedlessness, fueled by a new understanding that HIV isn’t the death sentence it once was, is dangerous.
