Wow, and, I went on the poz site to find friends, and maybe more, I received a couple of flirts, one person said they was bisexual, and could I text him and be friends, I texted him and was having a good conversation when out of the blue he started talking about he was a nudist, I said cool I don't discriminate against color, religion, or sex, then he said he loved his mom and sister so much that he had 7 kids by each of them, and said he got his 5 daughters pregnant also, and then he sent me a d##k pic, so I reported him to pop, hopefully they will block he off the site, so do Ppl pray on us because of our health problems or do they think we're just do anything to get Ppl attention
