Do You Have Trouble Finding Someone To Date Because Of HIV And/or Your Age? How Do You Handle It?

Do You Have Trouble Finding Someone To Date Because Of HIV And/or Your Age? How Do You Handle It?

I live in a under-educated part of the country, where if you are honest you are typically shunned. As long as they don't know, all seems to be well. Ignorance is indeed bliss.

At 36, undetectable for 8 years, and soon to be divorced, I've come to discover that a majority of people seem to think a relationship with someone else is supposed to "complete" them. I've been there and done that and the truth to the matter is that no one can make you complete except for yourself. A partner in crime shouldn't be a complement to your life but help supplement your life and vice versa. Being held responsible entirely for the others' happiness is a weight no one can hold; we are all human, make mistakes, cause each other grievances. It's what we do after that counts and defines your character, even if you are the only one aware of your actions after the fact.

I've grown into a man that is unapologetic in how I speak. I'm blunt and upfront when we are first getting to know one another. I could hide it to wait and see how the date reacts to me, but then I'm not being me.
