Is Their A Stigma Between Poz People When It Comes To Dating Other Poz People?

Is Their A Stigma Between Poz People When It Comes To Dating Other Poz People?

I've noticed that some + people here were very hung up on dating and they seem to have a preference to negative people. Is that common? Or is + a plus when it comes to dating because you have commonalities? This is just a question..

Preference is for poz BUT since U=U was announced, negative people seem less concerned about dating poz - which is nice and even a little surprising. I don't go out looking for negative people - just the opposite - but have dated negative people. The most important thing is compatibility - and status may or may not fit into that category - depending on the preferences (if any) of the parties to the relationship.

Well Tom I am sorry you feel this way. I noticed that you were diagnosed in 1988 and probably were infected before then. You move to Texas. Well I was infected in 94 and my ex-partner back in 88 and my best friend died in 90 in New York City. Back then, the Stonewall age has brought us all together. The entire LGBT community, both negative and positive. Fathers, grandfather's, grandmother's, family and parents United to help those who were dying. Our community was fading. With organizations like Act Up led by Larry Kramer we voiced our position. It was the strongest and most United coalition of our time. It may have changed since but there are those of us that are still from those ages here online. So again Tom I'm sorry you had this experience but we are a loving community... the entire LGBT community both negative and positive. I hope you have a better experience here on this website ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

When I was single, a bug chaser was usually A Newbie who was negative and preferably a bottom and went out with the sole intention of attracting other hiv-positive top men for unprotected sex. My partner is negative and I am positive. And I am not a bug chaser. As far as , does it matter?.... No. ...In fact, it be easier I think if my partner were positive ....only because of protection. other than that... it's not a problem... it really depends at what stage of your lives you both are at when you meet. ... , Can he/she handle it ?..๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿงกโค๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ

I can not speak on behalf of the straight people on this site, but as for the gay men, I do usually see a stigma between poz and neg guys. The poz guys will date just about anyone (or just hookup), the neg guys want guys who are "clean, drug and std/hiv free."
