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.

I find that at 56 I have become completely comfortable with the man I am and with what I need from a mate. It seems that this clarity coupled with my status creates a very difficult set of circumstances which makes meeting someone both compatible and mutually attracted even harder.

Has HIV Stopped You From Dating?

Has HIV Stopped You From Dating?

Unfortunately, I have been rejected several times when I disclosed my HIV status....so, I’ve given up. I no longer wanted to be rejected and after a couple of times, I began to feel unwanted.
It’s been 8...9 years since I’ve been with anyone. I’ve simply stopped dating.
Has anyone else felt the same way? Has HIV stopped you from even trying to date?
