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?

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.

Anyone else experience similar… read more

Dating

I have known I am HIV + since July 2016. I have been reluctant to date because I am afraid to divulge my status due to the stigma associated with the disease. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I try to date HIV individuals on different dating sites. But so far, no luck. It seems that most females are looking for someone younger than themselves or they are just reluctant to reach out. I'm 63… read more

My situation is an odd one. I have been dating the same person for the last 20 years. We met when when we were young and dumb and in our 20s. I was positive then and he was not. A few years after we… read more

Have You Ever Felt Preyed Upon By Someone HIV Neg On A Poz Dating Site/support Group. Is It Ok To Ask A Social Media Friend For Money?

Have You Ever Felt Preyed Upon By Someone HIV Neg On A Poz Dating Site/support Group. Is It Ok To Ask A Social Media Friend For Money?

Ok so this just happened and it makes me so mad that people think it's ok to Prey on men and women with HIV seriously! This woman messaged me on Facebook I somehow became friends with her through a World AIDS group on Facebook anyway she asked me for $100 and I politely explained that I lived on what might seem like a lot of money to someone in an impoverished nation but that it barely makes ends meet and that I support myself and my child on a very small amount of money by myself and it was not… read more

Dating And HIV Positive

Dating And HIV Positive

So who has dated since finding out they were positive?

I am going on a date with a girl I've known since high school tomorrow. She knows I'm positive, but not necessarily what I'm looking for! I'm going to get practice! Is that messed up? She knows I'm not serious. I have found since being positive, dating hasn't been my first priority. I need to break that ice though. Is anyone else the same way?

Any Other BISEXUAL Men Out

Any Other BISEXUAL Men Out

CALLING ALL BI MEN
Because we have a foot in both the straight AND gay community BISEXUAL men have faced a higher level of stigma for having HIV. Then add the fact we were already being maligned, told we don’t exist and that we just need to ‘Pick a side’ has been devastating to those of us who are identify as bisexual. As a carrier for the HIV virus, bi men are accused of bringing HIV from the gay to the straight community
And things have not changed that much for the better. Recently I… read more
