Dating and HIV

Posted on February 23, 2018

Dating while living with HIV is complex. Because of the stigma of HIV, sharing this private information with someone you are just getting to know can be daunting. Facing these ups and downs is best done with support from others with HIV who understand the hopes and fears.

On myHIVteam, the social network and online support group for those living with HIV, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Dating is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about dating:

Does anyone struggle with dating since having HIV?

If you're single, how has dating been since knowing your HIV status?

Are there any dating sites for the positive community?

Do you have trouble finding someone to date because of HIV and/or your age?

Here are some conversations about dating:

I told my potential partner about my diagnosis...

Why is dating so hard?

Chatting with someone on a dating site and I mentioned my HIV status.
