Hiv positive guys for dating
Life expectancy for people with HIV who are diagnosed when their immune system is still robust is expected to be more or less the same as anyone else’s.
I’ve been living with diagnosed HIV for many years.Monogamy is great, don’t get me wrong, but it can fail.The truth is most HIV infection is a result of sex with someone who doesn’t know their status.I’ve always been a firm believer that individuals have a right to work out the sexual strategy that is right for them – and that included rejecting people on the basis of their HIV status. We’ve known for some years now that someone on treatment is very unlikely to pass on the virus. Well you’re more likely to be infected from sex using a condom with someone who isn’t on treatment than you are to be infected from sex without a condom with someone who is on treatment.So when someone says that they’re going to avoid John because he has HIV (and is on treatment), and then runs off with Jonah, whose status is unknown, they’re taking a far bigger sexual risk.There are a variety of reasons why I've stopped talking to a potential suitor before.
Despite his overwhelming good looks, sometimes, the guy just isn't who I thought he'd be.
I was still on edge, however, viciously browsing the internet for the number of a free clinic. Of course, my intentions weren't to treat him like some wild animal. I wasn't well-informed on the subject, and I didn't want to come off like a complete idiot. As it turns out, while HIV diagnoses continues to drop, with an increase in testing and prevention efforts, more than 1.2 million people continue to live with it in the US.
Even scarier, one in eight aren't aware they're infected. Luckily, he had never been able to share his story before.
Maybe I thought his mannerisms were off-putting, or he might've been a bit too feminine or too masculine for my liking. But then, I stopped talking to someone because they had HIV... The guy told me his status after two relatively successful dates. As I grew more overwhelmed and flustered, he explained we never would have had sex without him revealing his status to me.
He didn't have to do that, but as our conversation gradually shifted in the direction of sex, it was bound to come up. I had never met someone who was HIV-positive, and frankly, I knew close to nothing about the disease at all. We had never gotten to the point of anything close to sex, but we did make out in my room. I had been feeling sick the days prior, so was I now infected? And he also explained more about his low strain and how undetectable it was due to the medicine he was on.
