In this day and age, with HIV being so common in the gay community, I would think that talking about your HIV status would be a normal part of dinner date conversation.
But talking about it while dating can still be taboo and awkward.
How do we make this happen without me getting infected? Many sero-different couples (where one is HIV positive and the other is not), continue to have loving relationships. Viral load tests tell you how much virus there is in your body.
And what about the day I marry her and we want to have kids? Firstly it is really good that you love and support and want to start a family with your girlfriend.
It can be an intense and exciting time, but it can also be difficult.• A local support group of other young people living with HIV may be one way to share your feelings and experiences.• Living with HIV shouldn’t stop you from having happy and fulfilling relationships and a healthy sex life when you are ready.How did you feel when that guy said he's "not ready for that complication"? I can see the logic of it, because you don't have to explain everything all the time, but it's not the way forward, because we don't need to segregate ourselves. I'm met HIV-positive people who say, "Why go for a negative person?You have to wear condoms, condoms are vile." The thing about having HIV – you stumble across a lot of stupidity.
