I'm trying to figure out how to date being HIV pos. In my part of the country (Dallas) the HIV community is surprisingly small especially if your a hetero male. We're like unicorns around here. I've really begun to despair about ever finding anyone. Geeesh I sound pathetic but that's the ugly truth. What in the world am I going to do?

Hello and thanks for your comments. How do you handle revealing your status to a new partner if you don't mind me asking? It seems a lot of members in this group have similar questions.

Well neither one of us handled it well.. he is leaving me..hebsaid he loves me but too scared that he will catch the virus.

Sorry to hear that . Their are medications out there to reduce the virus and with protection and education and honesty. Why isn't that enough.? How can Fear be more powerful than facts and education?

@Lee__R It happens a lot. Try online dating. I'm "out" about my status on my Tinder profile and I've actually had people tell me I should be ashamed for being on dating platform. As if just the mere act of going on date with me is dangerous.
We really need to improve education in this country

@healthyme I agree with you. It's not dangerous going on a date...lol
I haven't told anyone about my status yet, I'm not ashamed tho. I do want to date and when I decide to I will disclose this info. I mean I want people to know before they get to a date, they way there is no misunderstanding. Yes, people are uneducated and too afraid to learn. Fuck them!!! Someone will appreciate my honesty.

I'm glad this topic is posted, and it seems like there's no good answer to the original question. I tried waiting for a few dates and then bringing it up - no good. I'm not planning on advertising it on a dating site either because I am somewhat ashamed. It really seems like a lifetime of loneliness is destined to happen.
