Can I date an HIV+ person? This is a question many straight men and women ask themselves after coming into contact with someone who has contracted HIV. The worst part is that you did not contract this virus in any way. You might have come into contact with someone who has it through sexual intercourse or a casual encounter. Being HIV positive does not mean that you cannot have a great relationship and start dating the right person.
Straight HIV positive people can date and have a satisfying sex life just like everybody else. The difference lies in the fact that you are living with the stigma of having the HIV virus. While living with the stigma, it is easy to get distracted by things that other people do not care about such as STDs, casual sex and weight loss. Focus on the fact that you are HIV positive and get yourself focused on the fact that you have the ability to love and be loved and that there is nothing wrong with that.
It is OK to look at others differently as long as you are not judgmental. If you are judgemental, then you may not meet up with people who are interested in the same thing that you are. If you are judgmental then you may not even find the right people to date because you are restricting your search based on your perception of who you think should not be dating. This could mean that you miss out on finding true romance.
Can I date an HIV+ person and have sex with negative people? The answer is yes. As long as you are careful and base your judgment on facts, there is nothing to worry about. There are so many positive people who have found true happiness and true love by falling in love with the right person. There is no reason why HIV+ people cannot find true love just as there is no reason why straight people cannot find true love with a gay person.
What should you look for when dating someone who has HIV? You should do everything possible to make sure you have been tested for HIV. You should have your HIV status tested and you should make sure that your date is on a monogamous relationship program. Your first date should be free and non-sexual. This will ensure that you are protected and that you are unlikely to pass it on to anyone else.
Can I date an HIV+ person and still be safe? Yes, you can. The important thing is that you know what you should not do. You need to make sure that you limit your negative behaviour like drinking or drug use. You need to make sure that your date does not have an STD so that you are not passing anything on to them. If you are sexually active and you are with someone who does have an STD, it is important to get tested before you have sex so that you can protect yourself.
How do I tell if my date is positive? Negative behaviour counts here as well. You should not be looking for signs of HIV but you should be looking for positive signs. This is especially important for people who are HIV+ or trying to get pregnant since you do not want to get infected by a pregnant HIV+ person while you are dating.
Can I date an HIV+ person and get pregnant? Yes, of course you can. You should talk to your date about your positive status before you become sexually active so that you are both aware of any potential problems. Safe sex is the best way to avoid contracting HIV since you do not know where it could come from. Safe sex means having protection when you have sex and you should always remember that no matter who your date is or how good of a date you get, you should get tested before you have sex so that you can be protected and you do not get stuck with the HIV virus.
