A: Try not to think of your status as the cause of your perils. Your status doesn't define who you are and it's not the Scarlet letter you think it is.Not all neg guys are opposed to dating someone positive.
I want people to be able to have open and honest discussions about HIV and about what they know or suspect about their own status.
I think it’s vital if we’re going to reduce new infections and challenge stigma.
A blanket rejection of anyone with HIV means that fewer men feel able to be open and honest and this provides a foundation for ongoing ignorance and fear. This article is Matthew’s own opinion and not necessarily the view of GMFA as an organisation.
We are used to think that some details like being HIV positive can make a big difference in dating, but that is not so true.
There are a lot of discussions we can have about emotions, especially if you are HIV positive and you are looking for a serious relationship.
