Dating a hiv positive women 50 and older online dating sites
Finally, I took out the note cards I had made to ensure I wouldn't miss saying anything important—this was the first time I was disclosing to someone I could see myself dating. Then he walked me to the train and I finally went home.
I felt so relieved, but I was also still nervous: I had gotten past the hard part, but I didn't know what to expect next.
He has to get tested regularly, and I have a strict medication schedule to help me stay healthy.
There are also other looming difficulties: I know I want kids someday, for example, and that will mean a different set of obstacles, such as conceiving without risking transmission to my partner and decreasing the risk of giving HIV to my child before, during, and after birth. When I first told my mother about my fears of disclosing, one thing she said was that it would take a strong person to be with me. But I've come to realize that I also have to be a strong person to be with someone else.
At this point, my boyfriend and I have been dating for two and a half years.
My teen years were a bit different than my classmates’ because, on top of my studies, they also included travelling to England to bury my father and caring for my mom, who was in and out of the hospital and passed away in 2012 from cancer.
If it weren't for my amazing friends and family—and countless positive reactions after previous disclosures—I don't think I would have had the courage to disclose in a romantic setting so willingly.
Disclosure is never easy—whether it's disclosure about your HIV status, family history, mental illness, sexual orientation, or anything else.
