There are not shortcuts with dating and while online dating sites lend you easy access to photos and information of others looking for a date you may not find your dream date or end up being misled on information. And well, if you are HIV positive, it can add a whole new dimension to your efforts of dating. Finding love in face of being infected with a disease as deadly as HIV is not that difficult however. Catering to single and other HIV positive people there are a few dating platforms where you can hunt for other HIV positive people. Not that being HIV positive you cannot join regular dating sites but the advantage of being on an HIV dating site is that it saves you trouble of going through the uncomfortable phase of disclosing sexual preferences and HIV status.
Sites like POZ personals have community forums and mentoring for men and women who’re HIV positive. You’ll find them connecting through chats and actual dating as well and there’s lot of important information on HIV related health issues and advise on different problems. Many of these HIV dating sites are free for beginners and for basic membership but you pay if you want to get higher features like checking out other profiles and photo sharing.
While there are no rules really for regular dating, on HIV dating sites you’ll find people interacting with each other with a clear discussion of their health issues and whether they’re gay, straight or bi before going ahead with any sexual intimacy. If you’re HIV positive and want to meet interesting people to date through these sites be sure to always disclose your health status so not to keep the person you date in dark. Also if you go on to meet the person and have sexual contact it’s important to practice safe habits so that even though both dating partners are HIV positive you don’t end up passing on other STIs. Going in for an STI test is actually a great idea before indulging in sexual acts.
