im gay and a lovely man started chatting to me recently and openly admitted he was hiv positive. his bf had cheated on him while they were having unprotected sex and gave it to him. it appears to have changed his life. I was taken back by his honesty and what a great guy he seems to be. he expected me to stop chatting to him immediately. We have quickly become friends and there is a potential for something to happen in the future, if we both want it too. he has been through so much and is continuing to do so. it would be great to be there for him and look after him. What i found most interesting is that theres a lot of info out there for non hiv + hiv dating. in addition to things like condoms, the Prep medication seems like a good way of reducing the likelihood of getting it. everyone deserves to be loved and its nice to know that these sorts of things exist to make dating between people of a different status more possible. if anyone has more experience on this topic, i would love to hear it.
