Mixed HIV Status Dating

Sunday, August 30 | posted in | 2 comments


The idea of dating someone who has HIV is an ideal one where more are living with it than we actually like to think; especially here in Atlanta, GA. Dating someone who is POZ when you are negative is indeed a scary thing and you have to take as many precautions as possible without alienating the person.

If you think that it is a risk you would rather not partake in save yourself and the person from the trouble by letting them know ahead of time instead of being alright with it initially and then changing your mind because that could be absolutely devastating. No one likes to be rejected no matter what their status is but to be rejected because of a condition they have can be absolutely devastating. There are so many things that you should keep in mind while dating a POZ person and here are some tips for you.

The most important thing to know when dating someone who is HIV positive is to know your HIV status. It is suggested you get tested every six months so you remain as healthy as possible. Of course that goes hand and hand with using protection. Some of the more common ways to have the virus transmitted to you is from open sores, blood transmission, penile and vaginal secretions. You should stay protected when it comes to anal,vaginal and oral sex with latex condoms EVERY TIME.

Learn as much as possible about the HIV virus. There are an abundance of sources for you to get info like the Internet, library, health centers and even a person who is POZ.

But on top of that you must also take the time to learn about the person you are dating. That just goes hand and hand with relationships in general. The virus is just one small aspect of the person. Despite their condition they still have likes, dislikes, challenges they have in life, goals they have and what they are looking for in a relationship.

The most important thing you can do with a partner that is POZ is to offer emotional support. Be open to what they have to say. Because there are going to be days where the fact that they are living with HIV is going to overpower their emotions and they may blow up. Try to go with them to doctor visits as much as possible. The one thing that people with HIV need more than anything is the feeling that they are loved.
