Online dating for hiv positive people nick jonas not dating selena gomez
There is no right time or way to do it and you don’t have to disclose either.
I choose to disclose because I don’t think that it is something that needs to be kept a secret.
Other people would just say, “Thank you for telling me and I am on Pr EP”, and we would continue the conversation.
This is how it should be, considering how far we have come with scientific developments.
Just like my millennial peers, I mostly meet people online through dating apps.
One common feature of the apps I use is the option to display your HIV status or the last time you had an STI test.
Right now, even though I am open about my HIV status in my daily life and I give speeches on sexual health and HIV, I do not display my HIV status on my dating app profiles.
They usually say something like, “Oh you are one of those LGBT activists, aren’t you?After this, some people I was talking to stopped responding.Some people messaged me, thinking I had made a mistake, trying to be helpful and asking me to correct my status. It started getting too much and all my conversations ended up discussing HIV, which I was doing enough of in my daily life, and so I removed it.One night, I saw someone whose status said “on Pr EP”.I remembered mine was empty, so I made it “positive and undetectable”.
Otherwise, it can happen in a moment that you least expect and make things awkward and uncomfortable for you.
