There are those of us living with HIV, who carry deep emotional scars of rejection in disclosing our status to potential partners. It was two years later that the concept gained traction in Australia. These anxieties include rejection, physical and emotional attack and our personal health information shared with others without our permission. Has it helped people living with HIV to find love, or an interlude of sexual pleasure?

How I Navigated Dating and Disclosure After My HIV Diagnosis

Grindr will no longer share HIV status of its users with third parties

Being long-term relationship oriented, I considered my HIV status as a blemish. Trying to navigate the dating waters once I was ready, about six months post-diagnosis, was like trying to learn how to ride a bike all over again. In order to even entertain the idea of dating again, I had to do some soul searching and fall back in love with myself. It took some time and is still something that I struggle with. I do not blame my bouts of inadequacy on having HIV, but to years of contributing factors: manipulative relationships, both friendship and intimate relationships, which just caused continuous self-doubt and questioning. To combat this, I sought the counsel of a licensed clinical social worker, as well as support from a close friend and a couple of close family members. Talking with these people allowed some insight, perspective, and healing as I tried to work through a time of dark thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
