No matter your age, dating and finding a relationship isn’t easy.
The important point is that you don’t need anyone feeling sorry for you because of your diagnosis.
Don’t let that dissuade you from accepting other dates.

Revealing your HIV status, particularly during the early years of the AIDS epidemic was a fearful experience, not only because of the rejection, but also the concern that they might tell others.

Relationships work best if they are on equal footing. • In terms of finding the date, doing things you enjoy that involve other people, such as hiking, film series, book club, food or wine tasting etc., is a good way to meet someone who shares similar interests.
