Say you like this man or women a lot and you wanted to get intimate with them. You take them back to your place and get them in the mood, but they stop you. You're confused as to why, and they hesitate. Finally they come out and say
"I have HIV."
You're shocked and don't know what to think. How would you react to this? Would you stay with them, or leave?

It's tough because the disease now is basically the most damaging to your reputation than it is to your health. Modern medicine basically makes it not that harmful at all. But HIV and AIDS have a stigma attached to it worse than any other and if the relationship doesn't work your chances of ever being able to get into another relationship being honest with your disease is slim to none.3

I have a Good friend who has been Living with Someone for Years, @RainbowFanGirl, with a guy who Has... HIV. She Suspected but never knew the not so sweet truth until One day, he had to have tests and she had sent him to her doctor and found out the Proof in the pudding.
He had acquired This when he was with an Ex wife, who died of Aids and cancer. She was a drug addict and had lived on the streets of New York and when they got back together as two birds of a feather, she gave this to him. In fact, the Girl before my 'Good friend' had died of Aids when She had lived with him First.
My friend freaked out a bit but got tested right away and found out with each and every test There after, that she doesn't have This. Living with him, sharing certain things and Not, for I have asked her and confronted her a million times over, how she does this and she says she loves him and will never desert him as long as she lives. She says they work as a team to overcome any steam.
I would Personally Not get myself Involved with an HIV man because it can be a Risk. However, people who fall in love or even find out on the spot, still have sex, work it out and live happily ever after.
Good luck. xx1
