There's a guy at my school who contracted HIV from his girlfriend after having unprotected sex. He broke up with her sortly after. Would you date someone with this virus?

I hate to say it but no, I don't think I could.
1) HIV is a very serious disease. I don't know if I could be with someone who would inevitably be sick and have to worry about the emotional attachment to someone who could very possibly die from this disease.
2) I wouldn't want to risk contracting the virus myself. Even if the person is taking antiretrovirals and protection is used, I would still be very uncomfortable. Even coming into contact with the blood of an infected person can cause the virus to spread to someone else if that person has a tiny cut themselves. I just feel like it would be too risky.3
