Dating someone hiv undetectable Skype sex chat lanka
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.
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.
But unfortunately, social stigma doesn’t always make this possible and some people basically run away when they hear you are living with HIV.
When I moved back to Turkey, I used a different app because the one I used in Europe is banned here.
I have been living with HIV for almost three years and I have been involved in the HIV response since I was diagnosed.I thought that I didn’t have anything to lose, so I updated my profile. Yes, now and then, someone would write to me without reading my profile, and when I mentioned my status in the chat, they would stop talking or react with hostility.But it didn’t bother me that much simply because advocating was a part of my daily life and I would try to explain to them what undetectable means.I choose to disclose because I don’t think that it is something that needs to be kept a secret.
But sometimes I don’t feel like having the same conversation again and again, and I don’t disclose. Related: All topics, CD4 and viral load, HIV transmission.
