Hey Bros! So I am going on a date with this guy, who I think is gorgeous and an amazing person. I can't wait for it all to workout and get to love him one day (hopelessly romantic here). I am very interested in him. And I know he is HIV positive (from an old dating profile of him I found, but not where we met). He does not know I know this information. And I am not HIV positive and I am on Prep.
I am perfectly fine with him being HIV positive, and I know this conversation will come up at some point. I am unsure if I should initiate the conversation so that he is not stressing over it. And I am not sure what to say to truly be supportive. I am a healthcare practitioner and I am afraid I am just going to sound like he is one of my patients (it is hard for us doctors to tune this doctor-vernacular out, but I am aware of it and try my best not to do it). I have never been in this situation and would love to hear from HIV positive guys or anyone that dates them on how to best manage this. My goal is for him to feel accepted and supported by me... I don't want to be too casual or too mushy about it ... Not sure what to do.. thanks in advance.
