Question Would you date someone who is HIV positive?

Best friend just started to. Intrigued me, I wanna say I would, there is a slight mental block but I think I 95% would. It basically all comes down to education.

Re: Would you date someone who is HIV positive?

Yeah I would. I know too many people that have died of AIDS and that are HIV+ to be discriminating like that.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Re: Would you date someone who is HIV positive?

I dont consider myself capable of... I mean it would really hurt to get very close to her and not be able to have sex.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

It would of course depend on the circumstances... but, If I really liked the guy I would.

Re: Would you date someone who is HIV positive?

Never been in a situation like that, but I don't think I would. Maybe if I dated someone for a while and really liked her and then she told me she was positive it may be different though.

Maybe, I'm not sure. I would really have to like the girl.

You can still have sex, just use a condom.

Re: Would you date someone who is HIV positive?

I can't really say..I believe that when you fall in love with someone you can even overlook things like this.

But as it stands now, I don't think I will be able to. One of main perks for me of being in a relationship is not having to fear while having sex, sometimes even without a condom.

Sure, but not if they are close to death.

Re: Would you date someone who is HIV positive?

I voted yes. I don't exactly have the luxury of choice. I'm not the best-looking/outgoing guy. I prefer sex with condom anyway.

Isn't a condom like 90% safe? I mean if you have sex regularly one of those times...
