He has a good job. He is athletic and health oriented. He is the boy next door. He live right outside of one of the largest and gayest cities in the world or a small island like mine. He has awesome family and friends.
Oh, and he happens to have HIV.
Because of the latter, all the other traits he can bring to the table seem not to matter when it comes to dating. He has tried HIV dating Web sites and social events but has been unsuccessful. Since his status does not define him and he is not limiting himself to just HIV+ guys and he is open to dating anyone who fits into what he is looking for in a man, when HIV isn't a death sentence anymore...
My question is how does such a man deal with HIV stigma and dating without giving up hope?
