I was really excited to find this site, except I was never good at talking to more than one person. But I made myself get on here and actually look around and give people a chance that I wouldn't be able to find on my own. After a failed first try, and a few dates with a very nice guy that I just didn't click with, I received an e-mail from Jon. He lived all the way in Georgia and I'm in Oklahoma City, which proceeded to make me think of every reason there would be no point in meeting him. But after a discussion with a friend, I decided to at least meet up with him over the holidays, give it a shot though I was 100% doubtful we would connect and I would ever see him again.
The instant he walked into the restaurant on our first meeting, my negativeness was taken down a notch. I thought the conversation might be difficult since we never spoke previously through e-mails to get to know each other, unlike prior dates I had been on. But our ideas and likes/dislikes and laughter came within seconds. Later, he talked me into meeting his sister and her friend at Groovys. I mainly went quite apprehensively and only because there is a confetti cannon. But by the end of the night, my cheeks were hurting from laughing so much. I have never in my pre-hsv years dated a man willing to dance to Footloose in private, let alone public around me. I was amazed and I still am. He continues to prove my negative nature wrong and surprises me even from a few states away.
Accepting yourself is a must before talking to someone else about whatever you currently are living with. The person you are having this discussion with will often take cues on how bad it is from you. For example, if you act as though HIV is the worst thing in the world, they are more likely to believe it is the worst thing in the world. If you act as though it is not a big deal, the other person is more likely to ask questions, and rationally decide that you are still amazing and completely worth it. Impressionism matters.
