Breaking Barriers: Living and Dating with HIV get easier with the Internet

It isn’t easy to find someone to date at the best of times; throw being HIV positive into the mix and it gets a whole lot more difficult. Even just getting through life gets a whole lot more complicated, but fortunately there are many helpful HIV support sites, and people, out there that can help you. Obviously the easiest way to get out there on the dating scene is to find a dating site specially dedicated to those who are HIV positive, but that isn’t the only option available to you.


Dating sites are a good place to start though, and there are many to choose from. PositiveSingles.com and HIVGay.com, as well as PozMatch.com and PozPersonals.com, are just some of the options out there. Most of these are free to join, but require a premium fee if you want to really unlock all the features; just browsing through your search results will give you a good idea as to which site would be best for you. On the whole, though, these sites make HIV gay dating significantly easier; your status becomes less of a potential obstacle here, with everyone already being on the same page. Then again, you could also pursue dating scenes not targeted specifically for HIV positive dating. There are negative men out there who would be willing to date you, irrespective of status.


On the subject of HIV support sites, there are just as many out there as there are sites for HIV gay dating, and a quick web search will yield literally thousands upon thousands of results. They vary in layout and intent from forums to Facebook pages, groups and community websites, and give you the opportunity to connect with other people going through the same things you are and ask questions, get advice or even offer support of your own to others. Some HIV support sites offer live chat to help you get in touch with people who can help you and put you in touch with people who can offer counselling, treatment and other types of support.


Being HIV positive, especially in terms of dating, is no longer as difficult as it used to be. The internet means that there are a great deal of HIV gay dating sites and HIV support sites, which can help make dealing with what is undoubtedly a challenge significantly easier. The sites for gay dating among HIV positive men can take the anxiety out of dating, and the support sites can offer you help in many ways.
