Did your outlook on dating change when you received a positive diagnosis?

In his article Finding My Worthiness, Finding Love, Nicholas shared, "When they told me I was positive, my heart sank. I believed in that moment, at only 22 years old, I would never again find love. I was doomed, I felt, to a life of stigma and shame, where no one would see me as sexy or beautiful, handsome or funny — they would see me as Poz."

  1. Alafia (Peace) , After I received my diagnosis I didn't think I would ever date again. Mind you this was it 1991 and things were very different. Khafre (Team Member)

    1. I have too felt this, and think it’s pretty common. It was a huge deal for me to tell the last person I dated. -Ze (Team Member)

  2. I think Nicholas and I shared a similar moment. It truly is hard to date while being positive but most people I have told are super supportive and nice. -Ze (Team Member)
