Haven't posted in quite a while here, mostly because I haven't made H a big part of my life. Back when I was feeling down about it, though, I remember reading these stories and hoping it could be me one day. Well, I am happy to say I am now a success story!
I've been dating someone for a few weeks, but it seems like it's been a lot longer! We've spent a lot of time together, so things have progressed pretty quickly. After sleeping over a few nights (and just sleeping over), things heated up rather quickly. I had every intention of bringing up the STD discussion before anything happened, but it didn't quite go down that way. We had sex. Before the dreaded conversation. I could've easily done what I've done in the past...kept it from the guy I was with and swallowed my guilt. He's different, though. There's just something about him. I knew I needed to be honest with him.
So, I finally brought the conversation up. We talked about how we both are frequently tested. Then I brought up the GHSV 1. You know what his reaction was? "Well, I don't care. It's not your fault. I'm crazy about you. I'd probably still be with you if you had HIV." Tears in my eyes...such relief! He could've easily dropped me after not being upfront with him from the beginning, but he didn't. Just goes to show you there are men (and women) out there that'll like you for you. Just thought I'd share!
