For people with HIV, dating can be intimidating and fear of rejection might keep you from disclosing your status to dates.
Experts at AIDSInfo recommend that you remember every situation is different and you don’t have to tell everybody.
Everyone in the dating world is afraid of rejection, whether it’s because we have baggage (kids, exes, trauma), we don’t fit social expectations (of age, size, appearance, cultural background), we’re awkward at socializing (nerdy, shy, introverted), or have one of the myriad of other characteristics that make us unique.
Women get judged for what they look like from the moment they’re aware of the world, so insecurity can often be our fallback position, with or without a chronic medical condition.
