Great site,,, Washington DC guy here
« on: August 16, 2007, 11:54:41 PM »
Started posting last week but never introduced myself. I'm gay male. I  live in Washington DC area. Im poz. I take meds but havent had any side effects yet. Viral load is undetectable. I work full-time, exercise as much as possible but also love a bottle of beer or glass of wine :-). Love to travel too. Really grateful for this site. Nice to see people from all over the world on here. I don't feel so alone now.

It would also be nice to meet some friends male and female in the Washington DC metro area. Maybe a few of us can get together and go cycling, play cards, movies, swimming, museums travel etc.

DC.... we,, Arlington... here, too.  If you're looking to meet a wide range of Gay male HIVers, tomorrow evening Saturday 8/18 there will be a joint social near Crystal City, I believe, of the "DC Young Poz Socials" group and the "HOPE Foundation" socials group.

Hey DC Guy,

I thought I had already posted here, but I guess I didn't.

Welcome to the forums, I'm glad you joined in. I hope to hear more from you and get to know you better.

HUGS,

Guys sorry, just read my previous message which made no sense. I tried to go back and correct the message and ended up starting a new one that I couldn't erase. Talk about embarrassing.  I promise Im not on drugs or totally stupid  :)  This is what I get for trying to post here and work at the same time. Anyway thanks again. Hope to meet some of you in person one day  8)
