Hello everyone. Im 41 years old living in center city Phildelphia. As im getting older im getting lonely. I'd love to meet some other positive guys in the Philadelphia area. I literally have guys talk to me for 5-10 minutes then when they find out im on disabilty abruptly end the conversation by walking away. I am terrified of being old poor and alone. When I first tested positive I wanted to survive. Now I don"t know what im going to do with the rest of my life.

Hey Philly,  I lived in Philadelphia most for 30 yrs and first tested HIV positive in 1987. I moved to Georgia just a year ago. When I was still in Philadelphia Mazzoni Center had some support group meetings for long term survivors on a weekday afternoon. There was also a chapter of SIN Philadelphia (a Yahoo Group) who had outings, and t-dances. I know my info is a year old but I'll bet there are similar things going on. If you like please email me.

Good Luck!

I live in Philly, centrally located. If you want to meet up for coffee/dinner or what not send me a message. There is also a long-term survivor group that has been meeting at Philly Fight since 2005 -- small group of 8-10 of us so you won't feel overwelmed.

But like Habersham stated there are also other options -- Mazzoni and SIN. Not sure why you're have a hard time meeting others your age or roundabouts. If you're still doing the "bar thing" then that's probably the issue.

I was at the Mazzoni center today! I heard of SIN but didn't know the met at Mazzoni. Things are on hold in my life right now. Both ofmy elderly parents are having serious health problems. If they progress I can get back to my ife in a month or so. Thanks for the advice.
