Lonely. Took a chance and hurt once again. Need help!
« on: August 17, 2023, 01:04:17 pm »
Hi everyone. I've been hiv + for 23 years. My partner infected me and as soon as he got his diagnosis he never touched me again, with no explanation. So we've lived like that for all these years. It took me a long time to get used to no love and affection, until a few weeks ago. I met this guy from the hood and we were attracted to each other. I told him about my hiv but he wanted to hook up anyway. So we did. To make a long story short, it was good for me but not so much for him. That would have been ok, not many guys would have even touched me. But instead of telling me, he just stopped seeing me but kept texting, hoping I would get the hint and disappear. Yesterday I bumped into him and let him have it. Why do people lie so much??? He said he was sorry and shrugged his shoulders. I ask again... Why can't people tell the truth??? 😥😥 It hurts so much...

As Mod I'm just posting to say Hallo so you don't feel like we're ignoring you.

This section of the forums is very quiet as most of our forum members are men. Now it's your choice of course, but if want I can move this post to a more active section of the forums like "Living with HIV"?

Anyhow, sorry to hear that dating this guy didn't work out. Rejection happens, still sucks though, wishing you the best and hopefully, things work out better next time.

Best, Jim.
