    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Oprah has a show on today regarding this topic, with beautiful young women that have been tested positive for HIV AIDS. They are talking about dating men. They said that some men don't care if they have HIV AIDS, due to the fact that it's believed that it is not as easy for women to transmit to men. Some said that the men even want to have unprotected sex with them.

    Would you be willing to date, and love someone, who is HIV AIDS positive?

    :heart:

    See, that's why I use a condom EACH and EVERY time; even with my s/o. A few fleeting moments are NOT worth my life. I have a daughter to live for who really needs my special care! I am in shock that HIV negative men are willing to have unprotected sex with HIV positive women! Is the sex supposed to be better with a sick person? I am HIV negative, and in superb health, so, no way in the world would I date or become intimate with some one who is HIV/AIDS positive. Sexual intimacy is a huge part of a relationship. I value my health. HIV positive people need to pair up with others of like health.

    Peace

    Just today in an Essence magazine, I read about a man who had been exposed to HIV early in life. During a childhood accident, 40% of his body had been scalded with hot water. As a result, he received a blood transfusion that left him HIV positive. In the article he spoke of receiving mixed reactions from women about his health. He said a few women were sympathetic when they realized that his illness was not the result of him being promiscuous or irresponsible. Though these women were initially willing to date him, problems always arised and the relationships never lasted.

    I actually had an ex-boyfriend who always tried to get back with me always, and I always denied him and told him no because he slept with everyone and I do mean everyone. Well he contacted AIDS from a chic he was engaged too for two years. The sad thing about it is she did not even tell him, because he always cheated on her I guess she was paying him back, anyway he found out through the health department tracking him down. Anyway his mom and myself had become really close over all the years, best friends and when we found out he was infected she actually asked me to marry her son, because she always thought of me as a daughter-in-law and she knew I would take care of him. She also said that I was the only woman he ever truly loved, well folks needless to say I just could not do it, I just could not. I loved this man once and I still loved him but as a brother now because we had been apart for so long. They used my house as a "safe haven" for about three days just trying to cope with the "news" and he and I had a long, long talk about everything and I told him that I would always love him but I cannot give him the life he wants and he can't give me the life I want. He moved to Florida and his mom and I are not friends, I have not heard anything else since before the hurricanes hit. I just pray they are doing ok

    Sweettee, love
