Just because you are HIV positive, doesn’t mean it is the end of the world. Many people with this condition lead proactive lives. They have careers and families just like anybody else. If you are positive, there is no reason why you shouldn’t get back on that horse. If you think that your condition might be the problem, join dating sites that are created for HIV positive people. Here, you don’t have to explain your story and go through that awkward conversation where you tell your date about your condition. Here you can relax and focus on more important things, like finding a person who shares your interests and life goals. Millions of people have experienced the wonders of virtual matchmaking and you should join this club. If you are new to HIV dating online, here are some tips that should guide you through this process.
Make sure you have a great profile picture
A nice picture will draw attention of other users. Let’s make it clear, it must be your pic. If you upload a photo of a nice landscape, coffee or a bike for example, nobody will contact you. Profiles without a legit picture are considered fake. So upload your photo, some that captures your essence. If you like outdoors, post a picture from your camping trip, if you love to ride a bicycle, post a photo from one of your adventures. Find one where you look happy. People are drawn to optimistic individuals. Forget about using a photo from your ID or other personal document. Show people the real, fun you!
Fill out your bio
And by this we don’t mean you should write about your HIV positive status. Just because you are using HIV dating sites doesn’t mean you should focus on your condition. Write about things that make you you. Let other users know what you like, and what you dislike. Write about your taste in music, and which movies you can see over and over again. Talk about your interests and hobbies. Also, it doesn’t hurt to mention what you are looking for. Whether it is one night stand or a relationship, let others know. This way you won’t lead anyone on. If you are looking for an outgoing person, or maybe you prefer someone who would stay at home with you and watch a movie, write it down. This way you will speed up the process because the people who respond to your profile and message you will meet your criteria.
Never be afraid to message someone first. Keep in mind that you have nothing to lose. Don’t be afraid of rejection, fear will only slow you down. Read people’s profiles and if you find some HIV singles who seem interesting, immediately contact them. If it works out, great! If it doesn’t, at least you tried. Keep your head up and move on. If you take initiative you will quickly find a bunch of interesting people, and one of them might be the person you were waiting for.
