When it comes to relationships, some HIV positive people have a clear cut policy on the sero status of potential partners. Some will only be with another HIV positive person, some will only be with an HIV negative partner and for some it’s not even a part of the ‘should I get involved with this person’ decision. Of the four relationships I’ve had since the person I became positive from, only one was HIV positive. I’m one of the ‘it has no bearing on my decision’ people.
Non-the-less, being HIV positive with an HIV negative partner does come with some challenges. But what relationship doesn’t? For me, the positive partner, it’s rare that my HIV status is an issue in our life together, though there have been a few times. For my husband, he’s been amazing and has had few concerns with me being positive right from the beginning.
