Just because you are HIV positive, doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. You can still lead an active lifestyle and have a fulfilling love life. If you are ready to get back in the saddle, we have some tips for you.
The easiest way to meet new people is through HIV dating sites. You don’t have to go on endless blind dates or get set up by your friends. Just go online and find a person you like. Here are some guidelines which will help you have a successful dating experience.
Create a wish list
Do you know what you are looking for? Are you ready for a serious relationship, or do you just want a casual fling? Have a conversation with yourself and see what you are looking for. Think what qualities would you like your partner to have. Do they have to be educated, employed or funny? When you know exactly what you want, create an online profile. If you want to avoid that awkward conversation where you have to explain to your partner that you are positive, sign up for HIV positive dating sites. This way your cards will be on the table from the beginning.
Don’t sit around hoping that someone will send you a message or that the website will find you the love of your life. HIV dating community is big, so you have to take action and start reading other people’s bios. See if there are any people you like or find interesting. Keep your mind open and don’t choose people for their hair or eye color.
Don’t’ write essays
Fill all of the fields on the dating site and write about your interest, but don’t be too extensive. Try to keep everything short and sweet. If you write War and Peace on your dating profile, you could come off as too desperate. Include all the fact you consider relevant in your profile but be short and intriguing. When you are on HIV sites you don’t have to mention your condition. Instead focus on who you are and what you are looking for. Don’t reveal everything about yourself. Save something for the actual date.
Don’t try to be funny
Maybe you are hilarious in reality, but it is hard to be funny online. Something you consider hilarious may not be well received. Same goes for sarcasm. Maybe you think you sound sarcastic while others think you are just angry or mean.
When you are online dating, try to sound optimistic. Write about things that make you happy and excited. What are your interests, hobbies, what makes you get up in the morning with a smile on your face? People are drawn to positive individuals, so don’t be gloomy.
Consider dating sites your market, and you are a product you are trying to sell. OK, not literary, but take a step back and see who your audience is. You don’t have to lie or pretend that you are someone else, just accentuate those qualities others might find attractive and hide the less appealing ones.
