I know this is not the best way to start of Sunday,
but what else are most of you going to do today? icon_rolleyes.gif

I've thought about posting this topic before and for sensitivity reasons,
I decided to wait, but now I feel that this can be a good subject.
Especially on this site for "us guys" to discuss, learn, and share.
As opposed to the dozens of "sucking, fucking or been fucked" threads.
And even the delusional "oh my relationship ended 6 years ago, should I rekindle it" are you serious?

Anyway...

I have been talking to several guys online (I never met them in person)
and they have revealed to me they are HIV + or have HPV.
It was a surprise to me because on their profiles, their status is either not indicated or it's the "opposite of the truth"
One person told me that he doesn't tell unless people ask (which I did ask)
With the other guys, I spoke with them either once or twice,
and we talked extensively about their sexual history, and THEN they "came out" about their status.
Or I questioned certain things that did not make sense and I "outed them"
In one case, we talked off/on over 2 weeks and he finally trusted me enough to tell me that he has HPV and recently had genital warts.

I'm not going to go into anymore details or which sites, names and where they live. That's not my purpose,everyone has to be responsible for their decisions and be careful, CAREFUL!

I will caution you guys out there...
I've seen these particular guys posting on several sites.
And they DO NOT TELL PEOPLE THEIR STATUS.

I always ask questions and get tested regularly.
I do not have casual encounters and I don't even want people hot listing me.

There's alot of things you don't know about people.
Most of the other guys I've talked to have been involved in things you REALLY do not want to know about.
And not just talking about STD, I meant drugs, fetish, bizarre, weird, illegal, etc.

So, I ask everything from A-Z UPFRONT.
Yes, I'm one of those people that will ask about it.
And if you don't want to answer, I don't have time to play guessing games.
I value my life.


Thank you.

(BTW if you have hot or buddy listed me please remove it, thanks)
