ASGCville saidI met someone and we are hitting it off, we havn't had sex yet and we have been dating for almost 2 weeks. We talked about past relastionships and likes and dislikes, we have alot in common, I was tested for HIV and my results are negative, how do I bring up the subject about his status?
chat, chat chat... "Oh, I just got the results back on my last HIV test, and I wanted to let you know I'm negative."
Either he replies with his own status, or his silence means he hasn't been tested recently, or at all, or else he's poz. But poz can be safe if you know what you're doing, and practice safe sex.
Safe sex means assuming EVERY guy is poz, cause even they may not know their own status. And since testing results lag between 3 to 6 months following infection, unless he's had the newer, more expensive test with quicker results, consider an unknown guy to ALWAYS be poz. He may answer he's neg, too, but be wrong.
In other words, his answer of negative is meaningless. And so, for that matter, may be yours.
Does that help?
