The world of HIV has changed with so many advances being made. We met online during the AOL chat room times. At that time I was all about quickies and not really looking for a long-term relationship. I also thought I would only be attractive to someone who was HIV positive themselves, denied by others. Yet that turned out to not be true which took some risk of disclosure, but that disclosure affirmed to me that not everyone has hesitations dating someone living with the virus.
We met online and preceded to have a long distance relationship for a couple of months before we were in love and then he moved to a different state to be with me. Rather than him finding a job here like I'd hoped, he decided to work for himself and then moved in with me. I believed we got to know each other at what I considered a "deeper level" except I did not realize how negative he really was. My bf is the academic nerd type, he majored in philosophy, is very aloof and usually lost in thought. This was something that attracted me to him initially, but when I realized that this also made him neglect me, dismiss what I said and cause to not address or remember the things that I stated as important to me, I started to dislike him. I don't think he really warned me or displayed this until we started living together. His negativity is rooted in an abusive childhood, isolation and being deeply misunderstood by most people.
