Dating with hiv website

Dating with HIV, seriously or casually, is hard — even though it doesn't have to be.
BALTIMORE — The Frederick County State's Attorney's Office in Maryland indicted a man who knowingly transmitted HIV to several women he met on dating sites.
According to officials, the Frederick County Police Department started an investigation in 2017 on 34-year-old Rudolph Jericho Smith after different women told authorities that they believed Smith had infected them with HIV.
“I thought it would last six months or a year.” His community has lead to others, such as Positive Singles (for people with HIV and herpes) and Hope (for people with herpes and other STIs) The sites’ interfaces resemble Tinder in all but one way: They also give users the option to reveal their particular diagnoses.
These services are only for people with STIs, which has provided a refuge for daters looking to avoid stigma.Matt never been a good match for me, really; my diagnosis just shined a spotlight on that.
