It is never easy to tell someone that you are positive. But it must be done. When I elected to enter a relationship, I disclosed on the second date. If the person loves you enough, he or she will stand by you no matter what. If you don't disclose soon, there might be more resentment. Just be honest.

I know its a difficult situation, but it begins with self acceptance and how you persieve the illness. Find out how he feels about other people that may be diagnosed. If this person is sensitive and intelligent and cares for you then that person should show concern not critisize. It's a true test of love and for your sake I hope that person passes with flying colors. Stay in touch and let me know how it goes

Just jump off that high board as soon as you can, get it over with, for yourself and your loved one. It's the only way, from my experience. They have a right to know relatively soon if they can and want to be with someone with HIV, and you have the right to move on sooner if they can't, the love will grow deeper and if they are going to break your heart, it will break even harder. It is almost as awful as getting the HIV diagnosis (although I am in 2nd long term relationship and dated some, it was easier after telling the first person). Good luck.....
