Trying to find that special someone who understands and cares
      #269935 - 01/01/13 06:52 PM

I have had Hep-C for three and a half years now. I knew from the moment that my doctors made me aware of this, the chances of me ever meeting my soal mate or finding that special person in my life would be almost impossible. I'm 55, have a good job, but my life is so lonely because I cannot find that special person to share it with, all because I have Hep C. I'm looking to meet others in my situation not only to chat with and become possible friends, but to maybe be there to shed some light on there situation as well. Thanks for reading my post.

Awww don't give uphope my friend. Have you tried going to the Delphi Forums? They are a HepC website whereas this site is mostly about Hiv. I know this because I am Co-infected also . And you sound lik a terriffic guy . But don't limit yourself to just a woman that must have HepC . A dear couple that are good friends, he has hep and she doesn't. So you see it can be for you also. Why don't you go to the dating and reationship catagory here and say hello to the women here directly by pm then. You never know my froend , she may not have hep but hiv . Does that make a difference for you? I

Look up to the Heavens for the answers to Lifes questions .

I understand how you feel, Its hard enough to find a soul mate without a disease to throw into the mix of it all. I have worried most of my life only being 33 that I wont find my soul mate but I think when I found out I was HIV it made me realize I need to love and value myself more and though I may not be in a relationship there are many people in my life that I do love and value our friendships. Its not just about being in a relationship but finding someone you can relate to and enjoy your life with and become open and honest with. I will def pray that someone wonderful comes into your life.

There are plenty who accept. There are plenty who don't. If someone doesn't accept your status it's simply not a match.

Try to remember that generally the qualities of someone who accepts (intelligence, compassion, logic) are qualities you'd want in a partner. It's a challenge... but in a way it helps screen out people who aren't a good choice for you.

Don't limit yourself to one status or the other (good advice to any one).
