Married Guy in NYC infected by guy when condom ...
      #199813 - 07/12/06 11:12 PM

So I was infected by a guy named B_____ who swore he was neg, and then the condom broke. I came across another guy who had the same experience with
B_____ in NYC... he swore he was neg, and then the condom broke. So I'm wondering if anybody else got this way because of him?

:(

So you're sure you were neg before sex with him.

The chances of two guys infected from a single encouter from the same guy can happen,.He might have been in the early stages when his HIV levels are really high and he was very infectious but didn't know yet himself.

Now you gotta tell the wife. Good luck

Seems like a lot of defective condoms in NYC.

I'm sorry to hear about what you're going through. Unfortunately, I know about having to deal with this sort of thing.

Frankly, there is little you can do about "B" so I would not invest a lot of time or energy in thinking about that part. It will drive you crazy.

Best of luck to you!

I dunno, but seems like too much of a coincidence to me. Could B____ be purposely infecting others? Have you spoken to him after your pos result?

Well Bear, I guess I still live in a heterosexual world and think there's a "wife" when a heading says "Married Guy in NYC." Hope you agree that if I made a mistake, it was an honest one. :)

You know what Gary.....you are exactly right. In my world it is not a given that someone has a wife...when they say they are married. But you are correct....I should have seen that its probably a heterosexual "marriage". Oh well, we cant win them all.

hey Bear, the older i get the more i realize that it's not about winning or loosing....it's more about playing fair and enjoying the game.

however, since you implied that I WON, you can give me my prize (one Big Bear Hug) when we meet face-to-face. :)

i appreciate you man!

And, I was infected by a guy named J______ who swore he was negative, we had risky, unprotected sex numerous times, and I got infected. At times I'd like to kill him, or tell the world that he is positive, but what's the point?

And, by the way, I am a married, heterosexual female who had one affair. Honestly, first and only affair. Been with my husband over 13 years - and he is negative.

Speaking for my self ONLY....... I am glad I dont know "who infected me". I tend to obcess a bit and probably would have to recontruct the entire relationship to see how I could have changed things but didnt. Once I was HIV positive I tried not to talk about HOW I became infected. There is nothing to be gained personally from it. It will not change the past, it will not make me feel better to know, it will not make people love me if I could prove it was from a tainted cheesburger (LOL).
