One Day at a Time

So I find myself in a Groundhog's Day sort of pattern with my love life. And by love life I mean just that, actual love (not to be confused with sleeping around, which I don't do). Anyway, I meet someone, go out a few times, and then...drumroll...I tell them The News. Then I get some version of "it's not you, it's me" or some such speech, at which point they say they "still want to be friends".

Alas, is there a means to meet someone while poz? So far I have yet to do so. Just as in my relationships while negative, it seems as though the same hurdles plus one additional hurdle keep me from finding love.

I find myself being more of a hermit in the almost 3 years since I was diagnosed. I think I am getting afraid of the inevitable rejection that comes from dating while poz. Even if the potential relationship doesn't work out for other reasons, I can't help but to wonder if it would have worked out, if not only for the HIV? Wow, that was a really long sentence haha.

Any advice, input, etc would be great guys!
