Dating a Positive Guy.
      02/13/13 02:25 AM

Hey there.
I have been seeing a guy for a couple weeks now. He just let me know that he is HIV+. The last thing I wanted to do was react negatively because I was so thankful that he was comfortable telling me. He informed me that he is taking his meds, and that he is currently "undetectable." He asked if I had any questions, but at the moment I didn't. Now that it's been a few days I think I have just come to the realization about how little I know about HIV/AIDS. I understand that condoms are the first thing people think of for prevention, but what other precautions should we take? What does it mean to be undetectable? What do the meds do? How does HIV turn to AIDS? I would ask him these questions, but we only get to see each other like once or twice a week and I'd prefer to not text about it. Also, I'd like to be able to show him I've done research on how we could make this work as a serodiscordant couple, and I'd like to talk to him about what I've found here. Any advice and answers to my questions would be great. Thanks!
