Love and Relationships, Positive Style

What's your advice to HIV-positive people looking for love? What's your experience been?


Frankie Ninja and Anthony Castro

Frankie Ninja With Partner Anthony Castro

San Francisco, Calif., Diagnosed in 2007 (Frankie) and 2000 (Anthony)

Frankie: People ask me about finding love and how I deal with it as far as being HIV positive. I didn't really know what love was until after I became HIV positive. I wasn't looking for a relationship. I was just trying to find myself. On a Web site, I met Anthony. If you've heard the saying, "If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck ..." -- I came to the conclusion that if it does walk and quack like a duck, then it must be love. So that's pretty much how we got together and it was really against all odds. Neither of us was really looking for love. And I certainly don't believe in online dating. But life has a way of twisting things on you.
