Love and Relationships, Positive Style

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

I think people who are living with HIV are just as entitled to fall in love and have Valentine's Day and wonderful lives. I think it's important that they be honest and upfront with the people they have relationships with and that they take the proper precautions. If you take the proper precautions, I think you're going to have a full love life and sex life. If you don't, then I don't think that's a good way to enter into a relationship.
