Are you uncomfortable when it comes to asking someone else their HIV status? If someone after a few dates discloses their HIV status would you continue dating them?
After watching an amazing video on Public Health Solutions’ website, I felt it was time to bring up a subject most of us would like to avoid when we are dating. It’s what I like to call “A Necessary Evil!”
I know how difficult it can be to discuss this sticky but important topic with partners you barely know. However, it’s a conversation that should happen no later than the third date. Unless having sex comes first. Still not convinced?
To get a taste of what could potentially happen watch “The Morning After.”
Note: Although the characters in the video are gay it can happen to any one of us.
I believe the video is thought provoking and a true reminder that communicating and honesty in the beginning of any relationship is the foundation and key to developing trust.
For ideas on how to spark the conversation check out our “Let’s Talk About Sex” post.
Date Smart… Date for Success!
