cacique2908 Posted July 23, 2008 Share Posted July 23, 2008 I'm not really asking for advice, just more input. Has anyone out there dated or been intimately involved with someone with HIV. My recent ex, whom I love dearly, just pushed me out of his life. We have dated on and off for about a year and a half, it has never been a smooth ride. He is also a hemophiliac and contracted the virus at age 4 through a blood transfusion, and has been living with it for 30 years. I can see allot of his pains and problems stem from the years of medications and also the hemophilia takes it's toll. He is much too complicated a person to even imagine making a relationship work with, but I have tried over and over to love him. Has anyone been in a similar situation? I'm not looking to reconcile with him, just be his friend. I realize his issues outweigh anything a normal relationship can fix..but I have tried. I think I'm just grappling with the idea that I failed at loving him... He could never really open up to me, he finds it hard to love someone, he is scared to love someone...I could write all day.. anyway, just looking to see if anyone is or was in the same boat.
