hiv
hey guys

i heard yesterday one of my good buddies is hiv+... really shocked... having difficulty dealing with it... what should i do?... he wants to stay with us for a while but my gf is refusing... i can't reject a friend... a dear old friend.

i'm also freaking out to some extend because i had a 2 month relationhsip about a year ago with a girl who's sexual history is a mystery to me. should i get tested?! never before has it been so true that you sleep with all your partner's partners!!

help...

Hi again Labyrinth and thanks for your post.

I'm not sure why your girlfriend is opposed to your friend coming to stay for a few days - is she opposed to other people staying over? - but she should know that you cannot contract HIV from social interaction.

Congrats on testing negative yourself, and hats off to you LoneWolf :)
