Why must you find a HIV positive partner? Many couples are discordant (one is positive and one is negative). Are you saying that HIV positive people should only date HIV positive people?

Remember even if you are HIV positive you must still have protected sex, as your partner can have a different HIV strain to you and you can get re-infected again, and hence get sicker quicker.
