So if you need to, take some time with Carrie Bradshaw and the girls and collect yourself.
But a man who is up front with his status should put you at ease. Be wary—he may just be the guy who convinces himself he is negative just because he doesn’t know whether he is positive.
Truth is, if he has had even one sexual encounter since his last test, he is a question mark.
In fact, the positive man must protect himself even more, to safeguard his health from pesky ancillary viruses.
For him, that means avoiding those question marks at all costs.
But the persuasion of romance, compounded by several months of exclusivity, can sometimes get the best of us. I was suckered into a bad gamble by sweet talk and pretty brown eyes once before.
