Be sure that the website guarantees complete privacy of your messages and photos.
Create a great profile
One of the most important tips for HIV positive dating is knowing how to create a good profile. Make sure that your profile illustrates your positive qualities, just don’t come off as too cocky. Think about what kind of person you would like to attract and base your description on that. Upload a profile picture because most of users wouldn’t even open a profile without a profile picture. Don’t use an old photo. If you hit it off with someone you will have to meet them in person, and they could feel like they have been tricked.
Make a good first impression
When it comes to HIV dating online, the first message is the first impression. It can be a positive one or it can be a deal breaker. Avoid copying and pasting messages because it can be a little obvious. Be careful and avoid spelling mistakes. The best ice breaker is mentioning mutual interests. Find something on their profile you both share and then talk about that.
Take it slow
You have all the time in the world. You don’t have to meet everyone you chat with in person. Only when you have exchanged a good amount of messages and got to know each other it is ok to meet offline. Don’t expect much and be prepared that the date can be a bad one. Just because you clicked online, maybe you won’t have anything to say to each other when you are sitting in a restaurant. Prepare yourself for an awkward situation, so if it goes well you will be pleasantly surprised. If not, you already expected it so there is no need to be discouraged.
