Many individuals who are HIV positive try to find love on HIV dating sites. If you are one of them, this article is for you. If you think that writing down a couple of sentences in your bio will do the trick, think again. There are some rules when it comes to online dating. Before you start this virtual matchmaking, read these tips and become a pro in HIV positive dating.
Only use current photos
Keep in mind that the only point of online dating is find a person to go out with in real life. So, when you finally meet face to face they will see how you look like, so there is no need to pretend that you are younger or thinner than you really are. Don’t misrepresent yourself in your photos by using old ones. Also, don’t crop them in too tightly so the other users can’t see what your body type is. They won’t mind the fact that you are older, fatter or skinnier than in your photos, but the fact that you have lied to them. Any relationship based on lies is doomed from the beginning.
Filling out the profile
HIV dating community is large, so you need to stand out from the crowd. You can do that by filling out your online profile. Yes, it can be annoying and boring, but it is necessary. People do not contact users with hardly anything in their profiles. Write about yourself, your interests and goals. Don’t lie about anything, you won’t be doing yourself a favor. Trust us, you don’t want your profile to be a novel, so keep it short and sweet. Provide just enough information to give users a clear picture of who you are.
If you know what you want-emphasize it
If you know specifically what you want or maybe you have some deal breakers, put them on the top of your profile. Let other users know that you are looking for a relationship, that you hate smokers, that you want at least three kids or that you don’t want to date anyone who doesn’t live in your area. Stuff like that. This way even if a user does not read your full bio, they will know what to expect.
