Eric 2

I still remember that day. This handsome, young man came to me, and asked me if I wanted to have sex with him. He came close to me, and cuddle my head. Back then I was 18 years old, I did not know he was infected. He looked so cute and his appearance definitely fooled me. I was so stupid. How naïve to listen to an adorable stranger.

I hate myself! How could I have been so careless, and let him have oral and anal sex with me. He told me that he was not +. In fact, he told me that he was 19 years old. My first time having sex and BANG. I am infected with HIV! I should have used a condom. Why did I not? I did not have one with me, and he said, “do not worry; you will not get infected.” He treated me so kindly, and I thought I found someone who can take care of me. BUT! He lied and now I have no one.

I am a Chinese-American, and my parents will not happy when they find out that I am HIV +. I hope my story will teach people to avoid having sex with others based on their appearance.
