HIV: should you out him?

If you're HIV-positive, or think you might be, of course you tell a new partner. But is he telling you?

“I'm the 26-year-old mother of a 6-year old girl. I am attractive, full of life and have a great career. “ writes a Health24 reader, whose nick is "Concerned", on the HIV Peer Support Forum.

I was afraid that I had infected him.
“K came to see me that evening. I was terrified, but I had to tell him the truth, and I suggested that he get tested as well, because I would feel so bad if I had infected him. He said that he would be fine, that it’s like any other illness, and that I shouldn’t worry as he was not going anywhere.
