In wake of celebrity Charlie Sheen’s recent admission about being HIV+, PositiveSingles.com, the largest anonymous HIV dating site, invites Charlie Sheen to join its website community and would be pleased to offer him a lifetime membership if he accepts.
On Nov. 17, 2015, the 50-year-old Hollywood actor and the son of famous actor Martin Sheen, revealed that he is HIV positive during an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show. However, “Charlie does not have AIDS,” said Sheen’s physician, Dr. Robert Huizenga, an associate professor of clinical medicine at the University of California in Los Angeles.
Sheen first found out about his HIV status “about four years ago” according to the Today Show interview. Sheen also revealed that he takes four pills every day. He confessed to the media that he has paid many who threatened to expose his HIV status. Sheen indicated that he became quite depressed because his doctor was so concerned about his condition. Now, he has decided to face the reality of his medical condition and dispel the stigma of HIV by going public with his diagnosis.
“People may feel shameful, frustrated and lonely after being diagnosed with an STD. Sheen, as a famous Hollywood celebrity, must be going through an even harder time than ever that we cannot imagine.” said PositiveSingles.com consultant, Richard Cordova (Richard has been living with HIV since 2002). “PositiveSingles is a completely anonymous website supporting such a group of people so they can move forward, be positive, find hope and feel good about themselves again. Like all others who are HIV positive, Sheen needs to talk with those in the same boat who understand what he is going through but know nothing about his personal information. That would be very helpful for him. So we invite him to join our website and offer him a lifetime membership. This is what we always tell those having an STD ‘YOU ARE NOT ALONE’.”
As a famous celebrity and also a millionaire, Charlie is not new to online dating. In 2008, it was reported by Forbes.com that he was on the prestigious millionaire dating site MillionaireMatch.com and was quite active on there for a few months. If he was ever going to join a dating site again, the STD dating sites would be his best option given his current condition.
