A woman has shared her remarkable story of how an HIV test turned into a heartwarming love story.
Writing on a popular website, Jae Jones said she was celebrating her 25th birthday in the Caribbean when she suddenly asked the man she was talking to if he would take an HIV test.
She added that the man agreed despite having met her just a week before and the fact that she meant the question to simply be a test.
Jae wrote that she had just broken up with her ex-boyfriend and was not really serious about starting a new relationship so soon.
She said: "I had no intention of 'keeping him around.' It was my birthday and I just didn’t want to be alone."
However, the two ended up spending more time than they had initially anticipated.
Jae wrote: "I walked out to meet my date with a smile on his face holding matching results. Food and a movie just seemed right after that. Then a conversational walk in the park."
