Getting a homosexual roommate, are things like AIDS/HIV something we should be concerned about or is it a false stereotype? Sharing shower/toilet/pool

You're fine

Human_immunodeficiency_virus
HIV is not transmitted in the shower, toilet, or pool. During the Bad Old Days when many people had high levels of the virus, family members did not infect each other except through intimate contact. Hopefully you two will build a friendship. Most gay guys are HIV-negative; if you're worried, he might tell you one way or the other.

I don't think it's a stereotype but i was just wondering why low income nations and cities have a higher hiv/aids rate?

Other factors

Unite_kilimanjaro_climb_400
In the heavily-affected regions of Africa, lack of circumcision (still debated), social problems leading to promiscuity, lack of condoms and endemic violence against women. In the USA underclass, despair leads to IV drug abuse which spreads HIV. Even in the poorest parts of the Muslim world and most of Latin America, HIV infection is uncommon. This is simplistic -- there's much more.

What are “stereotyped behaviors”?

Patterned Movements

Extremity-upper-hand
"Stereotyped Behaviors" typically refer to repetitive, patterned movements that are usually rhythmic in nature. These are most commonly associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders, but are sometimes seen in other disorders like Tardive Dyskinesia, Schizophrenia and Mental Retardation. Examples include head banging, rocking, hand-wringing or flapping, marching in place, etc.

How come guys associate vaginal size with penis size stereotypes?

Chauvanism

Penis
Usually because they lack self confidence. Many men think they have a perfect penis & thus it must be the woman's fault if sex is less than perfect. Others may worry about size of their penises for same reason.

I'm concerned about my heart, I'm 19yrs old, should I be?

Hard to say.

Cardiac
You should see a doctor who will ask about your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle, family history, then do a physical exam. That is the bare minimum needed to answer that question (and all that's needed for most 19 year olds).

Wotz d opinion about using creatine? m 23yrs old

Good choice

Anabolic_steroids
Not everyone agrees but from my reading, creatine seems a good idea for a guy who wants to build up his muscle mass to get bigger faster. It's much more likely to work than "natural vitamin supplements". It is legal & seems save & won't leave you grotesque like anabolic steroids. It won't get you ripped / lean & it's not clear whether the muscle will be as strong as the same mass built without.

You offer a question with no supportive symptoms or reasons, as such, no answer is realistic. Questions are not linked on the site, so if you want an answer you need to start over.Give a summary of the issues under concern and submit it to the open site.

How come I feel so distressed about getting older?

Not uncommon

Psychological_stress
We all develop concerns as we age and we are no longer able to do things we used to do. We are no longer as limber or strong, physical illnesses become more frequent. Sexual prowess may suffer, and things we took for granted like seeing, hearing, peeing, pooping,and remembering may seem cursed. You may feel you never reach your full potential, be able to afford everything you wanted, have concern. About partner and family. You may wonder if your bucket list will ever be complete. There, now don't you want to get into therapy to talk over some of these issues. Sometimes it's very important to be in therapy to have the support that we need when we are obsessing over things that we cannot change or struggling to find ways to Change the things that we perhaps can. Please get into therapy and best wishes to you. Remember you are definitely not alone in this process called aging and it is a normal process.
