First date bombshell: She's HIV positive. (self.OkCupid)

I posted this in /r/relationships, but since I met her online, I'll add here (unless that's against the reddit gods, if so, I humbly beg your forgiveness):
I'll keep it short. i met a great girl the other night. She's cute, athletic, educated (PhD) and we got along great. She eventually brought up the fact that dating has been tough on her for the last several years, and it's due to something she usually waits until subsequent dates to discuss. She felt comfortable telling me, so she did...she's HIV positive. I was floored! Of all the possible things she could've told me running through my head, that was not one of them.
She contracted it from a previous monogamous (or so she thought) relationship. I'm completely ignorant on the subject, so I asked a lot of questions. Her levels are extremely low and she's on medication (I'll have to do a lot more reading).
Any suggestions/advice/experience with this sort of thing?
TLDR: First date tells me she's HIV positive. What to do??
