General Hospital spoilers – Who were Robin Scorpio and Stone Cates GH’s most romantic teen couple?
Robin and Stone were young, beautiful, and talented when they first met. There was a spark between them that no parent, disease or fate could extinguish. Even in death, they are still connected and each year the entire town of Port Charles remembers them both when the Nurses Ball is held to raise money and awareness for HIV/AIDS.
In 1993 the teens were introduced but it was not love at first sight. The following year they began to see each other in a different light and at that time the main dilemma was Mac Scorpio (John J. York), Robin’s uncle, and guardian.

In a most obvious manner, Robin was the good girl from the right side of the tracks while Stone was just the opposite. He was a rough and tumble teen and obviously more worldly in the ways of love than Robin.
When they slept together in 1995 Robin lost her virginity and over time they did not use protection. After a period of illness, Stone was diagnosed with HIV.
Eventually, Robin would be diagnosed as HIV positive.
