Chronic disease dating site

If men who are total assholes about nudism and folk songs see her profile proclaiming this both so boldly and so clearly: Why is it good to break the news online or even over the phone?

You have to be understanding of people when it comes to your chronic disease. Give them a minute or two to process. And let them have the ability to untangle this information before you sit down to your first date. People are going to follow your lead when it comes to the state of your disease. People can sense your uneasiness about your disease.

The details of your sensitive stomach. The current color of your snot. Save it for the honeymoon, kids. You need someone who is going to be there for you ALL the time.

You need someone reliable. You need someone understanding. You need, you need, you need—but slamming your fist down on the table every time you decree a new amendment on how you will be treated as a partner is not going to win you any suitors. So take a step back. Partners of those with chronic illnesses are probably the closest things to super heroes. There are millions of things you can do for your partner—from helping them have better relationships with their family and friends, to teaching them about having career goals or handling money and investing, to being a solid parenting partner or emotional caregiver.

Extreme roller coaster riding? Hot dog eating contests? These might not be the best first date activities for you if you have a chronic illness. You will probably fuck yourself up, big time. You will probably end the night in excruciating pain.

You will probably end up puking in the back seat of his car. No good will come of this. Better to out yourself and your condition early and avoid the consequences. Laugh About It Because really—it is kind of funny. I mean whoever heard of someone sneaking in a stash of immodium in their bra to the prom?

Relationships require all kinds of bravery. From braving that first kiss to braving the first argument. And better to be happy, searching for the right one—than miserable and feeling worse about yourself with the wrong one. Will you spend three hours on your hair then realize you need a nap? Is the world going to end? On the forum the other day, someone asked: You are a person, and you happen to also be chronically ill.

You are so much more than an illness, and when you stop thinking of yourself in that box—others will too. Not by a long shot. Please share it with your sick and single friends!
