Dating sites people epilepsy
They may have little or no knowledge about epilepsy, and fear of the unknown is great.
But they can be educated by someone who has the disorder. People are attracted to others because of physical features and personality.
It underlies much of the anxiety and discomfort associated with dating.
Someone with epilepsy has the added fear that he or she will be rejected because of the epilepsy. Some people who hear the word "epilepsy" become frightened.
For a better discussion, talk about it in person rather than over the phone, through text messages etc.
Anyone you speak to, would tell you their fears of possible rejection in regards to asking someone out on a date.
In fact, experts say that specialty dating websites eliminate the #1 worry of singletons with health issues: Figuring out when – and how - and even – they should “come clean” with a potential boyfriend or girlfriend, and whether telling the truth about their health will lead to rejection.
Because with these sites, all the issues are on the table from the start, there are no secrets, and no fear about future revelations.
If the discussion is open and honest, friends will be more willing to ask questions and share their feelings. In general, it is wise to wait a bit before talking about epilepsy with new friends.
Ricky Durham founded the dating website Prescription 4 Love for people with all kinds of health and personal issues.
He was inspired by his brother Keith, who had Crohn’s disease.
But no one's ever expressed a worry about it and because I think they rely on me for information they go, 'Are you feeling okay' and they rely on me to tell them if I'm not feeling okay.
I don't have issues so it's kind of a one way information flow in that I tell them about it, what I'm feeling, what to look out for and that kind of thing, and I hear their worries but, mainly if I don't tell them that it's an issue they're not going to assume it is an issue.
