The world of dating and relationships can already be complicated and tricky but when you add a condition like fibromyalgia to the equation it can really get confusing. When is the best time to tell a date or someone you like that you have fibromyalgia? Will it scare them off? Or will they say they understand and then run off when the going gets tough? What if the effects of fibromyalgia hurt them more than it does you? Given the seemingly low awareness of fibromyalgia, I always have to explain what it is to anyone I meet.
Dating is challenging in the best of circumstances. You have to try to blend your interests with another person and learn about all the little things that make them tick. But dating is even more challenging when you have a chronic illness like fibromyalgia.
