Dating with Fibro

Hi guys I'm just wondering if any of you have been dating after not having done it for a few years and if so, when do you mention our dreaded little friend and when you do mention it how do prospective boyfriends/girlfriends react?? Also, has anyone tried online dating? If so, which sites would you advise and how do you get that first date?? Thanks.

I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? Welcome to the forum and it is wonderful to make your acquaintance. I have pasted for you below a link to our mother site, FMA UK which hosts loads of useful Fibro information:

I have been married for the last 30 years so I have absolutely no experience of dating myself?

I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Good luck my friend x :)


Hello LADYALEXIA, I can't give you any dating advice but I think when you're asked tell me a little about yourself I would say I have fibromyalgia.i would not go in length about it just maybe a short version, unless there completely interested. They will probably Google it later. If they like you for who you are you'll know. Take care. Chris

Thanks Chris very kind of you to reply. I am heartened to see by only a couple of responses that long marriages are still the norm - my parents have been married themselves for 66 years this year!! I will soon try and put my toe in the water I think - still havent plucked up the courage to yet - hey ho if its meant to be it's meant to be!! X
