Dating with RA

I went on a date last night with a new man I met on the internet. We had a lovelly meal and drinks and talked none stop for about 4 hours. The only subject we didnt touch on was RA I didnt want to spoil the evening and make him think oh my god what kind of condition is that. He was a perfect gentleman (very rare these days) he even gave me a gorgeous box of continental chocs beautifully wrapped. It was great to be out feeling normal doing normal things. Hope I see him again but if I dont i will still have a lovelly evening to look back on.

  • Thank you Cece.

  • Think its really brave and positive of you to go for it like that ! You are bound to reep the rewards if you keep on trying. What do they say :

    You can`t score if you dont take a shot ! Didnt mean it as a Pun more philosphically, but you never know!!!!!

  • Hope your next date goes well for you. I dont think it's necessary to discuss the RA unless it comes up in conversation naturally. (RA is not catching as far as I am aware) and remember if it does come up in conversation and he finds it a problem, he's not the man you think he is. Most people have had contact with someone in their lives who has suffered from arthritis in one way or another. So just go enjoy your date and have some fun! xxxx

  • Thanks Judi he is supposed to be ringing me but hasnt done yet. He has been busy working though so I will forgive him. Lol
