Or they message her things like “PUT ON SOME CLOTHES, YOU HOMELESS HEATHEN” or “CAT STEVENS CAN SUCK IT, YOU HIPPIE.” You may want to try a similar strategy.• There are people that look for partners with health issues so they can be in a relationship where they “can take care of you.” I could do a post just on this type of individual.The important point is that you don’t need anyone feeling sorry for you because of your diagnosis.Don’t let that dissuade you from accepting other dates.My sister uses Ok Cupid so that men know she’s a 5’2 nudist with a penchant for folk songs.No matter your age, dating and finding a relationship isn’t easy.
