@Cort I believe I have inadvertently discovered the perfect formula - no dating site necessary[fright]View attachment 1322 [/fright]
Dating is, of course, is very problematic with ME/CFS/FM. Finding a partner who understands and accepts one's needs to pull back at times - to not go out - and not be upset by that or judgmental is obviously tough. (Throw MCS into the mix and you have a real challenge!)
It takes a special person to partner up with a person with special needs.
But what about someone else with ME/CFS and/or FM - somebody who understands? That might be really something but finding someone like that is hard without something like a dating/meetup site.
There's also just getting to know people in your area who have similar afflictions; people you could meet with at a coffee shop or at their home and talk things over. That close contact is mostly lost in the internet age.
If a dating / meet up program was made available would you use it?
I didn't realize it when I married him, but my husband is a completely introverted gamer. I knew about the gamer part. Turns out - he's THRILLED he no longer has to leave the house - hahaha. Because he's such a warm guy and not at all socially awkward, I didn't realize he was so introverted. Now, I feel so fortunate to not worry about "holding him back". Also, he's a total geek. Geeks are underrated.
So there you have it - simply find yourself an introverted geek. Where can you find such a guy/girl? Match.com. (You're welcome!)
