Dating sites for people with rheumatoid arthritis
“I myself and many other people on the spectrum are uncomfortable with physical affection.
Most other dating sites do not include a question about this, but it can be very important.” Turns out, Spectrum Singles isn't the specialized dating site.
Dating can be an intense experience under the best of circumstances.
If you have physical limitations from a medical condition, such as arthritis, you may be apprehensive about the dating process, but relationships and dating are part of life.
I recently participated in an online talk show with Deborah Norville (whose mother had RA) for a website called newway RA ( to discuss just this topic.
"And lets face it, depending on what [the illness] is, it could very well make you uncompetitive in the larger dating pool." Fortunately, there are a number of alternatives.
A new breed of dating site has emerged to play cupid for people with chronic diseases and disabilities.
But many wonder, when do you tell someone you have RA that you have begun dating?
How do you negotiate feeling tired with your partner whether it’s about doing stuff at home, fun things out, or having sex?
