I think iot is best to be upfront with ppl this is not a DD that you have shame about or control over and
I would think you are on meds right??

I would really have to think if I would tell the person on the first date or wait and see if you are asked back out
This is a question that really has no right or wrong answer in my opinion anyways

I believe you have to follow your heart and guts to what you are going to do

I wish you all the best however and plz do let us know how it went

Hey there,

A date, how wonderful.  I agree with Lyn, it is best to be upfront;  your on meds so you are like all the other people with a disease that take meds whether it be a mental health disorder, endocrine disorder, respiratory disodrer ETC.

I don't know that I would tell this person on the first date as it is not necessary to share your whole medical history but when you feel comfortable I would tell him toward the beginning of a relationship that may continue on.

He is luciy to have met someone as lovly as you and I hope you have a nice time. Just be yourself and know you are a good person which he is lucky to have met. :)

Enjoy

Hugs
Kitt

Caren,

I agree. You'll certainly tell him, but it's not necessary to do so on the first date - or even the second or third. There's always a time in the start of a relationship when both people share about their past, and that's when you can bring it up.

I hope you have a wonderful time!
