I am a single father of two really great kids. I have also been recently diagnosed with epilepsy that has thrown quite a screw in my life!?! I find now bein a single father and havin a medical issue seems to scare the hell out of women and unfortunatley when i let them know i have epilepsy ( in case i drop ) they seem even more likely to run.... is it just total lack of understanding??? im kinda lost lol. I kinda have to start life from scratch but i keep smilin is there similiar issues out there??? im not looking for sympathy just some understanding to see if others are havin medical problems messin with meeting people??

I wouldn't mention you have a condition unless you got a little serious with dating. I'd take a break anyhow and make sure you're stable with your medication and parenting before bringing dating into the mix.

You need to stop looking for reasons that women don't stick around. Step back and take a good look at yourself. That is the only constant factor in this whole mess.

I have people asking why i tell them so soon???? my answer for that is simple. im not ashamed of it and i would rather them know and be informed before i hit the ground and scare the hell out of them lol I tell people when im over at there house to so if i fall they dont phone an ambulance right away cause i have not needed one so far and whether i use it or not i have to pay for it lol. could get hard on the wallet lol. As far as blaming my medical condition it comes back around to the not understanding the impact it causes and i dont want people to feel sorry for me at all! I lost my job, drivers license , had to move in with family. Its hard to explain to a person your dating why you have a car but you pick them up on a bike lol or why i cant work at the moment lol all really attractive features lol
