I’m still single and dating has become a nightmare overnight. I used to be comfortable disclosing to my “potentials”, but not anymore. I find myself swinging between “should I?” and “should I not?”. If I don’t, I feel like a liar, and if I do, I risk one more person knowing (and not knowing what they would do with the information is torture). I sometimes wonder whatever happened to the diva in me, since when do I care what people think of my status... oh I know, since I disclosed to “potential” and he had a panic attack and I had to give him CPR! Or maybe it’s since when I came to live home from university and my mom told me not to disgrace the family my telling my status to other people. But the question in my head still remains...when is the right time to tell? I know from experience that the longer you wait, the harder it is to tell. I am not perfect but I love myself with all my imperfections and hope to find a better way to disclose without needing approval and acceptance.
