Hey babe, here’s the deal. I am a fellow spoonie and I have had my fair share of dates (related: dating a doctor). Sometimes, I’m not proud of that. Other times, I think it serves a higher purpose. At the very least, now that I’m engaged, I can take an educated guess at what men want. Really want. Other than sex. Although, in my experience, they always want that too. So go through this list, discover what men want for yourself, and if you still are stuck… sex.
Now hear me out, before you read this list…keep an open mind.
Don’t confuse sparks with happily ever after, there are telltale signs you should break up with your partner
Relationships are complicated. One day, you’re single and finally embracing who you are and what your life journey is. The next, you meet someone or if you’re like me (swiped right) and there’s a spark. There are no signs you should break up. They have no character flaws. And you feel yourself falling in love. They are attractive, you can tell them anything, they make you laugh, they don’t care about your chronic illness, they may even want to visit you in the hospital.
Ghosting, according to the Urban dictionary, for those of you who haven’t been through it is when someone you believe likes you or cares about you, stops all contact without any warning or explanation. They just disappear.
First of all, why’d I even buy a planner? So many lessons learned during quarantine. Everything is chaotic and we’re all searching for a little bit of balance. Here’s the irony, I never expected COVID or the quarantine to teach me anything about life. Especially about finding balance. And yet, once again, I was wrong. There’s always a higher purpose to pain. There’s always a bright sunrise after the darkest of nights.
Hey sis, I know how hard it is. You put yourself out there, gave a piece of your heart to a stranger that became a lover, fantasized about happily ever after, and then found out that he wasn’t quite what you expected.
A cystic fibrosis diagnosis can be incredibly hard. It’s also a disease with a lot of hope. However, this blog was created for neither of those purposes. This blog was created to empower the women with terminal diseases, rare disease, chronic illnesses, and any other spoonie category learn personal growth and relationship tips. Dating with cystic fibrosis, or any other health condition isn’t talked about much.
And we’re going to change that. This is my heart poured out behind the keys of a computer. I share the shameful and encouraging tales of what it is like to date with a terminal illness. This is my story of self-sabotage, one night stands, too many drinks, and hating my reflection. For awhile, I thought I was a burden to the world.
