Relationships

Any advice/tips on dating with P? I am recently divorced after 15 yrs of marriage and have started dating again. I have always been comfortable in my own skin but am somewhat nervous when I think about being intimate with someone new. Thanks.

Good question. I stayed single a lot when I was in my 20s and 30s, but I had a lot of other thing contributing to that. I am now with a woman that I met almost 11 years ago. My psoriasis has been better and worse, under treatment and not under treatment during that time. This woman has always seen me for me, as I do with her. We get along very well and my psoriasis has never been an issue. Have fun with your pursuits, and know that a REAL find will not care about your skin.

Hi Brian. I'm new to dating after being with my ex for about 35 years. I personally don't have the patches anymore but I do have scarring from all the steroid use. I'm 56 and honestly, I quite like the dating thing. New and out of my comfort zone. You will attract the right person if you are already comfortable in your own skin. Bring it up casually, answer questions, then let the chips fall where they may. Good luck and blessings to you.

I'm with Cherryl and Susan, Brian. Be yourself :) "Those who mind don't matter and those who matter dont mind" ;-)
It can be hard for sure opening up, just stay confident and true to you.

I spent far too many years letting psoriasis control my life. That ended a few years ago and I’m so much happier now.
