Findings from the study indicate several themes among the subjects’ experiences: Choosing whether, why, when, how and what to disclose to partners; challenges of explaining tics and TS to others; reasons for concealing tics; impact of making disclosures to romantic partners; family and peers’ responses as a model for how romantic partners may respond; family and peers’ responses as a motivation for getting different responses from romantic partners; and considering genetics and children.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. Well after awhile I did not like the fact he was like a zombie. The ritilin that they pumped in him accualy made the tourettes worse. He does cut down during the summer but during the school years he takes it at 8 he is out like a light by 9.30LOL, I hear about an amazing number of schools that threaten to throw a kid out if there parents won't treat them for ADHD.
And even if I talked to a dude for a while it turned out that he was a creep with self-confidence issues that would project those on to me... I guess what I'm saying is I am one lucky girl who found a really great dude and Tourette's is a small price to pay for that. However when his Tourette's is bad Ricky is vulnerable and helpless (or he feels that way to me). Just to prove how crazy I am when he told me he had Tourette's my response was "and I'm a Taurus." That's Dragyn speak for "I do not care." And I don't. I worry more about how his Tourette's affects him and his life.2) What challenges and limitations do adults with TS face in dating and pursuing romantic relationships?3) How do adults with TS go about explaining their symptoms to romantic partners?when do you feel its appropriate to tell the other person? Iam east indian yes im brown...I have full blown Tourettes... And besides, if you find out they can't handle the TS , out they go! my advice would be to first attempt to just hang out with some girls as a 'buddy'.
for those of you who have told the other person, has he/she never responded negatively and what strategy did you use to tell him/her??? I guess I can't really help you much with that, because since I found out about TS in September I haven't been in a relationship with anyone. Teenwithtics: I know you posted your question a week ago but wanted to see what others would provide before jumping in. i have the swearing part .....i have had many girlfriends .not many but quite a bit like 5 or 6 lololol .....anyways dating is not an easy thing.. is hard for pretty much all of us with TS , no matter how old. I don't have time for wimpy women, and the TS weeds them out pretty quickly. Coprolexia is not a real symptom, it is something I made up - so no excuses, ey? If you start out by just befriending some girls that you think are nice, but not interested in dating, you won't feel so pressured and it'll help you become more comfortable hanging out with girls AND, who knows, maybe you'll end up developing something with one of them.Extreme Tourette's in adulthood, though sensationalized in the media, is a rarity; tics are often unnoticed by casual observers.In most cases, medication for tics is not necessary.These tics characteristically wax and wane, can be suppressed temporarily, and are typically preceded by an unwanted urge or sensation in the affected muscles.Some common tics are eye blinking, coughing, throat clearing, sniffing, and facial movements.Individuals with TS often face significant psycho-social challenges, given the public nature of their tics and the fact that their symptoms are often misunderstood by others.
