It seems most times when I get chatting with someone and finally admit I have a mental illness, it is the moment I never hear back. I usually reveal this after emailing back and forth (just before meeting up stage). I tell them the truth – in that I have had no symptoms for several years and I do everything I possibly can to prevent any relapse and I work full-time etc. No matter how I explain it whether it’s through writing or over the phone, results in rejection. I usually don’t hear back, or it’s “I don’t date schizophrenics” or “I can’t trust you with my kids sorry “
They say honesty is the best policy. It’s getting very disheartening. Keeping in mind with online dating if one thing about you is a little “off” it is slash and burn operation.
