Solving the problem of disclosing your illness to a potential mate

When I start dating a woman I tell her I am a serial killer. Then when she eventually finds out I am schizophrenic and not a serial killer the schizophrenia doesn’t look as bad in comparison. Problem solved.

I use a similar method, but I tell her I’m a politician.

The very fact that there is some finite amount of time between the two admissions. This could be the whole story. Genius.

Lol mine popped up as a result of me being in a bit of an impulsive mania. So due to my early actions I mentioned at the time I had eith schizophrenia or bipolar. I even shared one of my episodes in detail to explain the situation. I just let her read one i had posted on here long ago. I was forgiven and we moved on from it and were doing great almost a decade later.
