Dating with severe arthritis is hard. Rejection due to arthritis is hard. I'm beginning to think it's an impossible task to find someone who is willing to accept my arthritis condition. Blah…

    Good things come to those who wait, not those who seek; hang in there honey you have a goog heart. Better to wait and see than seek and sink ;o)

    I'm definitely not anxious to find another. I'm just drawing light to the point that shallow people reject because of this disease. In fact I wonder if this is common or not.

    Hang in there; it usually happens- when you are looking. It's awesome to become friends, b/c you have to be friends in any realtionship to make it work for you, so don't give up- Sometimes…you have to try on 3 outfits before you find one that fits. Sometimes…you leave the store with nothing, just know- yes it will happen, keep a positive attitude, and a bright smile, with an open heart.

    Hang in there beautiful! I know that rejection is a hard thing to face, I didn't like it either and it hurts. I have known a couple of people in my life including me that took a chance that paid off. There are still good men out there, I didn't think there were but I was blessed with one. Neither of us is perfect but we were made for each other. One thing I learned that I will never forget is that the most important events in my life have happened in their time. Not in the time that I thought that they should have. You are such a pretty girl and I would venture to say that you have a beautiful heart to go with it. At the right moment some wonderful things can happen. Blue Skies Drew

    PS Don't loose faith or hope. In your heart and mind your strength resides.

    Please Sofado,My heart crys out to you because when my Wife and I dated
    eight years prior to marriage for I thought she was to good of a person for me and my problem's. Little did I know the Good Lord above had sent me an Angel;
    After dating for a year and going our seperate ways only for us both to fall into failed marriages and turmoil,It would take eight years of turmoil before the circle
    of life would bring us back to what the Lord had set in place eight years earlier.
    Now there is two heart's woven into one. (God is Good)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Be patient Sofado,The Lord is doing his Great Works in finding the right person just for you,Someone who will love your heart and be uderstanding to and comfort your pain. (May God Comfort your Heart)

    There is such wisdom in these words. Jim and I were together for one year then went our separate ways as well. Twenty years of our lives passed before we were rejoined. I always contemplate why things happened the way they did, but I know I will never truly understand in this life. I do believe that I would never had appreciated my husband the way I do now if I had not suffered years with an abuser. I am grateful in a way that always amazes me. The best things in life never seem to come in the time we expect but the "Great Work" is in progress.

    Hearing these words from someone who has already found love may not bring you the comfort that you need, but again there is some wisdom here. Hang on to your faith. God will take care of the rest. May a gentle breeze of peace comfort you. You are in my heart. Drew
