How long before you tell your significant other you have a medical condition?

Obviously nobody wants to start a first date with staying they have a medical condition. But how long before you open up to someone you are dating about it?

  • When the two people involved have expressed mutual feelings and wish to continue the relationship further. Then it´s time to be open as good relationships require honesty and being able to live with each others´ faults. Medical conditions shouldn´t be an issue if there´s already a strong attachement from both sides. If the medical condition however affects sexual activity or other things that are usually present at the beginning, it´s wise to tell that to your parent when things move to that direction.

  • I've struggled with this quite a lot.

    I have trouble finding the right time to bring up mental illness. I have self harm scars which are very noticeable when I'm not wearing long sleeves and pants.

    Finding the right time is hard. I want to be honest, but I don't want to scare anyone away

  • Depends on the condition. If it's communicable, before you could transmit. If not, before it could effect your activities or lifestyle together. I don't wanna find out my girl has a heart condition half way through the haunted house, or she's allergic to dogs after I just adopted a pooch.

  • It depends on the condition and do your med's control the problem? If your med's do, then there's no rush. But if it's a possible life threatening condition, it would be to your benefit to let him know ASAP.

  • A health issue that is contagious: immediately.

    An issue that only affects you: after you’re in a mutually committed relationship.

  • The second I know it might be going somewhere. Get any potential deal breakers ( sexual past, credit problems, and medical issues) out of the way as soon as possible.

  • Depends on if when you plan to get serious with him and he’s feeling the same. You wait at least that long.
