I have made the decision not to pursue dating while having this condition. I know I'm withdrawn, and unwilling to be as social as a normal person would. In other words, this condition makes me someone who a girl wouldn't want to be in a relationship with. It's hard because despite what we might think, a lot of people don't recognize that we have this condition. I know for me, I managed hiding it pretty well. I did end up pushing away a girl because of this condition. She didn't know about it, but I decided to act disinterested so that she would leave me alone. I also have different views about sex than most people. I'm a Christian so I personally don't believe in sex before marriage. As far as that goes, I wouldn't be sleeping with girls anyways. I did struggle thinking that I would never be married though. It was very tough to deal with. I believe my lips are showing progress with constant moisture/leaving them alone though. Hopefully I'll be healed and this won't be an issue for me in the future. I definitely sympathize though. It's hard to be around girls and know that you can't have any romantic involvement with them.
