What Do You Guys Say to Your Surroundings?

      I'm 29, and stuck in my 2nd master studies. As my T fluctuates with facial pain I'm working on therapy, but it might take another couple of years. So no graduation yet. T makes me also tired and careless. I'm not depressed, I can laugh but it's quite hard.

      Most friends I know already have a job, relationship and a kid coming. No such thing as health problems. If I go onto datingsites and say that I'm still with my parents (don't work sidejobs because of T) most women are gone in seconds. I was trying to look for a girlfriend to have some distraction and loving someone might distract me from pain and T.

      What do you tell your surroundings? Do you tell dates that you are at home and don't work because of T (I've read that some of you are). Do you guys tell friends that you have T or H?

      Codaz im almost your age,
      i have home office but i also see clients at their office
      so its a serious job, even that i havent start dating again
      ive been using tinder for hook ups
      i think you should go for it, go on dates.
      if the girl wont stay because of Tinnitus
      then she was not worth your time.

      nothing wrong with living with the parents.

      Because it freaking distracts a lot, takes a huge amount of energy and then I forget the facial pain.

      I'm trying to figure that out. Ask a lot of people the same question here and a lot of them don't know.

      The biggest thing is to force yourself to do it. I was worried about how I'd do graphic design and work on computers, but I just do it now. Once you start concentrating and just do it, it gets easier.
