      Hi…
      I’m having a tough time dating with my ADD. I tell my dates that I have ADD and they always react very positively. Sometimes they tell me about a friend, coworker, family member that also has ADD. As the relationship progresses, I start to hear the same old things. “Relax” or “Why do you always have to look at your phone?” “Are you bored?” “Why do I have to repeat myself again? Didn’t you hear me?” I know it is frustrating to them…but it is 10x more frustrating for me.

      I’m just looking for some dating advice or help/support when starting a new relationship. Maybe how to explain to my current boyfriend what I need from him? Or??? I know there are a lot of great people here with lots of experience. Thank you in advance!

      Having fun in Chicago
