Back in the quaint old pre-dating site days, I was surprised to learn an SWF I’d met off a personals ad had left out one important abbreviation in describing herself… TS… Tourette Syndrome.
I instantly went into overdrive attempting to make her comfortable with my painstakingly blasé reaction, to which she attributed her ability to keep her symptoms in check. But I must admit the shock of her news kicked off a surprised expletive or two in my head.
To not make her think I wouldn’t call her again because of her condition, I called her again. After which I didn’t call her again.
Blame it on the W in SWM. “Wuss.”
