Upfront and personal – how much should we share?

‘I live with a chronic illness that isn’t obvious to others but can be disabling,’ said the email. ‘I’ve joined a Christian dating website but I can’t decide whether to mention my condition in my profile.

The power of your authenticity

If you don’t have authenticity you don’t have relationship. You’re not in a real relationship with someone if you’re not honest, open and vulnerable; because they’re not in relationship with you – they’re just in relationship with a shallow projection of you.
