I’m one of those people who tends to jump into things with both feet and have been since I was a kid.

Do you have the same argument with your partner, over and over again?
Are you tired of being single, wondering if you’ll ever meet “The One”?
It is not like you are harboring some deep dark secret or anything. How many people have blurted out all their medical conditions on the first date? So, let your best assets shine first – your smile, your hilarious sense of humor, your amazing ability to name every single president backwards (be careful with this one), your sense of fun and adventure. Right now is a really good time to think of a few funny quips to use when you finally have to strap on your CPAP mask.
Only when you make it to the bedroom should you mention your CPAP therapy, because at that point the setting will be intimate enough to finally introduce the subject. Having something funny to say will diffuse the awkwardness – if there is any.
