A cousin of mine has TS, and it has not dissipated in symptoms as he has aged. Yes, I'd have gone out with him but it turned out he was an ex of my sister's I'd never met and when I found that out, I had to pass.

He has had a very difficult time maintaining employment due to his tics, and, consequently, difficulty with employment contributed to the dissolution of his marriage. I put them back in touch with each other and they dated for a short time again. I still think of him nearly 25 years later and wonder how he is.

Brent Zillwood, 22, is one of the subjects of the new Channel 4 English documentary "The Undateables," an honest look at what it's like to date with a disability — something 70 percent of England wouldn't even consider, according to a recent survey (via Daily Mail).

Zillwood's co-stars are some men and women with dwarfism, a man with Aspergers Syndrome and one with Aperts Syndrome, which causes contortion of the face.

Some forums can only be seen by registered members. If I knew from the start that he had TS, then it wouldn't bother me at all.

We actually think its quite funny and joke about it a lot rather than stress about it.

If someone else doesn't like it, that's their problem as far as I'm concerned.

I know I'm going to get flamed for this but I once went to a restaurant to try and relax and have a nice meal and there was a guy there with TS and he kept whooping and yelling and screaming every damn minute.
