Don't let the PWS hold you back. It took a while for me to jump into the dating pool because of how I thought others would perceive it. You have to look at in in the sense that if someone else has an issue with your PWS, then that is their problem, not yours. Put yourself out there and see what happens. I am not going to lie, it is REALLY tough, but in the end it is worth it. Use your PWS to your advantage, it will help people remember who you are, which is always a benefit, don't ever hide who you really are.
