Don't let sweaty palms stop you from dating...that is,
if you want to date someone. I found this beautiful

It took me a few years, but I finally realized that a true love will love you for who you are. I remember the moment when I "came out" as a person with hyperhidrosis to my most significant others. The disclosure turned out to be anti-climatic...my hyperhidrosis didn't seem to phase anyone but myself. I remember one date who replied "Oh, really? I thought your hands were a little sweaty, but I didn't realize it was a big deal to you...so do you want to order some fries together?"
One of my most popular blog posts ever, published in 2007, covers the important topic of hyperhidrosis and dating. Another hyperhidrosis blog, Just a Little Sweat, just posted a lovely story about dating with hyperhidrosis. The author, a classical flutist from New York City, also found someone who loves her, sweat and all.
