Navigating a new relationship can be tricky for anyone. There are the usual things to consider as you’re getting to know someone -- their likes, dislikes, and passions. But how do you handle it when one of you has a phobia?

Maybe you have phobias yourself, or maybe you have experience dating someone who does. Call us with your stories about how you navigate phobias while dating: 866-893-5722.
