The Undateables

Posted on 15 January 2014


People living with challenging conditions are often considered 'undateable' - this series meets a few and follows their attempts to find love

The dates this Thursday 16th January include John, who hopes to put his Asperger's to one side and meet his first ever girlfriend. There's also bisexual jazz singer Ruth, and the incurably romantic Zoe.

Ruth Ojadi said of her decision to take part in the series:

"Whilst I can understand the frustration felt by many within the community who do not have copralalia, it is however a part of life and reality for the 10% of us with Tourettes Syndrome who do and an opportunity for those of us to reiterate the facts. This is something I am always keen to address and I believe a gateway albeit grossly inflated by media, to converse and bust myths that lay with this very much misunderstood syndrome.

I particularly want to take part, as there had previously not been representation from the female and ethnic minority community of TS."
