Missed opportunities

Today, I turned down a chance to go to a bar with a girl I like because I have an autoimmune disorder and don't want to get sick because of being irresponsible and obviously COVID 19. FML

I feel like if you told her that, she’d understand

Couldn't you just invite her to come drink at your place?

This is exactly Darwinism, or natural selection.

Did you explain you have an autoimmune disorder and therefore high risk?

I have a Primaryimmune I haven’t been out my house since the start of March

Tell her to bring back a beer for me

Nobody should be in a bar right now. It's not just fuck your life. Its fuck all of our lives. These are scary times.

Oh god, I feel you. I got the worst case of Henoch Schonlein Purpura after bad walking pneumonia at 16. I’m 35 with messed up kidneys and have been on meds to suppress my immune system for the last 6 months. I’d at least attempt to contact the girl and explain. Not everyone in the world are uncaring. Either way, with as much news about what coronavirus has done, no one could be blamed for playing it safe. But how about suggesting to talk via skype, or how about setting up a group virtual date with her and friends with a theme on Zoom/Discord? It might make her more willing to join if others participate.

It may seem sucky, but safety first these days. I think you made the right decision.
