Apnea Sexy: Man with OSA seeks Woman with Same!

Does OSA raise a red flag on the dating scene? I'm clueless since I was already in a committed relationship when diagnosed, but it remains an open question, especially for my single friends. Here's one personals ad I came across that just "puts it out there":
"Yes, I am a man with Obstructive Sleep Apnea. I am not obese, nor do I have a neurological condition. Some doctors claim they can 'fix me' with surgery, but after much research about the procedures I decided not to pursue surgery at this time since results could be mixed or complications could arise. Hopefully in the future, there will be other treatments and the surgeries will be more compelling.

I am an intelligent, kind, and passionate man and I refuse to let the CPAP machine dampen my social life and passion for life and, hopefully, for someone like you! Are there any smart, cute women out there that have this condition too? I don't feel like I need to find someone else with this condition, since it is not all that bad and most women are understanding, but I thought it might interesting to try to meet someone else with this condition. It certainly would give us something to talk about and spark our first conversations!"

I don't know so much about the lovelife but my husband hates it when I face him in the night and the vent blows air at him.

I am often asked by folks newly diagnosed with OSA whether CPAP or OSA hampers my love life. NO!
