In brief: Not more so
Dating is always a bit of an adventure for anyone! the challenge for someone with OCD depends on how severe the symptoms are.
Bad OCD can create serious hurdles for someone trying to work on a relationship. Any rituals, compulsions or obsessions may not be understood and seem strange or disturbing to one's date.In that cae, one should discuss OCD sooner rather than later.
