In Season 1 of I Am Shauna Rae, Shauna also shared details about the difficulties of finding a suitable partner, the conflicts arising from her attempts to become less reliant on her family, and other subjects.
"There's plenty of bad situations that can happen when it comes to people that want to date me. The attraction to younger people ... is an issue. There have been times that I have attracted that," she explained in a clip. "There haven't been like super old, creepy guys all the time — but sometimes they are ... and it's just creepy."
In Season 2, it looks like Shauna is testing the dating waters with a man named Dan, who she met online. Furthermore, a matchmaker set her up on a blind date with a different man who also has pituitary dwarfism. So we'll have to see what (if anything) comes from these encounters.
