The Dos and Donts When Dating With Disability

Dec 4, 2007
There are a lot of people in this world who are differently abled. There are a lot of people in this world who have invisible disabilities and looking at them one would be very surprised to know this. For such people dating with their disability can get a little difficult. But there is a way around this now!

A sad but true fact is that today visibly disabled people are the fairly stigmatized and this includes obese people. These very same people probably have skills that are superior because of their disability. But they get discriminated against despite this talent. For people afflicted with invisible disabilities, things can get more complicated.

So then how does one go about dating with disabilities? Surf the net, find dating for the disabled sites where you can meet similarly afflicted people, get registered and you are ready to date. Get some pointers from disabled friends who are already in to dating.

A good way to start would be to initiate a conversation and find out what needs to be done with respect to the disability in question. You can move on to more intimate conversation if you are able to convey that you are open to communicate about your disability however sensitive the topic may be.

Dating with disabilities can be an exciting and enriching experience if you go about it with the right attitude. There will be stares and there will be awkward dates but you will learn from each experience. Each date will show you what you can expect from other disabled or differently abled people and you will be able to take the experience of one date to the next.

There are certain points that you should keep in mind when dating. Keep your personal information to yourself till such time as you are comfortable with the person and you feel you can trust him or her. If there is talk of meeting outside the safety of online dating then ensure that the place you pick is very public and stick to your own mode of transport. Keep friends informed of your whereabouts.

While dating or chatting online, keep personal data confidential. Keep a separate email account just for this type of communication and steer clear of people whose pester factor runs high. There are those who think they must keep on chasing are those you must stay away from. Look out for inconsistent answers to your questions.

Remember most dating sites are for free and if any are asking for money then read the fine print carefully. Keep your options open and discuss with friends if need be.

Dating with disabilities is fun if you take it with the right spirit and the right sense of caution. Your dates will be as enjoyable as you want them to be. So go on, get into the dating scene today!
