Dating With Disability - Some Precautions

Jan 15, 2008
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.

Sadly, many people who are visibly disabled are stigmatized by this fact. This is true for many disabilities, from the blind, to people in wheelchairs, to the obese. Regardless of the abilities and talents these people possess, some people never take the time to get to know them, instead relying on ignorance based prejudgments. For people with invisible disabilities, it can be even 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 into dating.

In the initial stages, it is best to start chatting informally without tackling any major issues. You might want to talk about your disability or common interests at the beginning. Intimate conversations can come later when you are more comfortable with your online friend.

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.

When meeting in person, you need to be careful. A public place and at a time when other people are around are the basic thumb rules you will need to follow. Always let someone else know where you will be, with whom and when you are expected back. This is for your safety and can protect you from becoming a victim to scams and criminals.

Personal details should be strictly confidential. You should always make a separate email account for dating purposes. Stay away from those people who pester you a lot or try to chase you. Also beware of people repeatedly asking for your personal information, or who give different answers when asked the same questions.

Remember most dating sites are free and if any are asking for money then read the fine print carefully and determine it the services exclusive to that site are worth your money. Keep your options open and discuss with friends if need be.

Dating with a disability can be quite fun and rewarding if you have the right spirit and a sense of caution. Your dates can be very enjoyable if you relax and let things flow. In all, the rewards are well worth the risks of dating.
