Having a disability isn’t the end of your social life. You can still find love and have a fulfilling relationship. Thanks to the Internet you can find yourself a date without ever having to leave your home.
Disabled dating was once a taboo, but today many singles with disability have an active dating life. There is no reason why you shouldn’t be one of them. Log into one of the dating sites and let your adventure begin. If you haven’t been active in the dating world for a while, these tips will help you get back on that horse.
Log into one of the disabled dating sites and make a killer profile. Have in mind that you should say something interesting about yourself if you want to stand out from the crowd. Writing that you like sunsets and cuddling in front of a fireplace will get you nowhere. Be specific about your likes and dislikes. Don’t just mention that you like reading, but say which is your favorite author or book from childhood. Never complain about your disability. Let the world know that you are strong and independent person. Many con artists target weak disabled individuals for their scams, so always keep your eyes wide open when you are chatting with someone new.
You have all the time in the world
It is safe to say that you probably won’t marry the first person you talk to. Dating takes time. Chat with various people, but go on dates only with ones you really like. Get to know someone before you suggest meeting face to face. If someone is bullying you, just block them. There is no need to put up with someone who is getting on your nerves, especially online.
Be careful what you reveal
It is always better to be safe than sorry. Never reveal where you live or what your land line number is in the chat room.
Meet in a crowded place
Disabled singles must obey this rule. When you are meeting someone from the Internet for the first time meet them in a public place. It can be a restaurant or a park, as long as it’s crowded with people and there is handicap access. Make sure you tell your friends and family where you are going to be and bring your cell phone with you.
Don’t get drunk
You should always stay in control over the situation. This means you shouldn’t get tipsy. It’s ok to have a glass of wine, but don’t drink too much. In case that something goes wrong you should have a clear head.
Feel free to leave
Always trust your gut. If something feels off about your date don’t hesitate to leave. You don’t have to do it in an obvious way. This time your disability is your advantage. Say that you are not feeling well for some reason and that you have to go home. Look at your date’s body language. They can say whatever they want to, but their body will tell the truth.
