Just because you have a disability, it doesn’t mean your love life should suffer. There are many ways you can find love and one of the easiest is going online. When you get back on the market there are some things you should know.
Disabled dating sites have millions of users who are looking for love just like you. Here you can socialize and communicate with other singles who are also interested in dating. Create your profile, write something interesting about yourself and your search can begin. Here are some tips which will help you with your dating. Good luck!
Making a profile
Say something about you that is unique and interesting. There are millions of users, so you’d probably want to stand out. Be aware that some of the people out there are dangerous. Make it clear that you are strong and independent person (and that they don’t want to mess with you).
Take your time
You don’t need to rush anything. There is no rule that says you should go out on a date with every person you chat with. Take time to know the person before you decide to meet them in real life. Be honest when you are talking to someone. Tell them about your disability and the way it can affect a future relationship.
Don’t reveal everything
Keep some personal information to yourself. The person you are chatting with doesn’t have to know where you live or what your landline number is. They have to earn your trust first.
Always meet in public
This applies to any kind of dating, not just handicap dating. When you are meeting for the first time, do it 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. You can never be too careful. Bring your cell phone with you.
Be careful with alcohol
Disabled singles should be extra careful when it comes to alcohol. It’s ok to have a glass of wine, but don’t drink too much. You could lose ability to judge and take care of yourself in case your date wants to take advantage of you. Although you have spent hours and hours chatting online, always keep in mind that you don’t really know this person.
Listen to your gut
If something is off and you feel suspicious about your date and you don’t know why, make up an excuse and go home. There is no need to put yourself in any kind of danger. Do a little research about body language. People can lie but their bodies often tell the truth.
