Dating service for the disabled
“So you are saying you don’t believe non-disabled people can date people with disabilities?
It was by sheer chance that I ended up having a debate about dating and disability with this woman.I would like to think they have my best interest at heart, but I can’t help but wonder if there is an unconscious fear of suggesting me to certain people.They might assume if they set me up with someone they know, that person might think they’re playing a mean trick.After more verbal ping-pong about whether people with disabilities could date “normies,” I claimed a temporary victory.She agreed to let me upload my profile to her site.“Well it’s just that…” She paused, trying to choose her words carefully.
Perhaps she didn’t realized people with disabilities might use her service.
She claimed her husband and a few friends believed she was developing feelings for her client.
My friend wasn’t mad that people thought she was dating an employer, instead she was upset when people thought she had a “thing” for a man with a disability.
The suggestions this woman made about me dating other people with disabilities has surprisingly been made by a lot of my progressive friends.
Whenever I ask for dating tips, some have asked me if I tried dating women with disabilities.
So far I have resisted the temptation to dust off my cowboy boots or pretend I’m a wine snob.
