On line dating for handycap people dating is she interested signs
It was painful to realize that the hard part isn’t over once someone learns that I’m disabled.
Going on dates with me can be a crash course on disability, and I recognize that’s not always easy for non-disabled people to process.
The first time I forayed into online dating, I let my wheelchair show just a little in my photos.
This particular rejection, however, unleashed a wave of panic within me.
I ended up going on one date with him, and then another.
For the second date, my bagel suggested a painting night (a social event that involves paintbrushes, canvases, acrylics and, usually, wine) since I’d told him how much I enjoy them.
He found a Groupon and I researched a location, picking out a restaurant in New York City that was supposed to be wheelchair accessible.
As it turned out, the restaurant was accessible, but the painting class was happening in a room upstairs.
My disability is part of my identity and I’m a loud, proud disability rights activist, but there is so much more that defines me (you know, like the stuff I’ve got in my profile).
