Dating when you are disabled
Disclosure leads to stronger bonds being formed, and I will say to anyone: if you do not feel comfortable disclosing your disability to your partner, they may not be the Prince (or Princess) Charming.
There is nothing wrong with you if a disclosure process goes awry!
If you have a date planned with someone who has a disability, you can ask to go over their limitations (if any) with them while you’re on the date.Whether it’s hiking, a concert, a movie, or even something like driving over to come visit you, many people with disabilities are more than happy to let you know if we cannot do something, if we are tired of walking and worn out halfway through the date or just need a five minute break from walking around the mall.We would want you to tell us if you were unable to do something, or felt unsafe doing something.Allow your partner to get to know you as a , and not just by what you physically can or cannot do.Dating somebody will not last very long if you have no common interests Luckily, like I previously stated, he was more accepting than I imagined and I was totally in the wrong.
