Ouch talk disability attraction and dating
A person with a healthy view on relationships is not going to stop you from doing something just because they physically can’t.
The more you’re willing and able to help us, the more we’ll probably want to do!
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.
A while ago, I had been in a relationship with someone who said they were all for advocating for the rights of disabled people, happy to show off our relationship, and willing to learn about my spina bifida, but then turned around and said “the way you talk about your disability and personify it as your whole being is unattractive.” Well, I hate to break it to anyone that has this mindset, but we live with a disability!We want you to be just as comfortable being with us as we are with you!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.Learn more about how Oath collects and uses data and how our partners collect and use data.Select ' OK' to allow Oath and our partners to use your data, or ' Manage options' to review our partners and your choices.
