Online dating is great but should you tell your date you have a disability?
February 1, 2018
Online dating is a popular way to meet new people and are fast catching up in India. But if you have a disability, should you tell your date upfront?
Dating with a disability comes with some added complications. Someone may have limited mobility and can meet only in some places. Or there might be language difficulties and this requires a certain level of understanding from the other person.
Should all this be stated on your profile or is it best disclosed while chatting online? Or better still, wait until you meet up and get them to see the real you before revealing your disability?
If you were to turn up on the date in a wheelchair, your date may be surprised because you did not mention it online. Some people simply don't get disabilities and think its OK to ask intrusive questions.
The best approach many believe is to be simply upfront about you disability. Don't lie about it. Besides if the person you are dating cannot see past the disability and see who you really are, then he or she is not the right person for you.
