Hi Bhavna. I am 23 years old and I am a wheelchair user. I want to upload my profile on a dating website. Do you think I should mention that I am disabled?
Name : Sunil, New Delhi
Ans: Hi Sunil. Thank you for writing to us. Hmm..this is a tricky question with no 'one' answer. You can choose to disclose it subtly in a profile picture, or on the other hand you could wait until you meet your date for the first time.
There is no right way to do it. A lot of people would not choose to leave it until the date but disclosing too early can make a disability seem like an obstacle, which it is not. Perhaps you can look for a way to speak about yourself and your interests in a smart and interesting way, without making the disability the main factor.
