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?

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.

I have a 13-year-old daughter who is physically disabled. She finds it hard to make friends and suffers from low self-esteem. She hates going to school as she feels that her classmates make fun of her. She has become quiet even at home and does not engage with any of the family members. Please help
