Female paraplegic dating ohio
While I often have an easier time talking about same subjects with folks in my community, I also get great support from non-disabled allies.
My friends’ suggestions of dating your own kind also extend to whom they try to fix me up with.
Maybe I could charm her so much that she would take me on as a client for free. Her ads could say, “If I could help this poor slob find love, I can find it for anybody.”With my friend’s help, I upload my profile to the site.
I hear nothing back except for a few invites to wine tasting mixer and a square dancing singles night that are sponsored by her company.
Being advised to stick to your own kind is ironic coming from people who claim to be anti-racist.
None of my friends would ever tell a person of color to try dating their own kind, but for some reason that message is fine when it comes to disability.
“I just started my business, and I am not sure if I have enough clients to serve you.” Enough clients? Perhaps she has an intake form that lists the types of disabilities one would be OK with dating. Perhaps she is psychic and knows my disability and knows her clientele asked not to be set up with someone with my condition.
“Well it’s just that…” She paused, trying to choose her words carefully.
Perhaps she didn’t realized people with disabilities might use her service.
After more verbal ping-pong about whether people with disabilities could date “normies,” I claimed a temporary victory.
She agreed to let me upload my profile to her site.
