My experience grounded me, and it bestowed clarity.
Perhaps the stigma surrounding the words “cerebral palsy” prevented my matches from seeing how I’m a catch.
Relying on the wonders of Internet search engines I researched the subject when to disclose a disability while using an online dating service.
Whispers4has been helping disabled singles find love online since 2002.
We are a social disabled dating community for Differently Abled women and men to find love, friendship and support in a safe online dating environment.
According to society, disabled people are undesirable and therefore can never be “dating” or partner material. As someone with cerebral palsy myself, I think I hopefully can try to tackle this subject with some first hand experience!
First off, coming from a female’s perspective: dating is in 2016, regardless of whether or not you are disabled.I am the “25-year-old dude who loathes online dating.” The reader’s response to my email is interesting.I rather enjoyed it (especially the Tevye reference!Over the years many singles have connected through our unique service and have been married as a result.Our members say that meeting someone here is far more comfortable than on regular dating sites, as you don't have to start explaining any mobility issues or conditions you may have, to a prospective partner. Anyone that knows me knows that I love my quiet time alone (you can probably find me binging on Netflix), casual wine nights IN, I am so terrified of setting foot in clubs or big bar scenes, I have strong negative views of “hook up” culture, and I would just prefer to fly way under the radar.
