Dating someone with a spinal cord injury

Rated 4.48/5 based on 671 customer reviews

I thought my experiences with Tinder dating in different cities would be different, but weirdly, I found it was totally the same in all three cities.When I first set up my Tinder profile, I wasn't sure if I should make my disability super obvious in my photos.

We have had many conversations about his injury and what to expect.So I felt the same way about my online dating profile.The first Tinder date I went on, I didn't tell the guy that I was disabled before we got together.We'd been talking for about two weeks leading up to the date, mostly about our careers and where we were from, and I was intrigued by him because we're both from the same part of the country and it's a small town and that seemed interesting. Once he saw I was in a wheelchair, he immediately wouldn't look me in the eye for the rest of the night and we basically spent the whole date ignoring the elephant in the room.It was the most uncomfortable date I've ever been on and felt really forced, so toward the end of the night, I finally just brought it up and said, "Are you OK?
