Common with most, does your disability hold you back from dating? Okay agreed, anxiety is on high scores when mingling online. Hey, but you are not the only one going through this phase? Even normal able-bodied people suffer from great apprehension. Is my picture enthralling enough? Oh, does my hair look impressive? Got it! But congratulations for at-least trying and reaching out to the world. Dating sites for developmentally disabled people are on a rise these days. Gone are the times when digging in a lonesome life was indeed the only thought in the minds of weak unfortunate people. Honestly, not unfortunate. You are probably blessed with ample strength which you are yet to realize.
So go ahead and find your love of life. Online dating is certainly trending. What better to converse with people, know about their likings or disliking and chat away for hours or days. Risks related to heart-break is undoubtedly lesser here than in real life. However by less, I don’t mean there are no heart-wrenching situations ever. Cruisers will play with love and take advantage of emotions. So being a little watchful about your own activities can save you big time. Wondering how? Here’s a quick guide you can follow:
- Desperate lovers (Not Ideal!) – Okay so you’ve been hanging hats alone for a while now. So what? Does it really allow you to mingle or fall for anyone you think is interested in you? No! You always have a choice. Judge the person before signing up for a commitment.
- Physical weakness is your best strength – Now that you are into this impressing and getting impressed business, have you lately updated a snap of yours that looks pretty swanky? Good, as long as your heart feels elated, do anything you want. Ofcourse can of worms always pop open when your life is just like a bed of rose. So, putting up with comments like – Hey, are you handicapped because most of the times, I see pictures of you either standing or sitting? Or ‘I am sorry for your wheelchair life’! I know it’s hard to swallow but please don’t break!
Physically challenged or not, confidence is always a key to win attention. Use the charisma and zeal in you. There are a lot of good people around. Let them see a real you and not a broken one!
- Do not make out asap – Loud and clear! After living a watchful life for years, you do not want to jump into the arms of any Tom, Dick or Harry. If rushing relationships is what you are seriously into, take control and put a halt to it right-away. Talking your hearts out is okay, knowing each other sounds very fine, fixing dates is cool too but making love soon-after is not ideal. Don’t be a desperate and understand the person well enough before delving into the deeper and serious parts of a relationship.
Get this message straight – after signing up in any of the dating sites for developmentally disabled, it is pretty likely to have your inbox flooded with serious and cheesy messages. Obviously there are players waiting to check how broken you are and how desperate you are to get intimate with anyone who casts a spell in just a single conversation. The best suggestion – filter your inbox and speak to ones who you think genuinely need your attention. Bid farewell to the rest. It’s okay!
