Dating websites for people with special needs
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.
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.
In the nicest way possible, I made it clear to the woman that I wanted some real help in the dating game from a person, not a search engine.“Well I am not sure I can help you,” she said. Maybe she’s implying that she might be forced to set me up with dates with a few different women before I find the right one. Her rationale that there might not be enough clients interested in dating guys like me may be true.
“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.
She claimed her husband and a few friends believed she was developing feelings for her client.
They might assume if they set me up with someone they know, that person might think they’re playing a mean trick.
A friend had called my office complaining he had been rejected as a client by a new matchmaking service in town.
After I talked with him, I decided to try and sign up as a client, too.
“So you are saying you don’t believe non-disabled people can date people with disabilities?
” I asked a woman who opened a new matchmaking service in town.
