Dating with a Disability: Part 1
Part one of a series.
Last summer, I was looking through some BioNews Services articles when I came across one about online dating. The young woman who wrote the article talked about how she never felt like she fit in at school and because of that, she hadn’t ever dated anyone. She went on to say how she was considering making a dating app profile. I empathized with her story because I had never dated anyone either. I’ve never really known how to interact with guys, and I didn’t dare try for fear of looking like a fool. That day, I decided I was done waiting for that Hollywood movie moment when some stranger would walk up to me and start flirting. The article gave me the courage to finally make my own online dating profile.
