This week at Happen: Dating when you’re disabled

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 8:46 am

MSN.com, Match.com, HappenMagazine.com: they’re in a healthy and satisfying 3-way relationship. Meaning that you can find MSN/Match.com’s “Ask Lynn” columns –penned by BG’s alter ego — over at Happen now as well.

This week Lynn responds to Hoping It Works, a fellow who’s online relationship is ready to go IRL, only he’s left out certain information about himself. No, it’s not that he’s gained 20 pounds since his profile pic shot on Spring Break ’96 — it’s that he is has a disability.

I don’t know how to bring this up into casual conversation because we have not had that many online conversations. I’m concerned about saying too much or having too many rules that will turn her off, but if I don’t say enough it could cause a situation that’s dangerous for me.

What to say and when to say it? Read the full letter at Happen for Lynn’s take, then add your own in the comments or experiences below!

  2. I use a wheelchair and have a speech disabiliy as a result of Cerebral Palsy. In my online dating profiles I akways mention it in my profile. I don’t want to waste anyone’s time if they can’t deal. Also in my case, my speech disability makes it too difficult to really do the phone thing, before meeting so want people to know why beforehand. I also say that my disabiliy weeds out complete jerks, though not weird men, lol.
