Too fat for online dating
Perhaps your date wants a tall women with blonde hair. Many disabled people just give up, even though many singles are for dating with disabled.
It’s just a matter of matching the right people together. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, as everyone has their own ways of doing things anyway.
You might think it would be more likely with the dudes whose initial messages are already a little sketchy, but it’s not uncommon to also receive abusive responses to rejection from the guy whose first message was polite, unassuming and/or charming.
Given that, it’s just the smarter option for women who don’t want to field a bunch of hostile and insulting messages not to respond to people to say “thanks but I don’t think we’re the right match.” Now, it’s certainly true that some job applicants also respond to rejection with hostility, but (a) they’re far less numerous than in online dating, (b) the intensity of the hostility seems to be lower, and (c) it’s part of the job in that situation to deal with the occasional whacked out response to rejection.
It shouldn’t be embarrassing to explain how you live, when you’re disabled dating.
Perhaps you’ve already had that experience, so that’s why you’ve decided to try dating with disabled too.
Everyone knows at least one or two couples who are now married.
That’s why everyone tries online dating at some point in their lives.
We do hear about people meeting online and finding their one true love.
Perhaps your telephone is set up with a relay service for the deaf and hard of hearing.
It may be difficult explaining to a non-disabled person that your dating days are not over, and in fact, you’re eager to find someone to share your life.
