Stupidly Simple Ways To Make Amputee Dating Easier

Online dating has proven itself to be one of the easiest ways to meet new people. You’ll meet some good people and some total nutters but along the way, you will meet people that you wouldn’t normally have had the opportunity to meet. It certainly opens the dating horizon when you think about it, doesn’t it?

The problem with online dating, especially for amputee singles, is that it is often easy to become someone you are not. It’s hard to tell a lot about someone from a dating site profile alone and when it comes to bringing up a disability, it’s hard to know whether or not you should state your disability right there at the very beginning. Do you want to just blurt it out like that? Are you brave enough to just blurt it out like that?

If you have a very obvious disability, there’s nothing wrong with showing it in your profile picture, or in one of the other picture that you can normally upload too. For example, if you usually use a wheelchair or are an amputee, your profile picture could be one of you in that wheelchair or one which shows that you are an amputee. It gets things out the way early on, and if they aren’t interested, you won’t ever need to know about because you never had that conversation. Chances are, if you are using an amputee dating website, the people there know that the members are amputees in some way so that kinda makes things even easier still, doesn’t it?

At the same time, try not to be overly sexy in your pictures. Men and women tend not to take members seriously when they have a overly-naughty profile picture. It just looks like you’re not looking for something serious, you know? And dare I say it… easy?

If you don’t have an obvious disability, try to pop it in the profile description of yourself somewhere. Normally you will find an ‘About Me’ box on the profile page and this gives you the perfect opportunity to say whatever it is that you gotta say. If you are looking for deaf dating web sites, for example, you could state that you are deaf. If you are blind, you could mention that. If you need a wheelchair or stick to get around, drop it in. It’s just as important for people to accept your disability as it is for them to read whatever it is you’re looking for in your new love interest!

You don’t need to make a big deal about it. In fact, I would suggest making it a fleeting sentence, but at least have it mentioned somewhere. If you are on a “regular” dating site rather then one of the many dating sites for the disabled that now exist, it might not be clear right away that you have a disability, and it could make for awkward conversation later on, or on the first meeting.

Getting the whole disability chat out of the way right from the beginning is an idea that you’ll probably want to put into practice sooner rather than later. Not everyone is as open minded as you would want them to be, but at the same time, some people are a lot nicer than they first may appear. We’re not saying that disabled dating will be easy, but it definitely is worth it when you find someone decent, right?

At the end of the day, the motto here is to not give up. If you don’t have any luck on the particular dating site you are on, change dating sites. It might even be worth your while to check out sites specifically created to make dating for the disabled a lot easier. You never know until you give it a shot, right?
