Dating with a disability
But, disabled people face more negative experiences in “first-time” dating, and that can totally ruin the outlook of hope that you had before.
I cannot, and I am not trying to, speak for every disabled person in my age range, but upon talking with my friends I am making a general consensus that it is fair to say we’ve all been significantly discouraged or disappointed when we started to put ourselves out there.
Again, gaining confidence in yourself is incredibly important here!
I have been working on building my self-confidence for a long time now, and I am finally in a good place, so I promise you it can happen! what happens when you are ready to date because you are confident in yourself and your self worth?
The first time I was disclosing to my boyfriend at the time was one of the most nerve-wracking things I have even done. I had created all of these fictitious scenarios in my mind that just screamed ideas like: “ you won’t be accepted anymore”, “he won’t accept your CP and you won’t feel safe”, “he could do so much better” and the list when on and on at the time!
Another important aspect of disclosure is to your partner.
