Dating the visually impaired
Through the years, I’ve had my fair share of questions about blind people in relation to dating and romance and so I’m going to write a post addressing some of the most common questions both me and a lot of my fellow blindies have received.I hope it solves a few mysteries for you sighted people out there.So in short, if you are trying to attract a blind person, or just want to know the answers to those questions, the answer is, do exactly what you would do if the object of your fancy could see. However, aside from the practicality of sight, being with a sight impaired person has some advantages too.Not just in terms of behaviour, but also in taking care of your look. Flirting with a blind man for me at least, is a whole different thing to flirting with someone sighted.If anyone could give me some tips, suggestions, or ideas, it would be greatly appreciated. He's recently blind, he lost vision in one eye a few years back but only lost vision in the other in October. It also probably doesn't matter at all, but theee is a significant age difference between us. If you're worried you'll do something wrong I'd just be open and honest about that with him.I know I'd personally rather know someone didn't want to do something wrong, so that I could reassure them.
Update: Since I wrote this post, I have been very fortunate to find love myself. Ladies, if you’d use make-up dating a sighted person, do it for the blind man too.My experience with blind men is also that they like it when you wear something which shows off your shape a little.But like sighted women, blind women appreciate a man making an effort with their looks.She may not be able to see your ketchup spotted t-shirt, mismatched trainers or that pen mark on your right thigh, but if she somehow gets to hear about it from a friend who happened to see you on a date, she won’t likely be impressed with you.
