Dating is never simple. There are some rules you have to follow if you want to be successful at it. Same goes for dating for disabled. If you want to have a positive dating experience, follow these guidelines.
Always keep in mind that dating should be fun. If you are relaxed, your date will be, too. It doesn’t matter whether you are chatting on disabled dating sites or you are on a real offline date. Keep the conversation light. Share with your date what excites you, and learn what excites them. Sharing passions with each other will pull you closer.
Don’t assume anything
When you are disabled dating, it is always better to be safe than sorry. You can Google your date to see if they have a shady past. But researching them any further is not wise. You can find out about their likes and dislikes and form an opinion about them without ever talking to them face to face. This preconceived notion can keep you away from getting to know your date. So don’t assume anything about them. When you talk to them in person see whether you like them or not.
Don’t interview your date
Having a conversation is one thing. Interrogating someone is a completely different thing. Ask your date about their interests and life goals, but also talk about yours. Keep the conversation flowing.
Don’t put all your eggs into one basket
When you have only one date in months, you will feel pressured that everything goes well. Instead of being relaxed, you will be nervous that something will go wrong. Your date will sense that kind of desperation. Dating is a game of cat and mouse, and if the mouse is just playing dead, the game isn’t fun anymore. So, instead of worrying that your happiness relies on the outcome of that one date, go out with several people. This way you will take the pressure off, every date will be a new chance and you will be more relaxed and fun.
Do something for yourself
Don’t try to please everyone. When you are going on a date, you don’t have to do what they want when they want it just to get them to like you. Do something you enjoy. If that is sitting in the park in the middle of the afternoon feeding the birds, then do so. Your date can sit beside you. You can even bring a picnic basket and make a day out of it. When you are doing what you really enjoy, you will be more relaxed and thus more interesting to your potential match.
The matter of paying
Don’t make a big deal of it. If you are a guy, be a gentleman and pay for drinks (or dinner). If you are a girl, offer to pay your part. When you are on the first date and you don’t know the outcome, always have enough money to cover the entire bill. This way you will avoid any unpleasant situations.
