When to tell?
Hi, I am currently single, but I have started using dating sites as I do not go out very often. I am struggling to figure out when and how to tell potential dates that I have a disability. Years ago before these sites, if I was in a pub or restaurant etc potential daters could clearly see me with my crutches and that eliminated the awkwardness. Online though is a whole other minefield, I have been treated very badly by some because as a job I put mother, which made 2-3 guys feel that they could send me abusive messages assuming that I lived on benefits. I do survive through benefits, I also have always worked since age 13, even now I volunteer and charity fund raise to pay back in some way. I get very isolated and am very lonely, I am disabled but still have normal human desires how do I make this better?
