Dating for blind people
Sometimes one person is more interested in the match than the other, which may make it more difficult on the person arranging the date to judge whether the date will be successful.
Purebliss and straightedge, you both seem like good people. The only thing I can think of is maybe work more off line in person. I have in my profile letting people know that I can't see. Wow dude, I don't think I've ever seen a post like this.I think that car question is so beyond disgusting in every way anyway, but that's another story.It is going to be a lot harder online than it is in person when meeting someone through friends or something. What I can say though is that being honest is the best way to go and, sure this will weed people out from wanting to talk and meet, but those people are morons anyway, so who wants them?But Jolliff leaves out one detail that is part of her daily life: She’s blind.“It’s usually in between our initial contact and our first date that I tell them,” Jolliff says.The two persons who take part in the blind date have never met or seen each other, thus the name blind date.
Therefore, it is the responsibility of the person who arranges the date to ensure that they are a good match.
Yet her dog can’t help her swipe right or left on Tinder. They’re also completely image-based, she says, meaning they don’t reflect how she experiences life.
Taking pictures “isn’t even something that crosses my mind,” she says. Last fall, Jolliff signed up for e Harmony and Ok Cupid.
“I will not ever be the person that surprises them.
But, at the same time, I get a little bit of conversation in to see if we are hitting it off.” Jolliff, 29, has been blind since birth due to what’s known as Leber Congenital Amaurosis, a hereditary disorder in which most of the rods and cone cells in Jolliff’s retinas never developed.
Her world isn’t pitch-black, but weak muscles keep Jolliff’s eyes mostly shut.
