So YOU are Alison's new boyfriend! She's so excited about you. By the way, I'm Annie. Ask Alison. lol.

I think it's cool that you are thinking about a relationship with a blind person. Unfortunately, there aren't many like you. The world could use more interested sighted people.

Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Hi,

I am in the proccess of going blind because doctors have no clue how to treat me.

My adivice to you is to get to know her for who she is. Open yourself up and let her know things about you that no one else would know. Good and bad.
Find out what things you have in common and what you do not.

Because of my other conditions before my vision problems I have always had a really hard time finding relationships. This things will help break the ice to speak.
Just be honest with her.

Hope this helps.

Hank


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Having a relationship with anyone is a work in progress if you both want to grow. Learn as much as you can about her condition if her blindness came from a disease then communicate with her. Ask her want she needs and how she needs it. If she has had mobility training you will only need to assist her at times. In any relationship it all boils down to talking and understanding.
Do keep in mind how the sighted perceive the world is totally different then how we perceive it. We use all our other senses and the sighted use mostly the sight.
Please remember a few things that sighted people do such pointing and saying over there or that one etc. I usually say ok over there where or ok which one. Be specific in the answers. Also keep things in one spot.
I agree you are to be commended for wanting a relationship, most high tail it and run.
In all new relationships you just have to talk, share and understand.
Some of our world is very regimented such as having things in one spot or walking in a certain way or how we tactle everyday things.
Please do not fall in the trap of following her around and doing things for her just let her do it and when she needs assistance she will ask as long as she knows and feels she can ask without feeling like she is bothering you. I dont mean you would but sighted forget we can sense a sigh or feel vibs if you will.
I wish you both the best.


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Hey friend,
I admire you for wanting to do the right "things". That shows that you are a compassionate person. :)
I agree with everyone's posting before me. Just be yourself and let her be herself. The only thing that I"d like to add is this...when getting to know a "friend" who may be your soul mate...don't look for someone you can live with (ie: their ways), but someone you can't live without.
Prayers are for you all, my friend.
In Christ,

Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



I am new to this site. I came on here looking to maybe get some help. I just recently met this guy and I really care about him alot. He is completely blind. This does not bother me at all, or any of my family, as I have already told them about him. He is a great person, and to me the true person lies within anyway, but I have never been around someone who doesn's see. I have a special needs child, but not a blind son, so someone diffrent, does not bother me in the least bit. He amazes me everyday, with the things he is able to tell me, things he notices, things that I can see, yet I do not notice. I guess the only thing I would like to really learn about is, I am not to sure what we can do together. I mean there are plenty of things we do now, but we can not go to the movies, or watch tv, I guess I already kinda know in my heart, it does not really matter to me what we are doing, as long as we are doing it together. Can someone tell me, how do people without their site, preceive things? He wasn't always blind, he was in a car accident, and lost his site that way. I would appreciate any advice anyone could give me, I really enjoy his company, and I would love to see this last a lifetime. Thank you in advance to anyone who might be able to help me.


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



My question comes from the other way around - what kinds of things/concerns does a person that is blind have when considering dating a person that isn't?


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Hi. I really enjoyed many of the responses I read on this topic. I'm sighted and have been working on a novel about a sighted man who falls in love with a blind woman.
Some of the responses posted have helped me develop my sighted character. If anyone wants to give me advice on my blind character please email me at

Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



I am a sighted man and I do not have a relationship with a blind or VI female. I envy you who do, for that is a great desire of mine- and I don't know exactly why, but I believe it is from the Lord. I have such a desire to meet, help, be with and love a woman such as this. I do not know much about blindness, but I do know that love between a man and a woman is between them, and not between them and their parents- of course it is very important to honor our parents- we do so without fear of what they'll think and with pride about who we have found to love and who loves us in return.


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Hello all my name is Brian, and I have fallen in love with a woman that has been blind her whole life. We are both Christians. I want to say that she has had some very abusive relationships and I would like any suggestions on how to make her feel as special as she is other than the obvious. What do I need to learn to be helpful, what should I shy away from? Any suggestions,comments would be greatly appreciated and anyone can email me at bhart852007@yahoo.com. God Bless you all, you are certainly a very special people.


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



I am too dating and in love with a blind (from birth) guy... Im not blind nor VI...I liked him since I first met him, he is so full of life and we both love music. I think the relationships is all pretty much the same as with a sighted couple, we laugh, we sing, we cry, we talk all day and night if possible and we fall in love the same way too. We are both christians and we are even thinking of finding a church were we are both welcomed. I sing at my current church and he plays the piano at his. The reason why we need a new church its because we are both moving from different countries to be closer together. I would like some advice and information about how to deal, live and go about with a blind person, b/c I have never experienced this before. Oh and he is going to Daytona fl to start his independent life... and I am too moving to FL to start my independent life (he is 23 years old and Im 22) since this is all new to me... any advice please!!??

Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Hello. My name is James. I am in my mid-forties. I am divorced and like one of the other gentlemen on here, I've wanted a relationship with a blind woman. I'm very nurturing, and would love to have a commited and loving relationship that last forever. If anyone here is, or knows of a single blind woman that is marriage-minded, please feel free to write to me. I'm not too particular about age. I just want someone that wants to be loved that loves me back. Please email me at: moonrocket123@aol.com Thanks


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



There's a girl I know that I believe I'm really falling in love with, but me being the shy type I don't know how to tell her. She's blind (since birth), but a great personality, is beautiful, and has an amazing singing voice. She also plays the flute in band. Josh, I envy you, brother. If I even had had the courage to ask her out, I might be able to give you some advice, though the people here seem to be doing that just fine.


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



By the way, if anybody could give me some tips, I would appreciate it. freshfighter4@hotmail.com or freshfighter4@hotmail.com (also, please tell me that you're from this site or I might accidently delete it).


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Hello! I just heard this posting and found it interesting. I do not have much experience in relationships and only may contribute as a person who became blind. To me as a female who happens to be blind it is important to be heard and to hear, to have some one to talk to, to have laughter. To be asked how was my day and etc, etc, etc. I haven't been successful as it ends having me being the only one listening and not even being asked how am I doing . I hear my friends having this amazing relationships and I know for sure one day it has to happen in a natural way. My advice is: Talk to your partner, blind or not please talk to your partner.


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person

Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Hello, I am a sighted woman falling in love with a blind man. He is a wonderful man, very sexy, very loving and I love to be with him. Right now I'm struggling inside with what our life would be like. I'm someone who always wanted to be with a man who is big and strong and is the "man" in every sense of the word. I'm almost afraid that he won't be able to be the "Man of the house" I need to feel safe and protected if that makes sense. I also wonder what types of things we can do as someone else mentioned. Thanks so much for all your responses


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



All I can say in response to the last post is do not under estimate him. He may not be able to see or see well but his other senses are most likely heightened. All that one can ask is for trust, loyalty, and honesty. Given the situation, am definitely sure he will dig deep to find some sort of resource he has access to.

If it concerns you that much then my best suggestion would be just to sit down with him and talk it out. Communication is paramount in any relationship and is even double or 10x as important with a blind or VI person. Blind or VI people may not be able to do the exact same thing as sighted people are but I can guarantee you that we are resourceful.

I myself am visually impaired since birth and have had a hard time with relationships. I am looking to find the love of my life as I am 29 and would eventually like to settle down and get married. So if anyone has any suggestions for dating tips or advice it would be appreciated. If anyone wants to chat via skype or IM reach me at sublimetech007


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Hi, I am a VI female who recently met a VI male on www.datingdisabled.net. This is an excellent Web site because people are sincere about finding someone that can accept them. We are talking long distance on the phone right now, and I'll be meeting him in person soon. Like many others, I think the most important factor in having a good relationship is good communication. Thiere are things that I can do that he can't and vice versa. No one can tell you that but the other person, and some things you notice on your own. Just make sure that you treat them as a person first. Ask what kinds of things they like to do and how they do it. Don't assume they can't watch tv or movies or enjoy going out. Though your partner can't see or can see just a little, they can hear and touch and experience activities. They're not dead, after all, and deserve the same love and happiness as anyone else. If you have that to offer and are willing to work for it, the rewards outweigh any hardship.

Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



I just met a sexy, shy, and blind from birth girl with long blonde hair all the way down to her waist and dark blue eyes and long eyelashes, and has a ChineseYe attatched to her from birth she has to use a cane because she's blind, she also has beautiful golden ring earrings. She is a teenager aged 14, and I am 17, by the way, and we are about to get married this Saturday. Anyway, my advice to you is just to get to know her.


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Your 17 and marrying a 14 year old? You must not live in the United States as that would likely be illegal. Anyway, I think it's great that your in love with a blind girl but your way too young to be married and should wait several more years.

Anyway, I too came to this site looking for advice. I recently began communicating with a blind woman on eHarmony and haven't had much experience with women let alone with one that is blind, but I think I want to meet her and see what happens. She's in England at the moment spending time with family and training for the Olympics in swimming. We seem to have a lot in common and have similar goals in life such as marriage and family. But like I said, i've never been in a relationship with a blind or VI person and do not fully know what to expect. But reading the comments on this website has helped me out a bit and I hope to meet her one day soon.


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



Hi I am from Thailand and been living in NZ for the last 11 years. I have met an AUS blind man about 3 months ago. I am 39 and he is 50. So we get on very well. He came to visit me twice. I was a bit nervous because I never deal with blind person before.
The first time he came visit we went for holiday around nz for a week and we did have sex. The second time he came visit and we start to have relationship. Now we are engage and will be married by the end of Oct this year. He is very independent,smart and got a good heart. That kind of the man I want to have in my life. It was hard for the start that I don't know what to do and how to do with the blind person but then later on I did learn and still learning. So he will come visit me again early next month then we will have holiday and see around nz visit my friends around the south island.
He been searching for a good woman in his life and finally he found me and he was right only a smart man that will know how good i am and appreciated. So we are very happy together. After married then we will move to thailand and be with my family. He want to retired in nz when we get older so we will end up in nz somehow.
Thank you for reading my story.
Please feel free to any comment or advises.
Jira


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



I dated and ended up marrying a blind man. We met online and he didn't tell me for a bit that he was VI. Once he did he ask if it made a difference I said no. I was nervous if I would do, say be what he wanted/needed. Once we meet all my fears went away. He was amazing and still is. He is strong, smart, funny, wonderful man - he just happens to be blind. Him being blind has molded him into the man he is and I love him dearly. He has opened my eyes and my family to things we didn't know. My parents are so proud of have him for a son in law and I am proud to have him for a husband.

Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



I have not dated a blind woman nor have I even been around when one was in the area. Because I have not even met a blind woman I am just guessing but I would think that they would trust you more and have more faith in your decisions.


Re:Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



dating a blind girl is quite challenging well every date is challenging due that we will have only 1. Being blind is really hard for them to do things that we do us sighted people. First out on a date don't think shes blind and you should have sex with her. but treat her like a girl friend that is sighted. Go out with dinner or watch a movie. if you chocse a movie well she can hear right? but that was not to be mean or anything but just be nice and let her listen she will catch on. back then people went to the beach and all that for dating but now. people do dates with there @##$% and @#%$@% for dating. trust me you don't want to see the last 2 words. Back to the topic. Blind girls want to be treated like normal girls. due to the fact that there blind that people spoil her to much. Hope everyone has a good relationship with your blind girl.


Re: Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



I was at church and noticed a 40 yr old blind girl for the longest time at church. She is so nice to people and they might say hello and pretty much run off. I started siting with her at church, and dont understand why people would avoid her. Well (Im'48) after a few weeks she asked me if I would go with her for coffee after church. I did and started dating her. We are like peas and carrots now. We do everything together. I simply do not understand why people are so wierd. She is the most wonderful person I have ever met. Ive never dealt with blind people before and I guess it just came naturaly to me. After about a year I asked her to marry me or did she ask me. I dont remember. She sees me better than anyone I have ever known. We have had no issues or problems at all.


Re: Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person

if anybody have any idea about it or know anyone plz let me know.
i am 26 m london.


Re: Dating A Blind Person&Relationship with a blind person



From what little I know about rajanoml52. Why do you think you need to make them feel happy? What makes you think they are not happy to begin with. And what is the we stuff. Myself I believe you need to leave them alone. They do not need pity. They only need understanding.
