Hoping to Interview Sighted Individuals Who Are Interested in Dating Blind Individuals

I am a journalist with Columbia News Service (distributed by the New York Times distribution service) and I'm currently looking to interview sighted individuals who have a strong interest in dating someone who is blind. If you are or know of someone with this interest, please email me at lauren.b.browne@gmail.com. I would love to hear your story. Thanks!

Re:Hoping to Interview Sighted Individuals Who Are Interested in Dating Blind Individuals



I saw a blind girl named Nancy Goldsworth on television who said my name and that she would marry me. The show won't respond back to me, and I probably don't want to talk to such people either way if they are bad examples... like woman abusers, I don't associate with such people. I was taught in junior high to give a chance to a disadvantaged person like a blind girl because I am fortunate to come from a good family. I believe there are two ways to respond to such a suggestion if it ever was a question in a test, yes or no. If you respond with "yes" then you are a very smart person, if you respond with "no" then you fail. I wish to pass and responded "yes". Maybe that is why she went to the show? Is it my fault if the black man of the show used to be a bad person like Oprah? My sister from Holland has tryied to help me find that person. My whole family knows about her, and my mom supports me everytime so I don't lose my mind. Whenever I call her up at 3am in the morning she never gets mad about the nighmares I am having, thinking the girl doesn't have a hard working mother like my own who would protect her from getting raped by a 50 year old black man just for money.

I would like that, I am sighted, but I feel as if too many superficial things interfere with a good relationship. I think I would enjoy a relationship with a blind individual and feel that I was more accepted for the person I am rather then just being attractive or whatever. I might be wrong but I feel it would be a more open and honest relationship.

Loving lady;

There are many a blind man with rage issues too. Trust me, I have met a few.

Sorry about my rushed response. Even my own black teacher was only teaching us how most black people are tragedies who fail in life, like Tiger Woods and Oprah Winfrey. My psychology teacher told me how black people are actually the most racist people, especially within their own color. I've been attacked by black people @ work and luckily they are in jail now. It's not my fault they're very cruel people.

I would really be interested in finding this "Nancy Goldsworth", I hope that black man "Montel" hasn't put her in danger.

I think beauty is not only outside, but especially in the inside. I also cannot be a hipocrit since I have a blind aunt in Mexico. How hansome or beutiful you are depends how much you smile, and for what you smile... if you're hansome enough, giving an extra smile to a blind girl might make you the hansomeness person in the world, the greatest hansomness attainable in this world infact. Agreed? :D

I can definately see why you would be attacked.... by anyone with a brain.

Yah, I just found out that his show was cancelled 2008. That he was sued for sexually harrassing women, appearing in underwear at meetings, and probably more.
I don't have to pretend with anyone. I've helped a lot of black people and have black friends. They speak bad about a lot of black people they don't agree with who further demean their culture.

I have reason to be worried about... and like that woman said, there are bad blind men, so there might be bad blind girls... the kind that move their butt while walking. My mom doesn't like that and if she wants to marry me, she needs to change that.
