Specialized Dating by kalyani10 Being visually challenged prevents a person from making use of one of the most important senses. And yet despite the host of challenges, with practice of blindness skills and availability of facilities for the differently-abled, many blind people are able to lead a fulfilling life.
So if you are thinking of asking someone nice who happens to be blind or are already dating a visually challenged person, here are a few things to keep in mind. When you are out with a blind person, you may have to get used to stares and whispers since not everyone understands that being different is not a sign of inferiority. Be prepared to make adjustments However all the sensitivity in the world cannot make you wish away certain limitations that dating a blind person will involved.
Also when planning dating activities, you have to keep in mind what your partner will and will not enjoy — like instead of going for a tour of your city museum or a classy art gallery, get tickets to a concert or a musical performance for your date. Most recreational sports, like bowling or mini-golfing, will be out of the question though your date may be a good swimmer and an avid jogger.
Explore other senses Even though you cannot plan a date around a visual experience like watching a movie or ballet performance, there are still many senses that you can explore with your partner. For instance spending a balmy day at a park or a garden will not only enable the sighted partner to partake of the fantastic colors and designs of the flowers and trees but also allow the visually challenged to take delight in the fragrances of the blossoms as well as the fresh feel of the outdoors.
Similarly you can sign up for sculpture or pottery classes for couples where you and your partner can have fun experimenting with the texture and shape of the clay or other materials instead of focusing only its looks like in painting. Again karaoke bars and dance clubs are other places where you can have an enjoyable date with someone who cannot see well or at all since it is enough to feel the rhythm with the ears and the body for you to get grooving.
The exploration of other senses is particularly relevant if you want to come off as attractive to your partner. For a blind person it is not so important that your hair is perfectly styled or that your scarf goes with your jacket.
Rather you should choose and wear perfumes which will appeal to your partner. Come dressed in soft and smooth fabrics like velvet and good quality wool which you partner is likely to touch and feel nice about.

Angel Olz leapt forward, pompoms extended to plug the widening hole… But, he was too late. There was a disturbance in the air, a waft of intoxicating perfume before the gin and tonic splashed into my face. I sighed, sucked at my damp collar and thought, not for the first time: People will often avoid asking the questions which they should ask. We need to get the big awkward questions out the way so we can move on, especially in the dating situations.
Blind people , aim debunk these points of contention and, hopefully, in my own little way, make the world just that little bit better. As an aside, a girl did actually make me feel her face at the weekend, she then felt mine even though she could see. So, to all the girls out there that wonder what the benefits of dating a blind guy are, here goes: Hey, you do it for me.
I make you look good.
