Unfortunately, relationships at a young age don’t aren’t everlasting, which means a breakup in on the cards.
If you have never been through one before, you might not know what to say or how to act.
Being disabled does pose challenges from time to time, but it doesn’t necessarily need to define you as a person, and it doesn’t mean that you should let it interfere with your love life.
If you feel negative about your disability, or having a hard time believing that someone could fall for you without you being able to do all the things that most other people can do, it’s not online dating you need, it’s a counsellor.
I think naturally built into our psyche is the need for human connection. With this inescapable understanding, it has always concerned me, this external pressure, of needing to peer up and find your “other half.” Clearly I know that I am lonely and I want to be understood.
Ultimately, existential loneliness is a universal experience. The ultimate driving force pushing me away from it all was the dating world in the right wing Orthodox community.
So, with that in mind, here are a few universal rules that work for any and every breakup. Everything can seem like a big deal, and that can lead to rash decisions.
Admittedly, there are certain restrictions and changes that will need to be made to accommodate the disability, but it isn’t the be-all and end-all of your life…
That’s the thing most people have trouble understanding.
You have a good job, no too-weird habits, and you have a lot to offer a guy.
You just don’t seem to have much luck meeting them, and when you do meet them, they are instantly put off by the fact that you are deaf.
