Should a disability be in a persons profile?Page 2 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Hey I have a disability, it isn't apparent, it isn't physical....!!!

Am I going to go around and tell people I'm nuts, crazy, weird, off the wall.... and a man!

Heck, no I'm going to see if they can see it for themselves... and if they don't ....
Muhahahahahaha ,.... the lil devil in me will just "come out"..muhahahahahah

Foot note: I in no way mean to be derogatory or insulting to those with bonifide challanges, regardless of the condition. The above was meant for pure neandruthul humour from a MAN with potentially very poor taste.... and timeing and.... well the list is long... which is why I posted in the first place....

< Yaeh I know I deserve one in da smooze....

I will choose who to tell about my disability, when I feel it is the right person, right time. I will not post it in open sight for people.
IMO it is not anyones business unless we have been communicating. Anyone I am not in communication with need not know.
I don't want it to be a deciding factor, either way. Some would not contact me because of it, but some would make contact because of it, to ask questions.
Nothing is lost by me not listing it, as I tell folks pretty early on. No date or meet n greet until that happens, so no big deal.

That would be helpful to people seeking someone who can relate. Someone who's going in for an operation and wants to talk to others who've had it done. Doctors may say they've done it to many people, but they can't give names and let you talk to any of them, as that's confidential. But of course they'll tell you to look on the bright side... if your doctor has 10 patients with the same condition as you, then multiply ten by the number of doctors in the phone book and there's thousands of people out there! So they think it should be easy for you to find someone! They just can't tell you.

It seems to me that the decision is completely the prerogative of the each individual, and that there is no right or wrong answer. I do think that both practical considerations and etiquette strongly favor revealing the fact that you have some sort of disability before meeting, or before too much time goes on. Only a little detail needs to be divulged. Sweet Alicya's proposal for example can be a good and even subtle method, and that can be done with a private photo.

I wish all of you the very best "fishing."
