Awkward dating moments
We are still human, with feelings just like any other able-bodied person. It is perfectly normal for us to think like this, we all do it no matter what size or shape we are, it’s all part of being human and how our brain works when in a nervous or first time situation.
Unfortunately, for disabled people, dating can involve uncertainty and more than a few awkward moments. To help avoid awkward situations with your date, don’t be ashamed to educate them on your disability before actually going on the date.
It's always exciting to start a new relationship, but we often forget about the ridiculously awkward parts that accompany that just-started-dating period. How were you supposed to know he played band in high school or absolutely loves teacup poodles? You were typing in Bookstores when Google suggested "Boob Porn." I mean he obviously watches porn, most guys do.
So if you recently started seeing someone new, you might want to prepare yourself for these uncomfortable moments that you're bound to encounter within the first few months. You have no idea if it's the right time to add him on Facebook. The sex isn't perfect, but if you gave him some direction it would probably get a lot better. Now you're apologizing profusely and seriously considering buying him a tiny dog just to relieve your guilt. He offered to make you a home-cooked meal, but you're vegan/gluten-free/deathly allergic to shellfish.
A lot of nervousness may also be from your own body confidence; I know this from my own experience.

Joey was really smitten with Flo – well, he was until they went out for drinks and she burped in his face.Although she repeatedly tried to reassure Victoria that there was no way Calum would stand her up, he did. Unfortunately, that romance didn't work out and we hear he's now single again.Headshot of Phil and his girlfriend in the park " data-medium-file="https://scopesblog.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/11911-eta-blog-image-phil.jpg?Something as simple as taking my shirt off in a public swimming pool would never happen.It’s important to be confident in yourself by not being ashamed of your appearance, at the end of the day, we all come in different shapes and sizes, it’s something we should embrace and be positive about.
One of the biggest issues caused by feeling awkward or embarrassed is a lack of communication.
