Editors note: Guest blogger Joe Strechay is the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) Career Connect Program Manager and is a prolific and well-known blogger for AFB.Joe: I have written on the American Foundation for the Blind’s Blog about online dating and how I met my wife.So, I thought I would bring this piece to you as a special Valentine's day post from my former single point of you and now from my married point of view.By utilizing some simple personal tips, I was able to keep my mingle, and I found myself no longer single.Realize that most people do not know much about it.Also be aware that your date may have already Googled information about your vision loss or blindness.I don't think this has anything to do with being visually impaired, this is to avoid messy things, preventing making a mess.
Meats are good, as long as you slice it into small pieces.Some terminology I use with people, not just for dates.If I want to ask for human guide or sighted guide, I may ask, “Can I get a tow? This is called human guide.” It is all about your comfort level, and I like to make little jokes here and there.But the main idea of the first date is to get to know each other. Be prepared to answer questions about yourself, but do not monopolize the conversation.If you have not discussed your visual impairment or blindness much, be prepared and comfortable speaking about it.
