No need to use the entire bottle of Hugo Boss, but enough that she may want to come closer to smell you a little more?
Saved you the trouble of having to be with someone so shallow and heartless. Showed her true colors. I agree with you- I think blind people can "see" us better than we can. They see what truly matters, which is our inside. Sometimes I think this world would be a better place if all of us looked the same and all we focused on was people's personalities. Dude I thought my girlfriend was outta my league, confidence man, confidence.
I like your answer. I like that you were real and honest- I'm sure some people on here just said they would but they didn't think about the challenges the situation would bring. I definitely agree- they would be so interesting to talk to.
I would love to know how they "see" the world.

Unfortunately, I've found that many women are shallow, and for some reason the lack of eyesight or enough vision to do things that a sighted person does on a daily basis bothers them. For instance, driving an automobile. Sure, and while it's not fair that I can't drive due to my eyesight, but I shouldn't be penalized by a woman because of it.

Now I am hoping that someday medical research will break through and help me and others see again or for the first time. I am 33 years old, and I've been "visually impaired" for almost 4 years. I was engaged when my accident happened, and the girl left a few months after I was told my vision could not be repaired.
You would think after knowing someone for 4. But the day she left, she looked at me and said that she wanted a husband that could see her and her children someday. It's something I'll never forget. Since that time, I've tried to meet people, either through online dating, or when out with friends, but when I tell women or they learn that I am visually impaired, they lose intrest in me, and that's to bad.

I live my life as normal as I am able to, sometimes I have to find ways of enjoying things a bit differently than when I had eyesight, but I still get enjoyment.
It's to bad that most women can't see past my lack of eyesight to get to know me.

I'd date a deaf one, too, but I guess I'd have to learn sign language. I'd also date someone paralyzed. If you like someone a lot those things shouldn't matter. I'm sure it will be more interesting to hear what guys have say though. Great question!

Other times, I thought it would be easier to date a sighted person, someone who could alleviate some of the challenges that go along with blindness. But then when in a relationship with a sighted person, I would start questioning why I was with this person and why he was with me. Is he with me because he likes to play the protector?
Is he with me because he has low self esteem and doesn't think he can get a sighted person? Am I with this person because I am afraid to be alone? When in a relationship with a blind person, I found myself asking similar types of questions. Do we have anything in common besides our blindness? Am I in this relationship because I don't think a sighted person could accept my blindness?
If I stay in this relationship, how are we going to manage as a blind couple? There are many reasons why people enter into relationships with others, and we as blind students are just as likely to enter into relationships for the wrong reasons.
However, we can make this less likely by possessing self-confidence and good blindness skills. For example, I won't be as likely to get into a relationship of dependency on a sighted person if I have access to readers, have good Braille and cane travel skills, and know the city bus schedule like the back of my hand.
Likewise, I won't be as likely to enter into a relationship of safety with a blind person if I have the self-confidence to be blind on my own. In other words, as in any relationship, you have to be happy with yourself before you can make another person happy.
The better your blindness skills, the less your blindness becomes an issue in any relationship. Both sighted and blind persons will respect you more if you have self-confidence and good blindness skills.
And isn't that what Doctor Jernigan, Doctor Maurer, and our other mentors from the National Federation of the Blind have been telling us for years? It is respectable to be blind.
