Dating site for blind people

Taking pictures “isn’t even something that crosses my mind,” she says. Last fall, Jolliff signed up for e Harmony and Ok Cupid.“I want the ‘deeper’ connection that sites like e Harmony and to an extent, Ok Cupid, can bring,” Jolliff says.But since Jolliff can’t read a date’s body language, she tells her dates that they have to make the first move. don’t paw all over me, but there is a way you can let me know that you want to move things further than friends, so just make that move.I will let you know if I don’t want it.” Jolliff does prefer to date sighted people, she says, another contentious question in the blindness community.She’ll arrive at the restaurant early to orient herself with where the door handle to the restaurant is located or what the layout of her table is like — small things to keep her date from thinking she is incompetent or needy. Yet one thing she does need help with: Making the first move.

There are plenty of couples who are blind and have loving, complete relationships, Jolliff says.

In her e Harmony and Ok Cupid profiles, Tiffany Jolliff notes that she obsessively listens to the “Hamilton” soundtrack, loves karaoke and can make almost anyone laugh.

But Jolliff leaves out one detail that is part of her daily life: She’s blind.

But she says that dating someone sighted presents more opportunities for fun, freedom and spontaneity, taking the focus off her blindness and enabling her to just enjoy life.

“Dating as a blind woman is not all that dissimilar to dating as someone who is sighted,” Jolliff says.
