The photos I used weren't cropped weirdly or anything — if you looked closely you could see it, but you wouldn't maybe notice it.
I never did that in an attempt to deceptive, I just wanted people to get to know me as a person and not me as a person in a wheelchair.
I really think the way these guys treated me just has a lot to do with the stigma that's attached to being in a wheelchair because so many people look at you and they automatically assume certain things.
In my everyday life, I so often feel like people treat me differently when they find out I'm disabled.
I work in PR and most of my clients are far away and most of them don't know about my disability and I'm happy about that because I want them to expect the same things from me that they would expect from any other publicist.
So I felt the same way about my online dating profile.
The first Tinder date I went on, I didn't tell the guy that I was disabled before we got together.
When I first went on Tinder, I just thought, , but then I felt like I had to view myself as a disabled person instead. I got rid of Tinder after that because even though it wasn't all bad, it just wasn't making me feel good overall.
