Kiss Awkward Goodbye This Valentine’s Day

February 13, 2015

Ouch! have more on Scope’s Valentine’s campaign and two awkward disability dating stories.

They are asking for people to share their awkward disability dating stories, so readers, I’ll share a quick one with you.

Aged 10, I sent my first Valentine’s card to a boy who was, at the time, a close friend. But- and this is probably where I went wrong- I didn’t sign it. He took one look at it and went running off down the corridor to the other Year 6 classroom, thinking it was someone from there! I think I eventually told him it was me but otherwise, I wonder if he would ever have guessed!

That may sound childish, readers, but it hurt at 10!

Scope’s Valentine’s e-cards were shared here on Tuesday but they weren’t as popular as I thought they would be then, so I thought I’d link to them here again in case you have someone to send them to who will know who sent them…

    As nice as they are, I think they actually make people look more at the disability than the person. I can’t see the point in them as a Valentine is a Valentine, no matter what 🙂 It’s all about love and the hope of finding a relationship that can last, it’s not about the way a person looks or what “differences” they have.
