    In the past I never knew when was the best time to tell people who I am. I found out it didn’t really matter when because it always resulted in the same silence. Sometimes I would be berated for being able to ‘afford’ online dating. A computer/smart phone and internet access! Stupidly I didn’t really expect ‘sisters’ to behave like this it seems it’s ok to be ‘right-on’ if it doesn’t actually require you to do anything like actually speak to meet up with a disabled woman.
    So actually on reflection I would be up front about it straight away as it saves disappointment later.
