“I am severely visually impaired but I am so able that many people don’t realise how bad my sight really is. I’m single and readily dating but I am also quite shy until I really know a person. Because of my sight I highly prioritise touch when becoming intimate with someone. How do I bring this up with someone new without looking like a creep?” – Abby, York
I would always take the honest approach Abby. I think you might find people have no worries about you preferring touch. It actually sounds rather sexy. I would just tell them you are visually impaired, and that means touch is what turns you on and see where it goes. Don’t let your worries about how people might react prevent you from finding out how they WILL react. Also if someone does react negatively then you’ve been saved from wasting time on someone obviously not right for you, so you win either way.
