First Date

She already knew the result of the meeting.

Men on the dating site asked her to meet them thinking that her disability will cross out theirs. But they realise their mistake within ten minutes of the ‘conversation’.

Considering that this date was ‘normal’…

She found him waiting outside the venue. He sheepishly gestured the ‘signs’ with hands. They said, “Please bear with my clumsiness with ‘signs’. I started learning recently so that we could understand each other.”

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth! This story is very close to my heart because I have always felt that love is about making an effort to understand each other.

    1. A lot of us feel that our partner is not really listening to us. And speech challenged people get it even worse because people don’t make an effort… This was my effort to make them heard. 😁
