    I am a 23 year old female and I have been using dating apps for about a month or so.

    I have a significant number of disabilities, but I didn’t reveal them in my bios. I am self-conscious about them and believe that revealing them lowers my chances at finding someone.

    Is this omission a good idea?

    I feel that my disabilities are my business alone as it pertains to my medical history, but I do worry that people I meet on dating apps would want to know about them.

    Hi Alice,

    Yes, given that you have a significant number of disabilities, you should disclose them on your bios. You don’t have to go into detail about them, but you should let a potential match know about them.

    By keeping them undisclosed, you could easily find yourself in a position where you have built really good chemistry with someone that you have gone on multiple dates with, only to have the person choose to end their relationship with you after finding out about your disabilities.

    It’s understandable that you worry that revealing your disabilities could lower your chances in finding someone. However, being honest about them is still a better strategy.

    You are not on dating apps to match with everyone. You are on them to match with the right person for you. There are people who won’t have an issue with your disabilities as long as you are upfront and honest about them in your bio. Trust in that.
