But for blind and visually impaired people, emotional connections run deeper from the start. Dating while blind or visually impaired can be challenging.

Hi guys, so I'm visually impaired which means I'm legally blind. The thing is this boy from school likes me, he doesn't know I'm visually impaired because he's not in the same year as me or in any of my classes he's asked me to go to the cinema with him but the thing is, because he doesn't know about my visual impairment he wont understand that i won't be able to see the movie, also i can't quite judge what he looks like so if he's stood waiting and i'm there i won't know where he is. You're making some pretty big assumptions there. You say that just because he doesn't know you that he doesn't know about visual impairments.
