I met a guy online at the start of June and we have been talking everyday via text since. We both really like each other and can't wait to meet up. The only problem I have is that I haven't told him I walk with crutches and have a knee brace because I'm scared it will put him off me. No guy has turned me down for this before but I'm still worried. I live on my own, drive and work in retail so there isn't really anything I can't do. What should I do? Have I left it too late to say anything now?

It's important that you tell him the truth. The worst thing is to surprise someone with something like that. Now, let me be clear that there is nothing wrong with you, but some people have certain perceptions about people with handicaps. Meeting people online is not like meeting people in real life. You don't get to see the face value of who you're talking to. When I pick up a girl in the library, or the street, or a hundred other places, I can see how she stands, how she smiles, all the details of meeting someone for the first time, which is why I'm usually against online. But doing online dating isn't the worst thing. And if you go about it, you need to keep the full scope of what, and who, you are meeting. It's great you found someone who you are interested in, who is showing you a similar interest. But don't forget to be honest. It's something personal to you, but just tell him exactly how you told all of us. That you do have to use crutches, but you still function as a normal person. Because you are a normal person. Don't be afraid of being yourself, presenting yourself as you are, human. I know you don't want to be blunt about it, but there is no 'around the bush' way of telling someone that. Just say simply, I don't want to surprise you when we meet, but I use crutches. And when he has more questions, just answer them. It'll be fine.2
