That can take a few conversations from my experience to get that through. Are dyslexics true to themselves by hiding their dyslexic difficulties when dating? My husband tries to explain to people that he is dyslexic and that sometimes they will need to talk slowly or repeat something to help him. I have know I am dyslexic since I was in 1 first grade. I know from my own children, that very quickly children avoid others that seem a bit slow or backwards. I would be lying if I said I do not use it as an excuse.
The Dyslexia Experience Difference, Disclosure.
Dating a Dyslexic Person
You will start to appreciate educational television programming more than ever because your significant other regularly tunes into History, National Geographic, and The Discovery Channel, great sources of learning through seeing and hearing as opposed to reading. So if you have met somebody you like and then found out that they are dyslexic, you may have to initiate contact - maybe more than once initially — so that that they gradually develop confidence to open up. Often a dyslexic person feels more anxious throughout the day than any other differently-abled person and this translates into a greater inability to perform mundane tasks or chores around the house. Thus the less you depend on the written word for communicating with your partner, the easier it will be for both of you. And their partners deal with the detail and the little things like money.
