I didn’t realise my date was a wheelchair user – now what?

Ask Roe: He is handsome and funny, but I have questions about dating, holidays, sex, babies etc. Do I ask him?

Dear Roe,

I matched with a wheelchair user on Tinder, he is very handsome and very funny. But I didn’t know he was disabled as it wasn’t in his profile, and I’m unsure what to do. I have questions in my head – dating, holidays, sex, babies etc. Do I ask him or is it a case of “next”? I feel awful thinking like this.
