Dating with a disability: Extra help on offer for singles in search of love – ABC News
When Nemoy Malcolm arrived at Sydney Airport after a long journey from his home in the US, he knew exactly who he was looking for.
Feeling a mixture of excitement and trepidation, Nemoy — who lost his vision in his teens — asked a flight attendant to help him find “the woman with the dog”.
That woman was Krystal Keller, who was also blind. The pair had developed a strong connection over eight months of conversations online, and decided to take the plunge and see if their relationship worked as well in real life.
Nemoy described Krystal’s outfit to the flight attendant as they searched the arrivals hall.
“I didn’t think it was going to be a problem finding her until we found the woman with the dog [and] she wasn’t wearing the outfit she said she would,” Nemoy said.
It was the first time the pair had ever met, but Nemoy said it felt like they’d known each other for years.
