Meghan Larson of disability-friendly New York City was devastated to learn that her blind boyfriend, Lance, wasn't that blind - and had been seeing another woman for over a year.
"They say love is blind, and it was literally true in my case," said Meghan. "My one true love was blind as a bat - or so I thought! It meant so much to me that he didn't love me for my looks."
Lance Davis, however, had a slightly different version of events to tell. He claims that over the course of their eight-year relationship, Meghan had very much let herself go. "I'm only legally blind," he explained. " I can see a little bit - enough to know she'd gotten really fat and had a face made for radio. Not to be harsh."
Another factor, said Lance, was the one-sided nature of his and Meghan's communication. "She assumed that because I'm blind, my hearing is that much better, and that all I wanted to do was listen," he said. "She barely let me get a word in."
Difficulties notwithstanding, Meghan hasn't given up on the relationship altogether. "I just hope that he doesn't lose sight of what we have," she said. "I'm not that fat. And someone needs to tell him that other girl looks like shit."
