Deaf Girl on TV

Well, well, well, it’s been an odd week of manifestation for Deafinitely Girly.

Firstly, I was walking down the street and was thinking how much I’d like some watermelon. Two seconds later, a promotional person from Rubicon handed me a carton of Watermelon juice.

Then, I thought, wouldn't it be fab if I could catch up with an old friend of mine who I haven't seen for ages. Cue an email from her asking if she could come and stay for a week.

Oooh-er, I'm onto something here, I thought, and quickly wondered what else I should wish for...

World peace? Reckon I'm gonna need some more practice to get that.

Winning the lottery? Not convinced that's a recipe for happiness to be honest...

Love?

Well, why not? Why can't Deafinitely Girly find love?

I wished for love! Not necessarily lasting, show-stopping love... just a little bit... a life-enhancing sliver to brighten up my day.

And look what arrived in my email inbox today:

‘Are you looking for love? Would you like to meet the person of your dreams? Do you have a sensory, physical, or a long term condition?

Here at ‘betty’ we’re making a highly romantic, up-beat & insightful observational documentary series for Channel 4 which will follow disabled people and those with a variety of conditions in the highs and lows of their quest to find love. We very much hope to be able to film some happy endings. The intention is also to explore and challenge some of the barriers, issues and prejudices that are faced.

An existing personal introduction agency, taking advice when necessary from experts in disability and other conditions, will be matching people on common interests, likes and dislikes. The agency is fully inclusive, with both disabled and non-disabled people on its books.

If you would like the chance to meet your match and are interested in taking part get in touch with us on 020 7907 0863 or 07503 805614 or dating@betty.co.uk

Whoa! Perhaps I should get wanting to win the lottery after all!

Anyway, despite the fact that I am looking for love, being an anonymous blogger, I'm not overly eager about the idea of trying to find it on national television. But, I thought some of you lot might be! Who knows, this could be your lucky day? And then I can make like Cilla Black, lay claim for having set you on your path to true love, have a lorra lorra laughs and buy a hat to your wedding.

Let me know if you apply peeps... and I'll follow your journey from the safety of my sofa, while trying to manifest my ideal man!

Hi DG,
I think you are going to do better on your own. In America we have these reality TV dating shows and the results are usually a disaster. It sounds as if these producers have good intentions, but I would recommend holding onto your anonymity. Maybe you could manifest a blog post about the ideal man. That would be an interesting read.
Hugs,
Sarah
