Kristen, 30, is paralyzed from the waist down and gets around in a wheelchair.

She's single, and has lived in and dated on Tinder in three different cities — Los Angeles, Boston, and New York — and spoke with about what it's really like to Tinder date when you're paraplegic.

I was in a car accident when I was 5, when my family and I were coming home from ice skating a couple of days after Christmas, and it resulted in a spinal cord injury, so I've been in a wheelchair for a long time now.

I've usually ended up dating guys who I met in real life and my being in a wheelchair was usually never a problem in my dating life until I started meeting guys on Tinder. A., then moved to Boston for work, and now I live in New York City.

I thought my experiences with Tinder dating in different cities would be different, but weirdly, I found it was totally the same in all three cities.

When I first set up my Tinder profile, I wasn't sure if I should make my disability super obvious in my photos.

I was seen first as having a disability and this person named Lucia was just along for the ride.Since no one else ever talked to me about it, I didn’t either.
