Dating woman stuttering
About 18 months later she became my wife and I became an “instant parent”.
At the end of January 2011, it will be 25 years we’ve been married.
Later in the conversation, I ask Jeroen to introduce himself and we chat a bit.
Jeroen Vuijk works for the local government in Rotterdam, and gives us a great perspective of what it’s like to date a woman who stutters.
Lotte talks about what it’s like to stutter in The Netherlands and how its perceived.
We talk about therapy, shame, negative reactions, acceptance, and being able to communicate freely and confidently.
The young man ponders will it ever be possible for him to find someone who will be happy with him as he is. Several people responded to 27-year-old Justin, and one man in particular shared his very personal story about his own fears and insecurities. Dear Justin, I have stuttered since I was 5 years old (I’m now 53), so I’ve been doing it so long I’ve gotten rather good at it.When I was on my motorcycle, I could talk to anyone, but once I got off, the stuttering came back full force.I graduated high school and went to college for a couple of years, but I couldn’t handle the stress of so many “new” people I saw and/or met everyday.I went to the reunion under protest as I didn’t associate much with anyone back then and re-met the “love of my life”.She and her two kids (girl-7, boy-4) were in an abusive relationship and she was trying to get out with the kids.
