Harriett Heiney came to Indiana Central College (now U of Indy) in 1961 as a totally blind freshman. I met her in Music Theory class. As a normally sighted guy who had never really met a blind person. After an initial “wanna go to the college Brown County picnic day” sorta non-date, we started dating. We got engaged in October of our junior year and married the day before graduation. We’re now nearing our 46th anniversary. My advice would be to be as socially out there as possible. College, church, singles mingling activities, etc. Also, her totally blind sister met her sighted husband at work.
