Challenges of dating a man in a wheelchair
Hopefully, your answer to the question in the title of this post is an unhesitant: "Yes, of course, I would. What matters to me is who is sitting in it." Unfortunately, in my experience, most people don't seem to feel that way, unless they themselves are confined to a wheelchair.Honestly: would you openly date and marry a person confined to wheelchair?But maybe your worry is not the sex but what your friends and family would think and say.They should not be concerned about your love life, but if they are, here is a good comeback if you do decide to go against the norm: If I had been in an accident and were in a wheelchair, I suppose you would find it inappropriate for me to find love? If you are a caring parent, you would never think that way about your own child.You will not be caring for them as a full time job.It’s perfectly fine to address a potential partner and ask them if they require help from outside sources with their daily needs.
The most realistic answer to these questions is that even if the hottest girl at the party were the girl in the wheel chair, you would check out the second-hottest girl. But people have walked on fire to get a girl (or guy) they were attracted to.Anne Thomas " data-medium-file="https://tbmwomenintheworld2016.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/alexander-photo-2-131.jpg? w=300" data-large-file="https://tbmwomenintheworld2016.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/alexander-photo-2-131.jpg? w=1024" / Recently a friend asked me how my love life was going and I drew a blank. In 1976, at the age of 18, I dropped out of college after three semesters and went hitchhiking alone in Europe—to find myself. It’s not just that I’m 57: I also live with a disability.No way was I going to allow myself to be shut away from life.I wanted an education, a career, adventure, love, and sex.
