Advice dating paraplegic woman
I am coming from a perspective that, at my age, I don't want to add complexity to my life, and becoming involved with a wheelchair bound person would probability add such complexity.
Even the logistics of travel is complex with such a disability.
Most of the people I asked had a problem with external perception or sex. Before long he was saying get this, do that, I can't reach that.
I didn't mind picking stuff up for him but he wouldn't wait for me to finish whatever I was doing at the moment.
In fact, I could pair you up with wheelchair bound people who are likely to far outlive millions of obese Americans who smoke, don't exercse, and can barely waddle out of a Mc Donald's, even if they don't need a wheel chair.
But when dating, unlike people applying for employment - we get to use discretion on whom we can become involved with romantically and don't have to justify. Agree that a lot of the populations in the developed world (not just America) are obese.
" The good news is that we can overcome these types of implicit or not so implicit biases by standing up to the stigmas we are surrounded by.The question here is directed at non-wheelchair users (which include myself).Some of you may reply "yes," because it is in line with your ideology, because it would be politically incorrect to say "no," or because you are happily married, and there is no conceivable chance (in your mind) that you will ever date again. If you were single and went to a party that was "happening," and you spotted an attractive girl in a wheelchair (or guy in a wheelchair), would you consider chatting her up?Our family and friends are not our romantic partners.They may once in a while have good advice on love and relationships. A person in a wheelchair deviates significantly from what our family envisaged for their pristine (abled) daughter (or son).
