Dating with a disability
I was one of those people who rushed it in the beginning, and that did not end in my favor.
Be confident in all of the kinks and quirks your body has, because if you do not accept them, it’s a very safe bet that your partner won’t either.
According to society, disabled people are undesirable and therefore can never be “dating” or partner material. As someone with cerebral palsy myself, I think I hopefully can try to tackle this subject with some first hand experience!
First off, coming from a female’s perspective: dating is in 2016, regardless of whether or not you are disabled.
Disability Dating Club.com, simplifies the search for that special someone.
I have been working on building my self-confidence for a long time now, and I am finally in a good place, so I promise you it can happen! what happens when you are ready to date because you are confident in yourself and your self worth?
Anyone that knows me knows that I love my quiet time alone (you can probably find me binging on Netflix), casual wine nights IN, I am so terrified of setting foot in clubs or big bar scenes, I have strong negative views of “hook up” culture, and I would just prefer to fly way under the radar.
I do want to talk about dating with disabilities though, because I believe that this topic is super important. Discussing dating with disabilities is important, because often society views the disabled population as inferior and almost non-existent.
The first time I was disclosing to my boyfriend at the time was one of the most nerve-wracking things I have even done. I had created all of these fictitious scenarios in my mind that just screamed ideas like: “ you won’t be accepted anymore”, “he won’t accept your CP and you won’t feel safe”, “he could do so much better” and the list when on and on at the time!
Another important aspect of disclosure is to your partner.
The only limitations are the ones you put on yourself.
