Simply put, I'm a cripple. I use an electric wheelchair to get around, but despite this, I'm fully independent. Everything works sexually, but still women seem put off. I understand it to be honest, I probably would if I was them too. I'm wondering though, who here would date a guy (or girl if you're that way inclined) who used a wheelchair?
It's hypothetical, but I'm pretty sure I'd be OK with it. I tutored disabled people in college. There was one lady I had considered asking out. She wasn't severely disabled, but I don't think it would have mattered if it was more severe like a quadriplegic. We got along really well, and there was sexual attraction. So there was both sides.
Initial attraction is the first step. That's just the way it is. You need to get past that step. It might be an initial hurdle, but I truly believe that most people will see past your disability fairly quickly. I don't think it's a mountain you need to climb, just a small hill.
if s/he had the traits i look for in a partner, then yes.
one of my best friends from high school used a wheelchair, and i never thought of her as a "cripple"~ she was just one of the group. before she died, she told me that romantic interests did judge her for it, and all i could think of was how sad it was that they were missing out on someone who was seriously awesome.
you'll find the right person soon enough, and they will see past the wheelchair. sending good vibes your way :)
Yes, yes, yes. As long as he loves me, and i love him, i dont think that anything can keep us apart. Love is a basic, human need and looks beyond the physical imperfections. Its purely emotional, and we can't control it. Thats the most beautiful part. I believe you're a beautiful person, and you are deserving of someone perfect and suited to you.(:
Probably not, because I spend more times in the woods hiking at night, or crawling around in abandoned buildings than anywhere else. I'm into paranormal investigation, and I'm a city ghost tour guide, so urban exploration is inevitable. Lot's of stairs, ladders, and impossible parkcour shit.
But if my BF/Husband became disabled, I would stay with him.
Depends on the person, but I'd say most people wouldn't really go and talk to a cripple in fear of offending them. I fear that they might feel devalidated because I spoke to them in an unpleasant way, even though I probably treated them like any other human.
I'd consider dating them, yeah. Depending on why they're cripple though, for future plans😂
Probably not. I think I wouldn't get into a relationship with someone who is in an electric chair. But if I was with someone who got into an accident or something that resulted in them being chair bound, I would stand by them.
Sorry to hear about that man. Simply put, most women are attracted to confidence, plain and simple. So as long as you don't let your situation hold you back, or "define" you, then I guarantee it's only a matter of time. Your post is more sincere and optimistic than half the other douche bags asking dumb questions on this site, so I'd say you're already well on your way. Keep doing what you're doing man, keep embracing life to its fullest, and you WILL reap the benefits that are owed to you.
Most crippled people will be better dating other crippled people?
Why? I'm not trying to be mean but you'll generally have more in common, aside from your disability because your lives are conditioned to cope with your disadvantages, so you'll naturally be more compatible.
It depends on your personality also as to whether others will find you open :)
