I haven't been on a date in almost two years. I was paralyzed and was in the hospital when I was dating my ex. He cheated on me while I was in there battling an illness and when I got out of the hospital; he would stand me up and would not be seen with my in my wheelchair. He broke up with me on my birthday saying that he couldn't love a cripple. Needless to say, my heart was broken because we were engaged. Since then I have learned to walk with the help of braces on my legs. Most guys I meet freak out when they see my legs, so I haven't really been out in a while. I decided to try online dating, and I met a guy that i like. He asked me out for tomorrow night and I'm excited but nervous. He knows about my legs, but I'm fearful that he won't like me because of them. Have you any suggestions on how I could be me confident? or what things impress a man on a first date? What should I wear with my braces on my legs? Something sexy or practical? I need all the help I can get. Thanks in advance.

I have a friend in late braces (cerebral palsy) who is also pretty self conscious about her legs. I have never seen her without full length pants on but from what I hear her sex life is not too bad. My point is that if you can find someone who can look past something as insignificant as a problem with your legs you will be golden. No, it will probably not happen right away but there is no reason to think that it will not happen.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

First of all well done you for getting back out there.
My advice with dating is do not go into it with expectations it is just a date, a guy you've never met and so if it doesn't go well you have nothing to lose. I guess that being said just go into it without pressure/expectation and have the aim to just have a good time out with a nice guy.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
