Or the next Oscar Pistorius (sans the killing part) or the next Peter Dinklage, the hottest and most brilliant actor on "Game of Thrones." Don't assume you're superior to us, because frankly, you're not..all.Name: Cara Liebowitz, 23City: Long Island, New York Disabilities: Cerebral palsy, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and asthma Job: Freelance writer and blogger Her biggest dating challenges: Honestly? It’s really hard to maintain a romantic relationship (never mind sexual), when you hardly ever see the person. Will I have enough battery power in my scooter to get there and back?
But I have dated men who were weaker in character than I am physically.
Men who can't part from their mothers, men who cried like children at the drop of a hat, men who were one-minute men or selfish in bed, men who couldn't get a job, and grown men who still lived at home with their parents. On dating able-bodied men: The struggle is the sense of feeling inferior, particularly with regard to his family or friends.
Having a disability can cause many annoyances in day to day life, in the Enable Dating community you will find the opposite is true.
Online dating removes physical barriers, and we provide a place to meet where the social barriers also melt away.
I think my favorite memories are those memories where my disabilities and access needs were really accepted and accommodated. But it’s presented as ' This non-disabled person could have gotten anyone, and they chose a disabled person.' It’s objectifying as all hell.
The first time I fell in front of one of my boyfriends, I was super nervous about how he’d react. But he said “I’m sorry I didn’t catch you,” and my heart just melted. We don’t need non-disabled people to do “special” things for us, so if you’re genuinely interested in us, great!
Membership is totally free, we won't ask for your credit card details and you will be able to instantly browse profiles and become involved.
Whatever your disability dating isn't something you should be missing out on!
