Dating when you are disabled dating poems for him
I have been lucky and I am incredibly grateful for that; every guy who I have dated has been so gracious when I told them about cerebral palsy, and what that means for how my body functions, and they all have said that CP is really a non-issue for them.It funny thinking about how I was treated, because I am now reflecting on the fact that there may have been some level of self-sabotage on my end which ultimately led to some dating demise.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.Please allow your child to discover themselves, even if that leads to dating disappointments.If anything, I really think it helps establish high standards which you all so deserve. Anyone who is worthy of your companionship will accept you. You may have to “strike out” a few times in the dating scene before you succeed. Remain optimistic no matter the obstacles, and the results you want will manifest quicker than if you wallow in sadness.
First off, coming from a female’s perspective: dating is in 2016, regardless of whether or not you are disabled.
If they have questions about your disability, answer them as truthfully as you can. Support your partner as much as they are supporting you.
I promise that disability does not become the be-all or end-all of a relationship if your connection is genuine.
Those of us with disabilities have a little extra step to tackle with our partners.
This is a tough topic to give advice on, because it really is so subjective for each individual.
